Review RateperchesI recently purchased this feeder and find that the hummers don't light on the perches. I believe the perches are too close to the flowers. They feed while hovering but won't light. I do wish they could rest and feed at the same time. I tried bending the perches away but am afraid of breaking them. I plan to try heating them gently to get more clearance. Otherwise a very nice feederResponse From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and would like to provide assistance.
Since birds eat in nature while hovering, they have very weak legs and feet, and often are more comfortable not perching while feeding. Our feeders are designed to provide an experience for birds similar to what they find in nature, though we do include perches on many of our models. Depending on the species and size, some birds will light more or less often on specific perches.
Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe hummers seem to love this feeder (they've been there all day!), and the perches are really cute. We've had no problems with "sharp barbs" as reported by some other reviewers.If the feeder is leaking, try taking it apart and starting again. Mine has kept a strong seal for two years. We have also received good support from Perky-Pet in the past; they replaced an earlier feeder that broke upon first use (different design).Finally, there is no need to buy food or use red dye. The "recipe" is 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. This will hold about a cup at a time; I make 2.5 cups and store some in the fridge (.5 cup sugar and 2 cups water). You do want to change the solution regularly, and this feeder makes it easy to do so because it will hold the seal until you unpop it, meaning you don't get sugar water all over your kitchen floor or deck.Would definitely buy this again.
Review RateSorry, but is does leakSeems other reviewers learned a trick that I can't match: I've disassembled and reassembled this feeder at least 5 times, but the nectar mix still leaks from the base (where lower portion connects to upper portion of base). I've filled it from the top, pulled up the glass container to release the mix, then hang the feeder. If anything moves it (wind, etc.), it spills drops of nectar onto the deck (making ants very happy). Suggestions?
Review RateAmazon ReviewI already have one of these units and installed a second one. It works well and the hummingbirds like it.
Review RateAmazon Review, does not leakSome others reported that this leaked. My guess is that they expected the bottom to be tightly screwed on when they got it. After reading those reviews, when I received mine I made certain that I adjusted all fittings and it works great!
Review RateAmazon Review, Great design...I'm not a rocket scientist but after less than 1 minute of disassembling/reassembling the unit I understood how it worked. I then filled it and put it out... three weeks later I have refilled it twice and love the design. The people who have had isssues must not have filled it correctly... I'm assuming they don't realizes it pulls up/down to create a vacuum. Its pretty simple... make sure everythings tight; add room temperature mixture; hang the feeder and pull the bottom down to creat the vacuum . A+++++
Review RateAmazon Review, We love it!Best hummingbird feeder we've ever had. We love it, our birds love it, and it's easy to clean and refill. Great design!
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis feeder works wonderfully for us. It took a while to figure out how to use it properly. Once we did, it's the best feeder we've had. It doesn't leak, like so many reviewers complained about. We've had wind gusts up to 50 mph, with no leaks. It took a while for the hummingbirds to figure out the perches, but once they did, they're here all the time. Truly a pleasure to fill from the top. You just need to remember to close the container (push down)before filling it. Then pull up and you're set to go. Also much easier to clean this feeder than any other feeder we've had to date. The hummingbirds now love it and are fighting for space.
Review RateAmazon Review, Nice feederNice decor item for the garden, don't spill so you don't have to worry for clean. It's great to see it & birds seems to love it.

Hummingbird Feeders - Expert Tips
Filling Your Feeder:
Here are a few things to review before filling the feeder:
- Check to make sure the base compartments are securely tightened
- Push container into base to close ports to prevent leakage
- Unscrew to cap to fill with nectar
- Screw cap back on securely to form an airtight seal.
- We recommend keeping the feeder in the closed position until you get to the spot where you want to hang it.
- To open nectar reservoir - hold base with one hand and pull up on the container with the other to open ports for feeding. Your feeder is now ready.
Please note: if the cap does not fit securely on to the feeder and you see a gap between the cap and the feeder, the seal may be the issue. Please contact our Consumer Care Department at 1.800.800.1819 or email@example.com to request a new outer ring for you cap.
To replace the outer ring, push firmly on the center of the cap to pop out the middle. Replace with new outer ring.

- Bird Baths - A clean and reliable water source is an excellent way to attract birds to your yard, especially those birds that do not necessarily eat seed or nectar. All birds will seek out a water supply, not only for drinking but also for keep themselves clean and healthy.
