Filling Your Feeder:
Here are a few things to review before filling the feeder:
Check to make sure the base compartments are securely tightened
Push container into base to close ports to prevent leakage
Unscrew to cap to fill with nectar
Screw cap back on securely to form an airtight seal.
We recommend keeping the feeder in the closed position until you get to the spot where you want to hang it.
To open nectar reservoir - hold base with one hand and pull up on the container with the other to open ports for feeding. Your feeder is now ready.
Please note: if the cap does not fit securely on to the feeder and you see a gap between the cap and the feeder, the seal may be the issue. Please contact our Consumer Care Department at 1.800.800.1819 or email@example.com to request a new outer ring for you cap.
To replace the outer ring, push firmly on the center of the cap to pop out the middle. Replace with new outer ring.

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.

Works Well So FarGot this to replace one similar to it, older model I think. Works well but is all plastic, so I will probably only last a couple seasons like the last one.

Amazon ReviewWe have had similar push-pull feeders and like this one even better. The quality is good. The amount it holds is better for us than the 16 ounce (less likely to spoil before it is empty so less waste). This model is also prettier to look at. The hummingbirds are using it easily.

Amazon ReviewThis top loading feeder works far beyond my expectations. After reading the reviews, I was worried. However, I read the instructions and put it together in less than a minute. It works perfectly!

Amazon ReviewThe hummers seem to love this feeder (they've been there all day!), and the perches are really cute. We've had no problems with "sharp barbs" as reported by some other reviewers.If the feeder is leaking, try taking it apart and starting again. Mine has kept a strong seal for two years. We have also received good support from Perky-Pet in the past; they replaced an earlier feeder that broke upon first use (different design).Finally, there is no need to buy food or use red dye. The "recipe" is 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. This will hold about a cup at a time; I make 2.5 cups and store some in the fridge (.5 cup sugar and 2 cups water). You do want to change the solution regularly, and this feeder makes it easy to do so because it will hold the seal until you unpop it, meaning you don't get sugar water all over your kitchen floor or deck.Would definitely buy this again.

Amazon ReviewFeeders came way before they were due. I no sooner had it up when the hummers were slurping from it. They were packed well; and had no trouble with the filling them and hanging them.
