hummingbird food

What you need:Hummingbird Feeder
• 4 cups filtered water
• 1 cup regular white sugar

What you do:
• Bring the water to a boil.
• Take the water off the heat and add the sugar.
• Stir to dissolve completely.
• Let the nectar cool.
• Place in a clean hummingbird feeder and hang outside for the birds.

Note: Change the food at least every three to five days with a new batch to keep it fresh. Remember don’t use food coloring. Check the bird feeder regularly and every time you change the food to see if any gray mold has formed inside the feeder base, or, any ants have crawled inside to get at the sugar water. If you see any take the feeder down and throw the bird food away. Clean the hummingbird feeder by rinsing with warm water. Then, put a few drops of bleach into the water inside the feeder and clean with a bottle brush. Once clean, rinse thoroughly with fresh water and let dry. Fill up with new food and place outside.
