Attract Hummingbirds for Back Yard Fun!

Attract Hummingbirds for Back Yard Fun!

August is the peak season for the ruby-throated hummingbirds on the east coast. The best way to attract hummingbirds to your yard is to plant flowers that hummingbirds like and to put up hummingbird feeders.

To make the nectar for the feeder add 4 parts water and 1 part sugar. We use ¼ c. sugar and 1 c. water. Change often during heat spells. You can obtain a feeder at most garden centers.

The best plants for hummingbirds are red cardinal flowers , bee balm, trumpet vines, impatiens, spider plants, red salvia, honeysuckle, fuscia and petunias. I have also seen hummingbirds on foxgloves, lilies, hollyhocks, azaleas and hibiscus. Their tubular bill and long tongue make these plants preferable. Hummingbirds are drawn to the color red. They also eat spiders and insects and like the mist of sprinklers.

In August they eat a lot to double their body weight for the flight down south. We usually get our first hummingbirds around April 25th in Cape May County, NJ and the last one we have seen as late as October 1st. They seem to disappear during the nesting time in June. Hummingbirds are seen more often near wooded areas than at the seashore.

Hummingbirds are fascinating and their wings rotate up to 80 times per second. The male hummingbird is green with a metallic red throat and the female is green with a white throat. They are the only bird that can hover and go in reverse.
