I was so excited to see my first hummingbird. I could not boil this up fast enough. There is no need to buy expensive hummingbird food. It is so easy to make and the birds love it!
Remember if you are already getting temps above 90 degrees you will need to change the food often ~ it ferments and can make the birds sick. I change it if it starts to look cloudy.
Hummingbird Food Recipe~
2 cups sugar
6 cups water
Bring sugar and water to a boil. Boil for 6 minutes. Watch and stir often so the syrup does not boil over. Remove from stove and let cool to room temperature.
Fill the feeder and watch them come flocking to your yard.
