Great Gift Idea
An inspiring addition to any outdoor oasis, this wind spinner and antique glass hummingbird-feeder set by Perky-Pet makes a thoughtful gift idea for any bird lover on your list. Whether it's a birthday, Mother's Day, or housewarming present, the set will delight, providing years of visual beauty and peaceful enjoyment.
Antique Glass Hummingbird Feeder
In addition to its four bright red feeding ports, the 24-ounce hummingbird feeder features a square-shaped glass antique bottle in ruby red with intricate vintage-style detailing. Clean and fill the feeder by simply unscrewing the bottle from the base. Filled with nectar, the decorative feeder invites tiny, darting hummingbirds into your yard--and keeps them coming back for more.
Hummingbird Wind Spinner
With its kaleidoscope of colors and cut-out imagery of an in-flight hummingbird sipping nectar from a flower, the 10-inch designer wind spinner makes a lovely addition to any garden, patio, or front porch. The USA-made ornamental wind spinner features high-quality 20-gauge steel finished in a highly reflective coating, along with a weather-resistant powder coating to prevent rusting and fading. Fully fanned open, the wind spinner will twirl beautifully in the breeze. Swivel hook included.

The red antique glass hummingbird feeder looks MUCH nicer than the pictures illustrate on Amazon - the pictures truly do not properly illustrate just how beautiful this looks. I have a clear glass feeder that is similar in design which I love. When I saw the pictures of the red feeder - I was not impressed. Upon arrival however, it looks absolutely beautiful and I like it even more than my clear feeder. This is made of glass (thick glass - similar to a mason jar) so you do want to be careful in handling it. The bottom securely screws on and it is the same metal as my other feeder which show virtually no wear despite being used for 2-summers now.
The wind spinner easily twists into its shape (illustrations are included - you really can't go wrong in pushing the metal pieces apart to turn the spinner from a flat spinner to a 3-D spinner). I've had several birds land on the spinner while it is gently twirling around - they look so cute; it's like they are enjoying an amusement park ride.
I LOVE these two products and if you enjoy feeding birds and watching the light reflect off of wind spinners as they swirl around, I think you will really enjoy this product. Just don't forget to buy your own second hook so you can attach the two products together if your intention is to hang them together.
This combination pack would have been a 5-star product had the manufacture included the extra hook.
The product info says you can actually hook spinner and bottle together, and some other reviewers were disappointed that the linkage wasn't included. However, we aren't so hell-bent on hanging them as one, so we're quite fine to put them in the same tree, but separated by a couple of feet (see photo).
These items are both decent quality for the price. Someone else complained that the metal on the feeder was thin and cheap -- but having owned uncounted feeders in our time, we have to say, this is par for the course. You don't actually need thick metal, and unless it splashes, the "nectar" doesn't touch the metal -- glugs directly from the glass into the plastic bottom of the bird feeder portion and stops filling below the metal (or it would drip out around the edge).
Some of the cheaper plastic feeders have a ring so the birds can land and sit there while they drink. But hummers don't need this. They're expert at hovering just above the "flowers" while they delicately dip their nectar-sippers into the fluid and extract again, without any need to put down. Because they're such tiny little jewels themselves, they can perch if they want.
In the spring, we get bright yellow orioles on the feeders-- they're sugar-water feeders as well -- and being bigger, they can go through a lot of it. There are specialized oriole feeders you can purchase, but at that time of year, we just put out extra plastic feeders with big bottles, the kind with the rings around the edge so the bigger birds can sit, which they need. Both types of birds go for those, but we also provide this specialized hummingbird feeder, so the smaller birds can always hover and feed.
The nectar you buy in the store is expensive, and comes red, courtesy of food coloring. You don't need it -- especially not with this red bottle. (But then, you don't need the color red at all. Even in clear glass feeders, the birds find the clear sugar-water just fine without adding food coloring to their diet).
The best stuff for your feeder is plain sugar water which you can easily make at your sink. The ideal ratio, according to the experts, is 4 parts water to 1 part sugar. This particular feeder holds comfortably just under 3 cups (let's call it 2.75). SO to do the math, IF you start with a slightly rounded half-cup of sugar, you're just right. We mix ours in a 4-cup Pyrex pitcher. Start with the sugar. Add about a cup and a half of hot water from your tap. Stir until the sugar is totally dissolved. Now top up your water with cold, to your 2.75 cups total. (You can test with a finger -- body temp is fine, you don't want to hang it hot!). Keep stirring -- otherwise adding the cold water may cause the sugar to crystallize in the feeder. Pour your nectar into the bottle and screw on the base -- snug, but not so tight you warp the plastic. Holding it this side up, carry it outside to hang it. We use strands of wire around branches, bent to make hooks. Only now do we invert the bottle in case so that if and when sugar water splashes out, it lands harmlessly on the ground.
Hang it and your ready! Step back and watch the action. Once hummingbirds get used to the spot you've selected, you'll sometimes find them buzzing even while you're hanging the bottle! When there are a lot of them on the feeders, we find the best time to replenish the nectar is after sundown, once the birds have quit feeding. They like to top up just before their long night, so wait until they're done.
While some people want to sterilize their bottles, we don't like to use any harsh chemicals on our feeders. We simply rinse and scrub clean, and if there's anything nasty growing in the bottle, we'll use a bottle scrubber and some dish soap. Then we make sure to rinse it fully (several times). Hummingbird feeders do grow stuff. Bacteria can be introduced by the birds themselves. They dip their beaks into many a flower, and it's natural for them to "contaminate" your feeder this way. And in the summer, lots of microbes love balmy sugar water.
Then there are ants, and wasps, which can swarm your feeders. Not so much you can do about the wasps. We've actually seen them drive away the birds when both species are competing for the nectar. However, they're only really bad in the late summer. The ants are another problem. We've tried many things to deter them, including washing them and the tree off with a hose. However, they're soon back. You can sometimes fool them simply by moving the feeder a few feet to another branch. We have several wire hooks in our favorite feeder tree for this purpose.
Hope that helps! This is a nice set, and we think it's better than average quality for commercial hummingbird feeders -- beautiful to look at, and a wonderful focus of entertainment when the hummingbirds are hovering.
The first thing I noticed when it arrived was how badly packaged it was. It came in an unmarked corrugated cardboard box that was unnecessarily large. There was very little packing material, with the exception of the glass jar which was wrapped in thin bubble wrap, so the entire thing was just kind of floating around in the box. It came with no assembly instructions so I didn't immediately realize that the metal clip and hook that should attach to the top of the jar to hang the feeder were missing. If I intend to use it next spring, I'll need to purchase something at a hardware store in order to hang it up. In addition, the plastic ring attached to the bottom of the jar was broken so the feeding station does not fit securely.
In terms of its decorative value, while the red glass jar is very pretty, the metal feeder at the base is made of cheap, sharp aluminum (and looks likely to rust after one wet New England spring). I should also add, while I had no intention of using the wind spinner, it's even worse than I imagined - overlarge and gaudy. The effect is kind of cool, but I think it would be much classier if it was much smaller and a solid color (like plain gold).
Currently it's hanging by a zip tie near my kitchen window, although I suspect the hummingbirds have moved south for the year. I will use it next year, but am disappointed in the quality.
