Where To Hang Hummingbird Feeder

Placement: Hang the feeder in a visible and easily accessible location where you can observe hummingbirds. Choose an area with some shade to prevent the nectar from spoiling too quickly in the sun.

Height: Hang the feeder at eye level or slightly higher, making it easier for you to refill and clean. However, ensure it's also reachable for maintenance.

Distance: Hang the feeder away from windows to prevent bird collisions. If necessary, place decals or window screens to make windows more visible to birds.

Safety: Avoid placing the feeder too close to areas where predators, such as cats, can easily ambush hummingbirds. Keep it at least 10-15 feet away from potential hiding spots for predators.

Stability: Hang the feeder from a sturdy hook or pole to prevent it from swaying in the wind. Ensure the feeder is securely attached to prevent accidents or spills.

Accessibility: Hang the feeder near flowers or natural nectar sources to attract hummingbirds. However, avoid placing it too close to bird baths or other sources of water, as hummingbirds prefer to feed away from water sources.

Traffic: Hang the feeder in a quiet area away from heavy foot traffic or noisy machinery to minimize disturbances for feeding hummingbirds.
