Attracting hummingbirds to your property
If you want to attract ruby-throated hummingbirds to your property, it helps to understand their biology and behavior, and to implement habitat management practices, such as providing native plants and supplemental food sources. They are attracted to plants and flowers that provide nectar, as well as artificial feeders that do the same. By landscaping with recommended plants and providing supplemental food sources, hummingbird enthusiasts and birdwatchers can attract and feed hummingbirds on their property.
