Top 10 Tips for Attracting Hummingbirds and Orioles

24 oz Glass Hummingbird Feeder

Clean, fill, and hang feeders two weeks before anticipated arrival: March or earlier in southern and coastal areas and in mid-April to mid-May in the northern U.S.

Change nectar every three days in warm weather. Clean your feeder with vinegar water and rinse well with each nectar change. Use brushes on hard-to-reach areas.

Hang several feeders in your yard to prevent an aggressive bird from monopolizing a single feeder.

Hang red or orange ribbons on the feeder. Hummingbirds and orioles can see these colors and will find feeders more easily.

Use a feeder with bee-resistant ports like the HummZinger.

Use pest control, such as an ant moat to deter ants.

Use the large-capacity 24 oz Glass Hummingbird Feeder for adequate supply when multiple birds visit.

Orioles love fresh fruit or jam; serve it in Metal House Oriole Feeder.

Plant nectar-producing flowering plants, shrubs, and trees in your yard. Try honeysuckle, bleeding heart, petunia, trumpet vine, and more.

Keep feeders up for two weeks after you see your last visitors. This allows migrating stragglers to stop over at your feeders.
