Nesting season runs October through early June. The female builds the nest, sits on the eggs and cares for the chicks without assistance from the male.
A female hummingbird has four or five clutches a season. She typically lays two eggs per clutch, though not all eggs are viable and many chicks do not survive.
"A female hummer spends seven months of the year sitting on the nest and foraging for food."
Attract hummingbirds to your yard by planting native flowering plants such as salvia, honeysuckle, verbena and bottlebrush. Keep your nectar feeders up year-round.
Clean feeders and replace nectar weekly in winter. And avoid using pesticides in the garden; a hummingbird's diet includes insects as well as nectar.
