That’s why we’ve designed the Pinch-Waist Hummingbird Feeder with a convenient wide-mouth bottle. It makes filling easier, resulting in fewer spills as you pour nectar. Plus, the crystal clear glass allows you to monitor nectar levels at a glance.Accommodates Multiple Birds Complete with four flower-shaped ports and comfortable perches, the Perky-Pet® Pinch-Waist Glass Hummingbird Feeder will easily accommodate multiple hummingbirds at the same time.

Fortunately, our built-in bee guards and ant moat provide an effective line of defense against these unwanted pests. The bee guards keep bees at bay, while hummingbirds can still easily access the nectar.

To make that easier, this feeder disassembles completely for effortless cleaning. Remove the ant moat, base and bottle with ease – even the built-in bee guards come apart! In addition, the wide-mouth design allows you to access hard-to-reach spots of the bottle. Remember to clean your feeder at least once per week with a mild soap and water solution to prevent mildew buildup.How to Clean the Pinch-Waist Hummingbird Feeder Watch this video and see for yourself just how easy it is to keep the Perky-Pet® Pinch-Waist Glass Hummingbird Feeder looking sparkling clean. Your hummingbirds will thank you for your efforts!“I LOVE THIS FEEDER! I replaced the old style of this feeder for this updated style and I'm so glad I did! The wider opening allows for cleaning with a regular bottlebrush (the old style had a narrow neck and was difficult to clean) and the bee guards that open for cleaning are great. I like the size of this feeder because the birds eat the nectar so quickly it makes sure I am cleaning them every few days, which prevents the mold that is harmful to the hummers."

Review RateSolution for leaks & dripsI pulled the flowers outward as far as they would go and still remain on the feeder. Next I turn the flowers until the longer end of the slanted end is on the bottom. I can fill my cinched waist feeders full with no leaks nor drips.
Hello. I have always been a Perky Pet fan and have made many purchases. However, I am struggling to keep my old pinched waist glass feeders going. I am very puzzled as to why you changed the design and why after several years of complaints you continue to not rectify the problem. I had my new one 1 week before I gave up as it dripped constantly. I have had one of my old ones 10 years and never a drip. Why can't you make us all happy and go back to the old design?Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWaste of money
The worst feeder, I have bought. The wide mouth does make it easy for cleaning. But food leaks out with in 2-3 days. Because of this leaks it draws more bees. Bring back the feeder with the old feeder that has the white insert in the feeder. That was the best feeder you had, but discontinued. I would rate this product as a ZERO! Do not buy. Waste of money.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear that this feeder leaked! When hanging feeders, we recommend locations out of direct sunlight, as the heat causes nectar to expand and leak out of the ports as you experienced. These feeders are covered by our 30-day guarantee and a 1-year replacement policy. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for assistance, we're happy to help.

I have had no problems with my 2 new feeders, I love them! Do not leak, easy to clean, & so far no problems with the bee guards, as stated by others. Maybe I got an older model? I purchased from Walmart, last 2 on the shelf.
My hummingbirds love this since I removed the yellow covers. I tried it with two covers still on, and they always chose the holes without the covers, so I removed the rest and now they use all 4.
Review RateBest Hummingbird Feeder
I've been feeding migrating hummingbirds for over ten years. This is my favorite feeder - just the right size and easy to clean.The bee guards really work, and the ability to add water to the cap/top eliminates ants. If you feed hummingbirds you must commit to cleaning /disinfecting on a regular basis to prevent bacteria and fungus from harming birds. I clean feeders every two to three days with a mixture of 1:3 vinegar and hot water.
Review RateFeeders leak..not as good as the older design
First I want to say that our family are fans of Perky Pet products...until now! We have used your Hummingbird products for over a decade. Recently we purchased 2 new glass Favored Pinch-Waist feeders to replace our weather worn older units. What a mistake! The older design had an opaque plastic insert in the distribution well. They worked great in the sun as well as the shade. Never a problem. I used to fill them up almost to the top with no leak. Now we're told to put them in shade and to fill them half way. Still leaks. Don't have receipts because I bought them a few months ago to use for the summer. What a waste! What was the reasoning behind the design change in the first place? Just leave the product alone. I've already called and spoke to a nice rep by the name of Mike.Response From Perky-Pet®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreedy manufacturer
It is so disappointing to read through 3+ years’ worth of negative reviews on this website (and others) discussing the faulty design feature of the newer wide-mouth model. It is also insulting to see the copy/paste responses from the Perky Pet intern stating, “Sorry. We’ll take this feedback to our Product Managers.” That response may have been true back in 2016, however it’s now 2019 and nothing in the design has changed. It’s now obvious that even despite the high return rate and complaints, Perky Pet must still be turning a profit on this piece of garbage. There are no “product managers” reading these reviews. What a shame.Response From Perky-Pet®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
We can assure you that we take all of the feedback provided by our customers very seriously. The valuable information that our customers provide in reviews, emails, phone calls, and more help us make our products better.

Review RateDont ourchase this feeder, wasting your money.
Appears to be a good humming bird feeder until you add food, it leaks like a screen door. The perches are angled too low and the food drips out of the feeder. The wide mouth is good and glass container. Purchased from our local Ace Hardware. Seems to be very few good humming bird feeders on the market, we have one similar but the perches are at a greater angle preventing food from dripping out. One out of 6 feeders that really work.
