You can help the ecosystem and add a unique piece of décor to your garden with this Ferris Wheel hummingbird feeder. Bees might be the most recognized pollinator species, but hummingbirds are efficient pollinators as well. Also known as the world’s smallest birds, these tiny birds feed by dipping their long bills into flowers to drink nectar. When they feed, they also pick up grains of pollen that are transferred to the next flowers they visit, pollinating as they go.
Despite their diminutive size, these tiny birds have the fastest metabolism as they need to burn sugar to power all of their energetic hovering flight. But more often than not, there aren’t as many blooming flowers for them to feed on. For this reason, many people are putting up feeders as a supplemental source of nectar. This is to give them the energy they need to fuel their high metabolism. And if you’re planning to add one into your yard, why not get the one that is sure to attract these pollinating birds? We’ve found this Ferris Wheel bird feeder that surely fits the bill.
Ferris Wheel Hummingbird Feeder
This Ferris Wheel feeder will supply a food source for these small migrating birds. Simultaneously, its whimsical design will turn your yard into a fancy carnival. So, it’s like hitting two birds in one stone. Well, that’s not the most appropriate phrase to use here, but you get our point. This unique feeder features a circular frame to resemble a Ferris Wheel. It has three painted glass bottles designed as ‘seats’. Each seat has a perch for the birds to rest on so they can sip the sugar water without the need to hover. Hence, they can save their energy while they feed.
The metal frame is powder coated in red to attract hummingbirds. These small birds are typically attracted to red and other bright colors as these colors represent most flowers that they feed on. Furthermore, the hand blown glass bottles are painted with floral patterns to enchant them even more. Although it looks like a Ferris Wheel, it does not spin for the safety of the hummingbirds.
This cute feeder measures 11 inches wide, 3 inches deep and 16 inches high. To use, simply take out the glass bottles from the metal frame and fill them with sugar water. You can make sugar water by mixing 1 part sugar with 4 parts water. Make sure to stir the mixture briskly with a spoon to dissolve the sugar completely.
