Review Rateneed to return to quality
AS with most of the people who wrote reviews, I too have become disappointed in the quality of this feeder. I have been purchasing this particular feeder for many years. The design changes have been terrible. the older product ( with the flat bee guards) would give me at least 5 years of quality service. I know nothing lasts forever, but if you go back to the old design all your customers would be happy. I purchased mine at Home Depot and don't save receipts so I have no proof of purchase. As this specific feeder is the only one myself and my neighbors can get the birds to come to, we're stuck. ( we all have tried many different designs and brands but the birds only seem to come to this design. Between myself and two neighbors, over three years time we've spent more than $500.00 trying other ones to no avail) I was unaware of the guarantee or warranty and what good is it seeing how they ALL leak almost immediately, sun or shade and no wind. If we didn't enjoy the birds and think they need our help with food we would probably just give up in frustration. Please go back to the original design so the people and the birds can be happy again.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDissapointed in new feeder.
I purchased this feeder from Lowes in August of this summer. It was the second of the larger glass feeders that I have bought this summer. I took the first one back because it leaked. I am taking this one back because it leaks. It is the same shape of my old one that I have had for years and it has never leaked. I went to Perky Pets because of that. I guess I was drawn to the familiar shape. I just wish my old one had the ant trap and was as easy to clean as the larger mouths. But, I will stick with my old one.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Ratepoor design
You should still offer the original style Pinch-Waist Hummingbird Feeder. It is the best one. I bought this new style, pours liquid all over when inverting, birds do not care for it and flowers are too bust, keep it simple. When it is empty, I will not use it again, the birds will have to use the original style.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi Rollie! We're sorry that your experience with this feeder is not as positive as others have found it. We will certainly pass on your suggestion to being back the older design to our Product Managers. In order to prevent leaks, we recommend making sure your feeder is protected from the wind and from the sun, since liquid expands as it gets warmer. Other tips to consider are disassembling the feeder and then re-assembling it. For bottom fill feeders, quickly invert the feeder upright after filling for minimal leakage. If these tips do not improve your feeder's performance, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this feeder's one-year replacement policy. We're happy to help!
Review RateTake a second look
Beware. Look good but eventually crack and leak. Mine had small indentations on the part that screwed to the glass and all 4 of mine cracked there. Good idea but poorly made.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this experience. We apologize that the feeders cracked in this manner and would like to offer assistance. Our feeders are backed by a 30 day return policy and covered under a one year replacement policy. Please email us directly at email@example.com for assistance.
Review RateBring back smaller opening feeders
I have had numerous feeders like this one over the years. I wanted some more to hang out since we have so many hummingbirds. However, like many other reviewers these newer versions leak so bad because they have the wider mouth. The smaller ones like I have never leak! These make the biggest mess and attract ants! Please go back to the smaller mouth opening. I understand that things change and you want to make newer and better products. But then again, like the old saying goes...if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. SMALL OPENINGS PLEASE!!!!Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi Crystal! Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience! We are very sorry that your experience with this product was not as satisfying as your experiences with our other products have been. In order to help prevent leaks, we recommend making sure your feeder is protected from the wind as much as possible. You should also protect it from the sun, since liquid expands as it gets warmer, making sure that all of the joinst are tightly fastened (but not too tight). We certainly understand your frustration, and have passed your comments on to our Product Managers for review. Don't forget, this product is covered by a one-year replacement policy.

Review RatePLEASE go back to the narrow mouth jar
I have had a Perky Pet Pinch-Waist Hummingbird Feeder (glass jar) for many, many years. Never ever had a problem with it leaking. Finally the plastic began to deteriorate and crack from so many years out in the sun. Since I have been so extremely pleased with the original feeder I decided to buy a new one that appeared to be exactly like my old one. Even though the new feeder looked the same it was not. My original one has the narrow mouth opening, this one has the wide mouth opening. I'm no genius, but it was obvious to me that the wide mouth opening does not create enough of a vacuum to hold the nectar in the jar causing the nectar to constantly drip out of the feeder. (No wonder so many people are complaining about it attracting bees) The narrow mouth jar never EVER had that problem. It's just a simple matter of physics. Please, please go back to the narrow mouth jar. You have turned the very best hummingbird feeder ever into the worst hummingbird feeder ever.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateLeaks. Another terrible Perky Pet feeder
Been having bee problems, thought this feeder might solve them. Wrong! It leaks nectar when you tip it right-side up, and thermal expansion of the air bubble (from sun in the morning) forces nectar out more easily than other feeders, because the individual nectar ports are at too shallow of an angle. The result is puddles of nectar in each red flower, and bees galore. Also the holes in the bee guard are large enough that bees can fit their head through. The bee guards are obviously cosmetic. Another terrible Perky Pet feeder.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi Chris! We are very sorry to hear about your experience with this feeder! We recommend keeping it in the shade in order to help prevent thermal expansion. Additionally, this feeder is covered by a one-year replacement policy, as well as a 30-Day Guarantee.

Review RateGreat feeder, bee guards hard to clean
This is the perfect feeder--almost! The perches are great. The large flowers block the peripheral view of the feeding hummers so that they can share the feeder without spending so much energy on territorial behavior around the feeder. It is easy to clean, with the exception of the bee guards. The black mold/algae that grows in them is nearly impossible to scrub or soak away from the bee guards, making it necessary to spend a lot of time and frequently discarding them. But for this issue, it is the perfect feeder. Would love to see it with ceramic or glass replacing all of the plastic.
Review RateDoes NOT work as claimed by company
Same problem as other have cited over and over - the bee guards don't do anything except, possibly, keeping the bees from sipping but do not discourage them from trying, and keeping the hummers away. Ant moat doesn't seem to keep the ants off the feeder, although I am at a loss to explain how they are avoiding it. Your suggestions - call you and keep the feeder in the shade - are pretty much useless. The birds look in the sunshine for bright flowers on which to feed, not in the shade. Why do you keep on making claims about the benefits of your feeder when so many people find it doesn't fulfill those claims ? No ethics ? Common in merchandise any more; just more stuff China makes for the gullible U.S. consumer. Join the crowd.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateThe Best!
Love to use them because the birds enjoy the food and the fight!
