That would be good for a first batch. It's stronger than needed, though. Once you've gotten them to come to your feeders, you can use 4 parts water to 1 part sugar--so 1/4 c sugar to a cup of water

I usually make the first batch sweeter in a 3:1 ratio--coming off of migration they can use the extra calories
