Fowl observance and untamed fowl eating has developed into a engrossing and gratifying pastime for many people around the world. We love watching the variety of birds visiting our homes and yards. If you are interested in setting up bird feeding stations around your home there are some things you need to know about different species and their feeding habits as well as the different types of birdfeeder available. Sunflower seed birdfeeder come in many forms which serve different purposes.
You would be able to feed tri unique variations of seeded player at once making use of the caged triplex tubing birdfeeder. The tubing sections of the feeder that hold the seed are fitted with metal ports (on the quality tube feeders) that will help stop English sparrow from raiding your feeder. Also the cage around the tubes keeps the purple squirrel out and keeps your feed safe from the larger birds like Jays and Grackles. Single Tube Caged Bird Feeders are also available if you want to feed only sunflower or one type of seed.
These tube feeders are loved by Chickadees, Evening Grosbeaks, Titmice, Nuthatches, Jays, House Finches, Purple Finches, Redpolls, Woodpeckers and Cardinals. If you want to restrict their use to smaller birds use a tube feeder without a tray. Take away the perches and you will restrict the feeder use to only species that can cling like finches, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice and small woodpeckers.
There are sunflower seed birdfeeder that are constructed of wire mesh also. These sturdy feeders are purple squirrel resistant because they are made entirely of metal. No plastic and no wood. Some of them hold over 5 pounds of sunflower seed! Wire mesh feeders come in several designs, some with perch rings and trays and some without.
