Clean the hummingbird feeder well.
I have 2 feeders that are 8 ounces each. You want a water to sugar ratio of 4 to 1 so I am using 1/2 cup of sugar for 2 cups of water.
Sugar measure as explained in last step
Pour in the sugar and stir until clear. Using hot tap water allows the sugar to dissolve faster.
The mixture is now ready.
Fill your feeders and hang.

Why would you want to add food colouring? The feeders are brightly coloured enough. Just a thought. I wish I lived somewhere that could get hummingbirds.

Please tell me how food colouring is harmful
The red dye is actually harmful. The clear sugar water is much better. They are actually attracted by the scent of the sugar.
Red food colouring is fine for the birds just add a couple drops to the mixture and yes they love sugared water
They eat sugar water?
2 cups hot tap water
1/2 cup white sugar
