I have been using this particular feeder for several years and hope it's never discontinued. I have several in my yard and the birds flock to them. My deck is Grand Central station all day long especially for the morning and evening feedings. I have improvised on this model though to accommodate the various sizes of Hummers. I found for the larger adults the perches were a bit too short for them to extend their beaks into the troughs comfortably. I used this wire, https://www.amazon.com/Luster-Leaf-Rapiclip-Light-Natural/dp/B01508VT60 to wrap around the outer rim looping through each perch another 1/2 inch or so. This not only accommodates the various sizes but is also gentle on their feet during hot and cold months. The brilliant copper is very attractive and easy to keep clean. I have them sitting flat on the corners of my deck set on top a swatch of velvet red Christmas ribbon. The birds can't miss the place when flying by:) Quick tip for distracting bees. Feed the bees with their own bowl of a thick sugar slurry away from the feeders 10-15 ft. Put a bright yellow ball, cap or toy in the center of it and they will leave your feeders alone.
