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.

William A. W. from Manahawkin.NJ
Loved the tray feeder, however, would like to have speed nuts to keep the steel rods on. The first time a squirrel got in it, one of the rods came out and we had feed all over the ground.

These feeders, which are hard to find, are great for all of the visitors who come to my yard to include Opie the Opossum. I purchased the first one I had 8 to 10 years. The only fault I might mentioned is the ends pop of the frame so I'm headed to Lowes for some metal end caps. Great product, I asked the birds for a testimonial and their response was "This is great, there's room for all my family, cousins, aunts and uncles to eat. Thanks backyard chirper"

The birds love it especially on snowy days. The tray is easy to fill and clean. We replaced a hopper type feeder which caused the seed to get wet when it rained or snowed. The roof gives it protection from the elements. It's nice and roomy for all size birds. Very happy with the purchase.

I purchased two seed savers one for me to replace a eighteen year old one that stood to rain, heat, hail and wind, ice and snow but lost in a EF3 tornado hit to acreage. Keeps mealworms or miracle meal well with good access that can be regulated by moving dome, second seed saver was a gift for Mother in law she is very pleased.

The birds congregate and enjoy using this Fly-Thru platform feeder. I love that its recyclable and very easy to clean and it will not rot like wood products usually do under inclement weather. The shipping of the product was prompt and the packaging was excellent. I was very impressed with this bird feeder when I took it out of the box because its substantial and its exactly what I wanted for the Birds. They love it and I do to. Thank you.

The feeder is larger than most, is very sturdy, withstands the harsh Texas summers, and is very easy to clean. Many birds at a time can use. I love these feeders. They are the best I have ever found and I have been feeding wild birds for about 20 years now.
