Window Hummingbird Feeder
I highly recommend this style to any hummingbird lover. Before I got this, there were years where I only saw one hummingbird a year, because they flit in and out so quickly. If you're not staring at your feeder the ten seconds they appear, you'd never know they were there. With a window feeder, it's right in front of your face, and you see when they come by! Now I see them CONSTANTLY!
Tall Glass Hummingbird Feeder
This style is one of the first I bought. The red color attracts the birds, and you can either fill it with red-colored nectar or clear nectar. It's very easy to clean and has multiple eating spots.
Balloon Hummingbird Feeder
This style is a little harder to clean, and might spoil a bit more quickly (more surface area showing during much of the draining cycle) but looks very pretty. A nice alternative to the tall one.
|Red Stick Hummingbird Feeder|
These are great for sticking in gardens, or other places where you don't have trees to hang from. They're vaguely flower-like and have colors that attract the hummingbirds.

|Pink Stick Hummingbird Feeder|
The stick feeders come in various colors. Easy to clean, the only downside is that each only holds a small amount. If you have a couple, it shouldn't matter. You want to clean them every few days anyway!
|Hand-Blown Hummingbird Feeder|
I got this one at a local colonial village - they're slightly more expensive, and harder to clean. They also only serve one hummingbird at a time and are more likely to drip than other feeders. A trade-off of pretty 'traditional' style vs modern function.
