Let Them See Red
Hummingbirds are attracted to the bright red coloring on nectar feeders. If your feeder has no red coloring, simply tie red ribbons to the hanging wire. They’ll find it.
Dish style feeders often have perches so you can get a rare, motionless view of hummingbirds feeding. Gravity-fed feeders are generally known for their ease of filling and cleaning. Some feeders have a straw-like feeding tube, which does not offer pests, like wasps and bees, a place to land.
Do not use red food coloring.
