Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. What criteria should I use when selecting a hummingbird feeder?

A. Make sure it is one that will be easy to clean and fill, especially since you will need to clean the feeder every few days. If you are worried about bees and wasps or ants invading the feeder, purchase a hummingbird feeder with bee guards.

Q. How do I clean my hummingbird feeders?

A. Hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned every 1-2 weeks. Use hot water and a bottle brush, along with mild soap; be sure to rinse thoroughly.

The Perky-Pet cleaning mop is specifically designed for the purpose of cleaning hummingbird feeders, and is very convenient to use. This cleaning mop can also be used on seed feeders and oriole feeders for those small, tight spaces that are difficult to reach.

Q. What is the importance of providing water for hummingbirds?

A. Hummingbirds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need nectar. Hummingbirds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide hummingbirds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for hummingbirds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy.

    Who would have thought Hummingbirds like blue! My wife thought I was crazy ordering a blue hummer feeder. But after it arrive and she saw the quality and detail of the Cobalt Blue Antique Bottle Feeder, she didn’t care if the hummers liked it, she liked it. We currently have (3) hummer feeders in our backyard (large backyard) and the hummers love the cobalt blue feeder. They preferred it over the other feeders so we moved it to the patio area for better viewing.We couldn’t be more pleased.

    Beautiful, old-fashioned look, with sturdy craftsmanship! I received my Perky Pet hummingbird feeder today, and am really looking forward to enjoying the sight of tiny, jewel-toned, rapid flyers during hummingbird season.This is my second Perky Pet birdfeeder, and I think it’s safe to say that they do a great job of tying function and beauty together with their products. As I’m a big fan of cobalt blue glass, an artist, and a bit of a perfectionist, I can be pretty hypercritical of things at times, but this feeder, and the beautiful, rich blue of the antique-style bottle it’s equipped with, more than satisfies me. It’s easy enough to unscrew the base of the feeder from the bottle, fill it, and hang it outside from the small built-in metal hook that easily caught on to the hooks I have hanging from my porch overhang.The bottle is made of a thick glass in a beautiful cobalt blue that, in the light, skews just the slightest bit to a very, very deep aqua. This glass IS cobalt blue, but leans towards a warmer blue, rather than a near-violet shade. The base is crafted of plastic, with a thin metal cap that the “flower” openings the birds will feed from, are attached to. The plastic base is thick enough to look as if it will hold up well over time, especially with the protection of the metal flower disc on the top to combat the effects of direct sunlight. The bottle’s mouth is a bit on the narrow side, but not so much that it’ll be terribly difficult to clean and fill it on a regular basis.The styling of the feeder IS pleasantly antique, reminding me of the 20s era. The bottle is stamped glass, with subtle, raised designs that enhance it just a bit, without being distracting or overpowering. The color, while – obviously – not red, is also bright enough that I’m hoping it will effectively attract lots of birds. The only qualm I have with it is that I wish it hung lower from my roof overhang than it does, but what I’ve read indicates hummingbirds tend to fly skyward, so perhaps the short hanging distance is intentional. It may also help with the stability of the feeder, so perhaps I’m worrying needlessly over this minor point…Since I’m a Foodie, and I enjoy cooking and baking (and I’m a very frugal person, overall), I had no issues making the nectar myself from two simple ingredients that just about everyone is likely to have on-hand: sugar, and water. All of the nectar recipes that I’ve encountered online follow the same formula: 4 parts water to 1 part sugar. One recipe I read suggested just heating the water/sugar mixture on the stove until the sugar is fully dissolved, while a Virginia State site for hummingbirds suggested fully boiling the nectar. I erred on the side of caution, and just gently heated mine (as the Ask dot com website said boiling it can skew the 4-to-1 ratio, which is very important for the birds, I thought it was safer this way). Let the nectar cool completely (so that it doesn’t ferment as quickly), then fill your feeder. Be sure to change the nectar out weekly, if not more often, as the nectar becomes contaminated as soon as the first bird begins feeding from it. The use of honey and/or molasses in the making of your nectar is also strongly discouraged, as they can promote the growth of a mold that is fatal to hummingbirds.I remember being completely enchanted by the hummingbirds I grew up watching during my childhood in the Caribbean, so I can’t wait to spend some time this summer watching them feed, and escape for a bit into the beauty of nature. The feeder is pretty enough that it will only add to the enjoyment I anticipate in watching a few new feathered friends join my porch “garden”!
