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!
The bigger the hopper the more it will hold but don’t it believe because you are told they’ll never wear or start to look old a true statement of confidence-maybe a bit bold! New for 2104, large and extra huge capacity hopper bird feeders that will have you doing way less filling and more time relaxing & enjoying backyard birds. Not any old hopper mind you, our best selling feeders for six years straight just got even better! So what’s fuss? Although these may look like wood, they’re done in vinyl, which means they will not deteriorate. No warping, mildew, rotting, peeling, cracking or splitting… it’s guaranteed! It took a long time asking and begging to create something besides our original gazebo feeders. They’re quite stunning, but a tube only holds so much seed. If you’re serious into birds like us… you know what we mean. Even the smaller size hopper accommodates ten pounds of your favorite seed mix, and we’re talking the chunky nut mixes that birds love so much.
With a majestic copper roof, these large capacity hopper feeders come in hanging and post-mount styles, and the copper is always available in traditional or patina on each model. Post mounted feeders come with a vinyl mounting collar and decorative brackets as shown – at no additional cost. The best part is that it slides right on your standard 4×4 post. Large seed tray invites lots of feathered friends to feed at once, and offers ample drainage to keep seed dry.
Custom made to your liking, our new vinyl hoppers are by far the largest capacity feeders out there. And ready for this? The larger size is a monster – holding 20 lbs. of bird seed! Now that doesn’t mean one has to fill them all the way, the square design itself is new, and a nice option with its clean lines and an architectural appeal.
Still in the making below, we especially love the generous seed ports. Look closely at the material, a few customers have called over the years insisting these were wood. No shiny plastic-looking stuff here… first class all the way, beautiful in the landscape and made to last!
This past winter it seemed like spring was taking forever. Ease up – too much bird food, we’re going through this stuff like water! Once it warms up the birds will eat less, right? Wrong! It seems we’re going through just as much seed now as we did in when it was cold? Sure a few unwelcome grackles and starlings put a dent in the supply, but omg… seems like bumper crops of cardinals, and chickadees, and titmice, and woodpeckers, and nuthatches, and finches, and well, you get the picture.
Last summer the drought was to blame for vanishing natural food sources, but we’ve had rain galore in the Southeast. Something I’d never witnessed last year: a male cardinal feeding his fledgeling from the hopper bird feeder onto the ground, back to the feeder, and back to the baby below. It was a pretty cool sight, but also sad in a way. He would’ve been teaching that baby how to forage and find food in the wild… had it all not shriveled up 🙁
That’s why it gets me in the gut sometimes when folks say “I don’t feed the birds in summer”. It’s got to be up there with turning the birdbath over for winter. Wild birds are wild indeed, if a food source disappears, they’ll move on to find another. Just seems once you’ve attracted them with feeders or bird baths, it should be a consistent source. Call me the crazy bird lady!
Oh yeah, and the whopper of Hopper Bird Feeders? This durable cedar model with ample perching space offers two different seed mixes for maximum bird attraction! A large seven quart capacity and two removable seed trays makes it easy to clean and fill. Great quality, made in the USA makes it last too!
