Keep feathered friends well-fed and content with this bluebird-shaped hanging mesh feeder. Its playful design and intricate details ensure the birdies won't be the only ones enjoying the piece! The metal feeder holds around 4.5 cups of seed and lifts opens under the bird's head. The piece hangs from a sturdy chain and hook.
Due to the feeder's mesh design, we suggest using larger seeds to avoid spillage. Seeds such as black oil sunflower, large seed mixes, shelled peanuts, etc. will do best. These mixes will attract many bird types: chickadees, finches, goldfinches, juncos, nuthatches, redpolls, siskins, sparrows, titmice, small woodpeckers, and wrens.
It may take time for birds to discover this new source of sustenance. If after 1 to 2 weeks, you have not received any visitors, sprinkle seeds on the ground to help them find the feeder. Place the feeder about 10-15 feet from a tree or bush so birds can easily retreat to safety if a predator gets too close.
Twice a month, flush with hot water and dry before refilling. For a more thorough monthly cleaning, soak the feeder in a mixture of 1/4 cup white vinegar and 1 gallon of water, then clean with a bottle brush. Rinse with fresh water before refilling.
