Review RateBest redesign everI was VERE unhappy when they changed the feeder design. I had 9 of the previous models & needed parts. My husband purchased this model locally & I fell in love! GREAT design, easy to fill & CLEAN! They hit all the bases & more! Thank you Perky Pet for the BEST redesign I’ve seen!
Review RateWorks goodI read the 1 star reviews and complaints about leaking. I got one anyway, assuming I could engineer it to work. Filled it with water, no leaks. What? Looked to me that the trough was filling deep enough, so a dried it out good, filled it with nectar and hung it out. The birds suck it down in a day no problem. Day after day. They drink from each port, sometimes at the same. Been doing it now for a week. Refill every day. Don't know whats up with the naysayers. I would buy another if I need to.
Review Rateneed to sell replacement perches again
We have been using our 209b for many years and love it. However, if you are not going to offer the replacement perches for sale anymore we will have to find another feeder manufacture that does. So sad to see this company make this decision.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateOverall a Fabulous Feeder with Great Capacity
Have been using these feeders for a couple of weeks now and I wish there was a 4 1/2 rating. Except for a couple of minor issues they are GREAT. First the good stuff. The capacity is wonderful. We feed several hundred ruby throats every day and they took to them immediately. The bee guards actually WORK. For a while the bees kept investigating, but now we rarely see a bee on these feeders. They do not leak. Not sure what happened with the reviewer who said they leak, but we have not had that problem. They seem to flow fine. After reading the review indicating a problem with the flow we did not cinch the port portion down as tight as it will go. We just tighten it to the first stop...flows fine and does not leak. The wide mouth makes them easy to clean and fill. As for the hummers not being able to reach the nectar as someone mentioned. I can't see that as a problem as their beaks do not have to actually reach the liquid since they lap with their tongues. The built in ant guard (which is also removable for cleaning) is a bonus though we still use the ant guards we already had. The minor issues I see 1) The perches appear to be a little wimpy. I ordered the special...buy 3 get one free. Upon arrival, I noticed one of the perches was broken. As they obviously are detachable, I called just asking for a replacement perch. Perky Pet is not making replacement parts so they just sent me a new feeder. That just seems a little extreme and down the road new perches might be needed I would hate to have to replace an entire feeder just because the perch broke. And I also hated for Perky Pet to replace a whole feeder for just the perch. On the one that was broken, a little piece of duct tape made it still usable. 2) I liked the wire hangers that used to come with Perky Pets. The S hook hangers that come with these do not work for us as we have to hang them high to keep out raccoons and occasionally a bear. We had to make our own hangers. Not a major issue. 3) Perches seem like they might need to be just a smidge closer to the base for our Ruby Throats. They don't seem to use the perches on these feeders as much as they do the perches on our other Perky Pets and the other brands that we have. Overall these are wonderful feeders. They come apart easily for cleaning and go back together just as easily and the capacity has sure kept our hummingbird feeding from being a nearly full time job at the peak of the season. I have always been a fan of the small Perky Pet "cinch waist" feeder as have the hummers. These have always been their favorites, but keeping 8 oz feeders filled for the number of birds we have is truly impossible. Our hummers find this new feeder a very close second.
Review RateGreat feeder
Best ever feeder. So easy to clean and fill. Has wide mouth so you don’t have to use funnel to fill it. Love that it has molt on top to keep ants from getting into feeder.am going to order another because I have so many birds.
Review RateNice feeder.
My previous review was taken down not sure why, it was a good one. This new design is made of a stiffer plastic and comes fully assembled. No leaks. Previous model did have a leak issue until the unit adjusted itself together about a day. It came not assembled so some slight warp-age was the issue. Some hot water worked out the issue. Love the new ones. Promised a follow up and here it is.
Review RateLove them so far
Love these feeders, although I've only been using them for a few days. This is my 16th season of feeding Hummers, and I can only remember one season when I didn't have a bad bee infestation of some kind . So far this season, the small bumblebees have been a small nuisance to the birds....until I put out four of these feeders. The bees have nearly all disappeared. If you look at the design, you'll notice the holes in the feeding flowers protrude outward. I'm guessing that's making a critical difference in the bees' ability to get to the nectar. My bad bee problems always occur later in the season, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Review RateMy hummingbird's top choice in feeders!This is the best feeder I have used and I have tried them all. The wide mouth glass feeder is easy to clean and fill, the birds love the perches and keeping the ant moat filled solves the ant problem. My hummingbirds prefer this feeder to any other I have tried. Gradually eliminated the rest over the years and use only this model exclusively. I have up to 35 hummingbirds with 6-8 feeders filled all summer long with a mixture of 1 cup sugar per quart (or 4 cups sugar to a gallon of water). My feeder lids have a tight seal when screwed on correctly and I have never had the experience of leaking feeders or losing the nectar.
Review RateGreat feeder
Have been using the old 209 for many years. Yes at first had some issues with leaking when new. After you put it together, be sure to firmly twist the base on, then set it in the sun for a bit, or rinse with very hot water and assemble immediately. Always store them put together keeps everything aligned. Very easy to clean, the ant moat does a super job. Very good feeder for large numbers of Hummers. Hope the new ones work the same. Will let you know how the new 209b does.
Review RateQuality no longer as good as it used to be
I purchased the 'buy 3 get 1 free' 30 oz feeders at the end of last season as I could no longer get parts for my Model 209 feeders. These feeders are not made as sturdy as the older models that were made in the USA. The perch is thin and really has no support. Model 209's perch rested against the base which gave it more support. The support on one of my new feeders broke when a larger bird decided to try some nectar. The base itself cracked when I tightened it. Some of the flowers curve upward leaving space under them for the bees, hornets and wasps to get to the nectar. All in all since the feeders are made in China now, there seems to be less quality control and they are not as sturdy as before. I wish I could still get parts for my old feeders. I have 5 of the 30 or 32 oz feeders and fill each one 2 to 3 times EACH day. The new ones will not hold up and I cannot afford new ones every year.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
