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
Here is the aff. link to the set I purchase of 6, great feeders, easy to clean and last a long time: www.ebay.com/itm/6-Pack-First-Nature-10-Port-HummingBird-Feeder-3051-16-oz/382956338864?hash=item5929f9feb0:g:xS4AAOSwx9xc3QRd&mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&siteid=0&campid=5338267736&customid=&toolid=10001&mkevt=1
Here in an aff. link of the ones that are my favorite and I have purchased from them, this is for 4 feeders: www.ebay.com/itm/4-Pack-First-Nature-10-Port-HummingBird-Feeder-3051-16-oz/382956338814?hash=item5929f9fe7e:g:PXwAAOSwxzRc3QRT&mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&siteid=0&campid=5338267736&customid=&toolid=10001&mkevt=1

The best feeder I have is the Aspects Hummzinger. You have to order it, (Amazon has it for $35). It's the only one I've found where the feeder ports don't have any sharp edges, and is the easiest to keep clean. Other companies imitate that design, but have razor-sharp feeder ports and no quality. The Hummzinger will last many years, (or decades), and is SO easy to clean. I have wasted money on other feeders and keep going back to the one by Aspects, they truly care about birds. Moldy and fermented feeders kill hummingbirds, you're correct that feeders shouldn't be in the sun.

In Washington state, the rufous hummingbirds we have don't migrate! When it snowed, I had to keep two feeders going alternatively because one would freeze, then I'd replace it with the thawed out feeder. They are at the feeder at the first crack of light, so I had to be ready. I was so afraid they'd die. So if you're lover of hummers in the Pac NW, please don't stop feeding them in the fall, spring and winter! They need you the most then! 🙂 And thank you for mentioning not using red dye! When you mentioned that, I knew you were a pro! 🎖

Afternoon Robbie. Do you maybe have a plan for me against bees at the Hummingbird feeders?
snow diann

We have the one with the yellow flowers on it. It's leaking should I just replace it.
We had a family of them show up 2 years ago and when I seen them I went and got 2 feeders. I watched them all summer long while in my garden. I was a wreck all winter long hoping they had decided this was their summer home and that i would see them next year. Last year as soon as the weather broke I rushed to get my feeders out again hoping to see them return. I didn't see them return until mid June. It was like a weight was lifted when I seen mama hovering infront of my kitchen window one morning. So, here I am again chomping at the bit to get my old feeders and a few new feeders back up and my garden going hoping to see them and the bees back soon. Thank you for bringing up ants and how to combat them. I will absolutely be putting that to use this summer!

Should not be feeding Hummingbirds Burds. Nothing manmade is equivalent to the nectar that they need. Feeding Hummingbirds is essentially the same as killing them. Plant appropriate nectar sources instead. Video like this should be banned from You Tube.

Are You able to pay someone to take care of them so You could go away for the day or wknd?!? How does that work?? Curious to even start if it is a responsibility? Your thoughts?

We have Black-chinned hummers here, and the males are MUCH more territorial than yours (Anna's?). They won't allow any but their own mate or offspring to use a feeder. The male will perch and watch dutifully, then chase off any and all intruders. I now have one "Welcome home!" feeder out and will put two more out when they arrive - but I have to place them where only one at a time can be seen by the guard male.

Heres you a quick tip I figured out... You can make your sugar water up real fast in the microwave. Just put a cup of water in microwave until it gets real hot usually 2 minutes. Then put a cup of sugar in it and mix it up till it turns clear. I then put 3 more cups of plain cool faucet water in a bowl with a handle on it i got from Dollar Tree. Pour your sugar water into the 3 cups of water and stir. Voila! Its now cool enough to fill your hummingbird feeders. Less than 5 minutes beginning to end to hang up and enjoy

Fire ants can cross the water, add a tiny drop of dish soap. Yellow jackets would attempt to take over my feeders. I gave them the BUSINESS with a handheld pump sprayer and some soapy water.

Here's my opinion: Hummingbirds need flower nectar not colored sugar water or anything else we might feed them. This is fast food that will depress their immune systems. Please plant the flowering plants that they love instead of turning them into junkies. Today a Black throated Hummer left the flowers and flew right up to me checking me out. Then flew 3 ft away from my face hovering there and just eye balled me. So amazing!

