Hummingbird Feeders - Glass, Plastic and More

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

Hummingbirds are a great bird to lure into your back yard - they're cute and fast, flirtatious, and can hover! If you live in a hummingbird-friendly area, which includes most of the US and many other countries, here are some feeders you can look into.

Don't forget to visit the Hummingbird Encyclopedia Entry to learn more about these amazing little birds!



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.
