    functional, but comes with a couple problems It took the hummingbirds a little while to want to try this feeder, but now that they have, they are fine with it and are quite willing to perch on it and pose for the camera. It seems to be more leak-proof than some other feeders I have since the portals are on the top of the (bowl?) instead of on the side like many other feeders. It’s very easy to clean since it has such a wide mouth, and you can get your hand in there to scrub away all the sliminess of old solution. I’ve had a problem with other bottle feeders that have such a small opening you can never get in there to clean. And I’m very excited that there are 10 portals on the feeder, as this means I can feed many rufous hummingbirds at the same time when they migrate through town.I do have 3 problems with this particular feeder:A) The hornets seem to really like it. The portals are large enough that they can really get in there to feed themselves, and then they charge away any hummingbirds that try to get near enough for a drink. The larger portals are a huge advantage for someone who has orioles around though, and wants the orioles to be able to get a drink. I do not get orioles, I just know of people who do get them and are happy to see them drink from this particular hummingbird feeder.B)I don’t care for the hook at the top of the feeder. It seems very unstable. I’m just waiting for a heavy wind to blow this feeder off my balcony into my downstairs neighbors’ patio. I’m also having a problem finding anything to substitute for the hook that will fit in the opening at the top.C) I’m not quite sure what to make of my 3rd problem with the feeder. It was a little while before I noticed hummingbirds were using the feeder, yet the nectar in it was disappearing very fast. Where was it all going if the birds weren’t drinking it? I’ve never had the solution in a feeder disappear so fast before. I couldn’t find any spills underneath the feeder, so that wasn’t the problem. So it was probably either one of two things going on. Either the hornets were having a field day drinking it all, or else there was a problem with the nectar evaporating very quickly. Maybe due to the heat?

    Design flaw I have this feeder, and in general it is a good feeder. But and this is a huge problem, there is a design flaw that can actually catch a hummers wing. The bracket that secures the resivor together, and the round perch are constructed leaving a gap between the bracket and perch just wide enough to catch a wing. I had it happen twice. First time I saw it happen and the bird managed to free itself. Second time I found a semi consious bird trapped. I was able to revive the bird and he recovered, but it could easily been fatal. I taped over the gaps, being careful to cover all the adhesive and have not had any more problems. It is difficult to untape to clean and then retape, so I am in the process of getting rid of these feeders. If you have this feeder consider tape over the gap, it is tiny between the perch and the bracket on all four brackets. You might think it is too small to do any harm, but it can.

    The Best Hummingbird Feeder Ever! I chose this hummingbird feeder because it looked alot easier to clean than the regular one’s you see everywhere. After I used it for about a month, I decided to buy more and even purchase a few for gifts. This feeder is so simple to clean. No snap on flowers or skinny little bottles that keep you from gettting into any nooks and crannies. This is a great product and the hummingbirds love it. I swear that they even get along better because there is more room for them to stand on the outer ledge. This will be the only kind of humingbird feeder I buy from now on. Fair price, too.
