I've only had this feeder a few weeks so I don't know how durable it will be. The hummers seem to like it a lot and visited the feeder shortly after it was hung. It looks very nice and hasn't leaked at all. I love that it has a perch ring. I think the hummers prefer to perch when feeding from it. Communication with this company has been outstanding. They replied to my question within 24 hours. Shipping was fast and the feeder was packaged very well. All in all a great experience so far.
