Make Perches for a Hummingbird Feeder

The best hummingbird feeders are easy to disassemble and clean, and have perches for the birds to sit on while drinking nectar. The most commonly available hummingbird feeders have a base and a removable nectar reservoir, but no perches. You can get more enjoyment out of your hummingbird feeder by adding perches. The birds will be much more likely to stay for several minutes, and you'll have better luck seeing and observing them. Heavy coated wire can be used to make an inexpensive but effective perch for the birds to sit on.

Steps

    Prepare the feeder. Remove the base from the reservoir and place the base on your work surface.

    Make the anchor wire. Measure around the point where the reservoir attaches to the feeder plus 1" (2.5cm).

    Secure the anchor wire. Bend the last 1/2" of each end of this wire into a little hook. Bend the wire into a circle and hook the ends together. Bend the wire a little more if necessary to make it round. Fit it over the feeder base. It should be a loose fit.
