Captivated by the mystery and behavior of hummingbirds, William O. Sloan (a.k.a. “Pop's”) began the quest for opportunities to spend more time observing these amazing creatures. Armed with American ingenuity and an innovative spirit, Pop's came up with a truly original idea – a swing to serve as a resting perch for hummingbirds – that also gave enthusiasts the chance to observe these magical birds.
Today, the third-generation, family-owned company is led by Pop’s granddaughter who continues the legacy by growing the line of 100% Made-in-USA innovative products. Together these products, combined with the responsibility and commitment to education and training, work to help birders – at all levels – create thriving sanctuaries that attract and sustain these gifts of wonder!
At Pop’s Birding, we take pride in creating the most innovative hummingbird products in the world. From our Original Hummingbird Swings, to our specially-designed products and nectars, our mission is to make it easy for hummingbird lovers everywhere to experience the magic and wonder these special birds provide.

Where should I place my swing?
We recommend hanging your swing no more than 1 ft away from a feeder or nectar rich flowering plant, eye level with the food source and away from trees or other competing perching spots
How do I hang the swing?
You can use the included screw hook to hang your swing or hang from any s type hook to hang from a garden pole
Does your nectar contain red dye?
There are no harmful dyes in our nectar. Our formula is clear with no dyes or preservatives. It is a myth that you need to add red dyes to your feeders to attract hummingbirds. The feeder alone will attract your inquisitive hummingbirds and additives such as dyes can be harmful to their diets.
How long does nectar stay fresh?
Our Nectarade shelf life is 2 years when unopened. After opening, if stored in a cool dark area in its original packaging the nectar will stay fresh for weeks (or months when refrigerated). Nectar in a feeder may only stay fresh for a few days depending on how hot it is in your climate.
My “bully” hummingbird chases the other birds away, how can I invite more hummingbirds to my yard?
Try adding a variety of feeders and swings placed far away enough that they are of sight from one another. This is the best way to encourage territorial hummers to get along.
How often should I change my hummingbird nectar?
In especially hot climates you may need to change feeders every 1-2 days. As a best practice, try filling feeders half way full so you can clean and provide fresh nectar more often.
What are some good nectar-rich flowering plants to attract hummingbirds?
Brightly-colored flowers that are tubular hold the most nectar, and are particularly attractive to hummingbirds. These include perennials such as bee balms, columbines, daylilies, and lupines; biennials such as foxgloves and hollyhocks; and many annuals, including cleomes, impatiens, and petunias.at are some good nectar rich flowering plants to attract hummingbirds?
