Garden Jewels Round Glass Hummingbird Feeder
Great little hummingbird feeders
These are beautiful little hummingbird feeders. They each hold about a cup of food and the containers are glass so they clean easily, are easy to handle, and the plastic feeder port screws on securely and doesn't drip. Best of all, if anyone like I did purchased several years ago a feeder that looked like a mobile with three small feeders that hung down at different lengths from a central hanger, these are a more modern shaped but perfect fit for replacement feeders for this unit if your original ones either were broken or the plastic after several years had degraded in the sun. My beautiful mobile feeder now looks better than new.

Best hummingbird feeder yet
In my desert garden, wild birds - especially woodpeckers - raid my hummingbird feeders. This feeder has proven the best yet to keep birds from perching and gulping down the nectar. And the hummingbirds still have great access and visit the feeder frequently.

Bee-resistant and easy to clean
I have been searching for a simple, bee-resistant hummingbird feeder, and have finally found it. I've had trouble in the past with yellow-jackets crawling into my hummingbird feeders, but so far this hasn't happened with this model. Hurray! It's scary to open your feeder and have stinging insects fly at you.
I was hoping that ants wouldn't be able to navigate the glass shell, but alas they can. I just spray a little cooking oil on the hook that holds the feeder, and that seems to have solved the problem.
Black mold has not formed within the glass interior. With the plastic feeders I've used, this has been a problem. Some black mold collects in the red base, but that's easy to wash out.
I'll be ordering more of these next season.
