The Best Hummingbird Feeder That I have owned! September 05, 2014
I have been a dedicated fan of this design since the earlier version when the hanger was a plastic piece bonded into the top of the glass egg. I also live in Arizona, and have a similar problem reported by a couple of other reviewers. The plastic base cap is very susceptible to sun degradation, and degrades quickly, rendering the rest of the feeder useless. It is very unfortunate to have to throw away the rest of the glass feeder for lack of availability of a replacement bottom cap. Refusing to throw away my feeder, I fashioned a replacement bottom cap from a plastic cap of similar dimension from a liquid laundry detergent container. I fasten the improvised cap with two strips of cellophane tape, somewhat inconvenient, but functional.

This feeder keeps the other big birds away, after 3 days they don't even try to land on it. Which is why I bought it in the first place, I was overrun by birds. The hummers started feeding from it after just a couple of hours. Great little feeder.
