My favorite hummingbird and oriole feeders

My nectar feeders are up! There are a lot of different oriole and hummingbird feeders. I even have a few different types myself. But if you were going to ask me what my favorite hummingbird and oriole feeders are I would have to say the saucer style.

Anyone that feeds birds nectar (sugar water) knows that besides some really cool birds, nectar can also attract ants, bees, and wasps. The saucer feeders, feeders that have the nectar in a bowl below a cover, are the best at deterring these unwanted guests.

If you are looking for a bee-proof, ant-proof, non-dripping, easy to clean, easy to fill, no muss, no fuss nectar feeder the saucer style feeders are the best! The HummZinger HighView™ feeder and the Wild Birds Unlimited Oriole feeder offers a perch that invites birds to rest comfortably as they drink and allows us an unobstructed view of the bird. 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 cover shades the nectar from the sun, and the bright color  attracts hummers and orioles from a distance. Maintenance is also a breeze. The top  removes easily so the bowl can be cleaned quickly and thoroughly.

* HighView perch for optimal viewing

TIP: Hummingbirds like to perch while they eat to help conserve energy for migration, but a perch is not required.
