I first bought one TWENTY SIX years ago and I'm still using it! I've bought 2 more since then. The birds love it and I love it. It doesn't tip, doesn't spill, it's simple, and it really pulls in the hummers.
The other one they love is the little "space station" kind, #211. They zoom right to it when they first see it in the spring, even before this one. (Must be evolving to recognize that shape!) :)
Best hummingbird feeder!! February 12, 2012
I LOVE this feeder! And the hummers love it also! I've been using Perky-Pet hummingbird feeds for more than 20 years. I wouldn't buy any other hummingbird feeder. High quality! Long lasting! Perky-Pet is the BEST on the market!! I give Perk-Pet hummmingbird feeds as gifts. My friends & I try to be the first to spot the first hummer of the season. Then we spread the word to fill the feeders.
Review Posted on Amazon.com June 15, 2011
I just ordered an additional three of these hummingbird feeders. In the past I had used several other hummingbird feeders -- until I discovered this one. The GLASS bottle holds a lot, is easily cleaned, & is practically indestructible! (Mine has even survived a black bear "attack," though the plastic bottom was not as fortunate.) I would highly recommend it.
Great Customer Service June 10, 2011
I purchased a hummingbird feeder several years ago and it got put in a garage cabinet. I recently "found" it and I wanted to hang it up with our other feeder. When I opened the box I discovered that the red cap that screws on the top of the feeder was missing. I sent an e-mail to customer service and within 2 days another cap was in the mail at no charge to me. With many corporations today customer service just doesn't exist. but Perky Pet has outstanding customer service even YEARS after the sale. Thank you!

By Far the Best! June 08, 2011
Reviewer: Jill C.
I bought one of these back in 1984. I still have it! Mine has the yellow bee guards on it. This feeder lasts, sunlight, rough handling, etc. nothing ruins this wonder! It is so easy to fill, tie to a tree branch, and storing it for winter are all a breeze! I have bought fancy hand blown glass ones, ones from other manufacturers, but the Perky Pet feeder is by far the best!
Love these feeders! June 07, 2011
I put up several feeders and have 5 of these. I love the size. I have a lot of hummers so with this one holding so much I don't have to fill them so often. I also like that there is nothing around the ports that makes it difficult to see the hummers when they land. LOVE 'EM!!!
Hummingbird Feeders June 07, 2011
I have this Hummingbird feeder#209. I bought it about ten yrs.ago,and it is still serving it's purpose. We are so happy to see so many Hummingbirds in the last week of May. Some migrate through,but a lot stay,and nest. I have two other different type of Perky Pet Feeders and the birds love them the best. They are the sturdiest ones I own and will buy more in the future. Don't stop making these models. I live in the Central part of British Columbia, Canada
The Hummers Love It June 07, 2011
Reviewer: Theresa C.
I've purchased several different varieties but never get the results as I do with this one. The hummers love it and the bees/wasps can't get in. Do have problems with ants but a little Vaseline on the ring at the top works great.

Reviewer: Mr. Doe
I bought this feeder for my mother on mother's day as a replacement for one that broke. She was thrilled with the new one, it's large size, and the construction as it was an improvement over her old one. She has always been happy with Perky Pet products as they are a great company and come through with parts when needed. You'll be fine buying a #209!
Review Posted on Amazon.com June 02, 2011
I love this feeder because it holds so much. Also you can easily remove the little perches so that other birds can't get at the nectar. Made from heavy glass so stays cleaner and lasts longer. Well designed.
Model 209 Hummingbird feeder May 23, 2011
21 years ago I purchased your model #209 Hummingbird feeder at the Royal Gourge gift shop in Colorado. It has served us well all these years here in Ohio. One season we had 23 Hummingbirds at our feeder, we had to buy another feeder just to feed them all. But sadly we had a bad storm tonight and the feeder was blown from its hanger and crashed to the ground breaking the base. I'm so glad to see that you still sell them so I will be able to replace it with another one. I trust I will get another 20+ years of service from the next one I purchase, weather permitting. Thanks, Beetle Bailey
Perky-Pet all the way March 31, 2011
I use Perky-Pet products exclusively for my Hummingbird and Oriole feeders. I keep an extra supply of glass bottles for the 209 and have nectar ready to go after washing out the perch/tray. I store the bottles with soda lids in the refridgerator and make 6-8 at a time. Here in Carpinteria I go through 39 quarts a week at peak season. Thank goodness for Costco and 50# bags of sugar!

