One of the most popular feeders on the market, the Perky-Pet Pinch-Waist glass feeder showcases the fascinating behavior and beauty of nectar-loving hummingbirds. The feeder features a bright red base with yellow bee guards, helping it attract hummingbirds while keeping bees away. The traditional bottom-fill feeder is also large enough for several hummingbirds at once, with four feeding ports and a removable four-way perch.

Bee guards
The hummingbird feeder includes yellow guards to keep bees out.

Nectar is stored in the clear, shatterproof glass reservoir, which makes it easy to monitor nectar levels (the reservoir stores up to 8 ounces total). The reservoir also unscrews easily from the feeder base for quick cleaning and filling. For best results, clean the hummingbird feeder with a mild soap and water solution at least twice a week, more often in very warm climates or seasons.

Migration maps
Online maps are available to help you track hummingbirds' migration patterns.

Attracting Hummingbirds

The feeder is easy to mount thanks to the included hanger, which suspends from nearly any branch or hook. To attract more hummingbirds, users should locate the feeder away from sun and wind. Sun may cause the nectar mixture to turn bad, while wind may swing the feeder around, causing the mixture to spill. Tying a red ribbon on the feeder wire or pole may also help hummingbirds find the feeder, as will adding a water source, such as a birdbath or bird waterer.

Hummingbird Season

Start adding nectar to your feeder in early spring. Hummingbirds typically begin their journey north around March or April, as the warm weather begins. They remain in the region throughout the summer months, and begin to migrate back south once the flowers cease blooming and insects are scarce. By late September, almost all hummers have moved on to warmer climates for the winter. Online migration maps are a great way to track when the hummingbirds will be arriving in your area.

Size Name: 6.71W x 6.63D ins.
I love this feeder and so do the hummingbirds! Last year I had a different type (plastic bottle and without perches) and only had the occasional hummingbird. This year I bought one of the Perky Pet Pinch Waist feeders and I had a hummingbird in less than 20 minutes, within a week I bought two more to keep up with demand. I like the design of the feeder - the "pinched waist" gives it a little bit of character, and the size is large enough to be practical without being invasive. The three feeders are suspended by plant hooks under the eaves on the deck, which places them very close to the house. I have 10 "regulars" and several "visitors" that feed from dawn to twilight every day. I have to fill the feeders every morning - because they are empty and the little buggers have taken to scolding me when I'm not up early enough for their breakfast! I make half a gallon of nectar (4 parts water to 1 part sugar, brought to a low boil to extend freshness, per the wild bird experts) twice a week - yes that's a full gallon. I thought about getting larger capacity feeders, but this way I can do a hot water rinse of the bottle and reservoir every day and a thorough cleaning weekly. Although ants and hornets are a problem in our area, so far they haven't discovered the hummingbird feeders.

When I have company they are absolutely fascinated by the "show" they get from these cheeky little birds. They bicker (loudly), display, duel and chest bump each other to establish territory (the hummingbirds, not my guests). Some of them will share willingly with others and sit side-by-side at the feeder; some don't want any other hummers - at any of the feeders - while they are feeding. Most will perch, some will not.

The fact that this is one of the most popular hummingbird feeders on the market is mostly due to its wide availability, cheap price, and gaudy styling rather than its quality. I used these feeders for years before discovering better designs, and I came to hate them. The first thing I noticed was that they're hard to clean, with too many small parts and hard-to-reach tubes and crevices. It takes way too long to take the feeder apart, get all the parts clean, and reassemble it.

The next thing that became apparent is that the "bee guards" really don't do a very good job. Honeybees and wasps can't reach the solution through intact guards, but some long-tongued bumblebees can, and tiny bees just crawl right through the guards (and often right into the bottle!). They're also bright yellow, the same color as many bee-pollinated flowers (what was the manufacturer thinking?). The insects really swarm around when the solution oozes out, as it's prone to do on warm days (particularly if you refill the bottle with refrigerated solution).

It didn't take long to discover that this feeder is also not very durable. The plastic parts don't hold up to exposure to sunlight, becoming brittle and loose over time (more quickly in sunny or high-elevation areas, where intense UV light seems to deteriorate the plastic more quickly). The hardened glass bottle is actually the most durable part of this feeder, while the bee guards are the first parts to break down. The size is okay, though if you've only got one or two hummingbirds visiting you won't want to fill the feeder completely.

The best hummingbird feeders cost about twice as much as this model, but they will last at least 10 times as long.

We have designed the parts on the feeder to be removable for easy cleaning and so that they can easily be replaced if they happen to get lost or broken over time. We are sorry to hear that you are not happy with the feeder.

Rest assured that the Perky Pet® Instant Nectar does not contain any chemicals or harmful ingredients. The red dye that is used is food grade and USDA approved. We are in the business of helping people enjoy the hobby of feeding birds would not want to harm them in any way.

Just bought the second feeder. Yes, it does require some cleaning, but I now have a fresh one ready to hang while I wash the first feeder. Inexpensive and the birds are lapping up my homemade nectar-no red dye !!!!

This has been, by far, my most used feeder for over 20 years. Unlike many of the Perky Pet feeders, the base opens up, and it can be visually, manually cleaned. I use a hummingbird feeder sponge mop or brush on the bottle, and a regular dishwashing sponge mop for glasses, a toothbrush, a finger, and either a Q-tip or hummingbird portal brush for cleaning the parts of the base. Moldy beeguards get soaked in 10% Chlorox. This, plus the inverted glass bottle design and the small reservoir base, keeps the solution clear for extended periods, with little wastage. It's easy to tell when the solution is gone or cloudy, and I mix it up fresh, without dye, shaken inside the bottle with cold tap water and ready to be hung. Hummingbirds definitely like the perches, and I've never seen or heard of a hummer being injured on it. I haven't had significant problems with bees, wasps, or house finches. Migrating orioles can get a bit of nectar from underneath the beeguards, and, when I see them, I remove a few beeguards to try to keep them around. I use water-filled ant moats, shorten the tethers, and place them under the eaves outside windows to maximize viewing and to limit insects, sun, wind movement, and spillage. This size is good for small numbers of hummers, but I try out other and larger feeders during peak migration from late August to late September. I have 7 of these, and use all of them during the peak fall migration, scattered about the house to try to decrease jousting. Replacement parts are available.
