HANG WITH THE HUMMINGBIRDS

September 12, 2017

Want to see hummingbirds up close? These pollinators are not just beautiful and graceful to watch, but are wonderful little helpers in the garden 🌹🌿🌞

 

First, hang nectar feeders filled with sugar water to draw them to your yard for a few weeks. Make hand feeders by wrapping a red pipe cleaner (red attracts hummingbirds) around the top of a plastic floral tube ( available from a florist or floral supplier); fill with sugar water. After birds have found your traditional feeders, add tube feeders for a few days. Then, take down traditional feeders. Sit quietly and wait with your tube feeder in hand at dawn and dusk, when there is the most hummingbird traffic. Voila.
