Hummingbird feeders from Amazon

Aspects 153 Mini Hummzinger Hummingbird Feeder, 8-Ounce

This feeder is very effective at drawing in hummingbirds, probably because it looks like a big, red flower; and it is easy to clean--which other feeders I have tried are not. It also has an effective ant trap, and it doesn't dribble, so it won't attract yellowjackets. A downside is its small capacity, so it's most appropriate for locations that are not overrun with hummingbirds.

This feeder is easier to keep clean than plastic models that get a black mildew on them. Health and a clean feeder are important to the fragile little flyers. This is a good all around pick for decent volume, ease of cleaning, and an attractive appearance. Oh yeah, and you can't beat the price even in a plastic model. I bought it as a gift for my mother who has an antique bottle collection. She loves it. The hummingbirds in New Mexico are more colorful than the ones here in South America but worldwide they all like a place to rest a moment and have a nice drink.
