We have some hummingbirds spend winter here in Dublin CA. They fight for the feeders and one will control all the feeders within his sight. I put this in the corner of our yard in the blind spot of that dominant hummingbird. But it is visible to birds when they fly by my yard. They will come one by one feed and leave because there is no resting place on this feeder and no tree to stand on to overlook it. As a result this is the most accessed by lots of hummers, a truly public property.” Read More Reviews »Perky-Pet® 8 oz Top Fill Glass Hummingbird Feeder Product Details Do you want to know more helpful details about the Top Fill Glass Hummingbird Feeder?

Review RateNeed replacement flowers
Why are there no replacement parts for the flowers? great feeder but the flowers are getting old and mold tough to get out of the rubber!
Review RateHow to get rid of bees at your feeders
We have had a devil of a time with bees this year. We think someone must have located a new hive nearby, and our house became their favorite dining spot! The bees showed up at the beginning of June -- in force. There must have been hundreds, and they swarmed all 10 feeders throughout the day. I went through every suggested strategy for getting rid of them I could find -- leaving a bowl of nectar for the bees, to be gradually moved further away (didn't work), adjusting the nectar to 1:5 which was supposed to be off-putting to the bees (no, it wasn't), adjusting the bee nectar ratio to 1:3 (hoping they would go to the sweeter nectar -- didn't work), took down all but two feeders (swarms remained at those two feeders), tried a "bee proof" hummer feeder (not Perky Pet) which proved to not bee proof, but was certainly hummer proof -- they refused it! Finally, I found this feeder and decided to give it a try. Success!!! No more bees! They have all left, and our little hummers are slowly returning. The feeder is extremely easy to use and does not leak anywhere -- it is a HUGE improvement over the pinch waisted ones we have been using for years. Wonderful feeder! The only improvement I would suggest would be to add perches (I did this by removing the perch portion from our pinch waisted feeders and hot gluing them to the bottom of this feeder. Hummers love it!) Thanks for a beautiful feeder that REALLY IS BEE PROOF!!!! I can now look forward to enjoying my little hummers without the bees!
Review RateLove this Feeder
These are the only hummingbird feeders I use anymore. I have tried every other style. These are the perfect feeders. No perches solves the big bully bird problem. I use an external ant moat because my ants are very diligent -- would not count on the dip in the lid to keep my billions out. My birds go through 2 to 6 feeders/day so turnover time is short and so I do not have to deal with nectar curdling or worry with mold (although in this heat mold can show up in just 8 hours occasionally). If mold starts in the soft plastic parts (i.e., plugs and floats), I throw them out and put the rest of the feeder parts in a spare parts box. I have started throwing just a dash of vinegar into the warm soapy water soak and am hoping that is a mold solution. Still would not mind if Perky Pets would offer plugs and floats as accessories for purchase.
Review Rate8oz top fills are a big plus!
The 8oz. Top Fill feeder is the perfect fit for our back yard. We have several feeders set up at all times. We were using the "Pinch Waist" feeders with the little perches exclusively but they keep getting clogged with bees in the warmer weather and other birds keep tipping them and draining the food. So to help alleviate those problems I bought two of the top fill feeders. The top fill feeders do not have the perches , but they do not have the bee and other bird problems either. The hummingbirds seem to favor them more as well. That is a big plus! They are easy to clean and refill. We still use the "Pinched Waist" feeders but are favoring the "Top Fill". It would be great if Perky-Pet could some how add the perches to the "Top Fill" feeders too, and maybe add a threaded bottom in place of the snap bottom. Just some thoughts!
Review RateIT IS A FAVORABLE ONE
I LOVE THIS FEEDER AND THE HUMMERS LOVE IT TOO. THANK YOU FOR IT. MARLENE
Review RateEasy to clean!I like how easy it is to disassemble and clean. No more black mold in the nectar. Better for the little guys.
Review RatePerfect sizeI purchased this feeder 2 years ago. I do like the size and the appearance. It hangs on my front porch so we can enjoy the hummingbirds. My hummers seem to like it. My only complaint is the feeding stations. They are impossible to clean. I wish there were replacements. I have 2 other Perky-Pet hummingbird feeders and l love them They are easy to clean and have replacement parts.
Review RateShoddy designThis feeder is useless as there is no gasket seal between the top and bottom of the base, which comes apart for cleaning. About three minutes after I filled it (and this happened several times), it drained itself dry. Eight ounces of nectar gone. This is the last of many Perky-Pet hummingbird feeders I will buy. They've all had problems in quality and have been very difficult to clean thoroughly. And some were ignored completely by hummingbirds. A waste of $20.Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello David,
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to make it right. When the parts of the base are snapped together and the bottle is tightly secured to the base, the feeder should not be leaking.
This feeder is covered by a one year warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review RatePerky-Pet top fill feedeerSo terribly disappointed as the nectar flows out of this feeder and thus is useless. I was so hopeful.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Charlie,
Thank you for sharing this feedback. This feeder is designed with a float built into the base to prevent excess nectar from leaking out. As the base fills up, the float will rise, preventing the nectar from exiting the flower ports. We apologize if this was not your experience and would like to learn more.
Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: This is my first Top Fill Hummingbird feeder, what are some good tips to filling and cleaning my new feeder?
A: Follow the steps on the chart for best filling and cleaning tips.
Q: I typically get a lot of ants around my hummingbird feeders, what can I do to prevent them from getting to the nectar?
A: No worries, with this top fill feeder - it has a built in ant moat right in the lid of the feeder. After filling your feeder and hanging, simply pour a small amount of water in the top of the lid.
Q: What criteria should I use when selecting a hummingbird feeder?
A: Make sure it is one that will be easy to clean and fill, especially since you will need to clean the feeder every few days. If you are worried about bees and wasps or ants invading the feeder, purchase a hummingbird feeder with bee guards, such as the Perky-Pet model #203CP or ant guards, Perky-Pet model #242.
Q: How do I clean my hummingbird feeders?
A: Hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned every 1-2 weeks. Use hot water and a bottle brush, along with mild soap; be sure to rinse thoroughly. The Perky-Pet cleaning mop is specifically designed for the purpose of cleaning hummingbird feeders, and is very convenient to use. This cleaning mop can also be used on seed feeders and oriole feeders for those small, tight spaces that are difficult to reach.
Q: What is the importance of providing water for hummingbirds?
A: Hummingbirds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need nectar. Hummingbirds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide hummingbirds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for hummingbirds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy.
