9 Reasons Hummingbirds Are Steering Clear Of Your Yard 

Lack of flowers for nectar: Without nectar-producing flowers, hummingbirds lack a vital food source essential for their survival and are less likely to visit your yard. 

Lack of shelter/nesting sites: Hummingbirds seek shelter and suitable nesting sites. Insufficient cover or nesting materials may deter them from frequenting your yard. 

Limited variety of flowers: Hummingbirds are attracted to a diverse array of flower colors, shapes, and sizes. A lack of variety may reduce their interest in your yard. 

Absence of native plants: Native plants often provide ideal nectar sources and have co-evolved with hummingbirds. Without them, your yard may not meet their preferences. 

Unsuitable feeder placement: Proper feeder placement is crucial. If feeders are not visible or are in direct sunlight, hummingbirds may overlook them or find the conditions unfavorable. 

Lack of water sources: Hummingbirds need water for drinking and bathing. Without accessible water sources like birdbaths, they may seek hydration elsewhere. 

Presence of predators: Hummingbirds are cautious and avoid areas with perceived threats from predators like cats or birds of prey, impacting their visitation.
