How to pick a hummingbird feeder, things to be aware of when purchasing a hummingbird feeder, this can make things much easier for you. And safer for the birds too as they feed and go to nest. Here I go through hummingbird feeders thoughts and ideas and issues and concerns and tips on hummingbird feeders, so you can decide which will work for you, going over prices, plastic or glass, cleaning problems, bees, hummingbird stands, hummingbirds perches, hangers, flowers, easy cleaning, and so much more. AND also the Oriole birds, the males, are back getting ready to nest and the females just showed up here too.
Here is the aff. link to the ones I purchased from there, I bought 6 (which lowers the price), but this is for 1 feeder here: www.ebay.com/itm/First-Nature-10-Port-HummingBird-Feeder-3051-16-oz/382956338929?hash=item5929f9fef1:g:o4QAAOSw8WVf1WKH&mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&siteid=0&campid=5338267736&customid=&toolid=10001&mkevt=1

  • Thank you so much for all the ideas you're sharing. Ordered 2 solar fountains and preparing to build a ball out of cement. In one of your videos I saw a feeder looked like a muffin/cupcake, did you make it as well? Would love to see how to do one.

  • Good suggestions. We love our visitors. One time we got an “angry bird” hummer that guarded the feeder. Had to get another and place it out of sight. Fun watching them. They can be very bold if they feel safe (get extra close to you).

  • The hummingbird feeders here are "guarded" by 1 bird and they try to run off any other hummingbirds that are trying to feed. Ruby Throated hummingbirds are what we have here in Georgia

  • It is not healthy to feed humming birds sugar water! Lets stop killing our birds. They get nectar from flowers period. People feeding birds from suet block are killing the birds with lard that is making seeds stick to block and the bird pecks it off and some is still on seeds.

  • No to the mascara brush, feeders with bee guards are best (that's the round piece with the grid pattern), unless you enjoy cleaning out bees and ants.

  • One year, I was late in getting my Feeder Up. A humming bird came by as I was out on my deck, flew to the bracket the feeder used to be on, flew over to me, chortled, then flew back to the bracket, chortled again, and then came back and hovered in front of my face chortling some more. I got the message, went to the store, got some sugar and set the feeder up.

  • I love the beautiful decorative hummingbird feeders and always want to buy them, but then I remember how much of a pain some are and just buy the cheap ones. We've also had better luck with the cheap ones when it comes to leaks too. We start with a couple small ones at the first sighting of a hummingbird and put the big guys out along with the small ones once we are going through the small ones fast. We really need more out these past few summers, but it is too much maintenance for us. We have flowers around front as well that they love so plenty of food to go around.

  • If I put up feeders will that keep the hummingbirds from going to my hummingbird friendly plants?

  • In winter its 3 to 1 And in summer we do 4 to 1, to encourage the birds to eat from flowers. After the first clutch of babies has been raised we take them down, to encourage the birds to head north to Alaska. Please remember that IF you have feeders up after July you MUST continue to fill it all winter. The birds will stay behind rather than migrate south, and if you stop feeding them they will begin to die after flowers are all died off. We fill our feeders everyday. Sunset and sunrise are the most active times. When the feeders are empty they will let you know...they usually dive bomb me or fly in my face 2 inches off my nose and go between me and the feeder many times, like saying "look over here! The feeder is empty and I am starving to death! " I have a male that has been with me for 4 years now. I call him poncho via as he is always at war protecting his feeders. ( he has a very distinct scar from being caught by my cat. Peanut brought him inside in his mouth. I had to feed poncho with an eye dropper and keep him warm for 2 days before he was ready to go back outside. He shows off that he isn't afraid of me or peanut. Turns his back on peanut all the time. Like saying to the other birds, "see, I'm not afraid, the human has mastered the cat and I have mastered the human. " Thank you for your video.

    • If you have a way to watch them up close you can see them filling their flying bladder with liquid to get through the night....it is located behind their head, between their shoulders/ where the wings are attached and is visible as a bump or a hunched back. If the hummingbird didn't have that flight bladder they wouldn't have the weight they need to maintain balance over long flights on windy days or be able to survive the long, dark, cold nights. I am not sure just how often it is exactly, but I know they must drink every few minutes to maintain body heat and strength. These are my spirit animal

  • I put the plastic part in the dishwasher and keep about three per feeder on hand to swap out. To clean the glass I use a little vinegar or bleach, a little water and a piece of small chain. Cover the opening with one hand and shake the daylights out of it, the chain abrades off the mold and scum.

