Window Hummingbird Feeder Uses Your Bottles, Garden Decor, Home Decor, Suction Cups
COOLEST THING EVER! Now you can turn your own recycled bottles into the best hummingbird feeder ever!
Make sure the feeder stopper fits into the spout. (Avoid bottles with too tight a fit as it may damage the stopper).
Check the bottom of the bottle to make sure it doesn't have a deep punt. Flat bottoms work best.
Clean the surface and allow it to dry, then peel off the film from the suction cup to expose the sticky surface.
Center the suction cup and push it firmly against the bottom of the bottle, making sure to push out the air bubbles.
Fill the bottle with Nectar and hang it in a shaded spot.
Avoid using heavy bottles and ones with a deep punt. To enhance realism, you may choose to add a few drops of 100% Natural food coloring to the nectar.
There are many types of hummingbird feeders to choose from, and birds that dislike one specific shape or size of feeder may be attracted to another. Use a variety of feeders spread throughout your yard to attract the most hummingbirds.
Consider both glass and plastic feeders, as well as designs with just one feeding port or multiple access points. Feeders with and without perches may also appeal to different hummingbirds. Different feeder sizes can also accommodate different feeding preferences.
Position Feeders Properly
To keep hummingbirds safe from window collisions or from getting their delicate bills stuck in window screens, feeders should be positioned either very close to the window (great for visibility) or at least five feet away.
Placing feeders in an area free from breezes and out of direct sunlight minimizes spilled nectar and slows fermentation to keep nectar fresh and safe.
To help the birds find your feeders, place them near nectar-producing flowers or other colorful accents in your yard, particularly red decorations that will catch these birds' eyes.
Clean Feeders Regularly
It is important to clean hummingbird feeders at least two or three times per week. Even more frequent cleanings may be necessary in hot weather when the nectar can ferment quickly. Fermented nectar can cause mold that is fatal to hummingbirds, and sour food will not attract as many birds.
When cleaning a hummingbird feeder, take great care to thoroughly sanitize all nooks and crannies to get rid of all mold, fungus, old nectar, or crystallized sugar. Soaking a disassembled feeder in very hot water can be an easy way to remove sticky residue.
Hummingbirds feed excessively just prior to migration in order to build up energy reserves for their long flights. Keep hummingbird feeders clean and filled throughout the late fall and early winter so all migrating birds can be fed, and place feeders out the next year early in the spring to attract the first returning hummingbirds.
