7 Reasons Why Hummingbirds Are Avoiding Your Yard

Your feeders are obstructed. Check for obstructions that might be preventing hummingbirds from getting to the feeders that you have placed out in your yard

Lack of feeder flowers. While hummingbirds love hummingbird nectar/food, they also like to find nectar that natural occurs in plants

Lack of water. Hummingbirds love running water! We’ve noticed that we get more visits when our sprinkler is on.

There is too much noise. Hummingbirds are little creatures, so they are wary of any loud noises. Loud music, children, or barking dogs can all scare them away.

There is nowhere to nest build. Hummingbirds prefer small shrubs and mini trees to build nests in. If you don’t have anywhere for them to create a home, they may not come visit.

Your hummingbird food isn’t tasty. Be sure you are following package directions when preparing Hummingbird food. You don’t want it to be too watery and you don’t want it too sweet

There isn’t enough color to attract them in. Hummingbirds are attracted to bright colors such as red and orange. Be sure you have these colors boldly displayed in your yard.
