1: Make your own homemade hummingbird nectar with just two ingredients: sugar and water.

2: Mix 1 part sugar with 4 parts water, then heat until the sugar dissolves.

3: Let the nectar cool before filling your hummingbird feeders.

4: Avoid using red dye in your nectar – it's harmful to hummingbirds.

5: Change your nectar every 2-3 days to prevent mold growth.

6: Clean your feeders with hot water and vinegar once a week.

7: Hang your feeders in shaded areas to prevent spoilage.

8: Attract more hummingbirds by planting native flowers and providing perches.

9: Enjoy watching these beautiful birds sip homemade nectar in your own backyard!
