Give Birds a Reliable Food Source
You have your favorite places to eat, whether it’s a quick bite or a really nice meal. You trust and rely on them, never considering they might run out of food. Birds are similar. They constantly check their food sources. They may stay and eat a while or just grab a quick bite. But, they want to know they can rely on that food source when weather is good or bad or when times are abundant or lean.
So in order to meet your birds’ needs, it is important to have at least one foundational feeder that dependably provides food every day. Studies have demonstrated that a constant, and reliable source of supplemental food helps to improve the overall health and body condition of wild birds.
This foundational feeder should be able to accommodate many birds at one time like our hopper, tube or cylinder feeders. It should have a quality food that attracts the widest variety of birds like our No-Mess Blend or No-Mess Cylinder. It should hold enough food for at least 4 days giving birds a reliable food source, ensuring you’ll have more birds to watch! Be sure it works for you, too, by placing it where it is easy to fill and easy to see.
Having a foundational feeder in your yard that never goes empty is key to helping birds improve and maintain their overall health and helping you enjoy more birds. Visit our store to learn more about maintaining a foundational feeder in your backyard.
Essential Bird Feeders to Create Your Backyard Oasis
See What's On The Tube Today with Our Seed Tube Feeders
It's always entertaining birdwatching when chickadees, cardinals, grosbeaks, titmice, and finches stack up on our tube feeders. Most birds that prefer to feed at an elevated feeder will visit a tube feeder; our tube feeders are popular because they come in a variety of sizes and seed capacities and efficiently dispense a wide variety of seed.
EcoTough Classic Feeders
Our EcoTough® Classic Feeders won’t crack, fade or rot and has a limited lifetime guarantee. EcoTough® feeders are environmentally friendly, high-quality products made from recycled plastic milk jugs. The Classic has curved ends so you can see birds feeding on both sides at the same time. Perch drains allow the seed to drop out of the feeder for ground-feeding birds to eat, and angled perches let empty seed hulls be blown away by the wind.
Eliminator Squirrel Proof Feeder
Protect your bird seed bounty from squirrels with our Eliminator™ bird feeder. When a squirrel touches the perches or perch ring, its weight closes the seed ports, foiling its seed-stealing plot.
Fundamentals Squirrel Proof Feeder
So long squirrels! Our Fundamentals Squirrel Proof Feeder is weight-sensitive, so when a squirrel gets on the feeder the feeding ports close, denying access to the seed. Birds can use the four perches or they can cling to the metal shroud to feed.
