Meeting Hummingbirds' Nectar Needs

To maintain their frantic lifestyle, hummingbirds require a lot of calories, and they need it fast. In fact, they can lap up nectar from the feeders and flowers at an amazing rate of 12 times a second!

As the temperatures heat up, be sure to keep your hummingbird nectar fresh by replacing it every few days, but just as important, keep it simple; 4 parts water to 1 part plain table sugar.
