    The hummingbird food recipe consists of 1 part white sugar to 4 parts water. This 1 to 4 ratio will closely match that found in actual flower nectar. Start by stirring the sugar into the water while bringing the mixture to a boil over low heat. Boiling the solution is important as it helps remove chlorine from the water and kills mold and yeast spores that might be in the sugar. Boil the hummingbird food recipe for two minutes and let cool. Do not boil any longer than 2 minutes or you will boil away too much of the water and change the ratio of sugar to water. I have read that higher sugar concentration resulting from boiling too long, will be more attractive to insects. Once the homemade hummingbird food recipe is cool you can add it to your feeder and store any excess nectar in the refrigerator (for 7 - 8 days) for use at a later date.

I think I have figured out why this bird is called a violet-ear I've been in the hummingbird aviary at the zoo a lot. I've seen this bird pretty much every time. Today was the first time I saw it do this. Another bird was getting a drink or something above it and it got mad. These ear-flaps suddenly flipped up and it chittered up a storm.
