Usually a lot tackier
than a normal bird feeder
, this is a glaring red
with a glass tube
and four flower
that you hang from your eave
. You fill the glass with sugar water
, and the hummers suck it out through the flowers.
Tacky as it may be, hummingbirds love them, and if you have any in your area, they'll soon come around. The bright red plastic is a requirement, since hummingbirds are naturally attracted to the color.
Hang it in the sun, so that you can see the iridescent color of the birds as they feed.
