This super amazing hummingbird feeder! It was designed by a rad chick in Tucson, Arizona, who worked as a Zoo Keeper and tended to hummingbirds at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. If you want one, we urge you to consider buying from the original artist, rather than a knockoff from an online retailer: https://www.copperhummingbird.com/gallery
