Perky-Pet® Hummerbar® Hummingbird Feeder—2 ft
Perky-Pet®'s horizontal-hanging 2 Foot Hummerbar® Hummingbird Feeding Tube offers a revolutionary way to feed more hummingbirds at one time.
Nectar filled hummerbar® is a 2-foot plastic tube offering 22 feeding ports and, when compared to other hummingbird feeders, is easy to clean. Patented feeder hangs horizontally while delivering plenty of nectar for hummingbirds. Feeder ports are made of plastic molded in red, a color proven to attract hummers. Each port is spaced just right to allow hummingbirds to feed side-by-side!
The feeder is built of a clear plastic feeding tube, which allows you to easily monitor nectar levels.
With Perky-Pet®'s Hummerbar®, you get the ultimate hummingbird feeder!
How to hang the Hummerbar®
- Remove an end cap.
- Remove nectar-pouring funnel from tube.
- Replace the end cap.
- Select an outdoor area to hang the Hummerbar®.
- Hang using loops at end of hanging cords—make sure the feeder is low enough to access for refilling and cleaning.
- Level the Hummerbar® by adjusting its cords. Slide cord locks up and down as needed to level.
- Remove rubber stopper from nectar basin and insert funnel.
- Fill about 1⁄4th full with Perky-Pet® hummingbird nectar. Compare each end by eye. If nectar is pooling to one side, then adjust cord locks again.
- Once nectar is evenly distributed, continue to fill nectar basin until half full. Do not overfill.
- Remove funnel, insert rubber stopper.
The best hummingbird nectar uses a 100% sucrose formula, which hummers prefer because it is easy to digest. All Perky-Pet® Hummingbird Nectar uses a 100% sucrose formula.
Never fill the Hummerbar® more than half-full. Overfilling the Hummerbar® can cause the feeder to leak.
If a 2-foot Perky-Pet® Hummerbar® isn't enough for your hummers, then try the the 4-foot version. With 44 feeder ports on the 4-foot version, you can feed even more hummingbirds.

Easy to put together, could not get the sticker residue off. They make removable stickers. Tried everything I could think of. Will see if the hummers like it or not .Response From Perky-Pet®Kristen : Consumer Relations Representative
Thanks for your feedback! We have changed the sticker so it's easier to remove for future buyers.
Review RateLabel removal deters use
Not sure yet. It took forever to get that label off. So we do not yet have it up. Realllllly annoyed about that as i had to use goo gone on it. Not good for the birds. Why don’t you have a paper one that slides in and is easily removable. If we ever buy something from perky pet again I will check that first. Not worth buying because of the label. That lack of foresight does not bode well for how this will work.Response From Perky-Pet®Kristen : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We have updated the label for this product to make it easier to remove for future buyers.
Review RateNo Hummingbirds yet at this feeder.
We bought one of these feeders at the end of season last year but just put it up a couple weeks ago for the first time. So far, the hummers just check out the bottom of the ends and go to the other feeders. Our other feeders all have yellow centres so I am going to put a touch of yellow paint on the petals of the red flowers on the Hummer Bar to see if this helps. It seems to be a good idea for a feeder but needs some improvements. I only gave it one star as the Hummingbirds won't try it. Then I changed it to two stars as we do have a couple of woodpeckers that seem to like to lap up the syrup that leaks out when there is a wind blowing.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thanks for taking the time to provide us with this feedback! Birds are creatures of habit, and it can take them time to start using a new feeder. We recommend removing established feeders until the new one is being used. We've shared your comments with our Product Managers.

