If you are a hummingbird enthusiast, then you likely already know that the use of a hummingbird feeder is a great way to attract the hummingbirds that we enjoy and wish to attract. Have you ever considered that the hummingbird feeder may also help attract other types of birds as well to your yard?
I personally had never even considered that other various species of birds could possibly be visiting the hummingbird feeders found in my yard. I automatically assumed that hummingbirds were the only type of birds that would be likely to visit the feeder. I have since learned that this is not true.
It seems that there are several species of birds besides hummingbirds that may be seen visiting your feeders. These include the following: buntings, chickadees. house finches, jays, mockingbirds, orioles, woodpeckers, and wrens. The birds mentioned are not intended to indicate a complete listing of the various species that may been found visiting your hummingbird feeders, but to help you realize that you may be blessed to have many species of birds visiting your feeders.
Happy Birdwatching to all!
