Platform Feeder Selection

A platform feeder is a great fit for those just beginning the hobby of bird feeding, as it is hassle-free to set up and simple to fill. Unlike a hopper feeder, which is hung from branches or awnings, a platform bird feeder either rests on a pedestal or is mounted on a bird feeder pole. It is also ideal because of its ability to serve both ground-feeding and perching birds.

Platform bird feeders are available in a number of stylish designs, including popular fly-through models, which feature an open-air wood frame that is particularly attractive to shy birds. Each and every platform feeder at the Backyard Chirper is sold at an affordable price, allowing you to experience the pleasure of bird feeding without breaking the bank.

Lucy L. from Iowa City, IA
One of the best feeders ever! My birds love it. It is so easy to clean too. I wish I had room for more of them! It is well constructed and should hold up through our harsh winters.

I just installed my feeder yesterday and am already loving it, as do the birds. It's very well-built and the size is great. It's a little pricey considering it doesn't come with a flange or a pole, but I still think it's going to prove to be a great investment. I've been wanting a tray feeder for a while and with the hopper, now I can enjoy the benefits of both types of feeders. Also, I loved how the shipping was free and extremely quick. I would definitely buy from this website again.

Love it, the birds much more than I do Very very easy to clean and use, design is very pleasing to look at and blends in well with other feeders

Mary Ann L. from Torrington, CT
My favorite feeder, very sturdy and sits high off the ground, so less deterioration. Easier to clean and fill as well. Hard to find, so I bought extra. Extremely happy with the product. Birds feel safer, squirrels and skunks can fit underneath and get fallen seeds as well. Our woodchucks like it also.

Even though I haven't had any orioles yet, I really like the feeder. Made of recycled plastic, it is a very well built feeder.

Best bird feeder we have ever had. Why? Durable construction with stainless hardware and will last for years, good looking as color blends in with surroundings, great design with easy clean trays and oversize roof for rain protection.

Great for hummers - keeps the orioles out of their area. And the other feeder I purchased is more favorable to the orioles.
