Don't forget the hummingbirds


I finally remembered to put my hummingbird feeder out last week. My little bird came to visit the same day I put it out. It's easy to make your own hummingbird nectar . Boil two cups of water and add one half cup sugar... make sure sugar dissolves. Red food color is optional, but I do color my nectar red. Let it cool and that's all there is to it! (you may have to make more or less, depending on the size of your feeder. Just remember: 1/4 cup sugar to 1 cup water)

Do you remember thinking the nectar in my refrigerator was cool aid?

I want to get a feeder, too.

I plan on putting mine out tomorrow. I love to watch these tiny little birds fly back and forth feeding. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,

Thank you for the recipe! I have only seen a couple of hummingbirds in our yard, but I know they are more out there!
