Naturally Feeding Hummingbirds

Each year the arrival of hummingbirds is so awesome. Try feeding these little hummers naturally instead of buying the premixed food with coloring and additives they don't need. They will still return without their water being colored red.

The mixture is simple and can be double, tripled, etc. I make a double batch and store it in the refrigerator to keep refilling the feeders but only keep this solution for about a week to a week and a half.

Formula is 1 cup of water to 1/4 cup of sugar. Use the microwave to bring water to a boil or your stove top. Let cool and pour into feeders or store in fridge for later use. This is cheaper and better for our seasonal friends.
