I want to give gifts for Christmas and want to make hummingbird feeders from bottles. I need to know, can I make my own feeding tube or do I need to buy them? Thanks.

How do you make a hummingbird feeder from recycled plastic bottles?

These should help you. (09/24/2010)
By the way, Walmart had nice hummingbird feeders for $4.99 last year. We bought 7 of them, and the pre-made food and tied the recipe card " how to make the refill food" to the kids' Christmas packages. (09/25/2010)
I have seen hummingbird feeders made from 2 litre pop bottles. Does anyone know how it is done?

There is actually a kit you can buy to convert a 2 liter bottle into a feeder. The brand name is Gadjit. If you Google it, you'll see what I'm talking about. You can also buy hummingbird feeder "tubes" that you can put into any bottle-type container. They look like a cork with the familiar tube that the hummers feed out of. Just Google "hummingbird feeder tubes" and you will find them. They are relatively inexpensive. (10/01/2009)

I can't afford to pay $10 or more each for Hummingbird feeders. I would like to find an economical way of making my own.
