Hummingbird nectar recipe

Hummingbird nectar recipe.From what we have read and from what we do the most popular hummingbird nectar recipe is four parts water and one part white sugar. Some people say you should boil the water first and others say it doesn’t matter,we just use cold tap water and stir the sugar until it dissolves. Most everyone agrees that you should not use any coloring because it may be harmful to the hummingbirds. It is important not to overfill the feeder or spill any of the nectar on the feeder because this will attract unwanted bugs. Since our last post we have had regular visits from two or three females and for the first time for us we have had visits from a male rubythroat all week. The last few years we  would only see males on occasion usually during migration time, hopefully this one will stay long enough that we can get a picture of him.
