Attracting Hummingbirds: Gardens, Feeders, and Nectar

Plant Selection: Choose a variety of nectar-rich flowers that bloom at different times throughout the year to provide a continuous food source for hummingbirds

Colorful Blooms: Hummingbirds are attracted to bright, tubular flowers in shades of red, orange, and pink, as these colors signal high nectar content. 

Provide Shelter: Plant dense shrubs and trees around your garden to offer shelter and perching spots for hummingbirds. 

Water Features: Install a shallow bird bath or fountain with dripping or running water to provide hummingbirds with a source of fresh water for drinking and bathing

Hummingbird Feeders: Hang hummingbird feeders filled with a homemade or store-bought nectar solution in your garden to supplement natural nectar sources.

Nectar Recipe: Prepare a simple nectar solution by mixing one part white granulated sugar with four parts water. 

Feeder Placement: Hang hummingbird feeders in a shaded area of your garden, away from direct sunlight, to prevent the nectar from spoiling too quickly
