ATTRACTING and FEEDING Hummingbirds
The recipe for hummingbird nectar is on your hand (1:4 for the thumb and fingers). Just boil 1 cup of white table sugar (sucrose) with 4 cups of water for 2 minutes, and then fill your feeder when it has cooled.
It is important to change the nectar regularly. The timing for cleaning your feeder and refreshing nectar changes depending on the time of year. Check out our Hungry Hummers Feeding Schedule Calendar for details.
