Antique Bottle Hummingbird Feeder Instructional Video

The elegant Perky-Pet® Antique Glass
Hummingbird Feeder is a traditional bottom fill feeder that will add a
classic look and attract hummingbirds to your yard.
First, remove the product hang tag and label. Before using, you’ll want to clean your
feeder. To disassemble, hold the bottle with one hand and rotate the base
clockwise. Set the bottle aside on a flat, safe surface. Lift off the metal collar
with the flower ports. Wash all parts with warm soapy water. Use
a bottle brush to clean the bottle. Be sure to rinse completely and dry
thoroughly. It’s recommended that you fill your
feeder over a sink or outdoors. Prepare the nectar as instructed. To fill, hold
bottle with the bottle opening facing up and pour in nectar. Continue to hold the
bottle with the opening facing up. Place the metal collar flowers side down over
the neck of the bottle. Attach the plastic reservoir base onto the threaded
neck of the bottle. Rotate clockwise until the collar and base are firmly
aligned and tightly screwed into place. Quickly invert the feeder upright and
it’s ready to hang in your yard. If you have filled your feeder in the house, you
may want to carry your feeder upside down until you’re out in the yard. It’s
important to change your nectar every few days. When left in the hot sun for
extended periods of time, the nectar may ferment, becoming unhealthy and
unattractive to birds. To complete your hummingbird feeding needs, Perky-Pet®
provides a wide variety of hummingbird nectars. The Perky-Pet® Antique Feeder
will attract hummingbirds to your yard while adding a classic touch to your
outdoor decor.

  1. I LOVE mine! It really is a pretty feeder. I filled it with sugar water today (4 parts water to 1 part sugar) and hung it outside for the first time. Our Ruby-throated hummingbirds are due to arrive within the next couple of weeks. (Note: The sugar water is much better for the birds and a lot cheaper for you!) 🙂

  2. To remove the sticker (that says glass) without pulling off the red coating, heat the bottle where the  label is with a hair dryer. The heat from the hair dryer eventually melts the adhesive and you can carefully peal the label off without pulling off some of the red coating.
