Do you buy or make hummingbird food?
My MIL used to make food, I think she boiled sugar and water together? (She passed away, so I don't know exactly how she did it.) She also added red food coloring, but she had clear feeders, mine is blue glass; would I still add the coloring?
Any help is much appreciated, I'm new at this bird feeding thing.
I usually buy but after reading this I think I'll be making it.
"Adding red food-dye coloring is unnecessary. The red on a feeder is enough to attract hummers. DO NOT USE HONEY as this can kill hummingbirds."
