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.

The feeder is built of a shatter-resistant clear plastic feeding tube, which allows you to easily monitor nectar levels.

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.

Review RateHunk of Plastic Junk?
Agree with all about the label. I used some essential oil mixture to get it off and didn't hurt the feeder much. It was a little difficult to fill, since you had to do it hanging, instead of being able to take it down and fill it in the house. have had it up a few days and I don't think there has been a bird near it. I know they have long beaks, but I am not sure they could reach the food if they came. I filled it half full as the instructions say, but I feel the normal feeder has the juice in closer proximity to the flower feeders. The birds I have had liked to perch on my other feeder. No perches here. I too, looked at this more than once before getting sucked into buying it. I am always shopping for a bargain and a feed store had these marked down, No wonder!Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Perky-Pet® has a long history of producing high-quality and reliable bird feeders and products. We apologize for this experience and would be happy to provide assistance.
Hummingbirds have long bills and tongues that can reach deep into flowers to find nectar. Our feeders are designed to provide a similar experience for the hummingbirds.
Birds are creatures of habit and can take some time to become accustomed to a new feeder. Temporarily removing other established feeders can aid in the transition. Our feeders are covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review RateLabel problem
The label is impossible to get off without leaving a sticky, cloudy film on the tube. I will find out if it effects the feeding of the hummers. Please do something about the label!Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for the time taken to provide this feedback, Roger, we apologize for this experience.
The label should remove with mild soap and water. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review RateDo not buy
Do not buy this feeder. It's nothing but a mess, a hassle, and attracts ants. The hummingbirds never go to it. Bringing it inside to empty and clean was dfficult as the feed leaked when it was being taken down, any time it's off level of course. Cleaning it was a chore as it grew mold on the inside of the tube. I tried to run a washcloth on the inside and that broke the ports. Wish I could get a credit to buy another type of feeder. This was a waste of money. :(Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratea nice addition to my dozen feeders
The fact the label was placed on the feeder was maddening. It took a lot of soaking, peeling, re-soaking etc to finally get it off. And where it was, remains cloudy. The feeder itself definitely takes more work to hang than any other feeder I have. I hung it from branches of a tree so the adjustable straps came in handy since the branches aren't level. The hummers love it and there is constant activity at it. But I have dozens of hummers in my yard due to the huge number of feedersI put out so maybe thats why. The ants haven't found it and once they do I have decide how to face that challenge since I'm not hanging it from the recommended brackets. I was lucky I only paid 15.00 on sale at Tractor Supply.
Review RateDON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
I WANTED ONE FOR SO LONG. WE FINALLY HAD SOME SPARE MONEY. I PURCHASED 2 ft Long. WE ARE SO DISAPPOINTED, IT ATTRACTS ANTS BUT NOT HUMMINGBIRDS!!! I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO KNOW WHY HUMMER'S WILL NOT GO TO THIS KIND OF FEEDER. I HAVE 20+ HUMMINGBIRDS EVERYDAY THEY LOVE TO EAT.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are very sorry to hear about this experience and would like the opportunity to help.
Birds are creatures of habit and can take some time to become accustomed to a new feeder. To aid in the transition, we recommend removing established feeders temporarily. When ants discover a hummingbird feeder, our AntGuard® (see link below) can be placed between the hangers and the feeder.

Review Ratepoor design'
I have had this feeder for 2 years and the birds don't use it. Plus it takes a lot of food at one time that gets thrown away quickly. Would not buy this again.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
This feeder takes about 2 cups (16 ounces) of nectar. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) so we can better understand the situation and provide assistance.
The label is impossible to remove. I just spent an hour trying to get the label off and it breaks in my hands. You don't want to know what I said next. Very disappointed in this feeder. I'm Not A engineer, but I would have placed a label folded inside the feeder just like the instructions &mounting string are packed. Wasted $20 on this.

Review RateBuy at your own risk
I feel that same way as some -- the 'adjustable' lines are a chore to get the thing leveled and that a 'level line' would have made it much easier. As for buy your brackets - it would seem you ought to send those free of charge for those of us who bought the feeder. It would be good customer service.Response From Perky-Pet®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDon't bother - what a waste
Complete waste of money - could not get it level no matter what I did or how I adjusted it. When it dumped the contents on me - I threw it out without a second glance. Bought a new vertical feeder.Response From Perky-Pet®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the time taken to share this feedback. To help ensure that this feeder remains level, we recommend our new brackets that allow the feeder to be mounted to a window or deck. They are now available on our website and can be found <a href="https://www.perkypet.com/perky-pet-bird-feeder-mounting-brackets-8203">here</a>.

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.
