Categories: Hummingbird


Are you interested in learning how to attract hummingbirds to your backyard?  Do you already have a hummingbird feeder, but aren’t sure what else you can do to attract more hummingbirds?  If you answered yes to either of these questions, then this blog is for you!  Attracting hummingbirds to your backyard is not only a great way for you to enjoy bird watching, but it also is a way to provide these tiny birds with nectar, encouraging them to come back to your yard over and over again.
One of the easiest ways to begin attracting hummingbirds to your yard is by putting up a hummingbird feeder.  With the wide variety of feeders, it’s important to understand which feeder will be best for your yard.  Here is an overview of the types of feeders Perky-Pet® offers:Perky Pet Outdoor Shots 2010 050
Top Fill Hummingbird Feeders – These top fill feeders are available in a variety of sizes and styles, and allow for easy refill through a wide mouth.  A second benefit of a top fill feeder is that it is very easy to clean, allowing you to quickly clean your feeder and refill to continue attracting hummingbirds to your backyard.
Perky Pet Outdoor Shots 2010 026Bottom Fill Hummingbird Feeders –Traditionally, hummingbird feeders were filled from a small opening at the bottom of the nectar container on the feeder.  Perky-Pet® offers not only this traditional style feeder, but also funnel bottom feeders that allow for easier filling, reverse funnel feeders, and window bottom feeders, all designed to attract hummingbirds to your yard.

In addition to adding a feeder to your backyard, a second way to attract hummingbirds to your backyard is as simple as planting flowers.  Hummingbirds are attracted to flowers such as Bee Balm, Delphinium, and even Coralbells.  Finally, a third way to attract hummingbirds is by adding trees and shrubs as a place for them to nest.  These trees and shrubs will offer hummingbirds shelter that is not only safe for them, but also close to a source of nectar from your feeder!  Check out our landscaping tips page to learn more about what types of flowers humming birds are attracted to and what trees and shrubbery will be best in your yard!
