Some hummingbird feeders are designed to attach directly to your window. Hummingbirds are very aggressive and have no fear of visiting a window feeder. To draw their attention, try putting a flower box under the window (even taping a length of red gift ribbon to the window pane will help!).

You also may want to put your feeder near flowers in your yard. Several types of “shepherd’s hooks” are available, perfect for hanging hummingbird feeder(s) in full view.

How to keep ants from feeders:
Little cups are available that are designed to go between your hanger and feeder. When you fill the cup with water, it acts like moat - ants can’t cross it. If you add a drop of vegetable oil to the water, it will evaporate more slowly.
