Five Stars “I have five different feeders out and this is their favorite! They drain this feeder first and only use the others when chased off this one. As of mid-July we are seeing about ten a month there will be more than we can count. I'm going back to buy a couple more of these. Best of all, they are easy to clean and fill up.” (Review from Konnie) See Review Tab for Reviews »

Perky-Pet® Pinch-Waist Glass Hummingbird Feeder with Free Nectar is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pinch-waist glass hummingbird feeders This product is everything we were looking is not huge, like our other ones, it has the built in bee guards in each "flower", which we were looking for and each "flower" has its own perch bar and it is easy to clean. Also it comes with a packet of nectar. We received them (we bought 3) prior to the estimated delivery date, they were packed very well.....nothing was broken or out of place. You can't beat the price .....we couldn't be happier!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked since day 1 I purchased this at a local store as an anniversary present from my wife. It replaced a much cheaper, $3 version from Big Lots that lasted 4+ years. Within two weeks of installing this and placing liquid inside, I noticed discoloration on the deck boards below. As time passed, I watched the feeder and noticed it leaks a very slow drip from one of the flowers. After about a week, the entire feeder is empty. I enjoy supporting the local hummingbird community and feel bad when one comes around looking for food only to find the feeder empty. If I had a choice to buy this feeder again, I would look elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaky, Leaky, Leaky This is a re-design of the familiar looking feeder from Perky Pets. Unfortunately they need to go back to the drawing board on this one. In an effort to make the glass container easier to clean with a wider mouth they have created a useless feeder. The old small-mouth glass container somehow created a better vacuum inside the nectar reservoir and the old style virtually did no leak. I'm no engineer, but there was also a membrane inside the red plastic feeder/flowers that is now not part of the feeder. Seems the old style benefitted from the small mouth on the reservoir and possibly that membrane. Whatever the case it drips excessively in the same spot the old feeder was installed and did not. I'm going to surmise the sunlight isn't creating the drip since it's the same spot. On a minor side note it's sold as an 8oz feeder but needs about 20% more nectar than that to fill. I'm a fan of Perky Pets Feeders but this one does not work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Size and design We liked the 1st two because of the 8 OZ size (just right), the easy to fill wide mouth of the glass jar, and the anti-ant moat. We now have 6 in use and are adding 3 more in the spring. We place the feeders around the property in such a manner that a bird can't see another when feeding. This minimizes competition between birds. It's the best show on earth!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor design Company was saving by this design. Wide mouthed hopper is not good, if you over-tighten, crack forms on side of item, liquid leaks out. Trash time. Only plus is a glass hopper, ant moat on top. I'm sure manufacturer was thinking it would easier to fill (no need for funnel)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks! Poorly designed feeder. The 'flowers' are too low. The ports are almost even with the level of the food in the container and constantly drips out. Tightening the bottle doesn't help. Unfortunately it seems to be the most popular with the birds. All it would take would be to tilt the 'flowers' up slightly to cure the leaking problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Drips - makes a mess. I bought this 2 weeks ago and it constantly drips. At first I thought it was just the sun heating it up but I moved it and it still dripped. When I bought this I thought "I won't have any trouble with a Perky-Pet feeder!" Now I just paid for an ant feeder! They found the drippings and have a new home. I'm hoping the ants will leave once they realise I'm not hanging this feeder again. Very disappointed. :(

I was all ready to order a couple of these feeders but now I am hesitant in view of the numerous reviews complaining about leaking nectar.   Has this been fixed?

I have a feeder # CPBN. My question is it leaks at the feeder nozzles the Nectar runs out all the time. Is there a fix for this.

Asked by: Mike 46
When this feeder is full of nectar, it should not leak. We recommend ensuring that the bottle and base are tightly secured and that it is hung in a shady location. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

What is being done about the leaking problem of the 203CPBN humming bird feeder. The narrow mouth feeder never leaked and the wide mouth always leaks. Almost all the reviews on different sites say that. This feeder is favored by humming birds.

I have the pinch waist feeder and in the heat of the day the feeder starts to drip and makes a mess on the porch. The feeder is in the shade. What is the fix for this?

Asked by: hootus
I just called and they told me to make sure that the base is screwed on very tightly and that when it gets too hot, it will loosen which will cause the drips. Also to make sure the flowers are pushed on all the way, and keep feeder in the shade. I have my feeders over mulch in my garden so I don't care about the drips but this week, it was pouring out. I'm hoping that screwing on the base extra tight will make a difference.
