"In my garden I grow a lot of hummer-friendly plants: salvias, penstemons, nepetas, and I hang feeders as well. They attract lots of rubythroats all summer and into the fall. When the season gets late, there can be as many as a dozen hummingbirds at a time, especially at the feeders, where it can sound like a hornet’s nest with all those buzzing wings. With the territoriality of these birds, it’s a good thing they’re so darn cute or we’d be swatting them."
