LUJII Hummingbird Feeder

Hummingbirds Make Excellent Friends

LUJII Hummingbird Feeder looks fantastic even compared to most hummingbird feeding stations, with bright colors, unique and fascinating patterns, and an inviting construction. Despite its charming and refined look though, the model's surprisingly tough. With two layers the hand-blown glass here is durable, resistant to fading and considerable drop damage. Likewise, the gasket that seals the base is leakproof, preventing nectar from leaking. The construction might start leaking with time anyway though, so you'll probably have to replace the gasket in a few years.

Considering the stunning appearance, you'd think that this feeder is anything but practical but that would be a wrong assumption to make. The reservoir comes equipped with a wide mouth, making it easy to fill the reservoir as well as to clean. The two-part base contributes too, allowing you to view and refill nectar with relative ease. Finally, the reservoir's capacity measures 36 fluid ounces, so you won't be refilling it as often as you normally would be. Plus, the rest station comes equipped with five feeder ports, attracting and accommodating more hummingbirds than most feeders, so you'll be able to rest and watch these majestic birds and maybe even make friends with them.

Aspects _Hummingbird Feeder

No Need to Complicate Things

Aspects HummZinger HighView Hanging Hummingbird Feeder is the least complicated and convoluted product on this list. As you can probably tell from the pictures, the model ditches the antique lantern aesthetic and brings you this nice little basic perch. It is not as attractive as hummingbird feeders usually are but, as far as we're aware, birds do not appreciate intricate patterns and complex design solutions as much as we do and the model's bright red housing will be attracting hummingbirds no less than most feeders.

Besides, it is much less of a pain to maintain. You can easily remove the bowl and clean it quickly and thoroughly. The cover's also easily removable to enable simple refilling. The polycarbonate construction makes this product much more durable than even the most robust hand-blown glass models, so you won't have to worry about dropping this one.

Ants can be an issue sometimes. With the built-in ant moat, you'll be able to solve that issue, preventing crawling insects from contaminating the nectar. Last but not least, the construction comes equipped with 4 feeding ports and offers you an unobstructed view, so you'll be able to gaze at the birds from any angle without having to move or rotate the bowl.

Muse Garden __Hummingbird Feeder

The Portable Muse

The people behind Muse Garden Hummingbird Feeder are right on the nose with the company's name. There's probably no need to elaborate, you should be able to tell from the images that this product looks brilliant, with the charming blue bottle adorned with fascinating little dots and patterns. Will the captivating appearance attract hummingbirds? Probably. Will this thing add glamorous colors to the courtyard and elevate the vibe there? Absolutely. The small bubbles on the surface make each bottle unique but the themes are reduced to Fireworks, Phoenix, and Starry Night, all three lovely in their own right.

Setting aesthetics aside, you have this perch with 4 feeder ports for hummingbirds to eat and rest and an ant moat that will block crawling insects from entering the ports. The materials, including the hand-blown glass, metal porch, and plastic feeder ports are all lead-free and toxic-free. In addition to everything else, the package includes an S-hook and some hemp rope so that you're able to hang this one onto any strong branch without drilling and purchasing anything separately.

In short, with its dazzling appearance and practical design, Muse Garden Hummingbird Feeder will appeal esthetes and practical-minded customers alike.

First Nature Hummingbird Flower Feeder

Putting Nature First

First Nature Hummingbird Feeder is pretty much what these feeders are all about and what they're supposed to be like. The construction is not that complicated but every little detail here has and serves its purpose. The bright red paintwork will be attracting hummingbirds, while the yellow flowers will be drawing the birds but also discouraging bees and wasps. The flowers on the perch double as ports that will be able to accommodate ten hummingbirds, more than most perches.

To feed that many birds, the cup-like reservoir's capacity reaches 32 fluid ounces, enough to hold ample nectar supplies. The cup's massive mouth makes cleaning and refilling no challenge at all, while the two-part base can be twisted apart to enable thorough cleaning without much discomfort.

Aside from its large capacity, the reservoir is made from pretty thin plastic, something that will unlikely cause any issues but we would recommend erring on the side of caution with it anyway. The other plastic elements here are sturdy enough, including the built-in ant moat that will be making sure crawling ants cannot get inside the feeder.

Bottom line, First Nature Hummingbird Feeder puts nature first but also does not forget about making sure you're not inconvenienced with this feeding station too.

More Birds _Hummingbird Feeder_

Can't go Wrong with Vintage

More Birds Hummingbird Feeder with its vintage-inspired antique glass bottle will be able to add class to most courtyards. The aqua-tinted antique glass will be bringing the bygone era's elegance, while the burnt penny finish base will be contributing to the antique aesthetic too, making the feeding station look even more dignified.

There's nothing antique about the flowers that serve as feeding ports though, they've been made bright red and pretty simple to attract hummingbirds. Next to them are these nice little perches/rest stations where these glorious birds can rest, unwind and idle. The entire construction measures 9 inches height-wise and 8 inches diameter-wise, enough to accommodate five birds and the 20-fluid-ounce bottle but also to make sure the model's not too bulky so that you're able to use most branches to hang this one.

The price's more than reasonable and the product looks stunning, we've already laid that down. The reason it is rounding out the list is that the package does not include an ant moat and the construction does not accommodate separate ones too, so crawling insects might contaminate the nectar. Other than that, More Birds Hummingbird Feeder is pretty convenient and more than delightful enough to add character to most gardens.

What Is a Hummingbird Feeder?

Aside from looking majestic, hummingbirds are also very important to the environment. Adapted pollinators, these birds play an important pollination role. Unfortunately, these birds are primarily endangered, but there's always something we can do, support them as much as we can. To begin with, we can install hummingbirds feeders in our courtyards.

These feeders attract hummingbirds and come fitted with feeder ports and reservoirs where you can put the nectar to feed these lovely birds. More often than not, they also come equipped with perches and rest stations so that the birds feel comfortable sitting there, eating and resting. When these stations are armed with ant moats, things are looking especially great because crawling insets can contaminate the nectar, so these moats prevent them from crawling inside the feeders. You might not be necessarily buying them for that reason alone but, generally speaking, modern hummingbirds feeders also look beautiful, usually incorporating some antique oil lantern-inspired look that makes them an attractive decorative addition to most yards.

Bees are as important and butterflies are as majestic as hummingbirds, so these bee houses and butterfly houses are something we'd recommend too.
