Answers to Common Backyard Questions

Hummingbirds

Question #1

Will my hummingbirds be okay after I move? I live on the coast of California and still have quite a few birds feeding here. I’m worried they are depending on my feeder, and I’m moving at the end of October.

Answer: Wild birds have learned to take advantage of our feeder offerings, but they are still experts at finding and taking advantage of natural food sources, too. Your hummingbirds will be fine. They’ll follow their natural instincts and move on or migrate and locate adequate food sources. Birds are smart and built to survive. No need to worry!
