With the Top Fill Feeder, keeping a clean feeding station is no longer time consuming. The wide-mouth bottle makes it easy to clean the hard-to-reach places inside the bottle. Plus, the base and feeding ports come apart completely, so no piece goes uncleaned due to inaccessibility. Remember to clean your feeder at least once per week with a mild soap and water solution to prevent mildew buildup.Accessorize Your Hummingbird Feeder When you’re feeding many birds, having the right accessories can make the experience that much more enjoyable.

Review RateFeeding issue
Easy to clean, easy to fill. Does not leak. However, it does not seem to let the hummers get the nectar from it. I have 10 or more hummers and they land on the feeder and try to eat, but fly away to another feeder. The level of nectar does not change so I know that the birds are not feeding there. Can I fix this problem?Response From Perky-Pet®Elizabeth : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateShort Lived
I purchased the Red Hibiscus Top Fill Plastic Hummingbird Feeder at Walmart last season. It worked fine then. This season the feeder will not hold nectar as it drips from the base. I disassembled the feeder and found the float that controls the level of liquid in the base filled internally with nectar rendering the feeder useless.Response From Perky-Pet®Elizabeth : Consumer Relations Representative
I am sorry to hear this happened. Your Perky-Pet® feeder is covered under a one year warranty. Please contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) and we will be happy to offer assistance.
Review RateNot recommended. Leaks.
I also can’t keep nectar in it. It leaks all out. As soon as I started using it. Brand new. Not a good product at all.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are sorry for this experience. To help prevent this, the feeder should be kept level and protected from the wind. Please also be sure the lid is assembled tightly to form a vacuum seal.

Review RateAvoid this model
I got this at Walmart last summer. It worked well then. It leaks now. I have disassembled it to clean, screwed base on firmly. The plastic is deformed, it leaks no matter how well I put it back together. I won't buy this type again. I did just buy the 8oz pinched glass model. So far it works well. I hope it lasts. I gave it a 1 because it lasted one summer. If it lasted 2 seasons, I would have given it a 5 and would have no complaints.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are very sorry to hear of this experience and would like to make it right! This feeder is covered by a one year warranty. Please feel free to contact us directly for further assistance. Our Consumer Relations Team can be reached at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
Review RateFood just pours out
I have followed directions carefully. As soon as I pull on it though after filling it just all comes pouring out. What am I doing wrong? How else can I get the ports open and less I pull it out? And if I pull it up as directed it all just comes pouring out.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
This is not a push-pull design but rather a top fill feeder. To fill, simply twist off the top and pour the nectar into the bottle. Be sure to thread the lid onto the feeder tightly after filling to form a vacuum seal.
We hope this information was helpful! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions or for additional assistance.
Review RateEasy to fill and clean
I really liked this feeder! It was super easy to fill and especially to clean because of the wide opening and how the base disassembled. I write this in past tense because I had to toss mine after I put it in the dishwasher and it didn't hold up (my fault, but the reason for 4star rating). This is my first choice for my next feeder(s) for sure.
Review RateAnts get in through flowers
Despite the "ant moat" designed to keep out ants, I've found my feeder swarming in big black ants. They are getting in through the flowers, drowning in the nectar and floating up into the bottle. When I opened it to clean out the dead ants I could see, a dozen more live ants came out of the base.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. How long has the ant moat been used? It may take a little time for the ants to be repelled from the feeder. Where is the product being used? We recommend hanging it directly above the feeder.
Our Consumer Relations Team is happy to provide additional assistance. Please feel free to contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
I bought this feeder through Walmart. Very disappointed. It leaks at the seam in the base. No way to make it tighter. I really like how you can disassemble to clean thoroughly, though.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
When assembled correctly, this feeder should not leak. We recommend dis-assembling the feeder and re-assembling it. The feeder should also be hung in an area that does not receive direct sunlight (liquid will expand when it gets warmer).

Review RatePOORLY DESIGNED PIECE OF PLASTIC. WASTE OF MONEY.
LEAKS AROUND "SEAM" WHERE BOTTOM PART IS SCREWED INTO NEXT HIGHER PART. TOOK APART AFTER LOSING 6 OZ. NECTAR, WASHED OUT, AND RECONNECTED TWICE. DID NOT MATTER AT ALL. STILL LEAKS, BADLY.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: This is my first Top Fill Hummingbird feeder, what are some good tips to filling and cleaning my new feeder?
A: Follow the steps on the chart for best filling and cleaning tips.
Q: I typically get a lot of ants around my hummingbird feeders, what can I do to prevent them from getting to the nectar?
A: No worries, with this top fill feeder - it has a built in ant moat right in the lid of the feeder. After filling your feeder and hanging, simply pour a small amount of water in the top of the lid.
Q: What criteria should I use when selecting a hummingbird feeder?
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, such as the Perky-Pet® model #203CP or ant guards, Perky-Pet® model #242.
Q: How do I clean my hummingbird feeders?
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.
Q: What is the importance of providing water for hummingbirds?
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.
