Hummingbird feeders?

Hummingbird feeders?

28 February, 2010 (04:35) | hummingbird feeders | By: admin


Which is better for attracting hummingbirds…the type that allows them to feed out of the bottom or the type where they feed from a small hole and have a place to rest?

If you buy the ones where they can rest, you can view them better. You can see the colors of their wings. We used to put our fingers over the plastic perches and they would land on our fingers.

I don’t really think there is a better way in terms of health of the bird. Mostly, it is just viewing preferences.

(Remember not to add food coloring to the syrup, though. The design of the feeder is attractive to the birds enough!)

Hope this helps you decide.

I don’t think it matters much…and I’m sure they feed while flying so whichever you like. Just make sure NOT to put red food dye in the water.

I have both, and quite frankly they usually don’t perch on the ones that have a place for them to. I think I have see it happen a couple of times at most. But I still prefer that kind , I have seen as many as three feeding on one feeder. And they will guard and fight over either kind for food. I love to watch them. Hopes this helps.

I have one with perches…and they do perch quite often. It is nice to be able to see them when they are not flapping…so I prefer the perch kind. I don’t think the birds care one way or the other.

Well my friend has a hummingbird feeder that allows them to feed from the bottom and I have seen a lot of hummingbirds come there. Also I have never seen a hummingbird stop to rest so I would suggest the one that feeds them from the bottom.

I keep hearing about the new Perky-Pet Top Fill hummingbird feeders. Would you recommend these? They look like they would be very easy to clean and fill.
