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: 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 manufacturer commented on the review below
Size: 6.71W x 6.63D ins.
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.

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 !!!!

We've seen Hummingbirds around our backyard, but never thought to put up a feeder. While I was looking for something else, this feeder was displayed...

The pros:
+ Reasonably priced & free shipping was included.
+ Small 8oz size, with a nice shape... easier to hold on to!
+ Hardened glass
+ Removable perch.
+ Hanging wire is included.
+ Small size = easier cleaning & fresher nectar.
+ We haven't noticed any nectar dipping out of the feeder.

The cons:
- The attachment screw for the removable perch is steel, I upgraded ours to stainless steel.
- The first feeder had to be returned, as one of the yellow bee guards was missing. The Amazon return process was very easy & I had the replacement within 2 days. Now that's customer service!

▪ Our homemade nectar:
To make a batch of homemade nectar, we add 1/4 cup of regular sugar to 1 cup of boiling water. We use a 2 cup measuring cup, filtered tap water & 3 minutes in our microwave gets the water to a fast boil. Pour in the 1/4 cup of sugar, stir & let it cool. This is the exact amount needed to fill the 8oz feeder. We decided not to color the nectar, as most say it's not necessary.

▪ Our cleaning routine:
The cleaning is very easy & should be done at each refilling. While the freshly made nectar is cooling, we prewarm, then fill the glass bottle with boiling hot water & let it sit. No need to scrubing the inside of the bottle. Next we pull off the bee guards & set them in the sink to be cleaned by pouring boiling hot water on & thru them. The last item to clean is the base & perch. You guessed it, more boiling hot water is used to flush everything clean. No need to pull anything apart, the boiling hot water will get to all the nooks & crannies.
