Here's what we did.
Put 1/4 cup of sugar and 3/4 water into a small sauce pot. Put it on the stove to dissolve the sugar, not to boil it up. Just dissolve the sugar. Then we put the pot aside to cool. When it was cool we poured it into the hummingbird feeder and hung it outside.
We will empty and refill it every 4-5 days. This is so that no icky bacteria or mold grows inside and harms the hummingbirds.
In my experience we have to fill it a few times before the hummingbirds "discover" it. So now we wait!
Thanks for stopping in!
