birdwatching

LSU AgCenter

Few sights are more thrilling in the garden than to see rapidly moving hummingbirds darting among the flowers.

So favored are the jewel-colored birds, feeders are put up to entice them into the landscape. Even better are gardens full of plants to provide the birds gardens full of nectar that they crave.

Creating a garden with plants specifically chosen to attract and feed these birds isn't difficult at all.
