The Hummzinger feeders are a breeze to fill, hang, and clean; no bottle brush necessary! And the EASY recipe for the best hummingbird nectar is printed on the under-side of the feeder. How convenient is that? In addition, they have perches for the hummers to rest on while feeding, so that they don't burn up all the calories they're trying to consume while hovering around the feeder.
I love the brass hanging rod; it prevents the feeder from tilting and dripping when the birds all sit on one side of it. These are the ONLY feeders I've ever had where the hummers will perch and feed together in groups. I frequently see 3 to 6 birds on my feeders at once since I started using using the Hummzingers; this never happened even with the largest of the other feeders I've tried. Could be coincidental, but...
The feeder can either be hung from its included hook or mounted on a garden stake/post. When hanging, these feeders are very stable in the wind compared to others, so they don't drip. And the ant moat really does keep ants out of the nectar when the feeder is hanging! (I don't think it would help as much if the feeder was mounted on a post.)
Best of all, contrary to what some others have written, the hummingbirds around here (the San Francisco Bay area) seem to LOVE these feeders. I'm purchasing several as gifts.
This year I had enough!
After a little online research and reading other reviews of the Hummzinger Ultra product I decided to try it out.
I put up the Hummzinger and the hummingbirds figured it out within hours (even with the little rubber tip guards installed). I watched day after day as number of yellow jackets around the Hummzinger decreased. After a week there were ZERO yellow jackets hanging around!
If you have yellow jacket issues you must get this feeder!
I've also noticed that the hummers will even sit on this feeder every so often, where as on my old feeders they fed and flew away. Another unexpected benefit has been the Hummzinger feeder has been much easier to clean than my old feeders.
I'm buying a second Hummzinger in the winter to replace my other feeder - so I'll be ready for the spring!
Initially I had some concerns that the feeder would need to be almost completely full in order for the hummers to be able to extract any nectar (the feeder is rather deep). Turns out the little guys have pretty long tongues, so they can reach far into the feeder, even when it is close to being empty.
Can't beat the lifetime guarantee.
My only gripe is that small ants can still get inside even with the nectar guard tips in place. In my case, the ants are pretty bad, even more so than with my last feeder which had basically no protection at all.
I emailed Aspects to ask if this feeder contains BPA because it was not clear that it did not. They replied that Aspects does use BPA in this and all their other polycarbonate feeders. They also explicitly stated that they have no current intent to make a BPA-free feeder. Let's encourage them to change that stance!
I think it goes without saying that we should not be feeding our beautiful wildlife chemicals that harm them if we care about them as much as we like to think we do. Even if one isn't concerned about the first generation of hummingbirds, consider the likely possibility that the chemicals are also transferred to offspring during gestation and may accumulate through generations. Furthermore, consider the food chain and the general fact that we're putting these chemicals out in our environment.
Nalgene and other companies have removed BPA from their plastics and still make very strong and aesthetic water bottles without it. This feeder has many great properties, but it's not the only feeder with them; personally I will buy alternatives (of which there are many) until Aspects decides to make a BPA-free hummingbird feeder to purchase one of theirs. I would love to see them do so.
