Ruby Sipper® Duo Hanging Hummingbird Feeder – Double the Ruby Sipper Fun!

Nectar Needs: Hummingbirds need to feed between 5 and 8 times every hour, so keeping your feeder well supplied with energy packed nectar is crucial, especially in early spring when natural flower nectar and insects are not as readily available. Making your own nectar instead of using a premade mixture is easy and ensures there are no preservatives or coloring. Just mix 4 parts water to 1 part sugar. You may choose to boil the water first but it is not mandatory. Regular table sugar (sucrose) is what hummingbirds seem to like best and it is the most digestible for them. Regular tap water is fine to use. If your water is hard, it will give birds extra electrolytes. If it is soft, add a tiny pinch of salt to each quart of nectar but don’t overdo it or hummers won’t drink it. Nectar will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Do not use any red dye, honey, brown sugar, or sugar substitutes, as they could all be harmful to hummingbirds.

Cleaning: Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees HummerPlus Bird Feeder Brush to brush away grime inside the saucer.

Designed for Hummingbirds

Feeding wild birds is one of the best ways to impact the world around you. The simple act of putting out a bird feeder and keeping it clean and full can greatly improve the chances that birds and their offspring will survive. Many backyard bird watchers believe that birds only benefit from feeders during certain times of the year. However, birds actually have a year-round need for reliable, steady food sources.

How do I open the Ruby Sipper? The cover and dish are stuck together.

For whatever reason, sometimes the Ruby Sipper cover and dish compress in transit. After the initial separation of the cover and dish, you shouldn’t have any sort of issue going forward. Here’s a troubleshooting trick we use to help with this type of situation. First, locate the plastic tab, which is located on the lip of the dish under one of the red “petals” on the cover.

If tab is under small upturned petal: Hold the sides of the dish in your hand using your fingertips, placing the side of your thumb between the perch and the plastic tab. Press inward and then push downward to open the cover. If for some reason that isn’t working, hold the dish of the feeder with one hand. With your other hand, use a Dime to wedge between the plastic tab on the dish and the upturned small red petal. Slowly twist the dime, and this should cause the cover to come off of the dish.

If tab is under large downturned petal: Hold the dish of the feeder with one hand. With your other hand, use a nickel to wedge between the plastic tab on the dish and the downturned large red petal. The nickel should be able to reach so that it can be slightly wedged in between. Once the nickel is wedged in between the large petal and the plastic tab, lightly push upward on the nickel. This will create a type of jack that should cause the cover to detach from the dish.

Please remember to put the cover back on the dish by lining up the plastic tab, on the lip of the dish, underneath one of the small upturned red petals.

    The little cups are extremely difficult to open. It says to line the tab on the bottom up to one of the upturned petals on the top, but neither part will budge so I can’t do that. It’s nearly impossible to get a decent grip on it because both pieces are so small and close together, and it just feels like it’s going to break if I try any harder. I’m returning it immediately.
