My Top Fill Feeder is leaking - what should I do?

  • Check to make sure the base compartments are securely tightened
  • Push container into base to close ports to prevent leakage
  • Unscrew to cap to fill with nectar

Where is the best place to hang my new hummingbird feeder?

Place your hummingbird feeder away from sun and wind. The sun may cause the mixture to turn bad and the wind may swing the feeder around, causing the mixture to spill.

How do I attract hummingbirds to my feeder?

Hummingbirds will find your nectar feeder, although there are some steps you can take to help the tiny birds find it sooner. Tying a red ribbon on the feeder wire or pole will help them locate it. Some enthusiasts prefer to use red nectar, although hummingbirds will also find the clear nectar in hummingbird feeders. Another "tried and true" method is to plant flowers that attract hummingbirds adjacent to the feeder area. Placing a birdbath in your yard near the feeder may help to attract them, after which they may also then find the nectar in the feeder.

How do I clean my hummingbird feeders?

Hummingbird feeders really need to be cleaned every week. Use a mild soap and water solution and a bottle brush to easily clean your feeders. The Perky - Pet® cleaning mop is specially designed for this purpose and very convenient to use. A bleach solution of 10 parts water to 1 part bleach can also be used as long as it is then rinsed completely. This cleaning mop can also be used on your oriole feeders, too!

What is birdscaping?

Birdscaping: A common term used to describe creating the ideal environment to entice and support hummingbirds in your yard. Several key elements are as follows:

  • Trees, shrubs and flowers provide a perching area, shelter and food.
  • Water is a necessary element that is attractive to all birds. Providing a bird bath could be as simple as turning over the clean lid to a trash can and filling it with water.
  • Feeders that provide easy access to nectar and keep pests away are ideal for attracting hummingbirds.
  • Certain flowers’ nectars are also an attractant for hummingbirds.

Are Hummingbirds Really Attracted to Red?

Hummingbirds have color vision that surpasses humans and even extends into the UV range. They see all colors well. Much of nature is green, due to vegetation. The color that contrasts most with green is red, so it's no coincidenceHummingbirds attracted to red hummingbird feeders that many hummingbird - pollinated flowers are red or orange; they are the easiest to see and attract hummingbirds the fastest. However, hummingbirds are very curious creatures that are constantly exploring their environment for food sources that satisfy their high - energy needs. Thus, they often "stumble upon" non - red flowers that have good nectar loads and will return to those flowers as long as nectar is available. If you have an established location where hummingbirds are known to feed, your feeder does not have to contain the red color; because of their curiosity, hummingbirds will track down a food source, regardless of color.

    Perky pet red nectar Hummingbird food / Birds will not touch it.

    By Cheeks on Mar 28, 2021

    I filled my Hummingbird feeder with Perky Pet to try instead of my own mix. Sat for a week and did not see one Hummingbird. I Refilled Feeder with my own Sugar mix and in less than two days their are lots of Hummingbirds and feeder is half empty. Sorry but product does not work for some reason. Cheeks

    No red dye needed

    By Jenna on Feb 9, 2019

    The hummingbirds don't actually like the red dye. It's simple to make a hummingbird food they will devour one part sugar, three parts boiling water.

    Much to strong

    By Archie on Sep 10, 2018

    When I first got this I used it and noticed that the hummers found it but the did not want it. I checked it out and every one on the internet said use 1 part sugar and 3 parts boiling water and no red dye. I tried this and they love it. This nectar is 40% sugar.

    Hummer Summer

    By Talbert on Aug 22, 2018

    Nectar is from concentrate but very easy to mix. One part Nectar to 3 parts cold water. Since the Nectar has to be changed every 3 days in the summer, using the concentrated version makes it cost effective....and the Charms love it!

    Wonderful product

    By Cookie on May 6, 2018

    The hummers arrived in OK early this year. I had put the feeder out a week before the "arrival" date. They seem to like this nectar.

    Nectar needed red coloring isn't

    By ARS72 on Feb 12, 2018

    I am simply doing this review to debunk the myth that many people seem to think you need "red" nectar to attract hummers. This is false. While yes, it has been shown red is a favorite color for hummers, the red dyes used in nectar mixes is absolutely unneeded, & is nothing more than an additive that has zero nutritional value to hummers. It is also used as a marketing ploy, to attract your eyes, as red is rather bright & attractive. Nectar naturally is clear. Clear sucrose is the best to feed hummers. For attracting them, simply using a red feeder is enough. If you have a diff color feeder, simply adding things to the feeder like red ribbons, red x-mas ornaments, etc. will help bring them in.

You can also add things to the area like red tubular flowers that naturally hold nectar, other red flowers, red chair cushions, red gazing globes, red flower pots, etc. While yes they indeed are attracted to red, the most attractive thing for hummers, is simply a regularly filled, clean feeder. Cleanliness is apparently a big thing to hummers. While I have tried this perky pet nectar, & have nothing bad to say about it, I cannot recommend it, not with what I know now. It is best to just use clear, high sucrose content nectar. No need for the food dyes. Just add red items to the feeder area, & you will see just as many, if not more hummers come. Just keep things clean & tidy. :) … more

    Give them liquid energy

    By Birdlover on Nov 12, 2017

    The red nectar liquid concentrate was so easy to measure. Compared to the powders way less messy. My birds like the vivid color red as well. Excellent product that will go along way for the price. Thanks Chewy!
