Use a bird feeder brush to brush away grime inside the feeder.

- Suction Cup with Screw
Because of leaking along edge where unit fits onto suction cup bar, I have not been able to use this. I cannot find how to replace this item. Please advise.
Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Window Hummer 3 Red Hummingbird Feeder. We are sorry to hear that your feeder is leaking. It is normal for a little bit of nectar to spill out when filling and hanging the feeder, or when it is tilted. Fill the reservoir no higher than the perch with nectar. Overfilling will cause the nectar to spill out from the ports. If you still experience leaks from your hummingbird feeder, it is very possible that your feeder has a crack. Check for any cracks on both the feeder and feeding ports. Additionally, placing your feeder in direct sunlight can cause leakage because the sunlight will expand the plastic. It is recommended to place your feeder in partial sunlight. If you have any additional questions about leaks coming from your hummingbird feeder, 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. If in fact the feeder needs to be replaced they can assist you with that as well. Thank you for flying with our flock!
Over the past 18 years or so, I've purchased some WH3 window feeders. Never had a problem......Untill these last 2 I purchased within the past year. Both of them started leaking where the red and clear plastic seams come together. Also, they do not sit level when installed in their suction cup holder. They hang at a downward angle in front. Nothing like they used to be.....Ouality has gone!
Hi Larry, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Window Hummer 3 Red Hummingbird Feeder. We are sorry to hear that the last two of these feeders you purchased are not functioning properly. The feeders should not leak, as long as they basin top and bottom or screwed together correctly and as long as the feeder is only filled halfway. As far as the feeder hanging downward, this could be due to the weight and the feeder being filled to much. We would be happy to send you another feeder, free of charge. We will reach out to you via email to get that order placed for you. We appreciate your business and look forward to getting this resolved for you! Thank you for flying with our flock!
Got this for my mother as her first hummingbird feeder. I like several elements of this feeder. First and foremost, made in USA and still a competitive price and quality. Instructions are good. I also like that the it old take a small amount of the liquid food / sugar water. My mom makes it herself and this allows her to not waste much liquid / food when she regularly changes and washes the feeder. I have been amazed at how quickly the hummingbirds spotted it! The 2nd day she pyt it up we saw our first one :) My mom isn’t the most handy / mechanically inclinde person in the world, and she was quickly able to instal it. I also like the design. It’s simple, small and when cleaning or filling the feeder, the suction cups stay on her window and she easily removes the rest of the unit. It seems simple, smart, well made and the hummingbirds seem to love it! (...and made in the USA from a “healthier” type of plastic.) Oh yeah, having not installed it myself I assumed that the little birds would eat/ drink from the center / top of the feeder. It wasn’t until I saw a hummingbird feeding that I realized there are little plastic flowers in/ on the red plastic top-sides. These flower shapes show the hummingbirds where they can access the food (by sticking their straw-like beak and drink up the liquid). It’s funny to say, but the hummingbirds understood this design instantly. You could say that the hummingbirds are the ones that showed me how this feeder actually works. My mom likes it so much that I plan on ordering her at least 2 more. (& I have looked around at the other feeders available, and I’ll still be ordering more of this same exact feeder. She also said if she were buying more feeders for herself, she would order more of this same item. Ants...? The other reviewer said they had trouble with ants. We have not experienced this. My mom does get a lot of ants at her place, but she hasn’t gotten a single ant (or any bug) with this feeder. I would think there are many factors at play here - most of which I’m unaware of. I do know it has not been an issue for her. If ants become an issue in the future, I’ll try and remember to update my review.) Recommended...I’ll be ordering more!! Thanks :)
This product needs a redesign, to include a moat to keep ants out. I have had it for years and am about to completely give up on it. It fills with tiny ants so quickly, even with bee guards on the inside feeding tips, requiring nearly daily change of hummer sugar water to keep it clean for the hummers. I have begun to think of it as a lovely little ant trap. Please redesign this- it's a great idea that needs improvement. Also, while you are at it, a third suction cup would secure it to glass better. I have found it hanging from one suction cup, drained, perhaps after an oriole has tried to feed on it.
Hello Patty, Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees and taking the time to offer your suggestions. We are always looking for ways to improve the birding experience for backyard birds and backyard birders, and the ideas and suggestions of innovative, thinking people are always welcome. Based on your review, it sounds like a hanging hummingbird feeder with an ant moat may be a better option for your bird feeding station. Simply hang your hummingbird feeder from the ant moat and fill the ant moat with water to deter ants.
