A gorgeous rendering of nature's splendid beauty, this artistically inventive Avant Garden Looking-Glass Hummingbird Feeder offers not only visually stunning aesthetics, but it also makes it easy to attract beautiful hummingbirds into your yard. Among the smallest of birds, the dainty darlings mesmerize and enchant onlookers with their iridescent color, purring wings, and delightful dance as they dart about. Watch all that cuteness up close with help from this elegant hanging feeder.
Holding up to 32 ounces of nectar, this hummingbird feeder features an elongated globe-shaped bottle made of slightly frosted glass. The shiny copper base of the feeder offers four flower-shaped feeding ports, complete with bright-red flower petals that will quickly capture the attention of hungry hummingbirds. The floral motif extends upward with vine detailing that wraps seductively around the glass bottle, finishing at the top in the shape of a sturdy, curved, hanging hook.
Use the integrated hanging hook to hang the hummingbird feeder near a porch, deck, patio, or a window overlooking the garden. An ideal location not only provides a great view, but is also hummingbird friendly. Hummingbirds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be near flowers and in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. A hummingbird-friendly location will be at least 15-20 feet away from windows and 10-15 feet away from nearby coverage, like a shrub, so they feel safe and protected from predators.
Keep the feeder clean and filled with fresh nectar to ensure return visits from happy hummingbirds. Avant Garden recommends cleaning the hummingbird feeder at least twice a week, more often in very warm climates or seasons.
A. Make sure it is one that will be easy to clean and fill, especially since you will need to clean the feeder every few days. If you are worried about bees and wasps or ants invading the feeder, purchase a hummingbird feeder with bee guards.
A. Hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned every 1-2 weeks. Use hot water and a bottle brush, along with mild soap; be sure to rinse thoroughly.The Perky-Pet cleaning mop is specifically designed for the purpose of cleaning hummingbird feeders, and is very convenient to use. This cleaning mop can also be used on seed feeders and oriole feeders for those small, tight spaces that are difficult to reach.
A. Hummingbirds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need nectar. Hummingbirds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide hummingbirds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for hummingbirds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy.
