This feeder's 40 oz capacity is a boon for peak summer periods when multiple hummingbirds stop by to feed. Instead of running out of nectar every day, this feeder handles high traffic for multiple days. Big Gulp features a wide-mouth, glass bottle for easy filling and cleaning. The colorful red base features 7 ports and perches to welcome multiple hummingbirds at one time. The base disassembles easily for cleaning. Feeder cap and no-drip base are made from sturdy polycarbonate; the nectar bottle is glass. A built-in ant moat on the top of this feeder helps keep the nectar free of ant contamination. Simply unscrew the base to fill and clean. Includes S-hook for easy hanging. Holds 40 oz nectar. 8" x 8" x 10.5" high.

Cleaning Your Big Gulp Feeder
Standing over a sink, disassemble the base by unscrewing clockwise from nectar bottle. Empty out contents of nectar bottle. The base comes in two parts that come apart easily. Wash all surfaces of base and nectar bottle with warm water and a nontoxic (preferably unscented) dish soap/water solution. Rinse thoroughly, dry and reassemble base.
Combine 1 part white sugar to 4 parts water. Bring to slow boil for 2 minutes. Excess may be stored in refrigerator.
Hummingbird Feeder Placement
Hummingbirds, especially males, can be very territorial when it comes to nectar sources, and may chase away any competitors that try to use your feeders. The best way to deal with the occasional greedy customer is to offer several feeders, in different locations. This gives timid hummingbirds a place to feed when a single hummingbird is overprotective of one feeder.
