Hummingbirds of Texas

We love watching hummingbirds, and East Texas is a great place for that pastime!

Hummingbird at rest, near Tyler Texas

The hummingbird population at the end of  the Texas migration in September of 2016 was awesome, as the hummers made their southbound migration towards South Texas.

We often have over 40 Ruby Throat hummingbirds on our feeders at one time. At times we are also blessed with several brightly colored Baltimore Orioles on our feeders.

We grow lots of hummingbird and butterfly-friendly plants, annuals and perennials such as Butterfly Bush, Marigolds, Zinnias, Goldflame Honeysuckle, Passion Vine, Cross Vine, Weigla, Mexican Firebush, Batface Cuphea, Lipstick Salvia, Hot Lips, and more.

Some of our feeders we put at eye-level, nestled in the flowers. If you don't have pets, or a problem with racoons, this can enhance your hummingbird viewing, and it puts the feeder more in a natural environment for the birds.

We also have an abundance of trees nearby which provide shelter and protection for the hummingbirds.
