Hummingbird Food

High Sugar Concentration

The sugar content of most hummingbird flowers is about 25%. If you want to make your sugar solution closer to this then use 3 parts water to one part sugar. This sugar concentration, approximately 23% by weight, is closer to the nectar content of most hummingbird flowers. This mixture will also freeze more slowly in the winter.
