Backyard Birding Tips: Maintaining your Hummingbird Feeders

At the Center, we get a lot of questions about our super active hummingbirds! This hummingbird solution gives our hummers the boost they need to get through the day! Shout out to our volunteer Marshall who keeps our feeders clean and full for our hummers

Debunking some common hummingbird feeder myths:

  • Hummingbird solution doesn't need to be red to attract your hummers. The red color of the feeders should be enough to bring the hummers to your yard
  • Hummingbird feeders are NOT the only source of food for your hummers. Hummingbirds draw from feeders for a quick boost. Their main food sources are flowers and small insects! 
  • Sugar water is a safe and natural energy boost for your backyard hummingbirds.

Happy birding!
