How to make Hummingbird nectar

Spring is here, and so are the birds!

We currently have a black bear in our land so to not encourage him too much to visit we don’t put bird feeders out, except for the hummingbird feeder. Nectar in the store can be a little expensive for basically just colored sugar water. The red dye in the liquid might not be so healthy for the birds either. Luckily, it’s so easy to make your own in less than 5 minutes!

What you will need is:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup sugar (regular white baking sugar)
  • Cup and spoon
  • Hummingbird feeder

Simply pour your sugar into your water (it helps if it’s room temperature or warm) and stir until all the crystals dissolve. Pour in your feeder, hang it up, and enjoy your birds! It’s that simple!

Make sure you clean it weekly as can get sticky and icky.

God bless!
