If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know I am an avid birder! I love to watch the birds, and I’ve always included my kids with that. We have a couple bird books where we date the first sightings of any birds we’ve seen.
Be sure to check out my blog on Feeding the Birds!
As the weather starts to warm up and the flowers start to bloom we are not the only ones getting excited! Another exciting part about spring is the arrival of hummingbirds is just around the corner. These tiny and colorful birds are a delight to watch as they flit around our yards, sipping nectar from flowers and feeders.
If you want to attract hummingbirds to your yard, now is the time to start preparing. Setting up a hummingbird feeder is a great way to provide a source of food for these beautiful creatures and enjoy their presence throughout the season. But when is the best time to start setting up your feeder? In today’s episode, I’ll describe the best practices for getting ready for hummingbird season & share some tips on how to attract these amazing little wonders to your yard.
So, get ready to welcome the hummingbirds and create a beautiful and vibrant habitat in your backyard.

We get them year-round here – we are investing in heated feeders so they can still feed when the temps dip.

We haven’t really ever considered setting up bird feeders in our yard. Maybe we should consider it. Thanks for the tips!

We started seeing these little guys in March here in Central Texas so I get my feeder ready early!
I love birds too! We just set out our hummingbird feeders yesterday and I’m waiting close by with my camera!
We do see hummingbirds almost through the year here.. but for some reason, not as much for the past couple of weeks (could the superbloom here be tempting them away from feeders??) .. but it is warming up so hopefully they get back soon
