It's a soft, natural, environmentally friendly nesting material that hummingbirds love to use. It's fluffy and springy, like the moss, lichen, and spiderwebs that hummingbirds often use. It comes in an easy-to-get-at dispenser that lets the fluff dry out quickly after rain. The dispenser's red color will catch the hummingbirds' eye. And you can offer in it your yard — even right next to your window — where you can watch the hummingbirds come get it.
Goldfinches, titmice, and other birds also use it.
The Hummer Helper & Nest Material comes already filled with nesting material. This material has been tested over a number of years before being brought to market in 2008. It is extremely attractive to hummingbirds. People who tested it found that it resulted in hummingbirds nesting closer to their houses, because it makes it easy for the bird to obtain the material she needs for building her nest.
It can be hung from any hook, or bracket. We like to bring our hummingbirds right up close. Hummingbirds are almost fearless and will come take the material even with you standing just on the other side of the glass.
