Unique Top-Fill Design For Easy Filling

No more messes and no more spills! Our unique feeder features patented Top-Fill technology so that filling is never a hassle. Simply remove the lid and pour up to 12 oz of nectar into the convenient wide-mouth opening to get your feeder up and running – there’s no need to invert the bottle.

Feeding Ports Inspired By Nature

Hummingbirds are accustomed to imbibing nectar from flowers. That’s why we’ve developed this feeder with soft, flexible flower-inspired feeding ports to offer a more natural look and feel. The color and flower shape are perfect for attracting hummers, while the five ports ensure there’s enough room for multiple birds to dine simultaneously.

Keep Insects Out

With this feeder, there’s no need for an added bee guard. The specially designed feeding ports feature a long tapered “stem” that prevents bees from gaining access to the nectar, while hummingbirds will have no trouble at all! It’s a natural way of keeping out pesky bees. There’s also a built-in moat to prevent ants. Simply fill the cap with water to create a barrier that ants can’t pass.

Removable Perches

Each of the five feeding stations features a removable perch, so you can hang your feeder with or without them. By using the feeder with the perches on, you can give your hummingbird friends a place to rest while they dine. Or, if your hummingbird feeders are frequently plagued by woodpeckers or other unwanted birds, you can use the feeder without perches. Hummingbirds can hover while they feed, but other birds can’t.

locking channel minimizes leaks

Locking Channel Minimizes Leaks

If you’ve ever walked outside to find drops of nectar on the ground from a leaky hummingbird feeder, you know how frustrating it can be. Not only is it a waste of nectar, but it's a mess as well. Issues like those are exactly why we’ve created this feeder with a locking channel in the base. It creates a nice tight seal so there’s no more leaks!

Note: Feeders may loosen during shipment. Before filling for the first time, tighten the bottle onto the base to ensure no leaking.

Comes Apart For Easy Cleaning

Hummingbirds prefer to visit fresh, clean feeding stations. To make that easier, this feeder disassembles for effortless cleaning. Easily separate the base, bottle and lid. You can even pull apart the base and remove the feeding ports and perches! Remember to clean your feeder at least once per week with a mild soap and water solution to prevent mildew buildup; clean more often in hot weather.

We're sorry to hear that! Be sure to check that the base is tight, and that the bottle neck threads line up correctly to help prevent leaking. For best results, we recommend hanging the feeder in the shade as well as out of high traffic or windy areas. If the feeder continues to leak after trying these tips and tricks, please contact us directly at 855-737-5973 for warranty assistance.
I. Fixing a leaky Perky Pet feeder.

I. too had problems with leaks that were messy and wasteful. I began to investigate and found a video on YouTube showing how to clean a Perky Pet hummingbird feeder. It was an older model, but had the same design as my Pinch-Waist feeders. The first time I cleaned the feeder I was not aware the float device could be separated for cleaning. Yesterday, I saw a video of how to do that. So I did. I did not pay attention to the placement of the float. When I put it together, it leaked like a sieve. I took it apart again, but did not look at the float. And got the same results. According to the video, the float has a flat piece in the center on one side and a very small button-like piece on the other. The video explained that the flat piece is designed to face the top of the feeder and acts as a valve to regulate the water flow as the birds drink. I had the button side facing up and it was not big enough to cover the access from the reservoir. Ergo, lots of leaking. When I took the leaking feeder apart, I saw the float facing the wrong direction. I turned it around, put it all back together, filled it and put it outside along with a second feeder that I put together correctly. And not a drop came out of either feeder. I had much frustration thinking I was going to have to buy more feeders in order to supply the growing numbers of Hummers gathering everyday near the season's end. The YouTube video is listed as - Perky Pet 9109 ISR Crystal Top-Fill Glass hummingbird Feeder Review.

The hummingbirds seem to love this feeder however, I do not. I have purchased this feeder 5 times and every time the bottom splits. It’s such a shame too!

Oh no! We are so sorry to hear about this. To help prevent this from happening, we recommend making sure not to secure the base onto the feeder too tightly. While we do not have replacement parts available separately, it is good to know that the feeder is covered under a 1-year replacement policy. Please give us a call at 855-737-5973 for assistance.

Thank you for this feedback. We are sorry to hear that the feeder is leaking in this manner. Inside the base of the feeder should be a foam disk or 'float' that helps prevent leaking. Our feeders have a one year replacement policy. Reach out to us via our Contact Us page with any questions.

It leaks. I lose all the nectar in about 5 days. I have tried tightening and finding the source of the leak.

I have two small pinch waist top filling hummingbird feeders. It took me a while to realise that you really have to screw the bottom of the bottle into the base, ensuring you've done it tightly. This ensures the base is secure to the bottle. As for the ant moat, don't use it. I put olive oil on the hanging hook and it's never failed me.

Leaks bad

Leaks bad through the feeding holes. I dont know what the science is that should be keeping the water from leaking out those holes but it is not working. Full feeder drains in 24 hours. It is a slow drip but i have caught it doing it. Several responses to dripping problems talk about a foam float. I have not seen one in my unit.

I love this feeder and hummingbirds prefer it over my other one. I broke the bottle on the first one so had to get another one. Mine did leak at one time but it was because I overfilled it. Would recommend this product.

I tried two of these feeders and would not recommend. I liked the top feeder, but it leaked like a sieve!! My husband tried glueing the bottom parts together, but it still leaked! I am going to try another brand and another feeder. I have been feeding hummers for over 20 years and was looking forward to the ease of a top fill. No more.
