We own a small wild bird retail store and the question gets asked over and over again. “How to make hummingbird and hummingbird nectar?” It gets asked so often that we decided to do something about it. We solved the problem by creating the Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker.
If you want to do it the old fashion way and have 1.5 hours to kill then… Hummingbird nectar is a 1:4 ratio and Oriole nectar is a 1:6 ratio of sugar to water. You are going to have to bring the mixture to a boil for about 10 minutes, and then let the nectar set for at least an hour just to cool down.
