The Best Hummingbird Feeders at a Glance

How We Chose the Best Hummingbird Feeders

First, we looked at the top-reviewed brands, putting a priority on the material, as plastic feeders are generally more affordable and hold up better over time in terms of breaking/cracking. We also put a priority on red feeders (or some mixture of red) as hummingbirds, in particular, are drawn to the color, as the flowers they eat tend to have red in them. Next, we researched the overall ease of cleaning with the feeders we selected, so they aren't a headache to maintain. Lastly, we evaluated the price of the feeders, giving a diverse range of price points within our list to meet all different types of budgets. The end result is a well-vetted roundup of quality hummingbird feeders that are affordable.
