Coco Quin, I think this would be a good question for you, since you’ve tried so many hummingbird feeders, 😉 but any answers will be appreciated. I made these hummingbird feeders myself, but do you think they can/will use them? I know they drink with their tongues, but I don’t know how long their tongues are, meaning I can’t be sure that they will be able to reach the sugar water once it gets low. With these dimensions, (#3 & #4 have the same dimensions, and #1 & #2 have the same dimensions), do you think they will be able to reach the bottom?
Huh, just wait and see. but some look like they are too low for the hummers to reach it. I have a photo of a male hummer with its tongue out, (the photo is not very good). The beak of this hummer is about 1′ and the tongue is about 1′ too. But this is the smallest species in North America and beck sizes vary. Yes Coco would be the best person to answer you.
Thank you Micah. That is helpful. You should check out this video from a website I found:
One website said that the bill of a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird is 15-20mm long.
But I can’t find anything on how long their tongues are. 😕
Oh my gosh! One just came to #3!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😃😃😃😄😄😄😆😆😆👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Can you send me a link on how to make these? Thanks that would be awesome!
