There is a sense of peace and fulfillment when you have a backyard space that is visually appealing. There is an added satisfaction when your guests comment on the beautiful flowers and flawless landscape. However, nothing can give a homeowner a greater sense of satisfaction as having hand blown glass hummingbird feeders in their backyard, and providing nature with a quiet space to relax.
Although you may enjoy your backyard on a quiet summer evening, or host garden parties and barbeques, it is highly likely that your most critical backyard guests will not be people. They will be the small creatures that sit in the trees, drink and bathe in the bird bath and feed from nectar in your hand blown glass hummingbird feeders. Once you hear the buzzing of hummingbird wings in your backyard, you will want to create a tranquil and peaceful space for your feathery friends.
It takes some patience and research to attract hummingbirds to your backyard. If you live in the southern or western states, you can enjoy hummingbirds all year long. Those who live in other states can enjoy these visitors as they migrate from their breeding grounds in the Fall and Spring. When you know when they will be traveling through your region, you can prepare for their arrival by ensuring they feel invited by encouraging them to enjoy your hummingbird feeders and maybe even build a nest.
These types of feeders will provide you the opportunity to see some of nature’s most delicate creatures up close and personal. Hummingbirds have a preference for nectar that is really sweet and will pass over flowers that do not offer up sweetness that has at least 25% sugar content.
There are several types of feeders on the market with various price ranges. The most common types of feeders are the ones that consist of glass reservoirs and a plastic feeding port. Even though they can be purchased for a lower price, they lack visual appeal.
On the other hand, a hand blown glass feeder is very attractive and can add a touch of class and elegance to your backyard space. Blown glass feeders are favored because they are bright, sparkling and full of color.
Most suggest that you select a place outside of your window, right above your field of vision. Also be sure that there are at least several inches between other objects and the feeder. This will reduce impact from other objects as well as allow easy access to the feeder for you and the hummingbirds.
If you prefer to enjoy watching the birds feed while you are relaxing in your backyard, you can set the feeders up in various areas around your yard.
Hand blown glass hummingbird feeders can safely hang from a hook. Be sure to keep the feeders clean and keep fresh nectar in the feeders to prevent mold and mildew growth.
