Red Antique Glass Hummingbird Feeder 5-1/2" x 10-1/2" high
We ordered this feeder to replace another one that had become a magnet for yellow jacket wasps, who were driving off the hummingbirds. It's worked out great. The wasps can't get at the nectar and the hummers have been feeding uncontested. There is no sight more exciting to us than hummingbirds helicoptering around the feeder taking sips at each flower opening.

Not actual red glass
We have several of these feeders and love the design. They look much better than most other feeders we've found. The glass is thick and the design is very attractive around a house or yard.
As far as the other review goes, it is not actually difficult to fill these. It just requires screwing the base on while the bottle is upside down, then flipping it over. Pretty standard for liquid feeders.
The reason we're giving the low stars is that the glass is actually clear glass with a red film / coating on it to make it look red. Unfortunately this coating isn't especially durable and our is peeling off on all of our feeders in less than a year of use. We have only cleaned them with water and diluted vinegar once. These are some of the more expensive feeders we've found, so are definitely disappointed that they didn't actually use red glass for them. They don't look near as good with half the red missing on them. What's also concerning is that it looks like the red coating is actually on the inside, so whatever it is made from, it's definitely in the water once they start peeling.

Pretty but Useless
Refilling is a mess, you must dump out the existing nectar to fill. The feeder allows water to enter in through the terribly sealed base. I threw mine in the garbage. Things to look for: How does it refill? If you have to unscrew the base (which has holes in it) then pass, because removing the base (with holes) will dump the contents on you. Can water enter in? If the 'seal' is not under the lip then most likely water and ants will seep in.
