[midvalleybirds] Maintaining hummingbird feeders during winter

My wife and I usually maintain hummingbird feeders thru the winter for Anna's. This winter we might be away for 4-6 week stretches.

Is it bad to put out feeders if they cannot be adequately maintained (kept full and viable) thru the winter? If we get our usual 3-5 Anna's for the winter and the feeders suddenly go dry, will the consequence likely be bad?

Thanks,
