At my house it was 46 degrees at 6:00 this morning. Our hummingbird feeders 
were loaded, but it was a different story for wild nectar sources out in the 
forest, where I came across an outraged Sapsucker, vigorously defending his 
wells against a trespassing hummer. He couldn’t match the hummer’s speed, but 
he expended a lot of energy to prevent any leisurely freeloading, and after 5 
minutes the hummer left.
