    Ingredients:

    Serves: 1

    Yield:

    batch

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Boil water.
    2. 2
      Mix in ordinary white granulated sugar.
    3. 3
      Stir and allow the mixture to cool.
    4. 4
      When the nectar is room temperature, fill your clean oriole feeder.
    5. 5
      Tips: This is 6 parts water to 1 part sugar.
    6. 6
      Never use dyes or food coloring, as they are not healthy for hummingbirds or orioles.
    7. 7
      Never use honey when making your nectar mix. Honey attracts bees and can grow black fungus that will cause a fatal liver and tongue disease in hummingbirds.
    8. 8
      Replace the nectar once every three to four days and clean the feeder thoroughly.
    9. 9
      Unused nectar can be refrigerated for up to two weeks.
    10. 10
      You will need to clean your feeder every few days, with hot water and a mild (10%) bleach solution to inhibit mold. Rinse thoroughly before refilling with water syrup.

      This will attract the orioles and they are beautiful birds...although I use a 1/2 cup sugar to 2 cups boiling water, makes it just a little sweeter for them :-)

      That is not really oriole nectar, it's sugar water!!! Oriole nectar should have some vitamins and minerals in it.
