How to Make Hummingbird Nectar:
Combine sugar and water in a pot over medium heat on the stove.
Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Allow the hummingbird nectar to cool to room temperature.
Using the funnel, fill your feeders halfway full then hang outside for your flittering babies to enjoy!
Store extra hummingbird nectar in a glass jar, or another air tight container, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
*The standard ratio is 4:1, but 3:1 works great although it may spoil a little quicker. On hot summer days, you can even try a 5:1 or 6:1 ratio. Play around and see what works best for your babies!
