Make your own humming bird food. I use 2 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, bring to a boil, when it's cool, add 3 drops of red food coloring. Love watching my little hummers! Have more visit during the summer but have a few resident ones during the winter so I keep the nectar out year round!

The hummingbird food recipe is made up of 1 part white granulated table sugar and  4 parts of regular tap water. This 1 to 4 ratio of sugar to water will closely resemble the nectar that hummingbirds get from flower blossoms.
