Hummingbird Nectar Recipe

Hummingbird Nectar Recipe

The best things in life are often the simple things.
We love our hummingbird visitors so much.
They bring JOY to our lives :)
Every day a few come by and take a drink of the nectar we provide.

It is easy to make:

  • Boil 4 cups of water.

  • Add 1 cup of organic sugar to the 4 cups of boiled water.

  • Stir until dissolved and once cooled add the nectar to your clean feeder and then wait for visitors!

 

The number of times a hummingbird's wings beat is different from one species to another, and ranges from 720 to 5400 times per minute when hovering.

Hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards.

Please note: in warmer temperatures, the sugar water will need to be replaced more frequently. In hot weather, the feeder should be emptied and cleaned twice per week. In cooler weather, once per week is enough. If your hummingbirds empty the feeder with greater frequency, clean it every time it’s empty. Cleaning with hot tap water works fine, or use a weak vinegar solution. Avoid using dish soaps, as this can leave harmful residue in the feeder.

We really enjoy these wonderful birds and highly recommend this delightful movie and book. http://hummingbirdstory.com/

Enjoy!