Review RateHate it
This is the most ridiculous design I have ever tried to work with. I got this for Mother's Day and the first problem was getting the label off the plastic. Really, can you not use a glue that peels off easily? Then when I put water in the tube, it would not balance and ran out both ends. I hate this thing.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateHummers not feeding.
Have a question . I live in east central Mississippi . I have had the hummer bar for about 3 weeks and have not had the first hummer feed from it. Has anyone else had this to happen ? The hummers have visited the older feeders just not this one. The label has not been removed ,would this have anything to do with that ?Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for your feedback! Birds are creatures of habit, we recommend removing established feeders until the new one is being used consistently. The label should not affect the hummingbirds visiting the feeder. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for assistance, we're happy to help!
Review RateMy hummers LOVE the Bar, but I hate not being able to get replacement caps.
I love the feeder, but because of a few things, I can't give it a perfect score. First was cleaning the huge label that was glued to the tube. That took more time, then getting the feeder up & filled. It wasn't that hard to setup. I used a step ladder and eyeballed the level, it was easier with a small amount of fluid in the tube. I also used my own funnel. That tiny little funnel, they give you, is a waste of plastic. Now my second complaint is, after using the feeder for a season, we got it back out this spring. And yes, we cleaned it up before storage. But now it leaks from the end caps, they must lose their effectiveness to seal over time. It would be nice to be able to buy replacement parts. So instead, I'm buying another Hummerbar, the 4ft this time. Only because it is cheaper (on sale) than buying another 2ft bar. But I still would like to be able to get replacement caps, because this will happen again, of the end caps getting dry and leaking. I won't continue to purchase a new Hummerbar, year after year, just because the caps are no good after a season. So I would highly suggest offering replacement caps.
Review RateNot worth the money
Bought one and it lasted for awhile..then leaked, not even a year in. They replaced it. Now that one is leaking, again, not even a year in. Not worth the price now I don't think!!Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateSitting on the fence still
When it freezes outdoors we bring our hummers in at night. How do you bring in this feeder without loosing the nectar?Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
This feeder is designed to remain level to evenly distribute the nectar along the tube. Moving it may cause some spillage. To reduce this, we recommend pulling off one of the rubber end caps and draining the nectar into a container.
Please feel free to contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
Review RateEasy enough
The product is great. I don't understand all the negativity. My wife brought it home, I put it up in a couple of minutes. She made the food and poured it in. It's a little tricky but no different than pouring in a normal funnel. I leveled it by eye, didn't use a level. It's not rocket science. I sit on the porch every morning and watch hummingbirds come and go enjoying the feeder. My wife and I and our B&B guests enjoy the birds and the feeder. My only question is how far can it get down before they can't reach it and I have to refill it. The only complaint I have is that little booger that tries to bully the other hummingbirds. I can't fix that though.
Review RateWould not purchase again due to maximum effort required to remove label.
If you order these you will need lots of Goo-Gone and 30 minutes of labor for a 2' feeder to remove the label. They are very large and very difficult to get off the feeders. They look great without the labels!

Hummingbird Feeders - FAQs
Q: What else do I need to know about hanging a Hummerbar®?
A: Make sure the Hummerbar® is level. This will be the key to enjoying your Hummerbar®. If the feeder isn't level, then nectar can ooze out of its feeder ports. The best way to level the feeder is to use a "construction level" as you work on placing it. Start by leveling it by sight, then use the tool to help you make additional adjustments.
Use the easy-sliding locks on each cord to fix the feeder into place. If those locks stay in place, your Hummerbar® should be "just right" every time.
Q: Should I "test" my Hummerbar® to see if it's level?
A: Instead of dealing with sticky nectar, try testing it with some water. After leveling it, pour some water into the Hummerbar®'s nectar basin. If the liquid distributes evenly along the Hummerbar®, it's ready to take nectar. If the water pools in one end, you need to work on leveling the Hummerbar® again. Once it appears to be level, dump the water and add your Perky-Pet® nectar!
Q: Do you fill the Hummerbar® to the top?
A: Never fill your Hummerbar® all the way to the top. First, you should only fill the Hummerbar® with as much nectar as your hummingbirds will eat in two days. Secondly, you should only fill about half of the Hummerbar® nectar basin—any higher and you could risk spilling nectar. Don't worry about the hummers though. The basin size was set to match the length of a hummingbird's tongue!
Q: What's the cleaning schedule for my Hummerbar®?
A: Clean the Hummerbar® every two days to keep mold from forming. On especially cool days, you can let it sit a day or so longer.
Q: Why is nectar leaking from the feeder ports?
A: Two things could cause your Hummerbar® to leak from its feeder ports. Did you overfill it? Remember to never fill a Hummerbar® more than half-full. Also, are you sure the feeder is level? This could cause leakage out of one end of the Hummerbar®. Try re-leveling it.
Q: Why is nectar leaking from the end caps?
A: If this is happening, just try pushing the end caps fully into the Hummerbar®. Each end cap should seal around the end of the Hummerbar®. After any leak, you may want to wipe the feeder down with a wet cloth.
Q: Should I take my Hummerbar® down when bad weather is coming?
A: High winds could cause your Hummerbar® to start swinging. The sloshing action could cause nectar to leak out.
Q: I want to bring even more hummingbirds. Any tips?
A: You can bring more hummingbirds to your yard by adding hummingbird-friendly flowers, including zinnias, butterfly bushes, columbines and salvias. Also make sure you have a good source of water for hummingbirds and other birds.
