Homemade Organic Hummingbird Nectar

Organic Hummingbird Nectar

I am such an animal lover.  As a kid, I had rabbits, lots of them, dogs, a cat (once or twice, but my mom is allergic), I rode horses and took lessons, fish, and a desert tortoise to name a few.  Now we have a dog, a cat (sorry Mom!), a beta fish, two ducks that have recently adopted our backyard pool, and I have a hummingbird feeder.  I love watching the birds from my kitchen window while a wash dishes and cook!  Although I really wish we had a chickens, a horse, and a cow… but we live in the city, where land is limited.

I LOVE caring for animals!  I find them lovable and beautiful.

I’ve never owned a bird of my own, but I love watching them.  Hummingbirds are captivating.

For years I’ve been making my own hummingbird nectar.  I started because it is so simple to make and saved me money, I continue because the stuff they sell in the stores is toxic, with Red #40 and preservatives!  I believe in caring for Gods creation with love and respect.  If I am going to feed them… it’s going to be from His ingredients.
