Cleaning: Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. We recommend disinfecting your nectar feeders every three to five days, or more frequently if you notice your nectar has become cloudy. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a bird feeder brush to brush away grime inside the feeder.

More Birds sent me two of these feeders as replacement for another brand I had purchased that leaked. I had really liked the look of those feeders (old-fashioned type bottle, metal capped plastic base, metal flowers), and was really disappointed at how badly they performed. Well, I'm so glad that happened now, else I wouldn't have been able to try these! I have had these in use for a week now, and they are very easy to clean (SO important!). I particularly love that the plastic base and glass bottle are both clear, making it extremely easy to see where mold might be growing. So far, these have not leaked one bit. As for the birds themselves, I have had several visit the feeder so far. It's lovely to see them sitting on the perches and having a bit of a rest while drinking the nectar (the sugar/water ratio is helpfully etched on the bottom of the feeder). I initially liked the old-fashioned bottle look of some of the other feeders, but the swirled glass of this feeder catches the light in such a lovely way - and again, being clear, it's very easy to see if the mixture is getting cloudy or if there's mold anywhere. Also, with a brown plastic base (which I've always had), you can't see the birds actually feeding...with this one, it's fun to see the ripples on the surface of the nectar as the birds drink. So happy with these - I may have to order a couple more!

All of Droll Yankee's products are top notch and great quality. I will never buy another feeder from any other manufacturer.
I purchased in pet stores several feeders with your note inside -- BUT they were different and have plastic bee (and squirrel) protection. Why are you not advertising on your web site such outstanding hummingbird feeders? It looks that your web-site might be out-of-date...
Hi Boris, Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. It sounds like you may have this confused with a different item or brand. Unfortunately, none of our hummingbird feeders are squirrel-proof. We hope this information helps!
My wife bought me this feeder for Christmas. The squirrels Drink all the liquid from feeder. They clean it out within hours of filling it. Is there anything I can do to prevent this.
Hello John, Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. Squirrels are so clever and relentless and it seems sometimes that they�re smarter than most other animals. One of the biggest challenges to feeding wild birds�our own challenge too�is deterring squirrels. We work on a daily basis to create quality products and cultivate good advice that will help us all win this fight. The key to successfully keeping a feeder squirrel-proof is its placement. Squirrels are agile and are able to jump up to 8ft horizontally and 4ft vertically. For this reason, we recommend that feeders be placed 8ft away from any structures that they can climb on so that they do not reach across to access the feeding holes. It can be helpful to trim back and prune any nearby bushes or branches within 12ft of a feeder. We also recommend that feeders be placed higher than 4ft off the ground, preventing the squirrels from jumping and grabbing onto the bottom. If you are using a hook or pole, we recommend that the hook have at least a 16in distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7 am � 4:30 pm Mon-Fri (EST). We hope this helps you get back to feeding birds, not squirrels!
