Top Fill Feeders

What’s the best way to bring hummingbirds to your yard? Hummingbird feeders!

Perky-Pet® has specifically designed feeders that attract and nourish these colorfully feathered friends – providing them with an important supplemental food source: nectar. (Because of their extremely high metabolism, hummingbirds burn calories almost instantaneously and need to consume more than their weight in food each day to survive.)

Turn your backyard into the perfect place for hummingbirds to feed, hover and perch. You and your family and friends will enjoy hours of fun watching them perform unimaginable aerial antics as they make your place their place to feed.

Perky-Pet ®Top Fill Feeders are one of the most popular hummingbird feeders, and are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. Most include the color red, which, of course, is one of the hummer’s favorite colors. And to make your hummingbirds feel more at home at your feeder, each port is decorated with a soft, life-like flower.

A Perky-Pet ® Top Fill Feeder is ultra-easy to fill. There’s no need to turn the feeder upright. It already is! Just pour and hang to attract and feed those colorful feathered friends. Not a drop of nectar will spill and the hummingbirds will hover the moment you ring the dinner bell.

Hurry! Your hummingbirds are waiting!

Not only are Perky-Pet® Top Fill Feeders easy to fill, they’re equally easy to clean. Top Fill Feeders all have a removable base and removable petals for thorough cleaning. You’ll do this clean up regularly once you realize just what a breeze it is to do!

Here’s a bit of advice: To make sure your nectar doesn’t overheat and spoil, try to place your feeders in a shady part of your yard. And if you can, surround them with colorful hummingbird-friendly flowers of red, pink and orange. Plus a fountain nearby really attracts hummers!

Perky’s Finest Top Fill Hummingbird Feeders

Perky’s Finest Top Fill Hummingbird Feeders incorporate the most innovative technology to date. These feeders are made of hardened glass or shatterproof plastic, and come in different shapes and sizes. They are perfectly suited for your hummingbirds to have easy access to the essential nectar you provide. Perches encourage hummingbirds to take a load off and save some much needed energy.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to fill the reservoir: simply remove the lid, pour nectar through the wide-mouth opening and replace the lid. When the reservoir is filled, nectar flows into the base via a valve where a floating, lifting disk rises up to stop the nectar at just the right level, ensuring no spills. As the hummingbirds feed, the valve accurately discharges nectar in the proper amount to keep the ports filled. Voila! In seconds your feeder is in operation. With these beautiful glass feeders, your yard is sure to become the neighborhood hummingbird hot spot!

Bottom Fill Hummingbird Feeders

Hummingbird feeders are an excellent way to attract the iridescent Hummingbird to your yard. These feeders are specifically designed to hold nectar (sugar solution), an important supplemental food source for the winged beauties.

Bottom Fill Feeders

Would you like to attract gorgeously iridescent hummingbirds to your yard? Of course you would! What could be more interesting and exciting for avid bird-watchers and novices alike then seeing those tiny birds in action?

A great way to do this is with a Perky-Pet Bottom Fill Feeder, a true complement to any yard or deck. The reservoir has only one opening at the base! That’s where you remove the feeder portion to fill the unit. It’s the most basic and traditional type of hummingbird feeder to use. Just fill these with nectar – turn them upside down – and they’re ready to hang.

Thinking Outside the Feeder

Some styles have a bee guard, which consists of a plastic screen in front of the port or a raised port to prevent bees from gaining access. Other styles have an added “anti-ant” feature called an ant moat. Fill the moat with water to prevent ants from coming down the feeder to the nectar ports. Feeders can also have perches on them – hummingbirds will feed with or without them, so it’s your choice whether you want to provide that little bit of extra comfort.

Perky-Pet® offers 3 styles of bottom fill hummingbird feeders: Traditional, Funnel and Window.

Traditional Bottom Fill Hummingbird Feeders

Perky-Pet® sells several variations on the traditional style hummingbird feeders (usually referred to as ‘bottom fill’ feeders).

