Perky-Pet®'s horizontal-hanging 2 Foot Hummerbar® Hummingbird Feeding Tube offers a revolutionary way to feed more hummingbirds at one time.

Patented feeder hangs horizontally while delivering plenty of nectar for hummingbirds. Feeder ports are made of plastic molded in red, a color proven to attract hummers. Each port is spaced just right to allow hummingbirds to feed side-by-side!
The feeder is built of a shatter-resistant clear plastic feeding tube, which allows you to easily monitor nectar levels.

How to hang the Hummerbar®
- Remove an end cap.
- Remove nectar-pouring funnel from tube.
- Replace the end cap.
- Select an outdoor area to hang the Hummerbar®.
- Hang using loops at end of hanging cords—make sure the feeder is low enough to access for refilling and cleaning.
- Level the Hummerbar® by adjusting its cords. Slide cord locks up and down as needed to level.
- Remove rubber stopper from nectar basin and insert funnel.
- Fill about 1/4th full with Perky-Pet® hummingbird nectar. Compare each end by eye. If nectar is pooling to one side, then adjust cord locks again.
- Once nectar is evenly distributed, continue to fill nectar basin until half full. Do not overfill.
- Remove funnel, insert rubber stopper.
The best hummingbird nectar uses a 100% sucrose formula, which hummers prefer because it is easy to digest. All Perky-Pet® Hummingbird Nectar uses a 100% sucrose formula.
Never fill the Hummerbar® more than half-full. Overfilling the Hummerbar® can cause the feeder to leak.
If a 2-foot Perky-Pet® Hummerbar® isn't enough for your hummers, then try the the 4-foot version. With 44 feeder ports on the 4-foot version, you can feed even more hummingbirds.

Review RateDO NOT BUY PRODUCT - STICKER/ADHESIVE PROBLEM
Purchased this locally and doubt they will take it back as returns have to be in same condition as when purchased. The sticker is very difficult to remove, only to find the adhesive below is a permanent fixture. Nothing I have tried will remove it. This is so Hummingbird unfriendly/safe that I would not recommend this as a good buy for your hummers. I sure wish I had found this feedback prior to buying this bar. It would have saved me a lot of hassle and the $20.00 price tag which could have gone to other hummer products.

Review RateDo Not Buy
Don’t buy.. not worth the money. -you can’t remove the adhesive from the label so dirt, pollen, you name it sticks to it -it leaks, and the hummingbirds can’t actually empty it -the remaining nectar goes everywhere when you try to take it down for cleaning unless you’re gifted enough to keep it perfectly balanced while doing so. -it is impossible to clean the entire length of it -it grows mold faster than any other feeder I’ve ever had. Long story short - Do Not BuyResponse From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateI found the Hummerbar to have a couple of design flaws but overall I was pleased with it.
I purchased one of the hummer bars this year. I put it on a window because I wanted to see the darling hummers up close. I had no problem getting it level. Once I figured it out that you have to hang it before filling it, there was no problem with that. At first I thought the hummers couldn’t reach the water once it got down to around half full but as I observed them I noticed them putting their beaks in as far as they could and then I saw the ripples caused by their tounges sticking out. At first the birds weren’t interested in it but I think that may have been due to it not having a place to land. Then I saw them landing on the bar itself. I thought next year I would try to rig up a wire down the sides for them to sit on ( guess I am not the only one, as I read in someone else’s comments). Maybe they can be redesigned with a line for the hummers to sit on. My bar is in the shade most of the day and it is protected from the wind. My porch is surrounded on three sides by windows and I have feeders on all three sides. Next year I plan on putting up more feeders and yes I have already purchased two more of the Hummerbars.
Review RateVery disappointed
Thought I would love this Hummerbar. Got the 4ft. one for my birthday. That was 3 weeks ago. When you filled it full for the hummers to get the nectar it spilled through the feeding holes. Hummers looked at it but never used it. very disappointing. The label was very difficult to get off. Had to use goo gone. Not good for the little ones. Very disappointed with everything about the Hummerbar. Took it back to the store where it was bought todayResponse From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateProblems with the tube
My husband made a wonderful holder for the feeder so we could mount it on our deck railing. Super. The birds love it. So do the ants due to the tube leaking. It seems the tube has expanded and the end caps have shrunk - it is in the sun. Also, the filler port cap is now just about useless. This is the second season for this feeder and certainly not worth replacing every two years. I would strongly advise against purchasing this, unless it will be in the shade.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateUpdate, two hummingbirds
An update to my earlier comment. After painting yellow on a few of the red flowers, I had one small Hummingbird visit the feeder for a quick sip. I ended up rigging up a wire to run alongside each side of the feeder. (Our other feeders all had perches.) Now I have one male and one female Hummingbirds visit it. They stay for a drink. It appears our Hummingbirds are lazy and like to sit while they drink. Also, there seem to be far less Hummingbirds here this year. I expect it is due to the cold wet Spring.
Review RateLeave the sticker on
Easy to put together, could not get the sticker residue off. They make removable stickers. Tried everything I could think of. Will see if the hummers like it or not .Response From WoodstreambrandsKristen : Consumer Relations Representative
Thanks for your feedback! We have changed the sticker so it's easier to remove for future buyers.
Review RateLabel removal deters use
Not sure yet. It took forever to get that label off. So we do not yet have it up. Realllllly annoyed about that as i had to use goo gone on it. Not good for the birds. Why don’t you have a paper one that slides in and is easily removable. If we ever buy something from perky pet again I will check that first. Not worth buying because of the label. That lack of foresight does not bode well for how this will work.Response From WoodstreambrandsKristen : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We have updated the label for this product to make it easier to remove for future buyers.
Review RateNo Hummingbirds yet at this feeder.
We bought one of these feeders at the end of season last year but just put it up a couple weeks ago for the first time. So far, the hummers just check out the bottom of the ends and go to the other feeders. Our other feeders all have yellow centres so I am going to put a touch of yellow paint on the petals of the red flowers on the Hummer Bar to see if this helps. It seems to be a good idea for a feeder but needs some improvements. I only gave it one star as the Hummingbirds won't try it. Then I changed it to two stars as we do have a couple of woodpeckers that seem to like to lap up the syrup that leaks out when there is a wind blowing.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thanks for taking the time to provide us with this feedback! Birds are creatures of habit, and it can take them time to start using a new feeder. We recommend removing established feeders until the new one is being used. We've shared your comments with our Product Managers.

