Lititz, PA (January 2008) - It’s a question as old as bird watching itself, “How do I attract new and different birds to my yard?” Birders have tried different style feeders, different seed types, rearranging the layout of their yard. But the answer may be just as simple as…. “Water.”
It has been often times proved that a water source in your backyard is a simple and effective way of drawing in birds. Birds need water for not only drinking, but also for cleaning their feathers so they can fly properly. By providing a fresh source of water, you can attract many species of birds that may otherwise fly on by.
To help birding enthusiasts make it easier to offer birds both seed and water in their yard, Woodstream is introducing two Sip & Seed™ seed and water feeders. These very unique feeders are constructed of opposing silos that hang from a decorative scroll hook. Each silo is equipped to serve either seed or water. Two Sip & Seed™ products- the Copper and the Garden offer innovative function as well as decorative designs that will compliment any backyard.
The Copper Sip & Seed™ is made of glass and antiqued copper. Both of the silos on the Copper Sip & Seed™ feature a patent-pending collar that twists to feature a seed opening or a water opening. This innovation allows the consumer to serve seed and water, or when winter approaches and water will freeze, to fill both silos with seed.
The Garden Sip & Seed™ is a lower price point version, constructed of durable plastic. It features silos that have interchangeable bases, to serve either seed and/or water. So like the Copper model, the Garden Sip & Seed™ can be set up to serve seed and water, two silos of seed, or two silos of water.
Both Sip & Seed™ feeders were launched at the 2008 Bird Watch America show and will be available in retail outlets beginning in June 2008.
Woodstream Corporation is the wild bird feeder category leader that offers the broadest and deepest set of quality products in the industry at competitive prices.
