Hummingbirds are the flowers of the bird world. Shimmering in iridescent colors in the sunlight they hover over garden flowers drinking nectar with their long tongues, and spreading pollen between flowers. Hummingbirds are an essential part of the natural order, like native bees and other pollinators. But due to destruction and loss of habitat they need the help of gardeners. In fact, even though hummingbirds have one of the largest families in the bird kingdom, with over 350 members, 10% of them are on the endangered list. They need your help.
Hummingbirds are one of the easiest birds to identify. Their hovering behavior, shimmering beauty, and their tiny size set them apart from all other garden visitors. Their benefit to your garden is more than just a flash of beauty though. Hummingbirds are efficient pollinators of native plants. They eat insect pests and keep the mosquito population in check. By eating aphids and other sucking insects they help your garden thrive. And they increase your enjoyment of the garden just by their presence.
But Hummingbirds are challenged by loss of habitat. You can help them by making your garden an oasis on their annual 3,000 mile migratory trek between Canada and Mexico.

Hi, Chris! I wanted to download the Hummingbird e-book, offered in the Garden Giveaway Bundle, but the only way to do so is to sign up for the newsletter. I am already receiving your newsletter, but I filled out the form anyway and confirmed the subscription. I’m assuming I never got the download link email because I am already a subscriber. Is there any way those of us that are already subscribers can download this e-book? Thanks, Mare
