Hummingbirds are curious creatures that are attracted to boldly colored (not just red!) objects. J Schatz Hummingbird Feeders are designed in bold colors with complementary colored stamens to attract hummingbirds and those that love them. If you feed hummingbirds already please select any color you prefer as hummingbirds remember previous feeding locations and will explore objects in their immediate environment. If this is your first feeder we recommend selecting the Red Hot Hummingbird Feeder as it will be noticed more readily than the other colors in the collection.
EASY TO USE
J Schatz Hummingbird Feeders ship ready to hang and are easy to maintain. Fill the feeder by turning the feeder upside down and removing the rubber stopper. Mix 1 1/2 cups of nectar by dissolving 1 part ordinary white cane sugar in 4 parts tap water. This mixture approximates the average sucrose content (about 21%) of the flowers favored by North American hummingbirds, without being so sweet it attracts too many insects. Pour the mixture into the hummingbird feeder fill hole until completely full in order to form the necessary vacuum to ensure proper flow. Secure the stopper. To ensure that there is no trapped air inside the feeder it is beneficial to have spillage from the fill hole when putting the stopper into hole. When secure, turn over and hang.

GRAVITY FED FEEEDERS
The J Schatz Hummingbird Feeder is a gravity fed hummingbird feeder. All gravity fed hummingbird feeders will occasionally drip due to changes in the atmospheric pressure. To reduce dripping we recommend always filling the feeder completely with cool nectar before hanging. We also recommend hanging the feeder in a location where the drips will not be a problem to clean up.