Reviewer: lWV birder
This is exactly what i have been looking for... this feeder is not available in our local stores. Had one many years ago, and finally found another. The 209 Model is the best they make. Wide glass jar mouth for easy cleaning, landing perches. And great price. Much better that plastic ones that discolor and crack with sunlight. I bought three.
Please Make Perches Available! September 09, 2010
I have now purchased six #209's and while I have tried various other hummingbird feeders over the years, this #209 is absolutely the best and most preferred by the hummingbirds I've fed both in S. California and in Missouri.
The perches on each eventually broke and in the past I purchased replacement purchases, which makes sense. In today's world we should all try to keep things sustainable and replace "parts". The hummingbirds prefer to sit and eat, so I give in and buy new feeders, but it seems so wasteful. Please advise where perches could be purchased. Thank you!
Review Posted on Amazon.com August 18, 2010
Reviewer: Suzy B
Annually we have hummingbirds come to feed at our home in Colorado, but this year, with four of these new feeders we were absolutely overwhelmed! All four feeders had to be refilled daily due to the unbelievable number of hungry birds! They were awesome to watch - often one on every single station, with several others hovering awaiting their turn. We've used a number of different feeders over the years, but these are by far the best.
Review Posted on Amazon.com August 17, 2010
We now have a total of 8 of these hummingbird feeders and the hummers love 'em. We use our own home-made sugar water w/ no food coloring and are changing them out about twice a week.
Feeder 209 August 08, 2010
For many years Ihave used 12 of the 209 feeders. Tried several others, but these draw hundreds of hummingbirds each year.
One helpful hint, my husband discovered, the feeders are brought in to be sanitized and filled with fresh nectar. Each time we took the filled feeders back outside, there were always drips as we walked. Brillant husband this year suggested that I fill the 30 oz feeder, put a two liter soda lid on the feeder to carry them outside. Once outside, I take the soda lid off and put the feeder perch on before haning them. Brillant - no more dripping nectaur to clean up between the kitchen, garage, and deck.
I would suggest that bottle caps be provided with each feeder. Hummingbirds are at their peak 08-05-2010 in southern Indiana. My absolute favorite part of the summer!
Feeder Comment June 27, 2010
I have to agree with the two other reviewers that I see on the web site, except to say that I actually wrote a note to ask about the perch and I was told that there was no replacement and that I would have to get the entire bottom assembly at a cost that almost equaled the cost of a new feeder. I haven't gotten a new one yet, and the one that I have, and have had for years has nothing left of the perch, so they have to fly for their food, but they do! I love that feeder, and although I would like to replace the perch and have even thought about manufacturing my own, (which I have not done, but am still thinking about), I also think that I may buy another to have a second feeder out on the porch. We have hummers all year, although fewer in the winter where we are in Southern California, and we very much enjoy watching the beautiful little critters.
Great Feeder - can't find replacement parts May 29, 2010
Reviewer: Lil Joe
I love these feeders, and the hummers do too. But after storage, the perch ring easily breaks. I would love to see a replacement ring offered. I am in dire need of two of them. The glass bottle is very durable and lasts forever. I would love to get your feedback.
the perch May 05, 2010
I'm on my 3rd one of these feeders, love them...But the only thing is a little bump in the wrong way & the perch breaks. do you sell the replacement part, the wagon wheel that screws to the bottom of the feeder. I need 2 of them now, hopefully I won't need the 3rd one any time soon.
The Best October 29, 2009
These feeders are THE BEST! We have two of this size plus an 8oz. and a 16oz. We start out small and end up using the two 30 oz. and fill them every 2-4 days depending.
There weren't as many hummers this year as in the past...don't know why...maybe because of the extra cool weather this spring and summer. Please don't ever discontinue Perky Pet feeders.
Review Posted on Amazon.com October 22, 2009
Bought this feeder based on the good reviews i read here and LOVE it. And that is mainly because the hummingbirds LOVE it! Lasts a long time till it needed refilling (yay for the high quality LARGE glass container) and love seeing the birds visiting regularly. We already had hummingbirds around each day, but now there seem to be a lot more, everywhere in our garden, not just at this feeder. The birds must be humming and the word is out. =)
great feeders August 12, 2009
Reviewer: Mc Pete
We have had 8 of these for many years. They hold up well and with replacement parts they keep functioning for many years.
We keep at least 4 up all summer and switch out for the other 4 as needed to keep them all clean. We go through at least all four needing refills once a day and sometimes more. The birds love them.
great but wish bigger August 01, 2009
We have 2 of these, along with two smaller of a diff style & have to fill all twice a day. It's a great feeder, our hummers love it.
We like that it has flat flowers, is glass, larger capacity, doesn't drip, and that it has the wrap around ring for them to sit on...the hummers can easily sit together and share a hole.
I wish it came in 48 ounce, none of the 48 ounce has the ring perch, only individual perches.
5 Star May 12, 2009
Hi I've tried half a half dozen types of feeders and this type and style is hands down the best. It is also one of the largest on the market and is handy if you have lots of hummers. We have four this size and fill them every 3-4 days.
The best feeder July 27, 2008
I have 4 of these feeders and they are wonderful. Easy to clean and fill. The birds seem to just love them. When all the stations are full they sit down next to another bird and wait or they swarm around until an empty spot comes open.
The only problem with this feeder for me, and it's not the feeders fault, is that it just doesn't hold enough. I fill four feeders EVERYDAY during the summer time. I may try the big "master" next time. I love my hummers...

