Offer all of your favorite songbirds a treat using the Droll Yankees Covered Platform Bird Feeder. The traditional shape of this item invites many birds to dine, and its wealth of features is matched only by its versatility. The 13” diameter, base tray holds up to 2 quarts of feed, and its open design is perfect for many of your feathered friends. Fill the bottom dish with safflower or sunflower seed to invite cardinals to dine, or add peanuts for the delight of jays. It can also hold mealworms, suet, or fruit, for orioles and bluebirds to use the piece. The generous, 15” diameter dome keeps the treat protected from rain and squirrels, and can be lowered along the brass rod for further protection from the elements or to create a songbird selective station. Drainage holes along the base tray allow any capture water to exit, keeping the seed dry, and a raised lip along the edge provides birds with perching spots. The clear, polycarbonate unit keeps feed levels visible at a glance, and is stabilized against ultraviolet rays to keep from yellowing. A hook at the top of the durable, brass rod enables the item to hang with ease, or it can be pole mounted using a 0.75” threaded adapter (not included). Turn your backyard into a busy bird garden with this Covered Platform Bird Feeder. Made in the USA. Lifetime guarantee.
Note: If pole mounting this feeder, you may need to purchase a pole mounted squirrel baffle to protect the feeder from squirrels.
