Review RateExactly what I wanted!!Love this hummingbird feeder! Looked and looked and was so happy I found it here!! Bought two!
Review RateAll mine does is leakI bought two...and all they do is leak. I have screwed the caps on as tight as I can, and all the bottom pieces as well, yet when I hang them out, after a day or so, they start dripping, creating a mess. I'm not happy at all.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Christian,
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more and make this right. When the bottle is tightly secured to the base, the feeder should not be leaking.

Review RatePoor DesignI bought this a week ago and have had issue with the vacuum seal. Will not consistently hold liquid. Poor design and construction.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for providing this valuable feedback. We apologize for this experience. As you know, creating a vacuum is necessary for proper use.

Review RateHummers pass it byI had difficulty getting this not to leak but finally got it set up. It's a great concept, but my hummers don't use it. Couldn't figure out why we had no birds, so I set up an old one. Hummers will perch on the new one and then go on to the old design. I thought maybe the vaccum made it hard for them to feed but perhaps it is the flowers as someone else thought. Needs a little work!
Review RateFlaw in gasket causes it to leakI bought this push-pull model yesterday and have filled it twice in one day because it leaks air at the top. There is a visible flaw in the rubber gasket that seals the lid. It looks like an eighth of an inch rough mark that was caused by separating the part from the mold. No amount of torque could stop the leak. Rather than discard it I placed a rubber band at the base of the threads on the container top which has sealed it. Nice idea but needs more R & D. I would not recommend this purchase.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Dave,

Review RatePerfect... If You Read the Directions!!!Absolutely LOVE this feeder; it's nice looking and well made! Works perfectly IF you follow the directions! I didn't and couldn't understand why I never saw a hummer. The nectar just sat there filling up with ants until it evaporated. Finally took it down and apart (which was super easy) and gave it a good wash. Filled it up with water and played with it until I figured it out. *PULL UP to OPEN; PUSH DOWN to CLOSE!* Super simple!!! By the end of summer, I bought five of these feeders which my hummers enjoyed from morning to dark! They don't appear to leak, even during windy storms (which they've been through several)!
Review RateNew Push Pull Humingbird Feeder Gasket misunderstandingI have had this feeder all summer and could not get it to quit pouring out the nectar. After reading Matt's review with great instructions, I tried again and sure enough I was not closing tight enough to get the gasket to work properly. Thanks for the help, wish I had found it earlier.
Review RateGreat FeederI put this feeder up a week ago and have had non stop hummingbirds! I never realized that I had so many hummingbirds in my yard. I have had a couple of problems with the seal but once figured out, it works great.
Review RateFirst feeder, no issuesFirst, a disclosure: I am writing about a "review" model of this feeder that I received from a vendor. I have no prior experience with hummingbirds or feeding them.That being said, this is a thoughtfully designed vessel and feeder. Both the base and the top are removed by unscrewing, making all parts accessible for a quick cleaning.The feeder came with less-than-minimal instructions (a few vague words on a sticker on the bottom of the feeder), and it was completely unclear to me what Perky-Pet meant by a "sports bottle" design. This cries for at least a slip of illustrated paper in the box—I'd even be happy to write it for them.The steps are:1. Prepare nectar and cool if necessary. (We use 4:1 water to sugar.)2. Close the bottom cover by screwing it onto the post. It must be tight enough to seal, but do not overtighten or you may break the post.3. Ensure that the clear nectar vessel is closed by pushing down with your flat palm on the rim.4. Fill the nectar vessel with the prepared nectar. For best results fill as close as possible to the rim. The vessel has a capacity of 16 oz (473ml).5. Close the top cover by screwing it clockwise onto the rim. Continue to turn the cover until the rubber gasket is firmly seated.6. Hang the feeder.7. Pull DOWN on the red base until it moves about a half inch (1.27cm). You may see two or three air bubbles float up in the nectar vessel when it is open. Check for drips or leaks.When done correctly, this is a completely mess-free way to maintain a feeder, and we have in our first week already attracted the ruby-throats that have been cruising our neighborhood.WIth included directions this would be a five-star product!
Review RateGreat feeder lousy instructionsI want to thank Nancy who reviewed this feeder and explained about the seal. I went through at least 2 gallons of nectar and was going to throw the feeder out but thought better instructions might be on the web. Sure enough Nancy had explained to make sure the seal was really tight before opening . Now I can say I really Love this feeder!!! Thanks Nancy for your help.

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.

- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
- Bird Houses - These are a good way to attract those species of birds that nest in holes. These structures should be made of an untreated wood (pine, cedar, etc.) and should have ventilation and drainage holes. It should be durable, and easy to check and clean. more»
- Keeping your feeder clean and full of fresh bird seed is very important to the health of visiting birds. It is recommended that you clean your wild bird feeder every two weeks. more»
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What criteria should I use when selecting a hummingbird feeder?
A: Make sure it is one that will be easy to clean and fill, especially since you will need to clean the feeder every few days. If you are worried about bees and wasps or ants invading the feeder, purchase a hummingbird feeder with bee guards, such as the Perky-Pet model #203CP or ant guards, Perky-Pet model #242.
Q: How do I clean my hummingbird feeders?
A: Hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned every 1-2 weeks. Use hot water and a bottle brush, along with mild soap; be sure to rinse thoroughly. The Perky-Pet cleaning mop is specifically designed for the purpose of cleaning hummingbird feeders, and is very convenient to use. This cleaning mop can also be used on seed feeders and oriole feeders for those small, tight spaces that are difficult to reach.
Q: What is the importance of providing water for hummingbirds?
A: Hummingbirds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need nectar. Hummingbirds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide hummingbirds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for hummingbirds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy.
