Hummingbirds see colors the same as we do, but they have no sense of smell. They’re drawn to bright colors like red, hot pink, fire orange, and gold, but they explore other colors of flowers, too. Hummingbirds visit both large and small flowers; wherever there’s nectar.

|Crocosmia 'Lucifer' (Crocosmia cvs.)|
|Cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis)|
You can always make your own hummingbird nectar; find a recipe here.
