Bringing Feeders In
Hummers start feeding as early as 45 minutes before sunrise. They need energy from warm food to heat up their little bodies after a cool night. As temperatures drop, remember to bring feeders inside at night and put them back out early in the morning filled with room-temperature sugar water.

"There's a frost warning tonight and a low 34 degrees forecast for tomorrow. It's time to bring our feeders in at night and back out early in the morning after refilling them with fresh sugar water."
