I tried using Periscope and for the last half the sound did not work so I had to resort to doing the ending again and editing/joining the two with YouTube so here is the instructional video for those who are interested.
You can make a single bottle feeder by just using one bottle.
you will need:
Empty Glass Bottle
Needle nose pliers
Bling or as I call it a little sum-umm, sum-umm(optional)
12 Gauge aluminum(copper colored wire)I get mine here. Use a bit more than 5 ft. per bottle
Feeder tubes, I get mine here
Natural Hummingbird Nectar I get mine here. Please don’t use the red type, it has dye in it and I wouldn’t want the hummingbirds ingesting it. Thank you and the birds thank you, too!
Watch this video by clicking here and it will make more sense. But, take your 5+ foot of wire and begin at the neck of the bottle and wrap around taking the end and wrapping a few times to hold, continue wrapping the wire up the bottle, go from the neck to the bottom and make sure that the wires cross in a few places. Bring the wire loose end back up and under some of the points where the wires cross and wrap a couple times through to make it hold a bit better. Do this in 2-3 crossing areas, finally ending at the top(actually the bottle base, but it is the top when upside down). Take the loose end and com up and over to make a hanger and find a place on the other side to loop it around the last circle of wire around the bottle.
**NOTE: I like to bling up my feeders so I use recycled broken jewelry, buttons, etc, and as you wrap the wire find opportunity to wrap on a little bling!
Mix your nectar and fill the bottle.
Insert the feeder tube VERY securely or all the nectar will be lost.
If you want to make a trio of feeders make three of these and then take about a foot of wire and run it under and around three of the bottle together. Make sure the Red Wolfberry side of the bottle is facing out and the ingredient side faces towards the inside. After securing the 3 bottle together, take the 3 loop hangers at the top and just twist them all together! Voila! Now go quickly and put them up and watch nature do it’s work.
