Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


Do your humming birds love slushys? Maybe you should warm your feeder up!

Though I didn’t see any hummingbirds today, but if I had I’m betting they would have been real disappointed unless they really, really like slushys. But, being I’ve never seen one outside a 7-11 with a slushy in hand, I’m going to have to go with that they like their nectar at above freezing temperatures.

Where do humming birds hum to in the winter?  I have no clue.

The last few days I've brought my hummingbird feeders inside overnight.  As soon as the feeders are hung outside in the morning two hummingbirds appear to feed.  They seem to appreciate not having their tongues stuck to frozen food.  The snow's behind us now and it's time to get back to normal Willamette Valley weather.

A few shots of vodka will keep that from freezing. I wonder what a drunk humming bird would be like? Hmmmm... On second thought, maybe that isn't such a great idea!

Hi Todd, That was pretty cool ( cold) . Certainly something I hadn't thought of. Do these birds migrate, it is not that cold here ( 50's) so I hope they do. Been wanting a few photos.

I don't think they like slushys either.  Might bend their pointy little beak.

I've heard that hummingbirds also appreciate tiny little blankets to stay warm at night.

Ken, we did the same thing and have been watching it to make sure it didn't refreeze. John, I left the Barbie blankets out and not one was used. (LOL)

Barbie blankets?  LMAO!!!!  My feeder is placed in a spot that gets the first sun of the morning - not that we get many freezing nights in Scottsdale.
