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.
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.
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.
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.
Only trouble we have had is with bees and a neighbor said to spray the feeders with Pam spray. Once we did that we had no other trouble with beesPublished 6 days ago by Albert J. Southard
I thought this was the model with the wide mouth opening that is so easy to clean. Unfortunately it is not. This is the skinny neck version that is impossible to clean. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Alx408
I like this feeder although I'm not sure that hummingbirds like to share a feeder. My only problem with this feeder is how you fill it. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Roadtripper66
The feeder came with one missing yellow cap for the feeder. Rather small for the price as well.Published 13 days ago by Christine L. Rice
