The thing is messy... The moat is unnecessary (should be separate) and the 2 piece bottom means spills while handling or jostling. The wide mouth might be easier to clean, but old version was fine.
I just dropped it to one star after cleaning out two of the four I bought. I'd like to think I got a bad molding, but all are the same....crappy seams in the plastic, impossible to clean crevices, sloppy moat, etc. I'm writing now as I pulled my remaining unused (cuz they suck) feeders out to load up for peak season. It occurred to me the volume was not the same as my old feeders.... Sure enought, old feeders were 900 mL, these are 800mL. Not a huge deal, but (a) mis-advertised, and (b), barely big enough already; I load a gallon a day!
But my real issue is the difficulty to clean. C'mon, it's 2015, you can get flawless injection molding. But someone saved 5 cents to get this crap that I have to soak in chromerge over night. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr. At least picture finally updated.
I need to figure out how to make my own line of products! These could be so much better!
It replaces a $3 feeder from Dollar General which worked but leaked. That could be viewed as a good thing as I live in an area that gets rather hot. So the fact that it dripped, dripped, dripped required me to prepare new nectar every three days. Gotta tell you, that's a major pain in the butt.
Why? Because like you must take responsibility for any dog or cat you accept into your home, once you start trying to attract hummers to your yard you are obligated to keep feeding them.
So, anyhow. This thing costs in the range of 4 to 5 times as much as the Dollar General special - not that it did not do the job. But wow. This thing has been up and visited many times over the past week and a half. It still has at least a cup of home-made nectar in it. It leaks not a drop.
It has gotten to the point where I need to take it down and scrub it and put new nectar in it.
The other really cool thing about it is that there is a perch for the hummers around its entire circumfrence. The little guys work so hard. It's nice to see them take a break as they feed. I also believe this feature attracts more hummers once they realize it gives them a spot to relax.
So. I hesitated a couple years before I pulled the trigger on this purchase. I suggest you do not. Get the darn thing and enjoy a bevy of hummingbirds in your yard almost instantly.
The hummers preferred this one BY FAR.
Perky-Pet has made improvements since then and this one is even better. This new updated one is easier to clean and easier to fill and the jar is still made of good glass for durability. We have had tens of thousands of birds come to our yard. After all these years we are still very happy with this product.
It is just the right size to keep the food fresh & clean and yet not have to fill it as frequently. During most of the year we have up to 4 of these outside our living room window and have had up to 50 birds around them at one time. We have to buy bulk sugar at Costco to keep up with the demand. We have slowed down to one feeder right now in the cold winter months as most of the hummers have migrated south but we still have dozens of hardy ones that winter over here near our Monterey Bay location.
Don't use the store bought sugar mixes. They are expensive and are not as well liked as a simple sugar solution.
Make the ratio - one cup of sugar to two cups of water and bring it to a boil and then cool it below 105F.
That is not a saturated solution but the birds get well hydrated and happily get the energy too.
Don't leave food out for more than 3 days in warm weather and clean the feeders well each time.
Sterilize them every couple of weeks with a mild chlorine solution.
