Want to delight in the delicate beauty of hummingbirds? Beckon them to your outdoor space with this set of 3 luster colored glass hanging feeders. The nectar will provide them with much-needed energy for chasing bugs.
Sweet and Simple Nectar Recipe: Ingredients: 4 cups of filtered water, 1 cup of regular white sugar. Bring water to a boil. Remove from heat. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Wait for the nectar to cool before filling the feeder. Store the leftovers in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Position the feeders near flowers, a garden, bird bath, or small fountain. Put the feeder in a shady spot, because if it sits in the direct sun all day, the nectar will quickly spoil. If you have no other option, clean and replace with fresh syrup daily.
Important safety tips: never put honey, gelatin, brown sugar, or artificial sweeteners in a feeder, as they can produce deadly mold. To protect the birds from cats and other animals, hang the feeder at least 4 feet from the ground.
Cleaning Instructions: Clean feeder every 2-4 days by removing the tube or spout and flushing both the tube and feeder with warm water. Do not use soap, as hummingbirds hate the taste. For a more thorough monthly cleaning, soak the feeder in a mixture of ¼ cup white vinegar and 1 gallon of water, then clean with a bottle brush. Rinse with fresh water before refilling.
