It is very enjoyable to have hummingbirds in your yard. These birds have such a large personality for such a cute little bird. There is nothing more entertaining then working in your garden only to find a little hummingbird waiting patiently for you to move away from their flowers so they can eat. You can make a great environment for these birds by combining feeds are strategically planting your gardens.

Putting out a few feeders is one of these easiest things you can do. There is a very wide range of feeders that you can find. There are feeders that sit in your garden on poles that look like flowers. There are also the familiar looking feeders made to hang from shepherd’s hooks or from eaves. @@AMAZONTEXT;B000F4XEIQ;Very ornate feeders@@ are also great for those who have artistic tastes. Feeding them sugar water with red food coloring isn’t quite okay for hummingbirds. Hummingbirds really should be fed @@AMAZONTEXT;B00005850M;specially made nector@@.

Having a wide variety of flowers planted is a great way to attract hummingbirds. Hummingbirds love trumpet shaped flowers. Trumpet vine, @@AMAZONTEXT;B004YRPGLI;honeysuckle@@, and cardinal flowers are very attractive food sources.

Hummingbirds love red, and flowers that color really help the hummingbirds out. Other great flowers include bee balm, columbine, foxglove, and lupine, which are both beautiful and good for the birds and bees.

Providing them hiding spots is another way to help them stick around. They like to rest and nest in shade trees, bushes, and fruit trees. I love to have these wonderful birds in my yard, they are such a pleasure. If you are lucky enough to have more then one settle in, you can see many interesting social behaviors also.
