Hummingbird Feeders Made Of Glass - The Healthy Alternative For The Birds

Glass hummingbird feeders are simply put the healthiest types of feeders for hummingbirds around, not to mention they are a great gift for any bird lover. Most of these feeders are made with style, elegance and beauty in mind. Afterall how wonderful it is to sit in your garden or patio and watch those little lovely creatures feeding from the gorgeous feeders set up specially for them.

It has been proven over and over again that plastic is unhealthy and is non-degradable material. It's simply not good for our environment.

They are truly a feast for the eyes lying there sprinkled throughout your garden, attracting the colorful birdies to them.

Enjoy browsing the gorgeous selection of glass feeders for the little hummingbirds attracted to your garden!

Why Glass Makes For A Great Type Of Hummingbird Feeder

I love watching hummingbirds in my spare time, especially when I'm at my parents' house where they have plants that the birds love to feed from.

My dad added a few feeders in the backyard and while watching him, I noticed what he liked to put as best feeders. First of all, they should be easy to clean and fill, and they should be strong enough for a long lifeshelf.

The only problem I find with glass feeders is that if they fall on a concrete surface, well, they break, but with care such a feeder can last for a long time, especially when the glass is rather thick - which is the case for most feeders these days.

Also I like the glass feeders because they are simply much more attractive than the plastic or metal. I love the little flowers painted on the feeders, they make them really attractive to the hummingbirds (and to me as well!). Also have you noticed that many glass ones have red accents on them (in the form of flowers or other decorative elements). Well, this is to attract the hummingbirds to them.

When it comes to the glass top feeders, those are great because it's easy to remove the lid for filling the rather wide opening with the nectar.

How to Clean Your Glass Hummingbird Feeder

The feeder has usually water with sugar that is dyed red to attract the hummingbirds (they are attracted to the color red for some reason, that's why you see most of these feeders painted or at least accented with red).

To keep the hummingbirds coming back for more nectar, the feeders need to be regularly cleaned, and here a few steps to do it quickly and the right way.

First if all rinse out the feeder with simple hot water - don't use soap or other chemicals, as if you leave by accident any soapy residue, the hummingbirds will not drink from it again.

For a bigger cleanup, about once every month leave the glass feeder in water with bleach and check for any signs of mold. If you find any mold, don't wait for the next month, clean it out right away. Sugar does attract mold, so be weary of the first signs.

Once the feeder is clean, rinse it well and then add the syrupy woater that you regularly use. My dad likes to add the red dye in the water to attract these birdies more.

      I love the moon and stars hummingbird feeder. We bought a hummingbird feeder this year in memory of my Mom - we always enjoyed seeing hummingbirds when we visited her house.

      We don't have any at our place, but there are always humming birds at the family farm when we go there each summer.

      You have a beautiful selection of hummingbird feeders here. I am partial to the pineapple looking one.

      When I was younger we had lots of hummingbirds and hummingbird feeders. These are beautiful. If I had a garden and hummingbirds I would surely "serve" these little guys with one of these feeders.

      My guess is that they will go for the pina colada one! Well, I would if I were a hummingbird. Beautiful.
