Shiny, happy copper will light up a recipient’s face when the box is opened! How would we know this? Recently at a local show, our copper bird feeders were the buzz of the day. Someone had even walked down to see what the “glow” was all about. Yes, they’ll glow in direct sunlight.
Gazebo post-mounted feeders are done in PVC/vinyl to make them completely inert. Impervious to the elements, the vinyl lasts for life, but the real beauty to us… they look like wood. Over the years many customers have told us of woes with their wooden feeders that have rotted. These were majestic, and beautifully crafted (and expensive too) but their life expectancy wasn’t quite commensurate with the price tag.
We’ve not had one complaint nor return for these copper feeders and birdhouses in eight years, so we’re pretty darn confident in our product! From small to large, and huge capacity hoppers, we know the birds LOVE them too!
Gracing the landscape with timeless elegance, architectural styles abound in different shapes with an aged patina copper finish as well. This is an acid wash done via heat process, so the color remains… 10-20-30 years down the road. The shiny roofs will stay that way for about 3-4 years before starting to weather. When copper weathers it gets dark, this aging process creates a very dark brown tone that takes many years to actually patina. The bright copper may be preserved (prior to weathering) with a quality copper polish applied every year.
Another stunning copper feeder is done in stained glass, and guess what? It glows in the sun too! Hand made with the most vibrant glass colors, this one hangs to entice feathered friends. Both copper bird feeders provide plenty of perching space and drainage to keep seed dry. Using quality materials, both are meticulously crafted to last for life.
A gift of nature offers usage everyday, by birds and recipients. A glance at the feeder has the capacity to remove one from swirling thoughts and to do lists! There’s no batteries and no plugs… which is what allows one to simply unplug!
It’s our hope and mission to entice more folks to backyard birding through shiny, happy feeders like these 🙂
Oh yeah.. the show!
Larger seed feeders seem to be banished to the backyard, likely for the best viewing options. Sometimes on the side of a home, but you do occasionally see them in the front. Some folks may place a beautiful birdhouse in the landscape… simply for the aesthetic. But those who actually feed the birds are serious!
Gazebo style feeders offer a traditional architectural accent, some with Victorian flair, others even more creative. But the tube, the tube’s the problem for the serious backyard birder. They’re relatively small, holding maybe one or two pounds of seed. With winter still hanging on and natural food sources depleted, birds have been ravenous around feeders. And with spring bulbs already forcing through the ground, migratory friends will soon arrive (whether the weather cooperates or not!)
Enter the post-mount hopper bird feeder with ten-pound capacity and majestic appearance. A distinctive accent for the landscape, it’s definitely worthy of the front lawn. Because the roof is copper, and that’s actually vinyl/PVC (not wood) its appearance remains new. In fact it’s guaranteed against rotting, cracking or warping. Vinyl will not mildew, making it a healthier feeding surface for birds. Bacteria and mold have nowhere to settle, no deep, dark cracks or crevices in which to grow.
Hopper style feeders like these are one-time investments in the landscape with ideal functionality to entice feathered friends. They’re simple to fill, clean and are virtually maintenance-free. An aged patina finish is offered, as well as a hanging model. Lots of options with easy installation too – slides right on a standard 4×4 post, brackets included as shown.
Save 10% through 3/15. Use code MC10 and feed the birds in high style… now come on spring!
Tired of filling puny feeders every other day? With migrations under way bird feeders are likely to be seeing increased activity over the next few weeks. Food and fresh water greatly help migratory birds on their way south.
These stunners pass for wood, in fact you’d swear they were wood… but they’re vinyl. The kind that’s used in housing construction, so you can bet it’s durable and everlasting! As is the copper roof, whether bright and shiny or aged patina, the 16-gauge copper (with brass rivets) also lasts a lifetime. These feeders will never warp, crack, mildew or split to boot.
Now for the best part… (drum roll please) the hoppers are definitely whoppers! In two sizes that are both fairly large, these hopper bird feeders hold 10 and 20 lbs. of seed. The traditional post mounted feeder is complete with decorative brackets (also vinyl) and a newer hanging style offers more flexibility for placement in the landscape. Even the finials are a composite resin to ensure there’s no deterioration whatsoever.
There are houses to match, and lots of folks purchase them for the aesthetic flavor, a timeless elegance in the garden. But it’s the folks who purchase feeders who actually feed the birds! So if you’re looking for a really large capacity feeder… look no further! Probably a little more than the planned spend, we can guarantee these feeders will never require maintenance and will certainly never need to be replaced.
For a thorough cleaning, simply take the garden hose to it with cloth in hand. For any build-up of environmental grime, a little soapy water is all it takes to revive the crisp white color. If there were ever a product we couldn’t be more proud to offer… it’s our time tested and bird-approved hopper feeders!
