Review Rateyellow jackets liked it
3 weeks ago I bought this feeder and an all red Dr. JB feeder just to try to discourage the yellow jackets. The hummingbirds went to the Dr JB feeder and the yellow jackets swarmed the perky-pet feeder. I returned the Perky-pet feeder and purchased another Dr JB feeder. Perky-pet, I would suggest going with an all red base.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Rateneeds to be reengineered.....not happy with this feeder
nectar does not go into the feeder unless you shake it. Disappointed as I purchased 4 of them:-(Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
The time taken to provide this feedback is appreciated! This experience could occur if too much a vacuum seal is created between the nectar reservoir and the base. We recommend loosening them slightly to allow the nectar to flow freely to the base.

Review RateDon't care for the new design.
We bought this new feeder and I must agree with other reviewers that the distance from the perch to the feeding tube is too long for my Costas and others to sip from. I find they simply fly to the original glass tube feeders. When I removed one of the yellow feeding ports, they gravitated to the ease of that open port, but then it defeats the purpose of a bee guard. Someone did not take into account for the smaller hummingbirds.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We appreciate these comments and have shared the information with our Product Managers.
To help the hummingbirds take advantage of the feeder, we recommend removing established feeders until this new feeder is being utilized. Since hummingbirds are creatures of habit, they will tend to feed from feeders they are used to rather than continually using a new feeder in their environment.

Review Rateno nectar
It feels repetitive.... but these are impossible for the birds to get nectar from. The length of the lip on the glass jar creates a vacuum and once the initial juice is gone from the tray, unless you are there to burp it, there is nothing for them. AND in the spring when the babies come through, they are too small to go from the tip of the new flowers, through the bee guard length and come even close to the nectar. PP must have robin size hummers they test these on. Figure this out!!Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! It sounds as if the feeder has too much a vacuum seal. We recommend loosening the bottle from the base very slightly to allow for a proper nectar flow.

Review Rategood feeder mostly
Feeder is really great but it leaks and attracts bees. It is not in the sun so I don't know why it developed leak.
Review RatePlastic faulty where s hook goes!
I liked the old 209. I have now had two of the new 209 fall and shatter glass all over and my dog got cut. The plastic top little eye where the s hook goes cracked on both and you couldn't tell. Then they fall to the ground break and put other animals in harms way.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGood feeder, overall
Positive: good capacity, easy to clean, hummingbirds like the perches, glass container (plastic containers do not hold up well in our area, due to intense sun) Negative: it also attracts yellow jackets, as it leaks. I’ve seen the comments about keeping the feeder out of the sun, but that’s not possible in our yard.
Review RateLove these wide mouth feeders and so do Hummers
I have 5 feeders out on front porch and some evenings I have had soooo many Hummers that they're 2 eating out of one flower port! So do the math on that one...not to mention all the hummers zipping around in the yard and at the woods' edge. I found this feeder with the wide mouth and flowers to the outside to be much easier to clean. I have one of the other models (small opening and flower ports to the inside) a lot harder to keep clean. I have to say, the hummers that come here (and there's a lot! which I love!) have no preference as to either of these feeders. I have conservatively gone through 125lbs of sugar this season so far. I will say, my husband purchased 2 feeders from Tractor Supply and not Perky Pet ( with 3 ports that look like flowers) for our back deck and only 2 have shown any interest in those feeders. Glad to see I can buy additional yellow flowers. My son and his girlfriend came out to visit and they couldn't believe how many hummingbirds I get..She said she had only ever seen one or two before...not 20-30 at one time. Lol
Review Rateleaky feeder
I bought two of these feeders. One leaks and one does not. I love how easy they are to clean. Style needs to be modified to keep from leaking. I have both old and new style, the hummingbirds love both. I have had the newer style over a year so no replacement for me.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! When used as directed, this feeder should not leak. We recommend keeping the feeder out of the direct sunlight and hung level. Forming a vacuum seal by quickly inverting the feeder upright after filling is also very important to prevent the feeder from leaking.

Review RateLeaks and bottom falling off.
I have two of these feeders for two years after the first year they developed the same problem of leaking and bottoms falling off. After a few frustrating trial ideas I found that wrapping one layer of duct tape around the glass threads then attach the bottom you can tighten it up so it won’t fall off or leak. I also use a dry towel to hold the glass for a good grip, then tighten the base to the glass, then flip it over fast for the vacuum to form. I tip it to get the bubbles out of the base by letting a few drops seap out of the flower feed ports. You will probably need to change the tape at the next fill and cleaning but it does work. I’ve had a successful season with this modification.
