Here are some tips to consider when selecting a hummingbird feeder:

1. One of the most important considerations in choosing a hummingbird feeder is: is it easy to clean? Hummingbird feeders need to be cleaned and refilled with fresh nectar every 2 days in hot weather. That is because hummingbird nectar, which is composed of sugar and water, can mold or spoil easily in heat. So frequent cleaning of the feeder is essential to the health of your hummingbirds.

2. Examine the hummingbird feeder you are considering buying and take it apart. Unscrew the bottle from the base and take apart the base. If you are considering a highly decorative feeder, make sure it meets the easy-to-clean criteria.
