Tube-type gravity fed hummingbird feeders are popular with hummingbirds because they simulate the tube shape of many nectar-bearing flowers. However, because of their design, these feeders may occasionally drip. Here are a couple of tips to minimize dripping:
1) Most importantly: always fill the feeder completely full with cool nectar. Insert the stopper and invert quickly to avoid any air entering the feeder. Tube feeders operate on a vacuum principle. The feeder needs to be filled completely for the vacuum to form!
2) Hang your feeder in shade or partial shade. The cooler the feeder, the less likely it is to drip.
