How to Keep that Hummer Feeder Going in Freezing Weather

Anna’s Hummingbirds are here year-round. In winter, some move here from nearby habitats that become too harsh to survive. Now is prime time for setting out hummingbird feeders.

Our saucer-style feeders are most popular. They are a no-drip, easy-to-clean, winter-hardy feeder with a lifetime guarantee. Hummingbirds show up at feeders well before sunrise for their first sip.

It is costly for them to come out of torpor (a hibernation-like state) only to find their feeder gone or holding frozen nectar. Adding a Hummingbird Feeder Heater can keep your nectar flowing in temperatures as low as 15–5oF. Also, tuck feeders under eaves or a dome to keep nectar rich and ports clear of snow.
