Our yard was always full of multiple hummingbird feeders. Mom wanted the hummingbirds to have plenty of opportunities to feed and she believed that having the multiple feeders in the yard would attract more of the hummingbirds that we so enjoyed watching. The are indeed advantages to having multiple hummingbird feeders throughout your yard and and this post will discuss them.
My mom seemed to know that the best way to prevent a single hummingbird from monopolizing her feeders was to have multiple feeders and place them out of view of each other around our yard. She would also group a bunch of feeders together so that no single hummingbird can possibly defend each hummingbird feeder.
There are advantages to placing multiple feeders around your yard. This is something my mom seemed to fully understand and I truly believe it to have been one of the many reasons that our yard was a hummingbird haven. If you are interested in attracting lots of hummingbirds to your yard, why not try placing multiple feeders around your yard? You and the hummingbirds will be glad that you did so.
