Hummingbird Trees - Nature and Wildlife 34

Fig 01- A humming bird is sipping nectar from buckeye flowers.

We mentioned a little bit about one of favorite flowers for hummingbirds:

- Health and Dynamic Life: The Attractive Flower to Butterflies, hummingbirds and Bees – Pet and Hobby 18 .

My neighbor told me that hummingbirds ignored her 6 bird feeders of sugary liquid recently.

Instead, they choose nectar from flowers of tree called as buckeye tree. The tree about 12 feet (3.6 meter) height.

The buckeye tree produces red flowers which blooming in the spring and dropping in the autumn.

In addition to flowers, the trees have nuts (seed) that ripe in the autumn. The nuts are small with color of dark brown.

Unfortunately, the nuts contain poison, namely aesculin. The toxic is in the right side of nuts.

Squirrel is the only animal consume buckeye’s nuts, but only a half of nuts. It could be that they know what part of nut is safe.

Moreover, there are many trees could invite hummingbirs, several of them are (please read: Vanessa Richins Myers, published by the Spruce in March 13, 2021):

- Northern Catalpa (Catalpa speciosa)

- Silk tree (Albizia julibrissin)

- Strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo)

- Tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera)

- Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum)

- English hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata)

- Crabapples (Malus spp)

- Eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis)