Hummingbird Feeders - FAQs
Q: What else do I need to know about hanging a Hummerbar®?
A: Make sure the Hummerbar® is level. This will be the key to enjoying your Hummerbar®. If the feeder isn't level, then nectar can ooze out of its feeder ports. The best way to level the feeder is to use a "construction level" as you work on placing it. Start by leveling it by sight, then use the tool to help you make additional adjustments.
Use the easy-sliding locks on each cord to fix the feeder into place. If those locks stay in place, your Hummerbar® should be "just right" every time.
Q: Should I "test" my Hummerbar® to see if it's level?
A: Instead of dealing with sticky nectar, try testing it with some water. After leveling it, pour some water into the Hummerbar®'s nectar basin. If the liquid distributes evenly along the Hummerbar®, it's ready to take nectar. If the water pools in one end, you need to work on leveling the Hummerbar® again. Once it appears to be level, dump the water and add your Perky-Pet® nectar!
Q: Do you fill the Hummerbar® to the top?
A: Never fill your Hummerbar® all the way to the top. First, you should only fill the Hummerbar® with as much nectar as your hummingbirds will eat in two days. Secondly, you should only fill about half of the Hummerbar® nectar basin—any higher and you could risk spilling nectar. Don't worry about the hummers though. The basin size was set to match the length of a hummingbird's tongue!
Q: What's the cleaning schedule for my Hummerbar®?
A: Clean the Hummerbar® every two days to keep mold from forming. On especially cool days, you can let it sit a day or so longer.
Q: Why is nectar leaking from the feeder ports?
A: Two things could cause your Hummerbar® to leak from its feeder ports. Did you overfill it? Remember to never fill a Hummerbar® more than half-full. Also, are you sure the feeder is level? This could cause leakage out of one end of the Hummerbar®. Try re-leveling it.
Q: Why is nectar leaking from the end caps?
A: If this is happening, just try pushing the end caps fully into the Hummerbar®. Each end cap should seal around the end of the Hummerbar®. After any leak, you may want to wipe the feeder down with a wet cloth.
Q: Should I take my Hummerbar® down when bad weather is coming?
A: High winds could cause your Hummerbar® to start swinging. The sloshing action could cause nectar to leak out.
Q: I want to bring even more hummingbirds. Any tips?
A: You can bring more hummingbirds to your yard by adding hummingbird-friendly flowers, including zinnias, butterfly bushes, columbines and salvias. Also make sure you have a good source of water for hummingbirds and other birds.
