Hummingbirds are attracted to sugar, which is a major part of
their diet. They get it from nectar and tree sap. Hummingbirds
also need protein in order to build muscles. They eat insects
and pollen as a source of protein.
Hummingbird Feeder Benefits
Hummingbird feeders are beneficial to hummingbirds because they
can feed on the nectar that is placed in the feeder.
Hummingbirds have good memories. This fact will keep them coming
back to your hummingbird feeder all season.
Hummingbird feeders are colorful, with intricate designs that
will brighten your garden. They may also attract butterflies
because of the bright colors. It is best to keep your feeder in
a shaded area so the birds can keep cool while feeding.
Feeding hummingbirds with feeders has grown more popular in
recent years. Perhaps it was the butterfly feeder that inspired
hummingbird enthusiasts to start this trend. They are still a
one-of-a-kind ornament for anyone's garden.
