I wonder if they ever get their tongues stuck to the feeder.

You should try a stronger mix of sugar in winter. Instead of 4 to 1, use 3 to 1. They get more energy from it and it won't freeze. I've had feeders out into the single digits and they didn't freeze. Also, Hummers are able to go into a Torpor when it get's cold at night, then come out of it when it warms up the next day. It's a form of hibernation. I saw it on a program about hummers in the Andes, but just found out that all hummers can do it. :)
