The Hummingbirds Are Back Let’s Make Some Food

The Hummingbirds Are Back

My favorite past time during the summer is to sit on my back deck with an ice cold drink in hand and watch the hummingbirds feed.

I love to listen to the sound of their wings, they just amaze!

Sugar Water Recipe

For years I purchased hummingbird nectar to share with my fair weather friends. Then, my husband’s grandfather shared this simple, sugar water recipe with me.

Now I can fill up my feeders anytime I’d like.

 

How to Make Hummingbird Sugar Water

Note on Using Colorings in Hummingbird Feeder:

The coloring is not needed in this recipe.
I believe it just isn’t healthy for the birds and that is why I had to write that IF desired into the recipe. I dislike getting into fistfights on the net over it on forums, In the beginning, I’d fight about it; but each time a person came back with the dreaded words but companies use coloring. That fact alone it is something you just can’t argue with, nor can I come up with a proper come back for. Now, I have adapted you do you, and I’ll do me attitude on the subject of coloring.

Over the years I have lured hummingbirds and additional feathered friends into my backyard. Trying to get some excellent photography shots.  You can read some of my posts here that I use more of my photography in.

You can purchase prints from the albums, if you fancy anything.