Reviewer: C. Eklund
Wonderful feeder! Very durable and the large size enables fewer fills. I have had one (of three) for many years and it hasn't shown any wear though it hangs in full sun all summer long.
Review Posted on Amazon.com January 09, 2007
Reviewer: G. D. Viveros
I love to feed those little hummers, and this is the only feeder I will use. It has a large capacity so I don't have to fill it very often. I have four of these feeders on my deck. My hummers love them, and I love to watch them hang out near them. There are always 10 to 20 hummers either eating or buzzing around near the feeders. I highly recommend this feeder to anyone who wants to feed hummers.
Really IS a June 08, 2011
Reviewer: Kristin M. A.
This really IS the "classic"....the main problem I had with mine was that the little perches/bars around the bottom, got brittle and broke off...due to the heat of the sun. Otherwise, it's a great feeder! Holds LOTS of sweet water, and feeds lots of hummers! :-)
great feeder March 01, 2010
I have a number of humming bird feeders and this is one of the best. Its large capacity durable glass water bottle and well laid out feeding stations make it one of my best feeders.
I'd rate it a 5 but it is a little hard to clean and fill as the jar mouth is small. I use a funnel to fill it. But overall I'd buy another one when I need one as I haven't found a perfect feeder yet.
bees and woodpeckers September 23, 2012
This brand of feeder was my favorite til the woodpeckers realized they could remove the the yellow flowers. Now the bees have access into the feeder.
RESPONSE FROM PERKY-PET
SEPTEMBER 26, 2012
Thank you for reviewing the Perky-Pet® Our Best Feeder (model 209-6). This feeder has been a long time favorite for avid hummingbirders. We are happy you agree.
To help protect your feeder from unwanted birds like woodpeckers you may want to consider removing the perches. Hummingbirds are able to hover to feed and do not need to rest on a perch like larger birds. To help prevent the woodpeckers from standing on top of the feeder to reach the ports try hanging a shiny pan or old or blank CD as a baffle above the feeder.
I have to say this is a nice looking feeder and the hummingbirds seem to be attracted to it but we are having two problems with it. First off, when the wind blows-and it blows nearly every day here- the feeder rocks back and forth and will empty itself in one day without a bird ever landing on it. The other problem that we have with it is the plastic wrapped wire that it uses to hold the feeder. It will unwrap itself slowly and if you do not keep a close eye on it will completely unwind and crash to the ground. Ours has done this twice in the short time we have used it and has had to be glued back together after crashing on a landscape block of concrete. If this piece of wire was lengthened we could tie a knot in it but there is not enough length to do that. If these two things were remedied it would be a much better feeder.

Thank you for sharing your experience with the Perky-Pet® “Our Best” Feeder (model 209). We appreciate your feedback! Your suggestions concerning the length of the red hanging wire included with the feeder has been shared with our product managers to be reviewed in our quality control process.
Hummingbirds prefer to feed out of the wind. If it is possible it is recommended to place your hummingbird feeder in an area protected from wind. This will ensure that hummingbirds are able to enjoy your feeder. For more tips and tricks on bird feeding please feel free to visit our Learning Center.
