Q. Does a hummingbird feeder have to be red to attract them?

Definitely not. While red is the classic color for attracting them, I have seen hummers feeding on practically every color there is. In early spring, they love buckeyes, which are yellow. I recently planted some May Night Salvia (purple) and had a male feeding on them within 10 minutes of getting them in the ground. All color hummingbird feeders are great.
