How to Create a Hummingbird Haven

  • Whenever you are using plants to help create you hummingbird habitat, be sure to place flowers of like color in large groups.  A large area of color is more likely to catch the hummingbird’s attention rather then having single plants around the yard.
  • Plant perennials because they will come back year after year and be a consistent and dependable food source for the hummingbirds that visit your yard.  
  • If you have a new garden, annuals will bloom quickly and serve as effective way to attract hummingbirds.
  • It is also useful to plant a wide variety of flowers that will boom at different times, because this will help ensure that there is a natural nectar source available during the spring and summer.
  • Add a water source, either a birdbath or mister, to your hummingbird habitat.  Hummingbirds love to take a bath daily and this will allow the birds to do so. 
  • You can even hang a few feeders in your hummingbird habitat.  This will allow the birds the choice of feeding from the natural food sources or the feeders.  Due the fact that hummingbirds are very territorial, it is better to space your feeders apart so that more birds will be able to feed at the same time.
  • Set up a place where you can enjoy viewing the hummingbirds.  The location should be in a shady area and not be too close to the hummingbirds that your presence there scares off the birds that you are trying so hard to attract,
