"The Buffet" - Deck Rail Bird Feeder
Note: most of these are sold locally and are picked up by appointment. However, we now can ship these to the lower 48 states!
We originally designed this because we wanted a large bird feeder that held a ton of seed.
So we built one that was 4' long and had glass windows on the front. We then wanted to make something more affordable so we ditched the windows and came to the design you see here. (We can build them with glass if you want for double the price).
These are shown mounted on our deck rail using about 4 screws (included). This brings the birds right to our window! Of course this can be put on a picnic table too.
The feeding trough is only on one side so we always see the birds feeding. The hinged roof stays in place while you're filling it.
The floor of the feeder is sloped so seed automatically fills the trough, and the seed gap is just big enough for small birds to get in there and clean it out if you choose to put your feeder away for the summer.
We can make these any length. In our catalog we offer a 1', 2' and 4' feeder.
The 4' feeder is unique and you'll see so many birds will feed from it at one time because they can spread out. Also this 4' feeder has such a large volume that you spend less time refilling. We find that a whole 20lb bag of feed fits in the 4' feeder.