  • I make my mix 4 water to 1 sugar and boil the mix, This process makes the mix thicker and prevents mold. Constant cleaning, is a must, about an hour a day i sit by the feeders and they come and land on you and sometimes they talk to you Last year 375 pounds of sugar. Each batch = 32 cups of water and 8 cups of Sugar Great fun interacting.

  • One brand I would discourage people from buying is " The World's best hummingbird feeder" from Poteet Texas. The bottles are nice, but the plastic part of the feeder break easily, and don't seal to keep out bees and flies. I've tried to get replacements , but they don't answer back, so I wouldn't recommend them. I've had deer come to the hummingbird feeder out of curiosity.

  • Fire ants _can_ cross water! For them, it's best to use a little rubbing alcohol & baby powder. That's too slippery for them. My friend is an entomologist that actually keeps ants. Those girls are wonderful when controlled. 😂🤗🇨🇦

  • If a feeder is deep enough, then bees and wasps won’t come because they can’t reach the sugar water, but the hummingbirds can. Deep hummingbird feeder (Wild Wings mason jar feeder, Mosaic Birds basic feeder, Dieguez hummingbird feeder, and the HummZinger are all fairly good examples) and an ant moat will solve all your feeder’s insect problems!

    • If you go to the store you will see there are some without the yellow plastic flowers, but if you have one and you think the bees are bothering it, you can always get non-toxic paint in red from the craft store and just paint the outside of the flowers.

  • Good info. I've been feeding hummingbirds in Los Angeles for five years. I like the First Nature 32 ounce feeders (about $8). They have the pop on yellow flowers but I've removed them because they got mold underneath. The hummers don't care. I've got two new ones with the flowers. Even during migration when total strangers show up they don't care. To clean them out, I usually just rinse the base parts with hot water, might rinse out the clear reservoir. If I even think there's any mold growing, smell? I have a container of vinegar. I dip a dish washing in the vinegar, give everything a quick once over, rinse - clean, sterile. I still cook up my nectar. In a 5 quart pot: 3 quarts of water, 4.5 quarts of sugar, bring it to a boil. Wait you say 3+4.5 - 7 quarts. Nope it fits, there's lot of space inside and between the glucose molecules for the tiny water molecules. Takes 26 minutes to boil on my gas stove. I put this in to quart containers. On my 32 ounce feeder reservoirs I've drawn a line at 8 ounces. Fill that up with the nectar base, then to the top with filtered water. If you're going away, take the feeders down rather than let them sit there empty. When you get back and set out fresh feeders hummers flying by will immediately notice and zoom in to feed. I've got a hive of (formerly) killer bees, and I get orioles visiting the feeders - neither can get in. When I used to read every day on my porch about once every hour or so a hummer will hover right next to me. And then if I walk anywhere in my neighborhood they'll swoop into buzz me. When I'm not out there so much they don't get as close. And even with the feeders full, they'll still canvas the flowers.

  • There are lots of resources out there that explain how dish soap is not effective for killing several kinds of mold that tend to grow in sugar water. Also an extremely small amount of dish soap can be harmful to hummingbirds. It can even kill them. I'm amazed that you are not aware of this.

  • I wonder if we have hummingbirds in northeastern Texas. I would love to have hummingbirds come by and visit my garden, I have a Japanese maple tree in a nice shady spot where I can hang the feeder and it’s right outside my bedroom window. I live in Texoma, Grayson County, which is a bird sanctuary county. Right now I have attracted a flock of beautiful red cardinals that sing such sweet songs, but I would love to have even more birds come by.

  • Get the wider ones as they are easier to clean. I learned the hard way, but I did invest in a baby bottle brush for my one feeder to get those hard to reach places. And PLEASE. people, remember to keep them clean!! Dirty feeders can KILL them!! Mixture to feed is easy; 1 cup of white granulated sugar & 1 cup of water. Do not used the store bought or dyed mixes!!

  • My favorite is Best-1 glass hummingbird feeders. They clean great with 3 pieces and keep the bees out. Does need an ant moat.
