Window feeders are excellent for close up views of feathered friends, but if you have the option, an in window bird feeder is even better! Bringing wild birds right into your home is is exciting, rewarding, and really brings a whole facet to wild bird feeding.
This in window bird feeder allows you to view the feeding birds through a clear panel. It actually sits inside your home and installs easily with dove-tailed, wooden side panels that slide out to fit most windows from two to three feet wide. Very thick wood side panels provide for great insulation and security. And, for added security, the design of this window feeder allows you to completely close and lock the window with the feeder in place. Filling and cleaning is simple from the comfort of your home. Made of plantation grown mahogany and hand crafted in the USA, it makes an awesome gift for any birding enthusiast or nature lover on your list!
Even if your house has the smallest of yards, backyard birding shouldn’t be out of the question. Attracting songbirds does not need to be a complicated task requiring huge spaces. Window bird feeders are a great place to start. Once discovered, songbirds will return daily for treats you offer them.
A myriad of these window feeders are available for birdseed, nectar, mealworms, and suet. These are some favorite foods of Chickadees, Nuthatches, Titmice, Cardinals, Hummingbirds, Orioles, Bluebirds and more. You can even offer fruit and any possible mixture with a window platform-type feeder. Blue Jays and Woodpeckers really go for peanuts on this one. Some window nectar feeders for hummingbirds feature removable lids for offering seed mixes in winter time. In-house window feeders will virtually bring birds right into your home!
Aside from just attracting birds, window bird feeders offer fabulous views of your feathered friends. A great educational item for children as well, once you start the birding hobby…it’s addictive! Entice wild birds to your yard with feeders, houses, and a fresh water source. Small birdbaths will do a phenomenal job at attracting more species of birds to your place too.
Going from a house with a nice yard to an apartment can be tough, you start missing the “green” and nature that’s always been taken for granted. But you can still enjoy feeding and watching feathered friends with a window bird feeder.
Using any seed mix, or even nectar to attract hummingbirds, close up viewing of wild birds is still possible with no backyard. The platform window feeder shown here is great for offering a variety of treats along with birdseed. Feed fruit, suet, peanuts or meal worms to attract even more species of birds. Hummingbird window feeders are available in basin and tube styles, while standard suet cages are also now available in window mount models. Keep suction cups and window clean for best feeder adhesion, and remember to keep a handy bird guide close by to identify new visitors.
Just because you don’t have the yard…you can still have your birds with a window bird feeder!
