  • Please read about feeding hummingbirds on the internet. Once you start feeding them you will need to keep feeding them all season for they will depend on the food source you have supplied when they build their nests. My friend in Indiana goes through a liter of sugar water PER DAY and fills 4 feeders. You should see the mind boggling amounts of hummingbirds!!! You can , if you have the right sun and soil , plant shrubs and flowering plants which attract the hummers.You can look that up on google as well. My friend keeps her feeders hanging from wires off of the eaves of her house near windows...be aware that sugar water invites ants and bees as well as hummers. good luck.

  • What kind of birds are you trying to feed? All birds or just the hummingbirds? If all birds then you could either buy or build a feeder that could be attached to the fence. if just the hummers, then you could hang those about anywhere. Plant some butterfly bushes & just about any bright colored flowers around your yard. Hummers love them.

  • i have a handmade birdfeeder sitting on my fence. By plants that attract hummingbirds, or buy some hummingbird food and something to place the feed in and hang it from someplace around your home.
