Possibly the most well-designed hummingbird feeder you'll ever own. Dr. JB's Clean Feeder for Hummingbirds features an innovative, two-piece base with flow-control design to prevent leaks, even in the windiest weather. Made with high-quality, durable parts, including a glass nectar tube and a two-piece heavy plastic base. The wide mouth of the nectar tube means you won't have any trouble filling or cleaning it. The base disassembles to ensure thorough cleaning, and all parts are dishwasher safe, to save you time - especially if you have multiple feeders to maintain. Outer base comes with a built in perch and features 4 bee-resistant ports. 16 oz capacity. 7" dia x 9-1/2" tall.

Filling the Dr. JB's Clean Feeder
Note: These instructions make an approximate four-to-one, water-to-sugar nectar solution. There is no need to boil water to make an effective nectar solution for hummingbirds.
- Unscrew the bottle to remove it from the base.
- Pour 1/3 cup of granulated sugar into the bottle.
- Add 1-1/2 cups of hot tap water into the bottle.
- Swirl solution in circular motion. Mix thoroughly, until milky.
- Re-attach the base onto the bottle. Screw the base assembly onto the bottle.
- Take feeder outdoors, turn right-side up. The feeder should not splash or spill at all if you quickly flip it right-side up. It won't even spill or leak when it swings back and forth!
- Hang from a stable support.
Try hanging your feeder at a good distance from any human or animal activity, and about six feet off the ground. Hummingbirds are very shy. They will eventually become accustomed to human activity, but they will be very hesitant to feed regularly at new feeders when there are humans nearby
How to Clean your Dr. JB's Feeder
- Unscrew bottle from base.
- Lay base upside down on sturdy, flat surface. Firmly push down on opposite sides of outer rim of base. Inner part of base will pop loose. Do not apply pressure directly to the outer perch.
- Place all parts of the feeder in the top rack of the dishwasher.
