How Sweet Should Nectar Sources Be?

Have you ever wondered just how sweet hummingbirds like nectar sources to be? If so this post will provide you with the answer and it may surprise you.

It may surprise you to discover that a hummingbird will reject flower types that produce nectar which is less than 12% sugar and prefer those whose sugar content is around 25%. I myself find it quite interesting to know that even some of nature’s creatures seem to have such a fondness for things which are quite sweet, not so unlike many of us humans.
