What to Put in Hummingbird Feeder


  1. Hello! Thank you for your help! Can I add Bee Pollen to the Sugar Water, and how much according to your Sugar Water Recipe?

    1. Nope, you’re not allowed to add Bee Pollen to the sugar water for hummingbirds. This is because Bee Pollen is not beneficial to hummingbirds. They don’t eat pollen intentionally. If there is some pollen trapped in the nectars, they won’t eat your sugar water.

  2. Any problem adding a small pinch of sea salt or table salt to our solution to help keep it from freezing on the cold winter days?

  3. My husband likes to use his alkaline water when making feeder food. I’m concerned that the pH can affect their little bodies. Is alkaline water ok to use?

    1. It is better not to use any water with high pH. So you should use the normal tap water.
