Hummingbird nectar recipe


An easy recipe and hummers always come back for more!

Want to feed hummingbirds? Mix 1 part white cane sugar to 4 parts water. Leave it clear, don’t use food coloring. The water doesn’t have to be boiled, although that apparently kills off any bacteria in the water. Store leftover solution in the refrigerator. Replace mixture in the feeder every few days to prevent mold and bacteria growth. If it gets cloudy, you’ve waited too long.
