Review RateNot happy with the feeder and particularly the perch they sit on when they feed.
I have had the feeder for about six months and all that time maybe two humming birds used it!! It seems like they are not getting the nectar out of the flower opening very well and can NOT land on the "little vine shaped" plastic landing spots/posts (not the same feeder of the 121TF, that is used in the video here) . I would like my money back please and don't really know why this is not working when all my other feeders are doing just fine.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. We apologize for this experience and are happy to assist. Our feeders are covered under a 30 day return policy and backed by a one year warranty for replacement.
Hummingbirds can be creatures of habit and may prefer one feeder over another. To encourage the birds to visit the new feeder, we recommend temporarily removing established feeders until they try out the new one more regularly.
We appreciate the comments regarding the perches and have shared them with our Product Manager. Keep in mind that when feeding from flowers, hummingbirds prefer to hover. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.
Review RateThe best Hummingbird feeder ever!I have been looking for a nice wide mouthed to fill hummingbird feeder for years. I got this late in the season, but so far I love it. The ease of use and the super ease of filling it up easily and without any leaking is PERFECT. And it is very nice looking according to my wife. I am very happy with my purchase.
Review RateLeaking feederThis feeder is not worth the money... Leaking
Review RateAmazon ReviewWe have had similar push-pull feeders and like this one even better. The quality is good. The amount it holds is better for us than the 16 ounce (less likely to spoil before it is empty so less waste). This model is also prettier to look at. The hummingbirds are using it easily.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis top loading feeder works far beyond my expectations. After reading the reviews, I was worried. However, I read the instructions and put it together in less than a minute. It works perfectly!
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe hummers seem to love this feeder (they've been there all day!), and the perches are really cute. We've had no problems with "sharp barbs" as reported by some other reviewers.If the feeder is leaking, try taking it apart and starting again. Mine has kept a strong seal for two years. We have also received good support from Perky-Pet in the past; they replaced an earlier feeder that broke upon first use (different design).Finally, there is no need to buy food or use red dye. The "recipe" is 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. This will hold about a cup at a time; I make 2.5 cups and store some in the fridge (.5 cup sugar and 2 cups water). You do want to change the solution regularly, and this feeder makes it easy to do so because it will hold the seal until you unpop it, meaning you don't get sugar water all over your kitchen floor or deck.Would definitely buy this again.
Review Ratepesky beesI have one of these hummingbird feeders and am having a terible time with bees swarming all around the area where it pulls up to open the suction. nothing seems to help!!
Review RateAmazon ReviewFeeders came way before they were due. I no sooner had it up when the hummers were slurping from it. They were packed well; and had no trouble with the filling them and hanging them.

Filling Your Feeder:
Here are a few things to review before filling the feeder:
- Check to make sure the base compartments are securely tightened
- Push container into base to close ports to prevent leakage
- Unscrew to cap to fill with nectar
- Screw cap back on securely to form an airtight seal.
- We recommend keeping the feeder in the closed position until you get to the spot where you want to hang it.
- To open nectar reservoir - hold base with one hand and pull up on the container with the other to open ports for feeding. Your feeder is now ready.
Please note: if the cap does not fit securely on to the feeder and you see a gap between the cap and the feeder, the seal may be the issue. Please contact our Consumer Care Department at 1.800.800.1819 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a new outer ring for you cap.
To replace the outer ring, push firmly on the center of the cap to pop out the middle. Replace with new outer ring.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I'm new to Top Fill feeders, are there tips on filling for beginners?
A: Yes, follow the steps below.
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.
