Tiny hummingbird feeders

Bigger isn't always better. Nectar (sugar water) can spoil after only a few days. Sometimes you can't wait for the hummingbirds to drink the feeder dry. You have to change the nectar at least once a week when the temperature is below 70 degrees Fahrenheit and at least twice a week if it is hotter. Sometimes in the suburbs a small feeder fits better.

Tiny feeders are also ideal for placing a grouping of feeders nearby, so territorial hummingbirds can each pick their own feeder.

The beautiful HummBlossom is a mini 4-ounce capacity feeder that has 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. A bright colored cover attracts hummingbirds from a distance and is removed easily so the bowl can be cleaned quickly and thoroughly.

And this year Wild Birds Unlimited East Lansing has the Aspects HummBlossom Accessory Kit! This allows you to either hang or stake-mount an Aspects HummBlossom feeder with the protection of a 7inch diameter weather dome and ant-moat. Magnetic adapters allow the accessories to be detached with ease for filling and cleaning. The hardware is solid brass and dome and ant-moat are constructed of durable polycarbonate. It is also backed with a Lifetime Guarantee and made proudly in USA.
