Frugal Homemade Hummingbird Nectar!



I'ts the time of year again when we relish the mild temperatures and consider our back porch a haven. One of the things we love to do is watch the birds flitter and the rabbits frolick in the backyard. You can't beat free family entertainment, right? Well, when I came across this frugal recipe for hummingbird nectar, I knew I had to try it. 

Use this recipe below and sit and watch the hummingbirds from your yard chair or window. They will love you for it.

Homemade Hummingbird Nectar Recipe:

2 cups water, boiling
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Add sugar to boiling water and bring back to a quick boil. Remove from heat and cool. Once completely cooled, add to your hummingbird feeder. Remember to dispose of the nectar after 3 days and replace with a new batch. 

Never add artificial sweetners or honey as it may be lethal to birds.  Do not add food coloring since it could also be unhealthy to our feathered friends.

Enjoy!
