My favorite hummingbird feeder is the original Wild Birds Unlimited (WBU) saucer style. These hummingbird feeders are easy to fill and more importantly easy to clean. The saucer style is leak proof and bee resistant and the built in ant-moat stops ants from reaching the nectar. The feeder has perches (I love it when they stop to drink) and three feeding ports.
Then the Jewel Box Feeder was designed. The semicircular-shaped reservoir holds up to 8 ounces of nectar. It has three raised flowers feeding ports, an optional ant moat that surrounds the feeder, and it mounts easily to the window with suction cups or can screw into a deck. The hinged lid allows for easy filling, while a convenient latch keeps other animals from opening it. The feeder is bright red to help attract hummingbirds and it’s made in the USA with a lifetime guarantee.
But what really set it apart from other feeders was the HighView™ perch. Once hummingbirds discover the feeder, the HighView™ perch invites them to rest comfortably and drink from any of three feeding ports. While the perch is very comfortable for the hummingbirds to rest and drink it also allows you an easy unobstructed view of the beauties. Win, win!
The HummZinger HighView™ feeder offers an upgrade to the classic line of saucer hummingbird feeders. The feeder includes a HighView™ perch that invites hummingbirds to rest comfortably as they drink from any of four feeding ports while also offering an unobstructed view of the birds. The built-in ant moat blocks crawling insects and the patented Nectar-Guard tips (optional) on the feeding ports prevent bees, wasps, and other flying insects from contaminating nectar. The bright red cover attracts hummers from a distance and is removed easily so the bowl can be cleaned quickly and thoroughly. It’s constructed in the USA of unbreakable polycarbonate and backed with a lifetime guarantee.
