Hummingbird Food Recipe


4 parts water
1 part sugar - use only white granulated sugar

Boil the water, then slowly add sugar. Boil the solution for several minutes, then let it cool. (This boiling and cooling process will help avert the growth of yeasts and bacteria).

Pour the solution into a clean hummingbird feeder. Refrigerate any leftover nectar.

Don't add artificial food dye because it may harm the birds.

Change the nectar in the hummingbird feeders at least every 6 or 7 days. Clean the feeders with soap and water before adding new nectar.
