I have more than just a homemade hummingbird nectar recipe, check out more recipes at the end of the page.

Making nectar is simple and so rewarding. I love watching them, as most people do. Help them out by making your own homemade hummingbird food (no preservatives).

How to Make Hummingbird Food

I do not color the sugar water because it is harmful to the birds.  I choose to purchase a red feeder.  No food coloring needed.


1 cup of white sugar
4 cups water

Boil water and add sugar.  Stir until sugar dissolves. Cool and fill the feeder.