Many years ago, two days after moving from east coast to California, I was standing on my balcony and this giant "bug" flew next to my head. I went running into the house and told my husband, "If that was a mosquito I want to go back to Boston!!" LOL It was a hummingbird. I'd never seen one before. Now I love them and feed them regularly. They still buzz me when the feeder is low but I no longer mind. Thank you for your video.

I was under the impression that sugar water is actually bad for them. Just as it is bad for humans. The sugar increases their heart rate higher than it already is and then the sugar crash is far more detrimental to their tiny little selves. Plus, there are zero nutrients in sugar water.

Hmm, kinda like the idea of making one too. I have one you recommended, it's available from home depot. It's been so interesting putting up a feeder not really knowing if/when a hummer might stop by. And now sometimes there's like a happy hour with a number of birds coming around.

unfortunately in my area there was a salmonella outbreak & it killed many birds :-( All my hummers. Don't know if it was nation wide or only PNW?? I'm sorry that happened to them & You. Be very careful of mold in feeders as that can carry disease also. She sai clean with soap or bleach but that is not what pros say as rinsing is CRITICAL!!! or that can kill them. Scrubbing every 3-4 days when hot is best. I always figure tap water in cities has enough bleach if You keep up on good cleaning... HUGS & PRAYERS for healthy hummers soon!

Hummzinger feeders all the way. easy access, easy clean. Cane sugar, no beet sugar. It goes bad faster, and there's debate whether it damages the birds liver , same with those stupid dyes. You must not have hornets cause they LOVE the color yellow. When I first started I thought they were a good idea. Wrong. I had hornets chasing the hummers away, get into the house, no thank you. Again, Hummzinger, easy fill, easy clean, no dripping.

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.

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.

The Anna's hummers live in the Pacific Northwest all yr long. No migration. Anna's are VERY territorial!! Yes... one male will guard as mamy feeders as he can see. Very sad to me. Bossy lil brats ;-) But good LORD made them that way. 'They' say put feeders out of line of sight of others but... I want to see them :-( Females will share so You can eventually see multiple females when established but will never see what that lady has... doesn't work with Anna's. Though if You have an enviroment where some of the visiting Rufous & other summer species might visit & give the Anna's males more than they can handle?!?! Even a few is better than none :-) Each yr You will get a few more...

Yeah, I have 3 or 4 feeders that I set up and the males will perch on top and if another bird comes to feed, they chase them away. All of mine seem to be very territorial. None like to share. I've been feeding for about 8 years and I always make sure to put my feeders out early until they arrive, but I have never had large numbers like this. I'm not sure of the exact amount, but it seems like I have maybe 6-8 every year. Of course, I'm not sure because it's rare that they feed at the same time.

Ours are as well and it doesn't matter how many feeders are out. We usually have 5 big ones at one end of the house and there can be 2 hummingbirds and one will try to run the other off.

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.
Becky Nelson
Becky Nelson 4 days ago
the mold comes from the birds themselves - the nectar & bug contaminants they bring in. Also making the syrup stronger than recommended makes it impossible for some varieties of hummers to drink it :-( The grooves in their tongues can only draw up certain viscosity. Check pro sites like Audubon etc. Always use 4-1; maybe a tiny dab more ;-) Boiling is only needed for impure water. As long as water is potable & hot to insure suspension of sugar - all is well :-) TY for feeding the lil darlings.

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. 😂🤗🇨🇦
Eliza Bassett-Wilson
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!
Seaweede Starfish
@Eliza Bassett-Wilson oh no! That’s scary. Glad to hear you’re much safer now thanks to the right feeder!
Eliza Bassett-Wilson
@Seaweede Starfish yeah, wasps are probably the biggest feeder problem for me because I’m allergic. It was a whole new world once there was no food source for the wasps!
Seaweede Starfish
So glad you mentioned the HUMMZINGER. I have a huge problem with wasps every single spring and just bought a HUMMZINGER in hopes of warding off those nasty buggers! Still too cold to put it up in Upstate NY just yet but I can’t wait! Wish me luck.

Thank you for all the great info. Love how you keep it so simple & easy. Makes it all the more enjoyable. Learned something very interesting about Hummingbirds the other day. Their brain makes up 1/4 of their body weight. They are so intelligent that they will remember every feeder & group of flowers they have fed from their whole life! Pretty Amazing little Gems💖
