Types of Plastic Hummingbird Feeders
Traditional Bottom Fill – Plastic bottom fill hummingbird feeders hold nectar in an inverted reservoir that is attached to a tray. This inversion creates a vacuum seal to hold the nectar in the reservoir, only dispensing the nectar that’s needed.
Top Fill – Top fill hummingbird feeders are easy to fill and simple to clean. There is no need to remove the entire bottle to fill these feeders. Simply unscrew the top cap, pour nectar into the wide-mouth top opening, and you’re ready to go! The expertly designed float mechanism within the feeder base allows only the necessary amount of nectar to be dispensed!
Dish – Plastic dish hummingbird feeders hold nectar in a covered saucer. The large surface area of these plastic feeders allow for up to six hummingbirds to feed at one time. These feeders are versatile and can be hung, pole mounted, or even attached to a window for optimal viewing! The wide opening of the dish makes cleaning and refilling stress-free.
