The Perky Pet #209 Hummingbird Feeder is decent quality and reasonably priced.

The reservoir is glass which means that it is heavy weight enough that it does not blow around much in the wind. Glass is also easy to clean without scratching. The large 30 ounce capacity means that a refill usually lasts about 9 days (your mileage will vary). The overall height of the feeder is about 11.5 inches.

There are six yellow flower feeding ports and a removable full circle perch. Actually, I considered removing the perch one time because I had a problem with woodpeckers sitting on it and feeding. The woodpeckers did eventually peck off a couple of the flowers, resulting in drips, ants, and buying a replacement feeder. Fortunately, the woodpeckers have moved on.

I make the nectar by mixing one cup of sugar to three cups of water. I learned since the photo was taken that some people believe that artificial coloring should not be used, so I have cut the amount back to just a couple of drops.

I am quite happy with my Perky Pet Hummingbird Feeder.
