Help The Hummingbirds

If you enjoy hummingbirds as much as I do, help them out by putting a feeder or two in your yard.

I have a shrub planted for hummingbirds: hummingbird bush (Hamelia patens). I usually have other flowering plants that hummingbirds love, but due to the drought, most of them have either died or not doing too well.

I've got four feeders and they require refilling at least twice daily. This far north, I still have several stragglers around but the bulk have already begun their migration. In the next week or so, the feeders will be all quiet until next summer. I don't care much for feeding birds but I sure do enjoy Hummingbirds.

I feed wild birds and grow flowers and shrubs that the hummingbirds love. Sometimes, I get very interesting wild birds passing though, like the green parrots.

I haven't had any green parrots. Mostly bluejays, cardinals and woodpeckers.

Steve, I get wild green parrots for a few days each year. Bluejays, cardinals, small brownish birds (don't know their names), red-winged blackbirds, and a few others. Doves and pigeons feed on the food that the others spill onto the ground. Haven't seen a woodpecker around here in a very long time. I have have mockingbirds, but they like to eat cat food!
