This hanging hummingbird feeder is cast from a vintage ceramic mold using terracotta clay, it is kiln fired. The inside of the bird feeder is glazed with a food safe glaze making it waterproof so it is easy to keep clean. The outside of the feeder has been white washed accenting the embossed design of a hummingbird feeding on a trumpet morning glory flower.
The terracotta humming bird feeder is approximately 7 3/4" long X 3 3/4" in diameter. The feeder comes with the feeder tube, it fits in the bottom of the feeder so birds can obtain the sugar water nectar. The feeder holds approximately 3 cups of nectar. The feeder has a built in loop at the top for easy hanging.
A tip for attracting hummingbirds is "the more feeders, the more birds." For an average yard, 7 to 10 feeders spaced apart will work best. This keeps the dominant hummingbird from ruling the roost. Hummingbirds will feed more during their southward migration than northern migration, this is due to breeding season. Consistent feeding year after year will attract generations of hummingbirds. The key to attracting hummingbirds to a new feeder is have them up when hummingbirds first arrive. April and May are normally good target dates.
