    Great product! Perfectly designed because you have the choice of either filling some or all of the bottle.

    It is just perfect!

    It is a nice hummingbird.

  5. Pete P. (verified owner)

    I have had two for 4 years and they are still like new. Hummers love them.

  6. Cynthia C. (verified owner)

    It is a really great product and great service.

  7. Doreen A. (verified owner)

    It is a cute feeder. The hummingbirds are loving it!

  8. Hal K. (verified owner)

    Great product! Lasts well in our hot summer climate and the hummers love it.

  9. Deanna R. (verified owner)

    I have hummingbird feeders that hold more food and needed something smaller. The 8-oz feeders allow me to keep them fresh easier and I can have several in different areas which is good because these little darlings can be so territorial. I love the size and the quality!

  10. Christine M. (verified owner)

    I have three! They are the best!_x000D_

  11. Helen G. (verified owner)

    Love this feeder. Simple to use, easy to clean, and the glass never clouds like plastic. I’ve used this brand for 3 years and will not use anything else. The hummingbirds also seem to like it over the others I have out. I can also use bleach to clean and sanitize, unlike plastic which seems to retain the bleach odor and never rinse clean.

  12. R.c. S. (verified owner)

    Great feeder; it does not leak like other designs.

  13. Marvin H. (verified owner)

    We live in an area of the World where hummingbirds abound and we have been looking for feeders that have a perch as an integral part of the feeder. One can see the beauty of the various colorations of these lovely birds only when they are at rest so the perch becomes very important. The feeder we purchased serves that need extremely well. I would have preferred a perching area with a greater surface diameter in as much as hummingbirds are quite territorial and do not like to share space with other species of Colibri. We should have ordered 4 feeders instead of the 2 we ordered since we have both hanging to avoid the constant dispute over who will be allowed to drink from each feeder.

  14. Susan D. (verified owner)

    This is a very nice feeder. It comes apart easily for cleaning, and the perch gives the birds a chance to perch and feed, which means we can see them longer. I really like it!

  15. Georgeanne H. (verified owner)

    This is the best feeder I have ever used!

  16. Steve C. (verified owner)

    I have used this feeder for years. It is easy to load, clean and keeps bee’s at bay!

  17. Mildred N. (verified owner)

    I hate raccoons!!!

  18. Sam T. (verified owner)

    This is a really good design._x000D_
    It is the easiest feeder to clean that I have ever encountered! I know ALL hummingbird feeders have packaging or whatever that says they are easy to clean, but usually that it a big lie. In this case it’s actually true. The base comes apart effortlessly for cleaning and none of that deal where you have to somehow pry apart the pieces._x000D_
    This has none of the problems of other feeders I have tried regarding the accidental trapping and drowning of little native bees. I like bees, too, and have every wish to avoid killing them._x000D_
    And the perches get a thumbs up in my book on a safety issue – I actually saw a photo once of a hummingbird that had become wedged and died in between a circular perch and the base, but this perch has several concentric circles so there is NO WAY a hummer could get wedged in there. _x000D_
    I like knowing I can order bigger glass bottles and not entirely new feeders if the hummers around here start drinking more._x000D_
    This doesn’t have little green or yellow fake plastic “flowers” around the drinking holes, but guess what – hummingbird research shows that hummingbirds don’t give a flip about those little plastic fake flowers – it’s just one more thing not to have to clean around.

  19. Willie D. (verified owner)

    It is as good as the 32 oz. Good for those slow times at the feeder.

  20. James N. (verified owner)

    We purchased the first of this type of feeder in Tulsa. After the store closed we looked for the item on line. That is how much we like the product.

  21. Mike S. (verified owner)

    This is a great hummingbird feeder! The hummers love it and perch on it to eat all the time. I now own 4 of them. It is also easy to clean and there are no spare parts for critters to break off and replace._x000D_
    Only problem is, they were hard to find in a store, until I Googled the name, and had to order over the web.

  22. Maria A. (verified owner)

    This is the best hummingbird feeder. It holds enough to feed them and doesn’t spoil. I like it so much I have two and adding. One really isn’t enough they are so territorial. The base is really solid construction and the glass bottle is great. It cleans so easily. The person that recommended it to me has 3 of the 32oz feeders._x000D_
    I’ve given these as gifts for people that are home bound and they love to watch all the birds.

