Making Your Own Hummingbird and Oriole Nectar

You can make your own hummingbird nectar by following this recipe:

  3. Stir and allow the mixture to cool.
  4. When the nectar is room temperature, fill your clean hummingbird feeder.
You can make your own oriole nectar by following this recipe:
  1. Boil 6 parts water.
  2. Mix 1 part ordinary white granulated sugar.
  3. Stir and allow the mixture to cool.
  4. When the nectar is room temperature, fill your clean oriole feeder.
Tips:
  1. Never use red dyes or food coloring, as they are not healthy for hummingbirds or orioles.
  2. Never use honey when making your nectar mix. Honey attracts bees and can grow black fungus that will cause a fatal liver and tongue disease in hummingbirds.
  3. Replace the nectar once every three to four days and clean the feeder thoroughly.
  4. Unused nectar can be refrigerated for up to two weeks.
