A bird feeder with all the features it needs


This bird feeder is a little pricey, but also looks to have all the features that correct what is wrong with so many feeders. It has two trays, a small perching one for the little birds and a larger tray underneath that bigger birds can stand on and peck away. The design is clever in that the large tray catches the seeds that the small birds scatter. That keeps the seed off the ground and away from the squirrels and other pests.

The feeder also has a squirrel guard so the squirrels can't climb on the feeder pole to get at the seed. The feeder we have in Boston, has a squirrel proof door on the feeder that closes when a large mammal or bird lands on it, but seed still falls to the ground and the squirrels seem quite content with knocking against the pole, scattering seed and getting their food that way. The larger underneath tray should eliminate that problem.

The base if free standing and the whole unit weighs 11 pounds. The tube feeder itself slides down the pole for easy cleaning. You can rinse the tube out with a hose and slide it back up and be done. Very slick design.
