Hummingbirds are the smallest of all birds and have iridescent feathers. They can fly in all directions – forward, backward, up and down – and their wings move so fast that they look like a blur. In the garden they flit from flower to flower seeming to change direction on a dime…all of which makes them really fun to watch. And probably explains why so many us want to know how to attract them to feed in our gardens.
In most locations in North America, hummingbirds are migratory so you will only see them during the warm weather seasons. But they do like to return to the same food sources every year, so if you can get them to start feeding in your garden, you can be pretty sure that they will be back again next year!
