    Butterfly feeder & nectar

    Hummingbirds love to perch when resting, preening, or guarding a nearby feeder. Make a DIY Hummingbird Swing to draw them in. Learn more on the Birds & Blooms BLog.

    Please, do not put honey, Jell-O, brown sugar, fruit, or red food coloring in your feeder! Honey ferments rapidly when diluted with water and can cause mouth sores and even kill hummingbirds. The red dye has NO beneficial ingredients, and it is not necessary to color the water to attract birds to your feeder. Further, there are unverified reports that red dye can cause tumors in hummers.

    DIY hummingbird nectar is so easy to make and less expensive than store bought.
