How to make hummingbird feeder tubes

Postby Nell В» 05.01.2020

For nearly half an hour the movie contains neither dialogue nor music.

Hummingbird feeders can get pretty expensive. What can be more green that feeding a beautiful specie of nature, while recycling at the same time!

Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. We are using a drill bit slightly smaller than the diameter of the copper tubing. This way, when we fit the copper tubing into the cap, there won't be mush extra space. Water bottle caps sometimes have a little piece of plastic right in the center of the cap, so you can use that as your guideline.

When you finish drilling the hole, try to remove and excess plastic pieces that are in the cap. Take your copper tubing, and measure 6in. I made my feeder with about 2in. Mark the six inches , and then take your hacksaw and cut the piece. Take the piece of tubing you just cut, and push it through the hole on the cap that you just drilled.

You want it to be fairly snug, and if it is too loose, then find a new cap and drill a slightly smaller hole. If the piece of tubing is secure, then we can move on. Take your sealant, and on both sides of the cap, place sealant around the tubing where it is in contact with the cap. This will be crucial when we fill it up with feed. Then let it dry. To be safe, let it dry for a good 24 hours. Do not bend it to a right angle, about degree angle would work.

Time to build the device that will hold the feeder up. Find a metal clothing hanger, and clip off the top hook, and you can discard it. Now stretch the hanger out into a straight line. On on end of the hanger, make a little hook. Now wrap the one end of the hanger the side with the hook around the mid-section of the bottle. As the end with the mini hook meets up with the rest of the hanger, clip the hook around it, securing it to the bottle.

The third picture will help you visualize this. Now, on the other end of the hook, make a more rounded hook, big enough to that it can hook on to wherever you want to hand the feeder up.

Fill the bottle up as much as you can with a hummingbird feed. Here is a recipe that I found via Thrifty Fun , Bring 4 cups water to a boil and stir in 1 cup sugar. Stir to dissolve. When cool, pour into the pitcher and refrigerate until needed.

The above recipe is relatively simple, and very inexpensive, as opposed to purchasing hummingbird feed straight from a store. Pour your feed into the water bottle, screw the cap on tightly and securely, place the feeder up, and there you go! Reply 1 year ago. OK I made one all the water drained out as soon as I up ended it. I used a cork instead of the cap but it sealed off the water when I plugged the tube end. So no air getting in there.

Any ideas? Reply 8 years ago on Introduction. Question 1 year ago on Introduction. Reply 5 years ago on Introduction. Reply 7 years ago on Introduction. Reply 10 years ago on Introduction. Just melt a candle and add a few drips to the cap. Cheap, earth-friendly, and nontoxic use plain wax, not scented, just in case or bubble gum.

Interesting but not safe for the hummingbirds, the sharp edges of the cut copper tubing, may hurt them When you cut any kind of metal, it leaves VERY sharp edges, that needs to be file. Does the angle on the pipe keep the nectar from running out? Or does it drip? I don't want to attract bees or hornets to the ground under my feeder. Reply 11 years ago on Introduction. The wonderful concept of gravity keeps the liquid in the water bottle. At the tip of the pipe, it pools a little bit, so when the hummingbird comes to feed it sucks it up.

And yes, the angle on the pipe does help to keep the liquid from draining out, because the more air in the top, the more will be pushed out. Ah,gravity, that's the thing that keeps us from floating off of the earth, right? I can't wait to try it out! Chriself, Brennn10 is It is the wonderful concept of air pressure that keeps the water in.

As water is removed from the bottle by the birds, a vacuum is created inside the bottle. The pipe diameter makes a difference: roughly speaking, a wide pipe means that the air pressure is spread over a greater area so for a square-inch-area-sized pipe the pressure is The bend in Brennn10's pipe is helping because it is restricting the area of the pipe.

If the bottle is not rigid enough, the sides will collapse, reducing the volume - and therefore the vacuum - in the bottle, allowing gravity to win for a bit. Good design, that. Introduction: Water Bottle Hummingbird Feeder.

It's generally a good idea to hang your feeder where it wont be exposed to direct sunlight, since 1 sugar solutions can ferment, and 2 sunlight tends to accelerate the hukmingbird process.

Red food coloring will not harm the birds. If you want to read more hummingbirds to your lawn or garden, you may either plant flowers that hummingbirds love or hang a hummingbird feeder filled with a solution of water and sugar. Gently shake and swirl the bottle until the sugar dissolves. This text can be changed.

A single hummer, in fact, will drink about twice its weight humminggird syrup roughly 40 percent of its weight in pure sugar every day. All you need is 4 cups water to 1 cup sugar.

Some bird watchers maintain that the way to bring hummers to the patio is to hang a feeder near flowers that've already attracted the birds, then — feecer a period of several days or weeks — move the feeder progressively closer to the http://tophapfilmreapp.tk/amazon/adidas-atric-backpack-amazon.php or the place where it is hoped here birds will eventually hover and feed. Tip Clean your feeder each week. When cool, pour into the pitcher and refrigerate until needed.

All you have to do is wait quietly, with your camera cocked, until the hummers pose which I swear they'll do Hang the bottle upside-down from a sturdy hook.

Cut a piece of gauge wire half again as long as your bottle is tall. It's not a bit unusual — for instance — for one of my tiny visitors to hover within a few feet of my head while I'm hanging a refilled feeder. Be careful not to crimp the tubing.

The above recipe is relatively simple, and very inexpensive, as opposed to purchasing hummingbird feed straight from a store. Now round up a couple feet of thread or fine wire and secure the ends of the thread or wire to the vial's sides with scotch tape as shown. The red color does not need to be present to attract them. Unfortunately, the dram containers are usually amber colored, and the color turns off the hummers. Plowing With Source.
