Hummingbird Feeding Tube DIY Repurposed Bottles as Hummingbird Feeders
This Hummingbird feeder tube is made for hanging hummingbird feeders. The feeder tube has a white rubber stopper and a durable clear curved hard plastic tube that has a red soft plastic tip. This stopper is ideal for use in DIY hummingbird feeders made of re-purposed bottles of most any type. These hummingbird feeder tubes fit all hummingbird feeders made and sold by Texas Hill Country Ceramics and can be used in many popular hanging bird feeders made using bottle ends of all kind.
The cone shape rubber stopper measures:
• 1 inch long.
• The widest portion is about 1 inch in diameter X 5/8 inch in diameter.
• A clear curved plastic tube is fitted into the narrow end of the stopper and extends about 2 inches.
• The end of the tube is fitted with a soft red plastic tip.
• The entire feeding tube and stopper is about 3 inches long.
Here are some tips for using Hummingbird Feeder Tubes.
For best results fill the bottle completely with cool nectar early in the morning. This type of feeder depends on gravity and differential air pressure (inside and outside the bottle) and temperature can affect the pressure.
Hang the feeder in the shade. The hot sun warms the liquid, which alters the air pressure and causes the liquid to be forced out through the tube. This can cause feeder tubes to ‘drip’ or ‘leak’. Hanging feeders in the shade also helps keep mold from developing in the bottle and helps the nectar from souring.
Hang the feeder where it is sheltered from wind. Being tossed and swinging in the wind can cause the nectar to leak from any type of feeder.
