I sat in my home office on Saturday watching out my window as hummingbirds kept trying to land on the feeder on our deck as the winds up to 45 mph whipped the feeder about. We live in Edmonds just above the marina and park. Every once in a while a hummingbird was able to hang on....for a little while anyway. It was very entertaining. Btw, the hummingbirds were able to find a second feeder we have placed out of the wind so they didn't starve.
