Backyard Birds

Here Come the Hummers



For some wildlife and nature enthusiasts, the most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us . . . hummingbirds will be back soon! In this installment of the Backyard Naturalists podcast, Debbie and Laurie spend a few minutes sharing interesting facts and figures about hummingbirds, courtesy of Cornell’s, Birds of North America Online. They also share with you a list of native plants you can incorporate into your natural wildlife habitat to attract hummingbirds.

In the second half of this week’s episode, The Backyard Naturalists have a conversation of feeders and food for hummingbirds, including a few do-it-yourself recipes.
