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.
- 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.
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
- Hold hummingbird feeder over sink. (Careful: Slippery When Wet!)
- Loosen stopper by jiggling tube back and forth. Remove stopper.
- Rinse feeder with hot water.
- Fill feeder FULL with sugar solution.**
- Press stopper firmly in feeder. Invert in one quick motion.
- 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.

I loved the color, but humming birds did not use it because there was no perch, they flutter around it but did not drink from it, I was disappointed it was so prettyPublished 1 month ago by elizabeth francey
Beautiful, but be mindful of leakage if stopper not in all the way and too much air inside bottle.Published 9 months ago by MH
Beautiful, but not functional - leaks A LOT - no matter what we try to do to adjust it! Have already taken it out of service & definitely regret buying it.Published on August 7, 2014 by Cathy Polen
This looked much different in reality than it did from the picture. The quality of the item is good, but the glass was clear with a red line.Published on December 11, 2013 by Sarah Dunne
Hummingbirds seem to enjoy. Ended up buying another one which the hummingbirds can sit and drink and they seem happier with that one.Published on August 23, 2013 by Betty J. Walker
We love this feeder for its beauty and the way if fits in the landscape among all the green things in our garden. But it took the birds a little while to take to it. Read morePublished on July 19, 2012 by Red Balloons
I read the reviews about leaking, but purchased it anyway... I saw that if you fill it completely full and quickly flip it you will have no issues. Baloney! Read morePublished on June 5, 2012 by h wurtinger
Contrary to most of these reviews, the feeder does not leak, drip etc. Physics People (a rubber seal) insures its functionality. Read morePublished on May 23, 2012 by ap
The feeder is beautiful and doesn't drip in my experience, but the hummingbirds much prefer the plastic one with the perches and the large red flowers that hangs nearby.Published on June 3, 2010 by blueheron
