As I mentioned in my last post, the lady that used to live in our house was very protective of the humming birds and left me detailed instructions on taking care them. In this post I'll share her recipe and a few tips I've figured out on my own.
Quick and easy humming bird nectar
1. Heat up 4 cups (1 Liter) of water to boiling. I do this in a large glass measuring cup in my microwave.
2. Add 1 cup sugar. Stir until dissolved.
3. Let cool. I cover and leave the nectar on the counter for a while, then transfer to the refrigerator.
Note: If you are making extra nectar ahead, keep it in the refrigerator. It will mold if left out too long.
So when should you put out feeders? I was told March 20th, although last year I didn't see any visitors until April. Well, the bar is open here when they are ready to drink up!
