Just because the weather gets bad doesn't mean your birds have to go hungry. The Droll Yankees Dorothy's cardinal bird feeder is the perfect way to provide birds a safe and dry place to eat year-round.

This 13-inch platform feeder, which holds up to a pound of food, gives you the option to offer different types of bird seeds, depending on the species you want to attract. It can even hold suet and mealworms.

But the main draw of this simple feeder is the adjustable 15-inch dome that's designed to protect the food from the elements of nature and keep away larger birds. Not only is the dome height adjustable but it's made from UV stabilized polycarbonate plastic, which means it will not yellow with age and exposure.

The fact that you can mount this USA-made feeder on a pole or hang it with its 16-inch brass rod means you can put the feeder exactly where you want.

I so liked the first one of these feeders that I bought that I purchased this second one! The birds love it. I have had all kinds of birds love it and eat from the tray---they feel safe since they can see from all sides and fly through the feeder if necessary. I had cardinal parents with their first brood and then their second brood after they fledged all eating from the feeders at the same time---and then doves, blue jays, chickadees, and titmice eating from the tray surface, with woodpeckers eating peanuts hanging from the edge. The plastic overhang keeps the feed reasonably dry unless there is rain blowing sideways. Can't wait for the migratory birds to find these feeders as the fall migration goes on!

This beautifully constructed bird feeder is an excellent example of "made in USA" craftsmanship. It came fully assembled and set up was a breeze. It has high quality components which means this feeder is going to last us for years to come. The birds have to wait in line to get into the feeder it is so crowded. We have 2 of them now.

Once the Cardinals became familiar with the feeder, it is well used.

In 1969, Peter Kilham developed the A-6F tubular bird feeder, leading to a new and exciting approach in bird feeding. As an artist, engineer and inventor, he cared about using quality materials and innovative design to create a feeder that birds loved and people found easy to use. Still a best seller, the functional simplicity of the A-6 preserves its place as the standard in the industry.

At Droll Yankees, we continue to strive to maintain the high standards of design and functionality set by Peter Kilham. We're proud of our feeders and the legacy of being recognized as makers of the world's best bird feeders.

We Birds

We’re a company built on bird lovers. When he’s not updating the blog, our director of community is out birdwatching in the mountains of Southern California. Just the slightest glimpse of a bird at one of my feeders fills me with joy. To us, birds are more than a means to sell products; birds are a way to connect with nature.
