Review RateBeautiful and effective!I bought 4 of these and have to refill them daily. We have at least 50 hummingbirds enjoying these feeders.
Review RateAmazon ReviewBest hummingbird feeder ever! Of course it looks fantastic, and our resident hummers love it. We make our own nectar with sugar boiled in water. We're also lazy, not the type to empty & scrub feeder every week (really, who does that?). With 3-4 regular hummingbirds, the large capacity can last for several weeks. As the feeder is in shade almost all day, we've never had the nectar go funky on us, even in a Phoenix summer. After maybe 1 1/2 -2 years, some of the red coloring has flaked off the very bottom of the bottle - it's not red glass throughout, but has held up really well. The metal top part with the flowers is sturdy and mates up with the plastic bottom making a secure seal. Our feeder got knocked off a perch about 4 feet high, onto river rocks, and cracked the plastic threads inside. The bottle survived, and the metal top got a bit bent. Now it leaks a bit and the threads won't hold securely (a larger bird partially dislodged the feeder portion, spilling a half full bottle of nectar). So, we're buying another one! We've uploaded a slow-motion video of our backyard hummers enjoying and fighting over the feeder, AFTER it was first broken!
Review RateAmazon ReviewLooks great and my hummingbirds are going to be soooo attracted to the bright red color of shimmering glass.
Review RateAmazon ReviewGot this for my Grandma for Christmas, it's so pretty and she loves it!!
Review RateAmazon ReviewIt's beautiful. I wish it had the little stand for the hummingbirds to rest, but I think it'll work fine. :)
Review RateAmazon ReviewVery good quality glass bottle and feeder, I noticed there were some sharp plastic sprues on the inside of the plastic bowl, I simply smoothed them down with my dremmel. I didn't want to risk the birds scratching their long tongues on the sprues. It only took a sec. Other than that, it is very nice, the wire assemblage for hanging is very strong, just went through a huge rain storm and did not fall off hook or fill with rain, as some cheap feeders have done. Glass bottle is easier to keep clean of mold than plastic bottles.
Review RateAmazon ReviewBeautiful and my hummingbirds LOVE this feeder!
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe neck of the bottle is very narrow so it is best to use a funnel. It is also slow to dry out, and you aren't supposed to fill it until it is dry. I agree it is a bit hard to hang because the metal hanger is so close to the bottle. You have to tip it sideways to put it on a shepherd's hook.The first visiting hummer would hover, staring and the bottle, fly down and sip, then hover and stare at the bottle. I think she liked the color.

Hummingbird Feeders - FAQs
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.
