Hummingbird Nectar Recipe

How many of you love hummingbirds as much as I?

I like to watch them buzzing around my front porch.

Feeding from my feeders.

And buzzing around again to let me know the feeder is empty.

For those of you who don’t know the recipe for hummingbird nectar, I have posted it here for you.

 Hummingbird Nectar

1 cup boiling water

1/4 cup sugar

Completely dissolve sugar in boiling water. Let cool.

Do not use food coloring in nectar. They say it’s bad for the hummers.

Store unused portions in refrigerator.
