I love these feeders! I have 6 of them and they are sturdy, well made, easy to clean and most importantly they hold 48 ounces.Since we live in an area heavily populated with hummingbirds I go through 3-gallons of sugar water a day and since these feeders hold 48 ounces I only need to fill them once a day. I highly recommend this product! I am definitely a satisfied customer!
Without doubt, this is the best feeder I have ever seen. I love how much sugar water it holds and the ease of cleaning is unbeatable. I have never understood why they make hummingbird feeders that are so hard to clean!
Personally, I leave the flowers and bee guards off and hang it up with the holes in the base open. I have many different species of birds that drink the liquid and this allows access for all of them, regardless of the size and shape of their beaks. I have many house finches. orioles, hummingbirds, and two others whose species I can't bring to mind at the moment. I love to feed them all and this way, they all can join in the feast!
