We live near Seattle, WA. Each year we have hummingbirds that stay all winter. Now we have had our first snowfall and very low temperatures. The nectar in the feeder freezes. So now I have 2 hummingbird feeders. I keep one inside and change them over whenever I see the outside one beginning to freeze. I bring it in at night and put it out again when the sun comes up.I have also wrapped the feeders with bubble-wrap to slow down their freezing.



I believe we have a male and female Anna's hummingbird.
