Songbird Essentials Hummingbird Feeder Collection
I have 2 of these and yes they are great for filling nectar, but during the warmer temperatures when the bees/wasps/ants are out in full force , it 's not great. Even with having the bee guards it doesn't keep them away. Also when the feeders are busy with bees it keeps the hummers away. So I use the bottle type here, for winter use only and the flat dish style for the summer months.
Great product! Easy to clean and hang. The hummingbirds like the perch and the color. Will be ordering more for the spring.
I own 5 of these feeders (2 were purchased about 5 yrs. ago. I added another 3 about 1 1/2 yrs. ago.) They work as well, now, as the day they were purchased. The hummingbirds love this feeder. I ordered two more, a month ago, as a Christmas gift for a dear friend. She said she'd start feeding the hummers when she could find feeders like mine. They absolutely do not leak, hold 3/4 cup of hummer syrup (homemade). We live in Oregon and I feed year-round. The Schrodt Ruby feeder is the only feeder I will use.
Gets air locked and I must manually tilt it a bit to let air escape or bottom empties and yet top has plenty. Weird. Otherwise I love the look and amount it holds.
Seems well made. Next time I will purchase a more vertical feeder so that it is less easy to tip out some of the liquid while hanging it up.
It's a great Humming bird feeder,easy to maintain,just the right size for us.
Love the ease of cleaning and filling this humming bird feeder. Also I was impressed with your customer service. Wonderful people to deal with. Thank you for a happy experience!!!
