Is there such a thing as having too good a hummingbird habitat? Believe it or not, this is quite possible. Let me explain what I mean by this.
If there are too many plants, flowers, or shrubs in your area which attract hummingbirds, then the birds may have no need to visit the feeders in the area. Simply put, the natural food supply is available with such abundance that alternet food sources aren’t necessary. After all, why shouldn’t the birds prefer the natural food sources available over the artificial nectar solution that we provide in hummingbird feeders?
