Perky-Pet® Vintage Glass Hummingbird Feeders Bring Back an Era of Elegance to Dress Up Backyards

Hummingbirds are some of the most fascinating and alluring creatures on the planet. Only found throughout North and South America, these tiny animals are some of the smallest birds on record. Their ability to fly in any direction at speeds up to 30 miles per hour makes them captivating to watch. It’s no wonder millions of people want to attract hummingbirds to their yards.

Because hummingbirds are so small, they expend a great deal of energy each day just by flying from place to place. It’s important for them to restore the energy they burn by eating protein-packed insects and drinking sugary nectar. Hummingbirds get nectar from two sources: nectar-producing flowers and nectar-containing hummingbird feeders.

Hummingbird feeders have come a long way since they were first produced in the 1950’s. Today you can find all kinds of hummingbird feeders from beautiful, decoratively designed feeders, to top-of-the-line feeders loaded with added features. Now, you can have the best of both worlds with the all new Perky-Pet® Vintage Hummingbird Feeder line!

You will love how these vintage inspired hummingbird feeders will look hanging in your backyard. With features like antique hobnail embossing, traditional vase style shapes, and bold color choices reminiscent of high-end glassware from the early 1900’s, these hummingbird feeders are anything but ordinary. Each glass nectar reservoir is complemented by a decorative metal hanger and a delicate brushed nickel or copper finished base to complete the antique look.

Not only are these vintage hummingbird feeders stylish, they’re also loaded with quality features that make your life easier when filling and cleaning. It’s recommended to thoroughly clean your hummingbird feeders at least a few days a week, and Perky-Pet® realizes this can sometimes be a challenging task. That’s why they added a convenient wide mouth opening to the entire vintage line. Never again will you struggle to reach every crack and crevice when scrubbing your hummingbird feeders! Filling is super simple too with the roomy opening; now you can pour your sugar solution into the nectar reservoir with ease.

If your hummingbird feeder collection is filled to the brim with red feeders, why not try adding something new, like the Perky-Pet® Sapphire Starburst Vintage Hummingbird Feeder? The unique sapphire blue color is sure to stand out from the crowd and make a statement! While red is a popular choice for hummingbird feeders, hummingbirds are actually attracted to many colors. When on the hunt for a tasty meal, hummingbirds look for bright colored flowers that signify they are nectar-rich and ready to drink. These flowers include colors like pink, blue, purple, orange, yellow, and even white. Once hummingbirds realize there is nectar for the taking, they will never forget your always abundant nectar supply, and return time and time again, no matter the color of your feeder.

If you get multiple hummingbirds coming to your yard, it may be best to hang more than one hummingbird feeder. Hanging two or more feeders close together will discourage territorial behavior amongst hummingbirds. With having multiple ports to defend, a territorial hummingbird will realize he or she can’t possibly chase away contending hummingbirds from all ports, thus typically allowing others to dine with them in peace.

Feeding hummingbirds can provide many hours of enjoyment and entertainment to hummingbird admirers, while also providing much needed nutrition to fast-moving hummingbirds. Why not do it in style with a Perky-Pet® Vintage Hummingbird Feeder! With so many designs, shapes and colors to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect hummingbird feeder for you and your tiny feathered friends.
