Served with a Twist

Hummingbirds are natures flying jewels, bringing a flash of delight with their colorful, shimmering feathers. Attract more of these little beauties to your garden with this playful gem of a hummingbird feeder. It's made from bright copper wire that's twisted into coils as playful as the little birds it attracts. Three dangling red marbles will help get their attention, drawing them to the red-capped glass tubes used to hold their nectar (not included). The tubes are easy to remove, refill and clean. The frame of the feeder is bent into an S-curve, and the bottom loop can be used for hanging plants, wind chimes or other whimsical details to your outdoor display. Handmade in the USA.

John Hill

When John Hill, Co-Founder of Holland Hill, was growing up, he worked for his father in sheet metal, and helped fabricate and install many copper roofs and hoods.

This experience lead to John's creation of the Copper Bird Feeders now marketed by Holland Hill. Items made of copper are in effect heirlooms, as copper is malleable (it bends but doesn't break), and copper is extremely slow oxidizing (it doesn't rust). Plus copper provides beauty that deepens with age. Under the guidance of David and John, Holland Hill products are proudly made by craftsmen in the North America (Mexico, Missouri).

    The feeder has been in place for a week and I have not seen hummingbirds yet but I was late in the season putting the feeder outside. Time will tell.

      Comments about WHIMSY HUMMINGBIRD FEEDER:

      I bought this a year ago and we all loved it. Our house burned down in Oct. and the heat broke the drinking vessels which bummed us all out because we loved watching the Hummingbirds drink from it.

      I bought it again for my husband who was very touched and we are using it in our temporary house and is a big hit with the local birds.

      If you want an abundance of Hummers, this is for you!

          Returned the product as the tubes are VERY small (maybe 5" if that). Was very flimsy and as much as you would have to re-fill the small tubes, it wouldn't last one season. Received the item and one of the counter weight beads was split. Not at all the quality that UnCommon Goods usually carries. They accepted the return and paid the shipping. UCG customer service ROCKS!

            Comments about WHIMSY HUMMINGBIRD FEEDER:

            I bought this for my husband who loves the garden. Not only is it a small work of art, it works! Almost too well. We attracted so many hummingbirds I was refilling 2 or 3 times per week. When rinsed well the tubes come out sparkling clean. We left for a week and our teenagers were in charge of cleaning and filling. Yuck, we came home to moldy tubes. I soaked them is a few drops of bleach, hot water and all was fine.

            On a side note... I'm buying this again for my husband for Christmas. We had a house fire end of October which blew out onto our deck. The copper was fine but all the tubes were broken. This will put a smile on husband's face, and he hasn't smiled too much lately.

            BTW the copper bird feeder with places to "screw" on fruit and bowl for nuts or berries is also a well made, attractive garden addition which birds just adored. They would scoop out all the fruit of an apple and only the skin would remain! Picky little things. LOL - We were lucky enough to witness a young family of redheaded woodpeckers bring their babies to our feeder for their first solid meal! Amazing! Eight woodpeckers in one place! That did not get ruined by the fire thank goodness.

            So... short story long, We love it!
