Now you can feed hummingbirds right out of the palm of your hand! Try to stand near an existing hummingbird feeder so the birds will get used to the Nectar Dot, and wear sunglasses to help hide your eyes so the birds will not see your eye movements and become spooked. With a little bit of patience and luck, the hummingbirds will be flocking to your hand in no time! To make the nectar, simply dissolve 1/4 cup regular granulated white sugar in 1 cup of clean water. Always stick to the four to one ratio when making hummingbird food. Do not add colour, and only ever use white sugar.
