Big Gulp Hummingbird Feeder 8" x 8" x 10.5" high
Great Hummingbird Feeder
My Mom has been feeding hummingbirds in a canyon in the Hollywood Hills for over ten years now and things have gotten a little out of hand. Even in the winter (if you can call what we have here in Southern California winter) she consistently attracts scores of hummingbirds, and come the spring and summer, the number jumps to hundreds: Allen's, Rufous and Black-Chinned Hummingbirds.
The Problem was that the old 28 Oz. six station hummingbird feeders that we had been using were just wearing out and we could find no similar replacement, so we took a gamble. The 40 Ounce Big Gulp, seven station feeder is different from what we have been using and in many ways it is better. Not only does it hold considerably more sugar water, but it is easy to disassemble, clean and refill. The built-in "ant moat" also solves one of our summer pest problems with the feeders as well.
It took a couple of days for the birds to get used to sitting still to feed, but now they far and away prefer the Big Gulps to the other feeders. The Big Gulps at each end of our line of feeders empty as fast as the smaller ones near them. Since we have nine feeders in a row, the larger capacity is important too, as we are still refilling all of our feeders at least once every 24 hours. You may not be dealing with the same volume of Hummers that were are here, but even for more casual use I can definitely recommend the Big Gulp.
