Ruby-Throated Hummingbird Handouts

The Ruby-Throated hummingbird is one of the most common types of hummingbirds in the Eastern United States. Hummingbirds are pollinators like bees, which spread pollen from flower to flower in order to grow more!

To see hummingbirds in your garden, you could put out a hummingbird feeder in your garden or even create your own hummingbird garden!

To make a hummingbird garden, try planting flowers that attract the Ruby-Throated hummingbird, like cardinal flowers and trumpet honeysuckles.

Lastly, you could also make your own nectar by mixing 1/4 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water.
