WHICH HUMMINGBIRD FOOD SHOULD I USE?

Which hummingbird food you use is a matter of choice. Some prefer to purchase commercially prepared food; others like to make their own. Some swear by red-colored nectar while some say that clear nectar is the best.  The hummingbirds don’t seem to prefer one type of nectar over the other.

If you prepare your own hummingbird food, mix four parts of water to one part sugar. Boil the mixture for at least two to three minutes.  Let the liquid cool to room temperature before pouring it into a feeder. Store the surplus in the refrigerator.

  1. Thank you for this informative blog! I plan to visit frequently so I can be a better host for the creatures that bless me with their presence in my backyard.
