Perky-Pet Hummingbird Feeder and Nectar Recipe

Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved hummingbirds. I remember my mom calling me to the window to show me the hummingbirds buzzing around her garden flowers. She loves them too and even collected little hummingbird figurines during my childhood. I was so excited to receive a hummingbird feeder from Perky-Pet! This gorgeous Cobalt Blue Antique Bottle Hummingbird Feeder is designed to attract them to its four decorative flower feeding ports.
The little dish underneath the bottle is for hummingbird nectar and unscrews off to make it easily to refill. The cover with the feeding ports also comes off for easy cleaning. There is a sturdy metal hanger wrapped around the top of the feeder (aka the bottom of the bottle) to ensure it stays where you hang it.
Did you know you can easily make your own hummingbird nectar? It's really easy to make! Just pour one part white granulated sugar into 4 parts water in a saucepan. Stir it and bring it to a boil. Let it boil for no more than two minutes, then set it aside to cool.
Once it's cooled down, pour it into the hummingbird feeder dish, cover it with the feeding port lid, and screw it onto the hummingbird feeder. The hummingbirds will be flocking to your feeder. Did you know hummingbirds migrate? Perky-Pet has a hummingbird migration map so you can track when they will be in your part of the country!
Did you know there are different types of hummingbirds? I was amazed at all the different kinds of hummingbirds that I found in the Perky-Pet Hummingbird Library. There is so much information on their website! This hummingbird feeder is a beautiful addition to my back deck and I'm impatiently awaiting the arrival of the little buzzing beauties.
You can purchase the Cobalt Blue Antique Bottle Hummingbird Feeder at Perky-Pet for less than $20. They have many other designs as well as wild bird feeders and many other products. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter to be first to hear about special promotions and discounts!
Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
