How to Attract Hummingbirds to Your Backyard

Attracting hummingbirds

Among the many popular backyard birds, none attract quite as much attention or adoration as the colorful hummingbird.

Adding plants and hummingbird feeders are two easy ways to attract more of these birds to your yard, regardless of where you live in the country. However, since most species migrate, there is a specific seasonal window for your area.
