Auntie A’s Humming Bird Nectar

Hummingbirds are beautiful to watch and if you’ll keep a feeder filled and clean in a shady place you’ll see plenty of them in your yard this month! 

You’ll need:  1 cup of sugar

                     4 cups of water

                     Red food coloring

What you need to do: Boil the water and dissolve the sugar until it’s made a syrup and then add the red coloring to a desired bright color that will attract the hummers. Fill into the feeds once cooled and hang in the yard under a tree in a shady place. Keep stored in the refrigerator and add to the feeder as needed remembering to clean the feeder every two weeks and start from scratch.
