Product Spotlight: Hummerbar®
The Hummerbar® is one of the more recent additions to the Perky-Pet® family of products, but it’s already revolutionizing the way people feed hummingbirds.
History of the Hummerbar®
This unique feeder was invented by a father and son team, Greg and Steven, who were faced with a problem many hummingbird lovers experience: too much competition at feeders. Greg started to notice that there were always hummingbirds waiting to take their turn at his many feeders, no matter how many feeders he added to his yard. It became too difficult to keep up with the demand of cleaning and filling the many feeders, so Greg knew he needed to come up with a solution
Greg and his son, Steven, began developing a single feeder that could feed all of the hummingbird visitors at once to prevent competition and simplify maintenance. After some trial and error, the Hummerbar® was born.
After a lot of interest from friends and neighbors, as well as many happy hummingbirds, Greg decided to obtain a patent and find a partner to bring his feeder to the market. Greg and Steven came to Perky-Pet® with their design and soon reached a deal. Finally, after all of their hard work, the Hummerbar® officially debuted in Spring of 2015 and it’s been wowing hummingbird lovers ever since.
A Quick Look at the Hummerbar
We offer two variations of this revolutionary feeder: the 2-foot Hummerbar® and the 4-foot Hummerbar®. The only major differences between the two versions of the Hummerbar® are the overall length, and therefore, the number of feeding ports. The 2-foot version has 22 ports, while the 4-foot version has 44 ports.

What Makes the Hummerbar® So Great?
The Hummerbar® is a revolutionary feeder that has been making headlines ever since it hit the market. But what exactly makes it so special? Here’s a quick look at a few of the most notable benefits of using a horizontal hummingbird feeder.
Clear Nectar Reservoir for Easy Monitoring of Nectar Levels
The reason for the clear reservoir is simple: it helps users to monitor nectar levels at a glance without actually having to open the feeder. However, this also has a benefit that was unintentional, which is that it provides a better view of the feeding action. The clear tubular design magnifies the action of the hummingbird's tongue while it feeds. Their tongues dart out between 20 and 80 times per second, and this feeder allows you to enjoy the action like never before!
Plenty of Feeding Ports to Attract More Hummers At Once
Hummingbirds can be very competitive and territorial birds. To eliminate unwanted competition, the Hummerbar® features plenty of feeding ports, 22 ports on the 2-foot and 44 ports on the 4-foot. The large number of ports makes it nearly impossible for a single hummingbird to defend the entire feeder. Additionally, the feeding ports are evenly spaced to allow multiple hummingbirds to feed side-by-side without interruption. This will ultimately attract more hummingbirds to your yard!
Offers a Natural Feeding Experience for Hummers
The Hummerbar® is designed to simulate the angles and depth of the nectar flowers the little birds love so much. By mimicking these features, hummingbirds have optimal access to nectar so they can reach the bottom of the Hummerbar® tube with their long tongues.
Provides a 360-degree View for Hummingbirds
One of the most notable benefits of the Hummerbar® is the horizontal orientation. This design provides hummingbirds with a 360-degree view of their environment while they feed. This aligns with their natural instinct to check for danger. With traditional vertical feeders, their view is impeded and hummingbirds need to check for danger more frequently. This horizontal style prevents them from having to stop feeding to make sure they are safe.
Easy to Fill and Clean
To allow for easy filling, this feeder comes complete with a mini funnel. You don’t even need to take down the feeder to refill it! Once the feeder is hung and leveled, simply remove the rubber stopper and insert the funnel to fill. In addition, the smooth plastic is easy to clean so that your hummers always have access to a fresh and healthy nectar supply.