  23. Kevyn M. (verified owner)

    Arrived safely_x000D_
    New Zealand small nectar birds are using it._x000D_
    Do you have a model with slightly larger perching area?_x000D_
    We have a bird – Tui – that is larger and can not land on the perching ring

  24. Janet M. (verified owner)

    Our humming birds LOVE this feeder because it has a perch! There will be five at a time enjoying their homemade nectar – we love it!

  25. Rheta S. (verified owner)

    Best Hummingbird feeder I have ever had. It does not drip or leak like other designs do.

  26. Inese M. (verified owner)

    This is my second hummingbird feeder. It is easy to handle and keep clean.

  27. Ethylgene J. (verified owner)

    I have purchased this feeder before and this was an additional one. I have found it to be the best feeder available.

  28. Barbara E. (verified owner)

    I’ve had many hummingbird feeders over the years and this is the best hummer feeder ever. Most important, it is easy to clean. No worry about the birds getting ill. Simply clean it every few days, hang in a shady place and fill and “they will come”.

  29. John A. (verified owner)

    Best feeder I’ve ever found. It doesn’t leak like some others and the hummers love it!

  30. Barbara M. (verified owner)

    I have owned a number of hummingbird feeders. This is the best. It is easy to see the level of liquid in the bottle, it is easy to clean, and the cup keeps ants from getting to the nectar.

  31. Kathleen F. (verified owner)

    This is the best hummer feeder I’ve found….It’s large enough to hold food for a few days, then small enough that it’s not a pain to clean frequently so food is kept fresh and delicious for my hummingbirds! This style feeder is easier to clean than those with the yellow plastic flowers that can fall off and get lost.

  32. William E. (verified owner)

    We had one of these feeders and several others. We noticed the hummingbirds were tactical over this particular feeder. The hummingbirds like it the best by far. It is so easy to clean and reasonably priced.

  33. Connie H. (verified owner)

    Best feeder ever!! Have five of them.

  34. Norma M. (verified owner)

    This is the best hummingbird feeder I’ve ever seen, for two reasons. One is that it is very easy to clean, and the second reason is that it gives the hummers a place to rest while they eat. I ordered some to give for gifts.

  35. Greg H. (verified owner)

    I was somewhat surprised that as soon as we put the feeder out, the hummingbirds started using it. Sort of like, “build it and they will come” from Field of Dreams.

  36. Shirley K. (verified owner)

    I love this type of hummingbird feeder. I have been using them for years. I would recommend them to anyone who feeds hummingbirds.

  37. Georgia R. (verified owner)

    These are the very best hummingbird feeders we have ever had and we have used them for a few years. They are easy to clean and do not have the bee guards that always get moldy. The hummingbirds love them because they are easy for them to hold on to while they are feeding.

  38. Ed P. (verified owner)

    Great hummingbird feeder. Easy to clean and fill, bought two for freinds also!

  39. Nancy K. (verified owner)

    I have used a number of different hummingbird feeders over the years. I purchased one of these feeders a few years ago while on vacation. I wanted to purchase another one because I have found it to be the BEST one I have ever used. Found it on line at Backyard Chirper- it is also very easy to clean.

  40. Ed W. (verified owner)

    The hummers like it and the yellowjackets don’t. That’s super. If ants give trouble, just smear wheel bearing grease on the hook that holds the feeder. Most other feeders mainly satisfy the yelllowjackets. NOT THIS ONE!

  41. John C M. (verified owner)

    The size is perfect and I have used several feeders from different companies in the past and I really must say this is the one for me.

  42. Cynthia M. (verified owner)

    Great feeder!

  43. Sandi B. (verified owner)

    I’ve gone through many hummingbird feeders over the years, and this one is by far the best. My recent purchase was to replace the exact item. The hanger had rusted after several years use so I decided to replace now so I’m ready for next season. It’s a no-nonsense feeder, easy to clean–I highly recommend it!

  44. Judy V. (verified owner)

    Our hummers immediately fed from this feeder.

  45. Wayne R. (verified owner)

    These are the best feeders you can buy! Easy to clean! And when you go on vacation you can screw a two liter coke bottle on them!!

  46. Gayle K. (verified owner)

    Thes hummingbird feeders are by far the best out there. The glass bottle and the resin bottom part seem to help prevent the mold, or whatever that scuzzy stuff is that forms on the feeders especially in the hot and humid weather so it doesn’t start forming near as quickly as in other plastic ones. I have used them for years as has my Mom. Wouldn’t use anything else. Just bought one for my daughter who just moved into a house and had a place to put one. She loves it!

