Turn Your Yard Into A Hummingbird Spectacular! Among the most delightful visitors to the backyard garden are the hummingbirds. With their miniature size and unique ability to hover in mid-air, hummingbirds are fascinating to watch.
Hummingbirds generally weigh from two to 20 grams. Their feet are designed for perching instead of walking. Because of their unique way of flying, they require enormous amounts of food each day for energy. Flower nectar and the sugar-water solution that fills backyard feeders supply that energy.
Many people hang feeders to attract and watch the tiny birds. While hummingbirds usually find backyard feeders without any trouble, some places in your yard are better to hang them than others. A common mistake of those new to feeding hummingbirds is purchasing a single, large feeder with multiple feeding ports. Instead, place several smaller feeders in different locations in the yard. Doing so attracts and keeps more hummingbirds coming back to the area. And since hummingbirds are territorial, it deters a single bird from dominating one feeder and chasing other birds away.
Choose feeders that are sturdy and easy to hang. Because the feeders need to be cleaned regularly, they should be placed in spots that are convenient for you to take them down and put them back up several times a week.
In this category you will find a large selection and wide range of hummingbird feeder styles including glass bottle, saucer, tubular, window, handheld and more. In addition, we offer quality hummingbird nectar and all of the hummingbird accessories essential to maintaining your feeders and successfully attracting hummers to your yard.
