5. You might need an extra feeder

Depending on where you live you may have very territorial hummingbirds. Ruby-throated hummingbirds, which are common on the East Coast, are known to fight over flowers and feeders. Setting up a few in one spot will guarantee you get some nice sightings with more than 1 bird.

6. Timing is everything

Hummingbirds are creatures of habit: if they find a place they can get good food they'll visit everyday. To attract hummingbirds before they pick another yard, set up your feeder about 5 days before the season starts (just as the weather is warming up).

Despite what you've been told, hummingbirds are smart enough to migrate when it's time to fly, so there's no harm in leaving your feeder up until the very end of the season.

7. Use hummingbird-friendly design

You know that hummingbirds are attracted to flowers and the color red, but that's not all they're interested in. Flower beds and planters with round curves are their favorite kind, so use those for nectar-filled plants.

Unlike most birds, hummingbirds don't bathe. They might enjoy a tall and shallow bird bath, but if you can leave your sprinkler or mister on when they're in the yard they will prefer that.
