Make a Hummingbird Feeder

Make a batch of hummingbird nectar to feed your tiny feathered friends. Hummingbirds love nectar and these plans add a tasty and nutritious snack bar that will keep them fed and your family entertained.

Hummingbirds will take sugar water from artificial feeders. These feeders allow you to observe and enjoy hummingbirds up close while providing the birds with a reliable source of energy, especially when flower blossoms are less abundant.
