What does a Hummingbird house look like, and how do I build one? Where do they live and nest? What do they eat? I would like to draw more of them around my garden.

Hummingbirds won't nest in a house. They build their nests high up in trees where they are protected from people and animals. You can encourage them to visit your garden if you plant trumpet shaped flowering plants and if you have lots of bright red in your garden. You can also hang hummingbird feeders in your landscape. Enjoy watching them!
