    The first thing to know and remember is this: Don’t try to capture or even touch a hummingbird. They are small delicate creatures and can easily be injured if handled. Just look the tiny birds dancing in the air is simply wonderful to watch.

     But there are still things you can do to make your yard a special hummingbird spot:

    Plant a variety of flowers

    It’s the bright colors that count because hummingbirds are attracted to vivid hues, they feed on the nectar contained in the flower center. Plant flowers with wide petals like flags waving to hummingbirds that say – “eat here”! Once hummingbirds find your tasty flowers they will come back often, they have good memories of where they have eaten before.
