Unlike most backyard birds that can be attracted using birdseed in a traditional feeder like the one shared earlier on, hummingbirds prefer to feed on nectar so they require a dedicated feeder like the one shown here. It’s easy to make homemade nectar using a simple recipe like this one here. It can then be poured into the jar of the feeder and hummingbirds can feed on it via the five feeding perches around the base.

The 100% cotton cushion cover features an artistic design of a hummer hovering over a flower showing off its elegant patterns. This is just 1 of 7 different hummingbird designs you can choose from. Keep in mind that this gift is the cover only, you’ll also need to source an 18″x18″ cushion insert to complete the gift.

If you’re going to give this as a gift, make sure you’re prepared to hear lots of bird-related facts because these need to be shared.
Dabbing Parrot T-Shirt
If your recipient loves to wear funny t-shirts, this dabbing parrot will be right up their street. The fun cartoon design sits on a background color of your choice, although we think this black background works best. The t-shirt can be ordered in several different fits that are great for both men and women.
Porch Swing Bird Feeder
We’ve included several bird feeders by this point, however, we could resist throwing in this fun porch swing-style bird feeder as our final gift idea for bird lovers. The feeder is made from Louisiana Cypress Wood and can easily be hung from any tree in the backyard with the included chains. Now your recipient can hang out on their porch swing and watch the birds as they gather on theirs.
