Bottom Fill Feeders

Would you like to attract gorgeously iridescent hummingbirds to your yard? Of course you would! What could be more interesting and exciting for avid bird-watchers and novices alike then seeing those tiny birds in action? A great way to do this is with a Perky-Pet® Bottom Fill Feeder, a true complement to any yard or deck. The reservoir has only one opening at the base! That’s where you remove the feeder portion to fill the unit. It's the most basic and traditional type of hummingbird feeder to use. Just fill these with nectar - turn them upside down - and they're ready to hang.

Here at Perky-Pet®, we know what it takes to attract and keep those delightful birds hanging around! These Bottom fill Feeders are designed to provide ample access to nectar; the liquid nourishment hummingbirds depend upon.

Thinking Outside the Feeder

Some styles have a bee guard, which consists of a plastic screen in front of the port or a raised port to prevent bees from gaining access. Other styles have an added “anti-ant” feature called an ant moat. Fill the moat with water to prevent ants from coming down the feeder to the nectar ports. Feeders can also have perches on them – hummingbirds will feed with or without them, so it's your choice whether you want to provide that little bit of extra comfort.

Perky-Pet® offers 3 styles of bottom fill hummingbird feeders: Traditional, Funnel and Window.

Traditional Bottom Fill Hummingbird Feeders

Perky-Pet® sells several variations on the traditional style hummingbird feeders (usually referred to as 'bottom fill' feeders).

These feeders have an extensive track record of durability, success and a consistently high hummingbird approval rating (HAR). The Perky-Pet® “Our Best” Glass Hummingbird Feeder has a large capacity reservoir that holds 30 ounces of nectar! With 6 feeding ports and a unique, circular perch design, there’s plenty of food and space for lots of tiny hummingbirds. The clear glass makes it easy to keep an eye on nectar levels. And when it comes time for refilling or cleaning, the reservoir simply unscrews from the feeder. This captivating, elegantly designed feeder serves a dual function; it attracts both hummingbirds as well as their passionate and dedicated human admirers.

Funnel Fill Hummingbird Feeders

Funnel-fill feeder

Perky-Pet® offers two different, patented designs of funnel-fill feeders. The first has a cone-like, recessed bottom which functions... well, like a funnel – for fastidious pouring and easier filling. This unique design makes it easy to keep the reservoir full; you don't need a spout, external funnel or any other accessory. And you never have to worry about spilling again. After filling the glass reservoir with nectar, just replace the plug and invert the feeder to activate the feeding ports. Nectar channels in the base regulate the amount of nectar flow into the feeding station, helping to keep the nectar fresher longer.

The second design is equally as straightforward; it incorporates a removable cap that can act as a funnel when put in the bottle, again, making pouring easy and minimizing spills. Filling your Perky-Pet® Hummingbird Feeder has never been easier! These Bottom fill Feeders have a 16 oz reservoir made of durable glass, and 4 feeding ports.

Window Mounted Hummingbird Feeders

You'll get a fantastic close-up view of your feathered friends in action.
