This is a great hummingbird feeder! I love it! I haven't had any problems with it at all. It has gotten a little rusty on the bottom, but that doesn't bother me. I will probably get another one when I get more hummingbirds.

However, you have to paint the bottom sand-colored part (not the shells) red. I used fingernail polish, but I plan to pick up some non-toxic paint for the additional feeders I'm ordering. Also, you need to put a clear coat on the inside and outside of the sand-shell cover, including hole metal parts, and the perch because all of these parts rust.
I know it sounds like a lot of trouble, but it doesn't take that long and the feeder not only looks great, but the bees don't bother it and the juveniles and ruffuses can easily reach the holes. The feeder doesn't leak and it's easy to clean. The umbrella unscrews and it all comes apart. It's cup and a half so it's a little bigger than the classic perky-pets 8 oz pinch waist with bee-guards.
I call it the vacation beach house, and summer and winter, it always has guests. :)

My last hummingbird feeder was plastic & it ended up expanding in the heat & leaking all over the patio. I wanted to make sure that I purchased one with a glass bottle, so I could avoid that happening again. This item went perfect with my beach theme that I have going throughout my home & garden. The hole on the bottom for the screw that holds the reservoir in place was too big. I had concerns that it eventually would just fall off if I didn't put a washer underneath it to keep it in place. I filled it up & hung it under the shade of a tree, to keep it out of the sunlight. The temperatures here in the Desert were extremely hot last year. For some reason, I never saw any hummingbirds drinking from it. I thought that was strange, as my last feeder was frequented quite often. It seemed like it was evaporating slowly instead of the hummingbirds drinking it. The nectar started to get moldy spots in it, so I took it inside to change it. When I took it apart, the reservoir area was crystallized sugar, like Rock Candy. Even though it was kept in the shade, apparently the heat from the metal base became too hot & it crystallized the sugar. I wanted it to work, but it just didn't, so I ended up sending it back. I did get a lot of compliments on it during the short time that I kept it up.
