Product Description

Color: Ruffle Red

Amazon.com

Swinging gently in a summer breeze, this beautiful globe looks more like a work of art than a hummingbird feeder. Designed by Par-A-Sol from their extensive Dew Drop pattern, the hand blown glass ornament sparkles in sunlight while nurturing tiny feathered friends. Simply fill the feeder with a simple sugar and water solution.

Constructed of recycled, colored glass, the feeder requires frequent hot water cleaning and solution refreshment to keep mold from clustering in the slender feeding tube. The globe has an attached glass loop at its top, and a 7-inch hook is enclosed for hanging. The feeder measures 4-1/2 inches in diameter. --Jessica Reuling

Product Description

Marvel at the iridescent beauty of our feathered, fairy-like friends. This handblown ruby hummingbird feeder draws them up close with its dazzling charm. Includes easy sugar/water instructions.

Alternatives to traditional notions of birdfeeding and garden products

Feeder measures 4.5 inches in diameter

The Dew Drop hummingbird feeder not only attracts hummingbirds to your garden, but also is a beautiful work of art. Each piece is carefully handblown in vibrant colors and possesses the individual artisanship of its creator. Even when hummingbirds are not feeding, the Dew Drop adds beauty and color to your outdoor environment.

Creating a Hummingbird Oasis

Dew Drop hummingbird feeders are designed to hang gracefully from the supplied hook. We suggest creating a "hummingbird oasis," in which to hang the Dew Drop feeder. This means planting perennial and annual flowers which attract hummingbirds near your Dew Drop. Plants known to attract hummers include tubular nectar flowers like honeysuckles, salvia, larkspur, trumpet vine, petunias, nasturtiums, penstemons, fuchsias, and lilacs. Other favorites include bee balm, columbine, Indian paintbrush, and monkey flower. It is well known that hummingbirds are attracted to red flowers, but they also visit all other colors.

Hummingbird Hints

  •  Never use honey or artificial sweeteners. We do not recommend using red dyes.
  • Clean feeder regularly with hot water to prevent fermentation and mold - every 3 days in hot weather, every 7 days in cool weather. Hummingbirds will reject "old" solution.
  • Do not allow solution to freeze in feeder. Store inside during winter.


Important Information

Directions
  1. Hold hummingbird feeder over sink. (Careful: Slippery When Wet!)
  2. Loosen stopper by jiggling tube back and forth. Remove stopper.
  3. Rinse feeder with hot water.
  4. Fill feeder FULL with sugar solution.**
  5. Press stopper firmly in feeder. Invert in one quick motion.
  6. Hang feeder in shade or partial shade.

Feeder will drip occasionally, especially on hot days or in direct sunlight - it is unavoidable with a tube feeder. To minimize drip, try the following:

  • Always fill feeder full & invert quickly to avoid air entering the feeder.
  • Only hang your feeder in shade or partial shade. The cooler the feeder, the less likely it is to drip.
  • Make sure to keep feeder very clean by regularly cleaning with hot water. Do not use soap as its residue may cause your feeder to drip.

**Sugar Solution: Combine 1 part white sugar to 4 parts water. Bring to slow boil for 2 minutes. Cool before pouring in feeder. Excess may be stored in the refrigerator.

It does make an attractive addition to the porch, however.
D. Rosenberg
The one catch I wasn't pleased with is that the tip has a slow drip...which stains any wood deck, and attracts ants to the sugar water.

The hummingbird continually leaks - doesn't matter if it is hot or cold out . . .

This hummingbird feeder is beautiful and as soon as I filled it and set it out, I had visitors wanting to feed! The one catch I wasn't pleased with is that the tip has a slow drip...which stains any wood deck, and attracts ants to the sugar water.

This feeder was given to me as a gift, but it has been a rather frustrating one. Despite following the directions to fill it entirely full to create a vacuum, the contents of the feeder poured out onto my patio. It may be good looking, but if you want to save yourself a hassle, I suggested buying the more tried and true feeders.

I don't usually write reviews; but this product is so bad I felt I had too. My hummingbirds do not like this feeder at all. And as stated in the previous review it feeds ants better. Don't put in a garden as the feed leaks out and kills your plants!!! Very very very bad product.

I got an identical looking feeder locally; trapped air cannot escape so air bubbles stay trapped in the feeding tube. The solution, therefore, won't drain for hummingbirds easily, but you can shake some out (providing food for local ants).
It does make an attractive addition to the porch, however.

I received this item as a gift but it's hanging empty in my house because all the sugar water leaked out when it was hanging outside. It's beautiful and the hummers loved it the short time it was available but it emptied itself in one day all over my porch!

I bought two of these and they look so beautiful in my garden, but they drip like sieves. I called the company and ordered new stoppers - they didn't help. I've had to shelve them.
