Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ken50h Want hummingbirds? This is the feeder you want!
Bought one of these at our local HD. Bought two more after I saw what a hit they were with our Ruby Throats. Now our neighbor across the street has one. By far the favorite feeder for our hummer population. We have 6 hummingbird feeders. Three of them are this feeder and they are the favorites by far. We actually hung 2 of ours up under the eaves on cup hooks (didn't need the little hanging basket hook for these). The third one I used the little hanging basket/planter hook, but stuck the hook in a tiki torch holder and hung the feeder from it that way. They are a way good bargain and I theorize that they are such a hit because the hummers have to hover at them like they would if they were hovering to sip nectar from a trumpet vine or perhaps flowers down in Costa Rica and the other spots they spend winter in usually. Anyhow, but this little inexpensive feeder. You will find it is like a hummingbird magnet.

This item came quickly and in good shape. The product is exactly as expected. I believe that I now have 40 of these from Home Depot and I hope they continue to make them and keep the price and quality the same. My hummingbirds love them. The feeders also clean easily. Will see you again next spring for another purchase.

I have hummingbird feeders of all types, but this particular feeder is the little birds' favorite by far. Home Depot has the best price for this feeder online, and I've seen the local HD store carry a two set at more price. Hummingbirds love the cylindrical feeder that basically pour out the nectar easily when they feed from the port. Because of this, you will need to keep the feeding port clean of the inevitable black mold build-up, or the nectar will slowly drip out attracting bugs. When the port hole is clean, it does not leak at all (not even one of my 7). Don't use dish soap since the soap film and sheeting chemicals can cause the nectar to drip; Use apple cider vinegar or 9/1 part bleach to disinfect a few times a month. I use an end of a Q-tip (with most cotton removed) to clean the port very easily with one push/spin; Don't spend your money buying the overpriced port brushes! I've got various Hummzinger feeder models and other more attractive "Red" feeders, but these empty and are defended for the most by the birds. I have also bought a heavy gauge plastic-coated wire and made little perches for the feeders. I've just looped a small piece of wire and bent the ends into the circular groove at the bottom of the feeder, and then secured the perch using a thinner coated wire hung from the port. Just reinforced tension, no glue - please see my uploaded pictures. I've used the yellow coated wire because I happened to have it around, but I recommend that you use another color since yellow attracts bees/wasps. In fact, another good thing about this feeder is that the flower port is not yellow, it's white, less likely to attract wasps. I'd probably take out a half star because the nectar IS accessible by wasps and I have to constantly shoo them away or swat them to death when they try to attack my little flying gems, but the birds absolutely love em so I'm forced to keep the rating at 5 stars.
