Perky-Pet Hummingbird Feeder
Perky-Pet hummingbird feeder does not come with a hangar so I just fed some kitchen string through the hole on the top. The model in the photo is a little over $20.
I did not purchase commercial food but found an easy method online.
NECTAR RECIPE FROM ONLINE
In a pot combine 1 part sugar to 4 parts water (1 cups water + 4/2 cup sugar) and boil it for 2 minutes to get out the chlorine. Let it cool and fill.
The amount you see in the feeder is about the entire amount so it holds quite a bit. The tag on it says it holds 16 ounces.
The glass is thick and the plastic feeder stands are sturdy. It has what the company calls a built-in funnel that did make it foolproof to fill, though I used a plastic kitchen funnel to be sure I didn't pour it all over the place.
The company sent it to me to try out and review and I give it a thumbs up.
