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.
These are perfect covers for my hanging platform feeders. They keep the seed dry while allowing easy access to fill them and allow me to see the birds while they are eating.
The cover for the window platform has worked perfectly even during our historic Colorado bomb cyclone event a few weeks ago! The winds were horrific and the blizzard intense, but the cover held up well.
I love this little feeder! It's my second one. I had the first one for many years, until a straightline wind knocked it to the concrete and broke it. I like the open design. It looks like it's easy for the birds to access the seeds, and it's big enough for several to feed at once. The seeds can get wet during a heavy rain, but the mesh bottom helps them dry back out. I would recommend it to anyone who loves to watch the backyard birds.
A great transaction, fast and efficient.
Big enough for all our birds!
So far, so good! I have it mounted on our deck railing where we can see it from the kitchen window and the birds and the squirrels both like it. I have to keep a rock in it because after the squirrels have eaten all the bird seed they pull the bottom out.
Love the Green Solution fly through bird feeder and so do the birds!! It's durability is a huge plus!
