There are several reasons to attract hummingbirds to your yard. Hummingbirds are super pollinators in the garden, and they’re efficient at ridding a garden of unwanted insects. Plus, they’re fascinating to watch when they feed on nectar from a flower or a feeder while hovering in mid-air.
As the first wildlife advocacy organization to join, Audubon brings unique perspective to the table.
On tiny whirring wings, hummingbirds may fly thousands of miles north to nest, crossing open waters or high mountains. Right now, you can make a difference for our smallest birds facing big troubles before they need emergency room measures to save them.
