PRODUCT STORY
The hummingbirds in your neighborhood will have it made in the shade this summer, when you hang up this cool feeder for them. With a design suggesting a covered picnic pavilion, the feeder has two textured glass nectar basins. They each feature a tiny perch, and a red glass flower through which the birds sip their food. Sheltering this nectar buffet is a roof made of upcycled guava nectar cans, which still display their colorful labels on the upper surface. Comes with a hook for easy hanging. Made in Mexico.

Recycled tin cans vary in pattern/color, making each feeder unique.

Hummingbirds flap their wings thousands of times per minute, so they deserve a nice, shady spot to relax and have a drink! Would the hummingbirds in your neighborhood love to take shelter in this uncommon design?

I didn't even have to read the product story to give my thumbs down. This looks cheap and ugly. I would not buy this product.

At first i thought 45 bucks was way too much but the glass looks like good quality and the tin roof is cute. Probably not something I'd put in my yard but I know a few people who would

You might be able to get $45 if the roof didn't look el cheapo grande. Upcycled? Really? Who coined that term? Must have been a bad year for the guava cannery...

Yeah it is not really my thing however, I see this thing a lot around at up scale shops and they sell out fast. The price seems right for it considering it has glass ware. It looks nicely done. My Gran would have liked to have this.

This takes a nice product, hummingbird feeders, and cheapens them by putting a cardboard awning over them and hanging them in an old milk bottle rack. Not attractive. Would not want to hang in my yard.

This is probably the most unattractive hummingbird feeders I have ever seen. A unique feeder would be a great gift but not this one.

The price is ok for it, but I don't like the roof; I would rather it be one color or a nice design because the rest of the product looks really nice and the roof looks like it was just slapped on there.

This looks like something built by children during their kid-sessions at the public library. And for $45?

I love hummingbirds, but always look for feeders that blend well in my garden and are classy and attractive, and I agree with many of the comments about the look of this product. The 'awning' is the problem, if it were a parasol or flower shaped it might sell better, but it looks tacky like this.

I like this item and I would display this at my house. Only thing is that if not kept out of the rain, the patio covering will rust as I know the guava juice cans do.

Having 15 years experience with these birds, I have to say they do not eat 'together'. Humming birds are very territorial and fight. If you are quiet you can hear their beaks click when fighting!

I too love hummingbirds - but this feeder would not work well at all in my garden from an aesthetics standpoint. Also, nearly all hummingbird feeders are gravity fed and I can't see how the heck these birds would be able to feed. Finally, it does not look easy to clean, looks like a great ant trap and I'd be concerned with it's durability. Also, as another person commented, these birds are extremely territorial and would most likely never feed two at a time.
