Hummingbird Nectar

Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Time to Make the Nectar…

Hummingbirds like their nectar fresh!
  1. Combine one part white table sugar and four parts water.
  2. Slowly heat the solution for 2 - 3 minutes to help the sugar dissolve and slow down fermentation.
  3. Allow the solution to cool completely before filling feeders.
  4. Change the nectar in the feeders every two or three days.
