Humming Bird Food

Humming Bird Food

Horses are the love of my life. They are loyal, sweet, and gracious companions who do more for the human spirit than any other being I have ever encountered. I love all animals though. Here at the ranch we have a lot of flora and fauna around. As spring is here, the birds are chirping away and one of my most favorite birds to watch are the hummingbirds. I enjoy watching them flit through the air, their little wings going a hundred miles an hour. They come in a variety of colors that light up the sky for me. Since there are so many around, I decided this year to hang feeders and make up some nectar for them. I found this easy recipe on The Smithsonian national Park site.

Directions for making safe hummingbird food:

  1. Mix 1 part sugar with 4 parts water and bring to a boil to kill any bacteria or mold present.
  2. Cool and fill feeder.
  3. Extra sugar water may be stored in a refrigerator.
  4. Red dye should not be added.
