Ruby throated hummingbirds are the only hummingbirds that frequent our area. Here is a good website at the USDA Forest Service that describes the bird, its habit and plants that sustain it.

Thanks for that site. I'm a Colorado Master Gardener Extension Volunteer, so of course did the research I could first. I was hoping more specific info from the extension indicating Delaware-specific native plants that would attract these birds vs. the USDA's info. If you get similar requests for this info in the future, this is a potentially better resource

Thank you for the recommendation. It is greatly appreciated.
