    I would NEVER use corn syrip! It has additives such as vanilla in it! All bird magazines tell you 4 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar-Heat to boil-then cool and fill your feeder! I've done this for 25 years and the birds love it!

    Instructions
    Homemade Bird Nectar


    1
    Measure 4 cups of water and 1 cup of corn syrup.


    2
    Bring the water to a boil.
