For this post, I have put together a collection of the best hummingbird feeders currently available.
Hummingbirds are among the worlds smallest and most beautiful birds. An easy way to view these little flying wonders is to use a feeder. Not only does this give you a front row to check them out but also it gives them a food source, particularly if there are fewer flowers in the area (nectar is one of their primary natural foods).
Avoid using honey as it can go bad when diluted in water. Simply use white granulated sugar mixed in a ratio of one part sugar to four parts water as an effective hummingbird feeder solution. Feeders can be hung from a tree, post or roof eave.
The following feeders should help make your home a regular hummingbird destination.
