Hummingbird Nectar

We love to watch the hummingbirds flutter around our home.  We have one on the side porch window that the hummingbirds actually fight over!  My homemade hummingbird nectar must be delicious!  It's super easy!

Hummingbird Nectar

Stir together 2 cups boiling hot water and 1 cup sugar until the sugar is dissolved.  Stir in 2 cups cold water and fill your feeders.  If you have any left over just store it in the fridge until needed.  Don't worry, it won't be in the refrigerator too long. Word will get around that there's a nectar party at your house! (Oh, and there's no need for red food coloring. They could care less about it!)

I like to make a humming bird feeder from baby food jars w/ the kids I baby sit every year. Using a nail, we hammer 3-4 holes close together at an edge on the top of the lid. We decorate with foam flower stickers. Tie a string around the neck of the jar. Fill with nectar and hang so holes are tipped at the bottom.
