About | Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker

The Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker is brought to you by Bird Ready, Inc.  We own a wild bird retail store in NE Atlanta. We are always on the lookout for new, useful, and interesting products.

We don’t get many orioles in NE Georgia. However feeding hummingbirds throughout the hummingbird season are a big part of our business. From March through September we spend a lot of time thinking about these birds and how to keep the nectar fresh.

This particular product, the original Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker,  was born to solve the age old problem – that is getting the correct mixture for the nectar. During the season I probably get asked 3 times a day “How do you make hummingbird nectar?”

Hummingbirds need a 1 to 4 ratio of sugar to water. Any sweeter and it could harm the bird, too much water and they will fly away to find something sweeter.

The nectar you buy in wild bird stores like ours only needs to mix with cold water. Try our Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker. The quick and easy way to mix your hummingbird or oriole nectar.
