Size, Style and Placement

Does size matter?

YES.  NO.  Well, maybe...

The Lil Sweety Feeder holds about 12 ounces, which is perfect for most of us who are feeding 10, or fewer, hummingbirds.  More feeders are better than one large one, especially for very territorial hummingbirds.

The Hum Sweet Hum, our largest feeder, holds about 24 ounces.  If you’re filling your feeders daily, or every other day, the Hum Sweet Hum is the best size for you and your hummingbirds.

NOTE
A larger feeder will not attract more hummingbirds and you'll still have that bossy bird, hogging the feeder.  The larger feeder accommodates those fortunate people who are already feeding dozens of hummingbirds.

The 12oz Lil Sweety feeder may be perfect for you if, like most of us, you’re feeding less than 10, or so, hummingbirds.

The large, Hum Sweet Hum isn’t for everyone but it may be just what you need if you’ve got lots of hummingbirds. Just don't rub our noses in it, OK??

Awesome Placement Options

Hang from just about anywhere

Hummingbirds' incredible flying abilities, combined with their need for calories, makes them very bold. They have no problem coming right up to your house to use your feeder. Many ask if they can hang a hummingbird feeder under an overhang or porch roof. Once your hummingbirds find the feeder, you may notice that they actually like it under an overhang, especially when it's raining.

If you'd like to be entertained by hummingbirds on your patio, use flowers to initially attract them and feeders to keep them hanging around. You'll find that they quickly get used to your presence. Sometimes a hummingbird will hover right in front of your face and check you out. Just stay still and enjoy it. It's an amazing experience.

Get up close and personal.

Those bold little hummingbirds will even come right up to the window to use your feeder.  Don't be surprised if you get a hummingbird looking right at you, through your window, to let you know the feeder is empty.

This beautiful and durable Suction Cup Window Hanger holds up to 4 lbs and is made in the USA.  Not that your hummingbirds give a hoot about where it’s made but we know you do.

Don’t Want to Hang it?

If you have a beautiful garden, you can add to it's beauty with a Garden Pole Mount hummingbird feeder right in, among your flowers. You've probably got flowers that are attracting hummingbirds, so the transition is natural and seamless for them. This three-piece set consists of the clear nectar bowl, a beautiful colored lid and a large, clear pole-mounted ant moat. You can use any one inch pole, post or pipe. The video below shows how easy it is to set up.

To avoid predators, such as cats, we recommend using a taller pole/pipe.  (4 - 5 feet)  A shorter pole is shown just for photographing and videoing.

This beautiful and ingenious feeder is only available here and the supply is limited. Once they're gone, they're gone forever.

Must a Hummingbird Feeder be red?

Hummingbirds need calories all the time.  So they can't afford to be picky about the color of nectar-producing flowers.  Some experts, lately, are arguing whether hummingbirds even see color.


Many people confuse “attract” with “feed.  Hummingbirds are naturally attracted to flowers.  Particularly, flowers that produce nectar.  Right now you're probably muttering, 'Well, what flowers attract hummingbirds???'  We could prattle on about different flowers but your local nursery has the BEST advice. We also have on-going information on our BLOG page.
