The Original Bee Proof Copper Hummingbird Feeder

Tucson, Arizona 4892 Sales On Etsy since 2008

5 out of 5 stars
(874)

Announcement   In 2006, invented my bee-proof, drip-free hummingbird feeders while I was a zookeeper at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, AZ where I spent 22 years working with the hummingbird collection.

Hummingbird feeders used by zoos must be able to withstand a great amount of abuse since the food is changed out 2 to 3 times daily with the feeders being washed and sterilized each time. Additionally, bees can present problems by monopolizing feeders. These factors led me to create a feeder that would stand up to "industrial use" (bee-proof, extremely easy to clean and sterilize, almost indestructible).

After a few years of selling my feeders only to zoos, and receiving many requests that I offer them for sale to the public, I opened my Etsy shop.

Simply fill the food-grade plastic jar with a sugar-water mixture at a ratio of 1 part sugar to 4 parts water, place it in the copper holder and enjoy! (Complete usage instructions come with each feeder.)

Looks really good with the copper hummingbird feeder I have. Nice to have the extra length. Shipping was very fast!

This is so nice. I love that there's not a lot of waste changing it every day like the larger feeders. There was a hummingbird on it within five minutes of first hanging it. Super quick shipping, too!
