Simple & Versatile Window Bird Feeder
When the simplest of designs works so well – it can be called ingenuity!
These is one great little window bird feeder and it really fits that bill. First, the powder coat metal ensures many seasons of use and enjoyment. Complete with drainage hole, they’re the perfect size for feeding mealworms, fruit, suet, or seed mixes. Easily change up the menu according to season. Second, the extra large suction cup means this window feeder will stay stuck to windows.
In vibrant colors, this fun little window bird feeder is not only versatile, but (reason three) the open design gives a great view of feathered friends too. Nothing in the way to obstruct your view of birds. Inexpensive, functional & fun; what more could you ask of any product?
