Nice video ctnchpr!

Care to explain what the second feeder is on your list of videos? Is that a home made feeder? Was it hard to do? Looks interesting from the side!

Thanks, eigdeh! That's a homemade PVC feeder. It started as almost a joke, but it turned out to be a very nice feeder. It may not look it, but it's easy to maintain and it puts the hummers in what appears to be a very comfortable feeding position. You need to have a lot of hummers to make it practical. Here's its evolution over the past 3 years -

Wow!!!

Amazing feeder, I applaud your creativity! I can see why those feeders are supported from the bottom rather than being hung!

I don't have the volume of birds to use one of those, but I think Steve should look into getting in contact with you! :c)

Did you think about making a window feeder version of that? Bottle on one side and not in view of the window, ports only on the outside? That would be pretty cool!
