I'm a newbie when it comes to Hummingbirds. We recently inherited a feeder at work and all the cute little birds with it. I became such a fan I decided to try one out at home.
Not wanting to invest too much right away because I had been told that it could be difficult to attract them this time of year, I bought this feeder on sale. Set up was easy and instead of using a premixed solution I used the same recipe we were using at work, that I was told had been working for 10 years. (1/3 sugar, 2/3 water) I actually sat and watched the feeder for about the first 10 minutes it was up. Not really expecting Hummingbirds that quickly, but who knew?
The next morning I had almost forgotten about the feeder until I looked up from pouring my coffee and saw a bird out there! You would have thought I had won the lottery. Now I don't know if it was the bird feeder, the food, maybe a nearby feeder I wasn't aware of or just plain LUCK, but because they did appear I have to give this feeder 5 stars!
The hummingbird feeder is perfect..This one had the little perch by each of the feeding spots which many do not. I think the little guys like to rest their tiny wings. They seem to really enjoy it and it's indeed a joy to watch.
