Several years ago I purchased an attractive hummingbird feeder made by Opus, called the Garden Ballet Hummingbird Feeder Mobile. After many seasons of use and enjoyment, the feeder's three hanging nectar containers were in need of being replaced. When I contacted the company a few weeks ago, I learned that particular model of feeder was no longer being made, and was told that no similar replacement containers were available. However, I was unwilling to give up on my beloved feeder so readily.
After a lengthy online search, I found this Garden Jewels 10 oz. glass feeder. In size, shape and structure, it is quite similar to the nectar containers I was attempting to replace, with a simply designed clear glass storage vessel and a red plastic thread-on bottom with feeding port. I ordered three, and I'm pleased to report that they arrived quickly and safely via one of Amazon's featured merchants. They fit perfectly on my mobile and function exactly as the originals did for so long, in addition to looking great. And the most important result is that they are a big hit with our resident hummers!
All in all, I am quite pleased with this purchase. I'm even considering buying an extra set of these to set aside for the future, so I won't have to worry about finding replacements for these somewhere down the road. This feeder serves my purposes perfectly, and I'd think it would work as a stand alone feeder just as well. I've not had these long enough to speak to their durability, but they appear to be every bit as sturdy as my originals, which lasted for several years.

Makes a lovely feeder for our backyard hummingbirds. I attached it to a 16-inch beaded wire. I've ordered 2 more as gifts. Also, there's no place for bigger birds to land and attempt to feed, so they're no longer a problem.
