For the ultimate hummingbird viewing experience, this Perky-Pet Window-Mount Hummingbird Feeder features a unique window-mount design that brings hummingbirds right up to your window. Enjoy the familiar buzzing of wings, flash of iridescent color, and adorable, tiny features of the well-loved hummingbird--all from the comfort of indoors. Whether you're having dinner with the family, relaxing on the couch, or working on art projects with the kids, this hummingbird feeder adds the mesmerizing splendor of nature to any room of your home. Ideal for bird enthusiasts of any age, this feeder makes it easy to see hummingbirds up close.
Holding up to 6 ounces of nectar, this hummingbird feeder features a transparent, shatterproof, plastic reservoir and bright-red plastic parts that will quickly capture the attention of hungry hummingbirds. Its rounded, gently sloped cover comes equipped with three loop-shaped perches and three corresponding feeding ports for restful perching and dining VIP style.
Use the included suction cup to securely attach the feeder to any outside window. Perhaps on a kitchen window for charming company when sipping coffee with a friend or washing dishes at the sink. A den or living-room window works well, too. As an alternative to using the suction cup, this hummingbird feeder can also be hung by a screw or nail in a different location, like on the side of a tree or attached to a post. Either way, the feeder promises exciting and enchanting sightings throughout the day.
An ideal location not only provides a great view, but is also hummingbird friendly. Hummingbirds prefer space so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be near flowers and in a spot that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. A hummingbird-friendly location will be at least 10-15 feet away from nearby coverage, like a shrub, so they feel safe and protected from predators.
This hummingbird feeder's dish-style reservoir is transparent for monitoring nectar levels at a glance, plus it unscrews from the cover for effortless filling and easy access to all parts when cleaning. Keep the feeder clean and filled with fresh nectar to ensure routine return visits from happy hummingbirds. Perky-Pet recommends cleaning the 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.
