The Rebirth of a Timeless Feeder

Inquiring minds want to know…what is your favorite style of bird feeder?

A classic tube feeder? Maybe a traditional hopper feeder? Or could it be a new-fangled seed or suet cylinder feeder? All excellent choices!

But, many passionate bird feeding hobbyists would all share the same answer. Their choice would be the simple and timeless tray feeder.

Why? Because birds love them! A tray feeder provides birds with the easiest access to the widest range of food types. They find a tray to be a comfortable place to land and feed. It also makes them feel safe, since a tray provides birds with an unrestricted field of view to avoid being surprised by a hawk or other predators.

And speaking of unrestricted views, no other bird feeder provides a better unobstructed look at the birds for your maximum viewing pleasure.

Got squirrels? In the past, tray feeders gave squirrels easy access to food. But, no more. Hot pepper bird foods came to the rescue by providing a quick and easy solution to the furry critters.

So, the time has come to restore the tray feeder to its former glory.

Grab a bag of WBU SunFire® Chips or Fiery Feast® and hang a FeatherWeight Hanging Tray in your backyard and see if you don’t agree that this timeless feeder quickly becomes the new favorite for both you and your birds.
