We have hummingbirds
Mix 1 cup of sugar with 4 cups of water in pitcher or jar or something.
No need to boil the water ('less you want to)
Store in the refrigerator ('cause of ants & stuff)
Change the mixture ever so often, depending on how hot it is - when it's in the 90's, every 2 or 3 days. If it's cooler it can go longer.
Patti Anne did not add red coloring to the mixture - the feeder itself is red with little red flower shapes and she figured that was good enough.
They's probably other ways, as I used to say before I went to school, but this worked. For what it's worth, we can now look at humming birds every now and then.
