Hummingbird Feeder Buying Guide

Hummingbirds sharing a hummingbird feeder.

Having the right hummingbird feeder is important for attracting hummingbirds. Below are a few features and characteristics to look for when choosing a hummingbird feeder for your yard:

  • Easy to clean
  • Red in color
  • Protected from ants

Choose an Easy-to-Clean Hummingbird Feeder

Because hummingbird nectar spoils so easily in the heat, hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned every two days. Choose a bird feeder that comes apart easily and has no deep crevasses that are hard to clean. This is the perfect place for mold to hide and grow.

Choose a Hummingbird Feeder that is Mostly Red

Hummingbirds will feed on plants of all colors. However, hummingbirds are most attracted to the color red. This is because most red flowers are adapted for hummingbirds. For instance, red flowers are usually tubular in shape which allows hummingbirds to feed easily and keeps bees out.

Ant Protection for a Hummingbird Feeder

Some hummingbird feeders come with something called an ant cup. An ant cup is a moat of water that prevents ants from getting into the hummingbird nectar in your feeder. Hummingbirds will not feed on insect-infested nectar, and the ant cup will keep ants out and hummingbirds feeding in your yard.

Hummingbird Feeder Perches

Some hummingbird feeders come with perches. This is OK. It will give hummingbirds a place to rest and relax while staying close to their favorite feeder. However, perches aren't necessary. Hummingbirds naturally hover as they feed on the nectar of their favorite flowers, so they don't need a perch. The best kind of hummingbird feeder is one with a removable perch. That way, you can use your feeder both ways and see which way attracts the more hummingbirds.

Hummingbird Feeder Variety

Don't be afraid to hang more than one hummingbird feeder spaced far apart in your yard. This will not only attract more hummingbirds, but it will also cut down on the competition between hummingbirds to monopolize your feeder.

Once you've gotten your feeders up, expect some friends. Also, don't be afraid to leave your feeders out until the first hard frost. This will keep hummingbirds coming back so you can continue enjoying bird watching.
