Hummingbirds are amazing at surviving in cold weather. Even though many migrate there are still hummingbirds that stay in my area year round, and we get snow. The hummingbird will go into a state of hibernation and drop its temp to match its surroundings. Yes it is dangerous but it works, at least for the hummingbird.

That is great that you care so much for those tiny creatures. They are a blessing to have in our lives.

leave them alone… the nest will do just fine without your interference…. they don’t need us… as long as our yards have some good nectar flowers, we’re doing all we can….. unless you’d like to hang a hummingbird feeder…
