Perky-Pet® 1 Quart Droplet Bird Waterer

Create a welcoming oasis for a wide range of wild birds with this hanging Perky-Pet® 1 Quart Droplet Bird Waterer. Providing a reliable source of fresh, clean drinking water will not only delight the lovely winged creatures, but will also take your outdoor space to a whole new level of bird-watching enjoyment.

Water-Droplet Shape with 1 Quart Capacity - Along with its 1-quart (32-ounce) capacity, the durable plastic waterer offers an integrated loop up top for easy hanging, a transparent raindrop-shaped reservoir for checking water levels at a glance, and a flat-bottomed water tray with a wrap-around perch so birds can sit, drink, and stay awhile.

Easy to Clean and Use- The water reservoir unscrews from the base, making all parts easy to access and clean. To fill, simply hold the reservoir upside down and pour water in through the wide opening. Once filled, screw the base back into place and flip the unit so it's right-side up. Perky-Pet® recommends replacing the water every few days to ensure freshness, as well as cleaning the waterer every couple weeks with a mild soap and water solution, rinsing thoroughly.


Attract More Birds - From Cardinals, Chickadees, Finches, and Flickers to Hummingbirds, Robins, Woodpeckers, and Wrens--the options are endless when it comes to what birds you might see gliding in for a visit.

This waterer makes an excellent complement to bird feeders, bird houses, bird baths, and other accessories. By offering water in addition to a food source, you will attract a larger variety of wild birds to your yard, including those that don't eat seed, like Bluebirds, Swallows, and Warblers.

Great and lovely waterer By CarolK

This works great and looks beautiful hanging in my yard near the other bird feeders. Maybe it's more suited for small birds, but the larger birds have a bird bath. I have mine hanging from a "S" hook and just turn it over right when I re-hang the cleaned and re-filled waterer up.

Looks cute but not really functional By Lacey92122

I bought this a few weeks ago in the middle of a heat wave. The sparrows and house finches were drinking all the water in my ant moats on my hummer feeders. While this may be fine for really small birds like goldfinches, I notice that the shape interferes with the other birds, they have to turn sideways to get to the water, and that means they are sometimes pooping in the water. Will be ordering one of the slimmer types.

Disappointed By m7c57

I am disappointed that the birds won't drink from this cute Droplet Waterer. I ordered 2 and will not order anymore.

Response From Perky-Pet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. Birds are creatures of habit and it may take time for them to become comfortable with a new feeder/waterer in their environment. We recommend temporarily removing established feeders/waterer's to aide the transition.

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.

Hmmm By Dmc163

I bought this because I constantly see birds trying to drink from the hummingbird feeders. I have it hanging right near the bird feeder but I have not seen much activity so far and it has been up for about a month.

We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.  

A number of seed-eating birds can be found feeding from hummingbird feeders, including orioles, finches, sparrows, and woodpeckers.  They are not using it just as a source of water, but will eat sweet fruits in nature and enjoy the nectar.  We do recommend providing water for birds.  However if other water sources are nearby, these creatures of habit may take some time to get used to a new source.

Not as hoped By philcolynn

I love the idea but the water gets blown out too easy and if a bigger bird lands on it, it will down over! I hope they go back to the drawing board and do some thing better!!!

Nice waterer By Paperlady65

Love this waterer. Simple to fill, and good perch size for a variety of birds. So far only a few of the birds are using it, but I'm sure word will travel fast!

Living Hopefully By psom
I purchased the waterer because I had noticed how hot and thirsty the birds at my feeder sometimes appeared. After braiding a hanger for it, I hung it in my tree near the feeder. The seem to be frightened by it so far, but some of the younger birds are at least using the feeder a little bit. I live in hope that they will adjust to it's presence if they get hungry enough.

Helpful in the Desert By luvhummers
I live in the desert and the birds need all the help they can to get a drink of water.

Q.Hello, we have high hopes for this waterer but we're having problems getting water to fill the tray. We have to go outside and jiggle it around. I haven't looked yet but are there holes that I can enlarge just a little bit to help? Otherwise, how can we improve or even start getting water in the tray on its own?

If the water is not flowing into the base, then it may be air-locked. To prevent this, we recommend slightly loosening the bottle and base so that the water will flow more freely. the plastic thik enuf to withstand freezing temperatures without cracking

We would not recommend leaving the Perky-Pet® Droplet Bird Waterer filled when temperatures are below freezing.
