This is a cheap recipe for hummingbird feeders my step mother-in-law uses all the time and she says it works as well as the syrup you buy in stores.

Never ever put red food dye in this recipe. It is harmful to the birds and can cause the syrup to spoil quicker. Use 1 part sugar with 4 parts water and bring to a boil to kill any bacteria or mold present.
