Feeding hummingbirds is popular, and a range of feeders can be found in most feed stores, grocery stores, and garden centers.

Use this recipe from www.worldofhummingbirds.com to attract and feed these amazing creatures.

You’ll need:

•1 cup pure cane white granulated sugar

•4 cups boiling water

Boil more than 4 cups of water on the stove (not in the microwave). Carefully measure out 4 cups of boiling water into a large bowl. Add 1 cup of pure cane white granulated sugar (not brown sugar or powdered sugar). Mix the sugar and water together until all the sugar is dissolved. Carefully place the mixture into the refrigerator to cool, usually overnight. When mixture is cold, add it to your hummingbird feeder.

Note: This site recommends not adding any red food coloring or dye to the mixture. If the nectar in the feeder appears cloudy or you see floating strands in it, empty the feeder and clean it thoroughly before refilling.
