  • I would like to know how to make hummingbird food from sugar and water!? 1 part sugar/4 parts water Boil the water first, then measure and add sugar, at the rate of 1/4 cup of sugar to 1 cup of water. Let cool and store excess in refrigerator until ready to use. Do not add food coloring!
  • What is hummingbird liquid/ food made out of?I originally thought it was made out of sugar and water. I am just wondering because it would be cheaper if I could make hummingbird food myself than spend money at the store. Oh and another question…what are some good wild bird recipes? Like those peanutbutter balls ? hummingbird food – 1/4 cup s
  • Hummer the hummingbirdI took probably 1 ½ hours of hummingbird video; sometimes only two feet away from these tiniest of birds. Words can’t describe what it’s like watching these hyper little birds. Music Courtesy of Alex Yiannaras at www.elixirion.comDuration : 0:4:0[youtube Z_VhozT3hYE]

I have 4 hummingbird feeders. I’m in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula,and our hummers come back around Mother’s Day. I make my nectar a gallon at a time. Keep it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Mix 4 parts water and 1 part sugar, bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes to kill any bacteria. Cover and cool. Use the COOLED nectar to fill your feeders. DO NOT use the red coloring, the red color on your feeders is enough to attract the birds. This nectar can be used for Orioles, too.

Hi. This is in Menifee, California. They like regular cane sugar and cold water. Just fill any hummingbird container up almost all the way, about 85%, and fill it up with water, shake, wait until it is diluted, and they go crazy for it! I used to use the red mixture I bought at the pet store, but they didn’t care for it half as much as the natural white sugar and water.
