There are many generic bird feeders, but if you want to feed hummingbirds, get one designed for them. Here are some points to help you choose the best hummingbird feeder for your space.
A: A hummingbird feeder is aesthetically pleasing, even more so when surrounded by many feeding hummers. But for it to succeed, place it where the hummingbirds are comfortable using it and not just where you think it looks nice. Place your feeder near attractive hanging flowers to catch their attention. Red accents nearby may further draw hummingbirds as they seem to favour this colour. Ensure the area is safe from predators like household pets, vermin or birds of prey; do this by putting the feeder out of pets’ range and in a location that offers some coverage for quick escapes. Hummers also need protein, which they get from little bugs, so don’t use pesticides, weedicides or harsh chemicals nearby.
A: The traditional recipe for hummingbird nectar calls for one part sugar to four parts water. While it is ok to make slight variations, you should not deviate too far from this standard. Watery nectar may not attract hummingbirds, and nectar that is too sugary can ferment quickly and clog up feeders. Do not use red dye or colourings, artificial sweetener, honey, or chilli powder in your nectar mixture. Keep your feeder clean. Wash it once a week, and empty any leftover feed before refilling, especially in warmer, drier weather. Also, avoid giving your hummingbirds freezing nectar as it may cold-stun them.
