Hummingbird Food

Nectar Solution Ratio in the Winter

During the winter months you will have fewer hummingbirds visiting your hummingbird feeders, but this is not to say that the feeders don’t still provide a vital source of nourishment to the birds that visit your feeders. In the winter, you may wish to change your ratio used to make your nectar solution from the usual 4:1 mix to 3:1 to help retard freezing of the nectar solution. Even in the winter, it is not necessary to put anything in the nectar solution other then sugar water.
