We never had a birdfeeder in our yard but we do have friends and family that do have hummingbird feeders and they do attract just that. That is of course on of the many reasons to own a bird feeder. During the wonderful seasons, having a feeder helps the birds out believe it or not, not just a place to eat seeds or nectar in our case, humming birds love nectar and its best to have the feeder near flowers that they like, maybe something red also, they love red, and so many other reasons. And having a feeder can attract so many different kinds of birds that may or may not be in your region, that is the best part. We really want a humming bird feeder and I did not know that there were just so many options in choosing one, here is a site that has a wide variety and all of them are so affordable its just awesome. And a humming bird would be so wonderful to have right in your won backyard and with the feeder, they will be around all season long! Can you tell we have been researching this whole hummingbird thing? Yeah we can not wait.
