Make Your Own Oriole Nectar

 

 

Mix together:

1 cup of boiling water (measure after boiling)
1/6 cup of white granulated sugar (do not use honey or artificial sweeteners)

The basic recipe is six parts water to one part sugar. Granulated sugar dissolves better in boiling water. Allow the water to cool sufficiently before hanging the feeder back in its position outside. Any left over sugar-water can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.

Nectar should be replaced a minimum of once a week and more often in the summer. If possible, its best to locate the feeder in the shade. Always clean your oriole feeder with mild detergent and rinse thoroughly each time you replace the nectar.

Do not add food coloring it is not necessary and may actually be harmful to birds!
