Tips for Feeding Hummingbirds

  • Make sure that you include plants for hummingbirds in your garden. Having flowers that attract hummingbirds to your garden will help them to find your feeders... All adds up to more hours of enjoyment for you! A great way to use flowers for attracting Hummingbirds is to plant them in hanging baskets. Try red Petunias and red Fuchsias in your baskets, they grow easily and make a nice show. Place the baskets where you can easily see them. Include pots around your porch and windows to bring these little wild birds close to your windows. Also makes it easy to replant when necessary.

  • Hummingbirds (and most other garden birds) love water. Hummingbirds prefer moving water such as sprinklers, fountains and drippers. Give them a spray and watch them fly through the water to cool off. keep the water sources fresh and clean, and position the water near your hummingbird flowers to make it even more attractive to hummingbirds. I have seen these little birds swish around in the water left behind on big leaves in my garden after watering. They do seem to prefer to flutter under a shower, rather get into a pool for a proper bath.

  • Spider webs are a big favourite with hummingbirds. They will see the spiders in your garden before you do. They eat insects from the spider webs and use spider silk for building their nests. So don't use insecticide in your garden! It is bad for the hummers, bad for the soil, bad for other birds! Try other methods for controlling garden pests.
