of boiling water
1/6 cup of sugar (white sugar works fine)
The basic recipe is six parts water to one part
sugar. You may find that the sugar crystals
dissolve best in hot water. Remember to allow the
water to cool sufficiently before hanging the
feeder back in its position outside. Any left
over sugar-water can be stored in the
refrigerator for several days.
Nectar should be replaced a minimum of once a
week and more often in the summer. If possible,
its best to locate the feeder in the shade.
Always clean your oriole feeder with mild
detergent and rinse thoroughly each time you
replace the nectar.
