How to Make a DIY Hummingbird Feeder

By Louis Dale

There are many different style of hummingbird feeders available that are easy to acquire materials and piece together. One simple design can be made with a plastic 1 liter bottle, a small ¼ cup plastic container , coat hanger and an eye hook. For your basic tools you will need a drill, pliers, hot glue gun and a utility knife.

The first thing you will need to do is cut a large hole out of the top of the bottle cap by drilling several holes into the cap and cutting the remainder out. Next, glue the cap upside down inside the top of the plastic container. Make sure you leave a ¼ inch of the cap sticking out above the plastic container. Also make sure there are a few empty spaces between the cap and the side of the container so the hummingbirds can get to the nectar.

Next simply drill a small hole into the bottom of the plastic bottle and screw the eye hook into the bottom. Make sure eye hook is screwed in tight to prevent air leakage. You may need to use hot glue to strengthen the bond. Once you have the eye hook in place use string or wire to attach the hummingbird feeder where you desire.

Make the nectar solution by adding one part regular white granulated sugar to four parts water. The solution will basically closely match the concentration of sucrose in most flower nectar. One liter of nectar solution typically lasts about 7 days.

Although crude and simple, this will make an excellent inexpensive hummingbird feeder. With a little decoration it can look appeasing to the eye and be an excellent way to watch the beauty of hummingbirds.