  47. Chanin S. (verified owner)

    This is a wonderful feeder!! Our hummingbirds have followed us from our previous building next door. The Best-1 nectar is great too. They love it and no red dye in it. I hand-raised a hummingbird my daughter found on the ground using the nectar among other things… released him after about 6 weeks! Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone, it’s easy and they love it.

  48. Margaret A. (verified owner)

    Excellent service. Fast delivery, well-wrapped._x000D_
    I look forwad to using them more.

  49. Anne F. (verified owner)

    I don’t waste as much with this feeder as it takes less and I can see if it is being used.

  50. Margaret S. (verified owner)

    This bird feeder is the best feeder at keeping out ants I’ve ever tried. This is my second feeder the first one got broken. A bear took it done and smashed it.

  51. Sally G. (verified owner)

    We purchased our first Hummingbird Feeder having seen one in TX in April. It was so successful, we bought another recently. We found not only hummers like this, but also woodpeckers! So much easier to clean than previous feeders and an attractive design as well. So glad we found you!

  52. Kathy C. (verified owner)

    Love it! My back yard is full of hummingbirds and I’m enjoying them. Clean up is really easy with this product. I bought two of them and threw the rest in the trash!

  53. Judith D. (verified owner)

    I love this feeder. I had the blossom style previously and they leaked nectar and I had a problem with bees and ants. I do not have any of those problems with the Best-1. When I first hung it, the hummers did not seem to know how to use it but they quickly figured it out and now they just come there to rest sometimes.

  54. Larry S. (verified owner)

    We’ve been using this feeder for years. It’s getting increasingly hard to find. They will last forever if you don’t drop and break them. Happy to find them at Backyard Chirper, and a very good price.

  55. Penny U. (verified owner)

    This bottle feeder is the best we have ever used for a hummingbird! They can reach the holes and perch more comfortably, and the care and cleaning is so much easier, too. If you are ever visited by an off-course hummingbird, as we were in late November until late January, a woollen sock over the bottle (and a heat lamp above) helps to keep the sugar water from freezing.

  56. Judi H. (verified owner)

    I purchased my first Best-1 hummingbird feeder about 10 years ago while visiting Mall of America. I have LOVED it! It didn’t take long for the first hummer to visit it. I Purchased another type feeder, a few years ago, to hang on the other side of our house, which was never visited by a single hummer. So didn’t use it last year at all. My 10 year old Best-1’s plastic base was faded to orange by the sun over the years. So excited to find a replacement base on your web-site. Since prices are so good I opted to purchase a whole new one as well. Now we have multiple hummers visiting both feeders very few minutes throughout the day. They empty them both within two days, which is perfect timing so I don’t need to dispose of any uneaten sugar solution, since cleaning is needed every few days in the high heat of summer to avoid having hummers eat spoiled food. I absolutely LOVE these feeders! SUPER easy to clean! Great design, hummers like to perch on rings to drink. They are not the prettiest to look at, but not unsightly either. What matters to me is happy hummers that visit often and ease of cleaning, which is what this feeder provides! HIGHLY recommend to everyone looking for the BEST hummingbird feeder around!

  57. Shannon F. (verified owner)

    Our hummingbirds love it. It is SO easy to use clean and we now have three identical feeders in place around our home._x000D_

    I’ve been using hummingbird feeders for decades and the Best-1 8 Ounce Clear Glass Hummingbird Feeder is the best feeder I’ve ever used. The reasons it’s superior to others: (1.) It’s easy to clean. You can reach every square inch of the feeder and there aren’t any unnecessary decorations that need to be cleaned which so many other feeders have. I use a bottle brush which makes cleaning even easier–it takes less than two minutes. (2.) The bottle is real glass and it’s thick. It won’t ever crack or discolor or leak toxins into the nectar. (3.) The feeding base is thick red plastic (styrene) and seems to be indestructible. It’s only in two parts and there’s no assembly required. (4.) The design is genius. It’s made so that other birds and insects can’t use it. (5.) There’s a perch all the way around it for the hummers to use while eating, thus conserving their energy. (6.) The hook is attached to the feeder and it works perfectly. (7.) It’s a nice looking feeder. I can’t imagine a feeder design being more perfect in every way. After I first put it out, hummers spotted it and started using it within 20 minutes and they’ve been using it off and on all day long ever since!

    I had 2 feeders like this for 5 or 6 years and they are the best feeder out there. Dropped one and broke it and so happy I could find another one just like it. Thanks. I love them and so do my hummers.

  62. Janet G. (verified owner)

    I have used these feeders for several years. They are easy to clean and the hummingbirds seem to enjoy them. I really like the smaller size.