These feeders have an extensive track record of traditional bottom fill hummingbird feeder durability, success and a consistently high hummingbird approval rating (HAR). The Perky-Pet® “Our Best” Glass Hummingbird Feeder has a large capacity reservoir that holds 30 ounces of nectar! With 6 feeding ports and a unique, circular perch design, there’s plenty of food and space for lots of tiny hummingbirds. The clear glass makes it easy to keep an eye on nectar levels. And when it comes time for refilling or cleaning, the reservoir simply unscrews from the feeder. This captivating, elegantly designed feeder serves a dual function; it attracts both hummingbirds as well as their passionate and dedicated human admirers.

Funnel Fill Hummingbird Feeders

Perky-Pet® offers two different, patented designs of funnel bottom fill hummingbird feeder funnel-fill feeders. The first has a cone-like, recessed bottom which functions… well, like a funnel – for fastidious pouring and easier filling. This unique design makes it easy to keep the reservoir full; you don’t need a spout, external funnel or any other accessory. And you never have to worry about spilling again. After filling the glass reservoir with nectar, just replace the plug and invert the feeder to activate the feeding ports. Nectar channels in the base regulate the amount of nectar flow into the feeding station, helping to keep the nectar fresher longer.

The second design is equally as straightforward; it incorporates a removable cap that can act as a funnel when put in the bottle, again, making pouring easy and minimizing spills. Filling your Perky-Pet® Hummingbird Feeder has never been easier! These Bottom fill Feeders have a 16 oz. reservoir made of durable glass, and 4 feeding ports.

Window Mounted Hummingbird Feeders

How can you get any closer to your hummingbirds? It’s Window bottom fill hummingbird feeder easy! Perky-Pet® also carries window mounted, glass hummingbird feeders. Just like the other two styles, these are bottom fill feeders; same clever design, same simplicity and ease when it comes to filling and cleaning. Their uniqueness lies in the fact these easy-to-mount feeders attach right to glass. Place it on the window where you spend most of your time so you can watch your hummingbirds from the comfort and convenience of your den or kitchen.

You’ll get a fantastic close-up view of your feathered friends in action. The Window Mounted Glass Hummingbird Feeder includes two suction cups for window mounting; a 14 oz. tempered clear glass nectar container and two sculpted, flower-feeding ports – with perches. The hummingbirds are so close you feel as if they’re practically residents!

Antique Bottle Hummingbird Feeders

We’ve brought back vintage times with our antique bottle hummingbird feeders!
Antique Bottle Hummingbird Feeder

In the old days, liquid containers were often made of thick, deeply etched glass. Aesthetically pleasing, nostalgic and substantial, these bottles are a collector’s dream. We’ve recreated these relics of bygone days as hummingbird feeders for our favorite flying friends. We’ve taken the antique bottle shape, turned it upside down, added a sturdy metal hanger at the top, and a lip opening under the metal perching tray at the bottom.

Simple to fill – with only three pieces to open and close – the antique glass bottle easily screws into the pewter, copper or brushed silver metal tray base. Beneath that is a plastic support to reinforce it. The thick antique glass bottle holds up to 10 ounces of nectar, and the base has four flower-shaped feeding ports to give your iridescent beauties good places to feed. Best of all, the unit doesn’t drip or leak.

More good news: the antique glass bottle feeders are remarkably easy to clean and to keep clean – and that’s so important! For healthy and happy hummers, a clean birdfeeder is a true haven. Mold is less likely to form in glass feeders; but you can never be too sure. Clean yours out every three or four days for good measure.

Antique Bottle Hummingbird Feeders are available in clear, cobalt (blue), ruby (red) and sea green glass. Choose the color you like best, or select all four to brighten up your backyard with splashes of bright color. And, you can also select the glass that has either swirls, light lines or delicate squares etched in.

These glass hummingbird feeders are a “perfect concert” of classic styling, easy assembly, simple clean out, and flock-worthy appeal. Your family and friends will notice them, but more importantly, so will your vivid, vibrant hummingbird visitors.

They make a great gift for any hummingbird fancier … or for you.
