Welcome Hummingbirds To Your Garden

Written by digthis on December 17th, 2011. Posted in The Stores

A well-placed feeder will encourage these feisty little birds to hang out in your garden where they’ll give you hours of entertainment for the price of a few cups of nectar.

Here onVancouver Island, we have lots of opportunity to watch hummingbirds. The resident Anna’s hummingbird lives onVancouver Islandyear round, while the migratory Rufus hummingbird visits from April to October each year.

Naturally, blooming flowers are the best way to attract hummers.  They love long, tubular blossoms that are red, orange, yellow or blue, especially blue Salvia.  Aquilegia, Fuchsia, Lobelia, Monarda and Penstemons are other good choices.  But a feeder will ensure you get to see them up close.

Hummingbird feeders go from utilitarian plastic to almost-as-gorgeous-as-the-birds-themselves hand blown glass.  The birds don’t care much, as long as the nectar is fresh.

Clean feeders every 4 days or so and refill with fresh nectar.  Dissolve 1 cup of sugar in 4 cups of very hot water.  Don’t use other types of sweetener or red food colouring.

Hang your feeder in the shade at least 4 feet above the ground.  Then sit back and watch the aerodynamic show!
