This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Animal Care.

In this Badge Bit you will plant at least 200 seeds of 12 different species for hummingbirds.

Here are some articles on it:
 - Attracting Hummingbirds
 - Creating a Hummingbird Friendly Yard
 - 18 Plant Families for Hummingbirds
 - 37 Flowers to Attract Hummingbirds







To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - you must plant at least 12 species of plants for hummingbirds
 - you must plant at least 200 seeds

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - post a list of the 12 species of plants you are planting for hummingbirds and mention when they bloom
 - post a picture that obviously has 200 or more seeds
 - post a short video (less that two minutes - sped up) showing these 200 seeds being planted
 
Your buns are mine! But you can have this tiny ad:
