This habitat’s goal is to attract native hummingbirds and give them nutritious nectar from native plants, allow them to forage on a diverse array of brightly colored flowers and a resting area. If you like to watch the “hummers” zoom around your yard, this is the perfect habitat to incorporate into your backyard landscape.
Notes for hummingbird enthusiasts:
- NEVER use dyed nectar. If it is red, it is dyed. This type of nectar is harmful to hummingbird kidneys and can be fatal. Instead, make your own! It’s simple!
1 part sugar to 4 parts water. Shake well and keep refrigerated for future use.
- Clean your feeders out at least 1 time a week, preferably every 4 days. This will help prevent fungal growth inside the feeder. This fungus is often fatal to hummingbirds.
