How to Attract Hummingbirds!

Hummingbirds are pretty, they pollinate flowers, and they can move their
wings faster than any other bird.

If this doesn’t convince you to encourage hummingbirds in your yard, then just do it because they are a beautiful species, and will bring light to your life. Below are some tips to help.

  • A birding field guide or a local Audubon Society chapter can help you determine if hummingbirds are normally found in your area and, if so, when.
  • Ask your local nursery for advice about local plants that attract hummingbirds. (Columbine, impatiens, flowering eucalyptus, bottlebrush, tree tobacco, sage, honeysuckle, fuchsia, larkspur, trumpet vine, and silk tree are among plants that attract hummingbirds).
  • Plant nectar-bearing plants or trees with flowers attractive to hummingbirds.
  • Hang hummingbird feeders filled with one part sugar and four parts water around your property. Make sure not to use commercially available hummingbird mixes that are red, since almost all of them are made with synthetic dyes which won’t be good for the birds. Add red to the bird feeder instead (hummingbirds are attracted to red.)
  • Clean feeders often. Some experts recommend cleaning your feeders every four days! The reason for cleaning the feeders this often is that fermenting sugar mixtures can make hummingbirds sick.
