ATTRACTING HUMMINGBIRDS

  • Provide a habitat that will give them shelter, shade, and food. Plant a variety of flowers.
  • Create a tiered landscape by planting herbs and perennials, vines, and flowering shrubs and trees.
  • Hummingbirds love water, especially if it is moving or misted.
  • Hummingbirds rely on bright colors to find their food, and are particularly attracted to the color red.
  • Use hummingbird feeders placed in shaded locations. Change nectar every 3-4 days and rinse your feeder with hot water each time you change the nectar.
