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.
Looks great BUT......METAL gets very cold in the winter and METAL gets very hot in the summer. The METAL foot rest area where the hummingbird can rest (save calories) when feeding can cause the hummingbirds feet to FREEZE TO THE METAL (of course! ) and in the hot summer THE METAL can totally burn the humminbird's feet. MANUFACTURER: DO NOT USE METAL !!!!
Hi Pat, Thank you for your review of the More Birds Glory Hummingbird Feeder. We are sorry to see your overall disappointment with this product. We do offer other hummingbird feeders that are not metal if you are interested in other materials. We will be sharing your feedback with our Product Development and Design team. Please know that hummingbirds should migrate in winter months, so they should not be around when it is freezing outside. It’s totally understandable to think that the birds’ exposed feet would cause similar results to a human's skin touching cold metal, but there’s actually some interesting science behind why birds are completely safe. Birds’ feet are not like ours. They don't have sweat glands, and no sweat glands means no moisture to freeze to the metal on your birdfeeder. Also, we suggest hanging your hummingbird feeder out of direct sunlight, always. Direct sunlight will spoil the nectar faster, so hanging the feeder in partial shade will extend the life of the nectar and keep the feeder cool. The perches are a nice added feature to hummingbird feeders, however, they are unnecessary as hummingbirds mostly feed while in flight. If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164. Thank you!
