Reviewer: Suzanna Burnham
Perky Pet has been the only brand Hummingbird Feeder I purchase for several years, due to the drip-free design, ease of filling and just plain good design. They've made a few improvements recently; they are reflected in this feeder, which includes an integral ant-guard. I have bought separate guards for my older feeders, but having one built-in is a very useful new feature. They've also re-designed the glass bottle and feeder tray with a wider opening--I still use a funnel to make filling easier, but the new design is much, much better and another good change.

We had a few hummingbirds but the moment I started to hang this one the hummingbirds were gathering around it! We have had hummingbirds by the hundreds! I fill it 3 times a day! They don't mind you being up close and watching either! I'm getting two more for next year!
Finally, a feeder that has only 3 parts to clean! It has a nice wide mouth to refill without a funnel and no more trying to figure out how to get that silly little white plastic insert in place. I've seen reviews that claimed it leaked, well it does NOT leak unless you don't screw the lid on tightly. The ant mote built into the top piece is genius! I love this feeder and the 8 oz one too! I have 7 feeders and have to refill them every day!! Thanks for making it easier!

I've had these feeders before.The only trouble I've ever had was when I dropped it and it broke. You'll need to purchase some tiny little bottle brushes to clean the ports. I clean the feeder with soap and water about once a week.
Oh, and the hummingbirds love it. Many feeders don't have perches. I like to give them a place to rest while they sip.

This feeder does not let the ants and bugs into it.
Amazon Review July 15, 2014
This was exactly what I was looking for to replace my older, smaller feeder that finally broke. looks good, good quality, good capacity as I wanted a bit more capacity than the 8 ounces of my old feeder. The problem is that the base holds a lot of nectar so when you fill the bottle, screw on the base, and turn it over, a lot of nectar drops into the base, leaving the bottle right around half full. While it is holding the full 16 ounces, it seems like there should be a way to keep the bottles full, along with the base to maximize the capacity. There is. What I do is fill the base and bottle with nectar. Place a piece of cardboard (a piece of a cereal box or Coke 12 pack) over the opening of the bottle, turn it over (the cardboard keeps the nectar in the bottle), place it over the base, pull the cardboard out quickly, and screw the bottle into the base. Very little spills and I get to use the full capacity of the feeder. A quick rinse just to get rid of any spilled nectar and I hang them up. Not as easy as filling and hanging my old one but it only takes a few extra minutes.

I ordered this Hummingbird Feeder for a friend who is a bit of a fanatic about watching the hummingbirds come to the feeders in her yard. She has a few other feeders but reports that the Perky Pet 210B is a "good one." Since she is allergic to bee venom - she was quite pleased with the bee "drowner" feature (she'd rather see a dead bee than a live one!) and she likes the ant trap as well. What she really likes is that this feeder is glass and has a wider mouth than other feeders so is easier to clean. My husband used some "twist-tie" cord to modify the hanger, to make the feeder easier to hang. The free nectar was a nice gift feature (sort of a "2-in1" package) but there was only enough nectar mix for a starter batch. Based on my friend's report, I will buy this Perky-Pet 210PB feeder again as a gift for hummingbird lovers and recommend it highly. I took away one star because my friend mentioned that the hummingbirds don't seem to perch as well on this feeder as they do on other ones.

The Perky Pet 210PB Glass Hummingbird works. The unit has a sufficinetly large opening, so it can be filled relatively easily.
If you need a larger feeder like this, it may be a good choice. However, be mindful of the fact that the sugar water must be changed every five (5) days or so. Accordingly, you may find that sixteen (16) ounces of fluid is more than you need and you may end up pouring most of it out at the end of the week. An eight (8) ounce unit may be a better choice.
This model lacks an included hook for hanging.
The bottle of this model is not open at each end, it is more difficult to clean than a model with a larger opening at the top. Perky Pet makes at least one other model which opens on both ends allowing you to clean and fill the glass jar though the larger end. That means that you can use a soapy paper towel (rinse well afterwards with hot water to remove all traces of soap), to clean the bottle rather than having to purchase and use a narrow bottle washer brush.
I have four different models, but far prefer the Perky Pet Perky-Pet 130TF 8-Ounce Glass Top Fill Hummingbird Feeder which has not of the above shortcomings and is a easy to fill and clean. It comes with a small "S-Hook" for hanging, too.
