Pat loves hummingbirds. He has even set up some feeders around his house to help them out. In February of 2011, Sedona, Arizona had an extremely rough winter. Hummingbirds often rely on feeders left out by humans to feed in the winter months because there are few plants they can feed off of in winter. So when the feeders froze, the hummingbirds could have been in trouble.
When the weather was freezing, Pat thought of a brilliant plan to help keep the birds warm. He didn’t want the hummingbirds to go away, much less be hungry. It was so cold that the sugar water in the feeders would freeze. So one day, he decided to put a feeder on a heating pad.
When he looked out the window, he found two hummingbirds, who he named Rocky and Adrian, sitting on the heating pad to warm up while they ate. Pat says when he saw this scene, his heart sang. He was thrilled to see that not only could they eat, they could get warm as well.
One time he used a hair dryer on a feeder to speed up the defrosting process. Rocky even came right up to drink from the feeder while Pat was warming it up! I thought he would be put off by the noise, but according to Pat, he wasn’t deterred at all. Snacktime waits for no one, especially these hungry hummingbirds.
