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.)

My hummers have not discovered this new feeder yet, but I know they will. In the meantime, I love the appearance of it staked into my deck flower pot, and plan to buy 2 more for the other pots. Beautifully crafted, so simple and easy to use...thanks! Kate W.
