Note: Some evidence suggests dyes may have negative health effects on humming birds. If you have humming birds in your region, we suggest making this sugar solon without dyes and making your jar extra colorful, instead!

Sugar does not provide these birds with the nutrients they need to survive. Get the proper solution from a pet store or a veterinarian.

The proper ratio water to sugar is 4:1. Nine parts water to one part sugar will fill the bird up with no nutritional value and likely starve the bird. Artificial red dye is made from petrochemicals, again, bad for the bird and completely unnecessary. Just add red coloring to the decorations. I’m not sure the sponge is a good idea either. Will the bird be able to get it’s tongue into the food? Please correct so people do not use the wrong ratio. It’s 4:1, only granulated sugar; not raw, not artificial, not brown sugar.
