Some styles are difficult to "classify" like the fancy copper-roof gazebo feeder below - are they "hopper" or "tube-style" feeders?  Hard to say, so we've posted many of the most popular "specialty" feeders below.

bluebird at High Pointe

Not all birds eat shelled seeds.
To attract those that eat fruit and insects (bluebirds, mockingbirds, robins, and even warblers and thrushes) try mealworms, berries or other fruit, seeds without shells (hulled sunflower), and suet. Many seed eating birds like woodpeckers and chickadees also enjoy fruit and bugs, too.

mealworm larvae & darkling beetleWhat is a "mealworm" (you ask)?
Mealworms are insects, not really worms. What appears to be a worm is the larval form of the darkling beetle. They make excellent feeders for small mammals, reptiles, and birds. Eager to learn more? Check this site sponsored by Wikipedia, or try searching Google.   We do not have "live" meal worms in-stock at this time.

Mesh Screen Feeders & Socks

niger seeds - when viewed close-up - resemble miniture cucumbersNote: Niger seed ("Guizotia abyssinica"), also called thistle seed, appeals to the colorful songbirds who flock to it as if it were a magnet. It is a tiny oil-rich seed of a thistle-like plant, imported from Africa or India. Niger is not a crop that is grown domestically (US) in significant quantify - though many agri-businesses are testing and studying the potential for a domestic crop someday.

Elegant Bird Houses and Feeders for Your Gardens

"Built Like a Tank"
We have met several manufactures over the past 20 years that claim they make elegant, highly decorative bird houses and feeders that are "garden-statements" however the bird houses and feeders from Bill Kincaid the best we've seen in any price range.  Bill personally makes his products in Atlanta, Georgia. They are sturdy; in fact some people say "they are built like a tank!"   Bill uses 1" thick, moisture-resistant cypress, mahogany and cedar woods that will last for generations. The roof shingles are cut from western red cedar (using a band saw), are ¼" thick and the lower edge has a lovely scallop produced with a router. The shingles are further enhanced with copper roof boarders secured with copper "boat nails" that come from Norway.  All wall surfaces are primed and given four coats of the best exterior grade latex paint that ensures its lasting beauty. All of Bill's houses and feeders include a bottom support that securely slips over a 4 x 4 post for mounting.

so who is this guy, J.J. Cardinal? click here to find out...J.J.'s Seed Feeder Selection Tips
The type of feeder you select will determine the species and variety of birds you'll attract to your backyard habitat. Birds the size of a blue jay or larger have difficulty dining from perches found on most tube style feeders; so if you desire only small songbirds consider one of the many tube style feeders. Interested in attracting the entire spectrum? Adding a seed tray to the bottom of a tube feeder helps manage debris and provide perching surface for larger birds, who also enjoy hopper and platform style feeders. Still stumped? Our library is filled with great resources, or one of my articles on feeder placement.
