A symbol of shelter and tranquility, gazebos offer space to rest and rejuvenate. Just like the real full-size version, this smaller representation in the form of a wild bird feeder acts in much the same way. This Perky-Pet® Gazebo Wild Bird Feeder attracts birds in search of seed, and it offers them a comfortable place to perch, relax, and feed. Even more, the bird feeder brings birds into your yard so you can enjoy gazing at them from your window or while relaxing on your back deck or patio. Enjoy the entertaining activity of everything from chickadees, cardinals, house finches, and Goldfinches to blue jays, starlings, warblers, and more.
Functional and Stylish
With its round, hexagon shape, this gazebo-style feeder provides an angled roof that helps create some shade and coverage from the rain. The wide, wrap-around seed tray at the base of this feeder offers plenty of space for several birds to comfortably perch and feed at a time. As seed is eaten, more seed from the reservoir naturally falls down into the tray for easy access. In addition to its bird-friendly design, this gazebo-style feeder also offers a stylish look with its symmetrically balanced lines and visually pleasing angles, which add a good dose of charm and beauty to any outdoor space.
Easy to Fill and Clean
Thoughtfully designed, this wild bird feeder comes equipped with a twist lock cap, to keep the lid securely closed and the seed fresh and dry. When it's time to fill, simply give the lid a turn to unlock and lift up for access to the reservoir. Holds up to 2.25 pounds of seed, and its transparent reservoir makes it easy to check seed levels at a glance. The bird feeder can be filled with a variety of seed types, including black oil sunflower seed, safflower seed, and mixed seed.
Be sure to keep this gazebo-style bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure happy, healthy birds and many return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking bird feeders once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it at least twice a week with a mild soap and water solution, more often in very warm climates or seasons.
After filling the feeder, use the included steel hanging cable (attached to the feeder for added strength) to hang it near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding area to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.

Wild birds are so common to us that we often glance at them without a second thought. When we really look at them, observe them and enjoy their special qualities, we can truly appreciate some of nature's amazing creatures.
Ideally a sheltered southeastern exposure location is best for hanging bird feeders since birds like to feed in the sun and out of the wind. Birds also prefer not to have any obstructions over their feeding area so they can see any predators. more»

The "Gazebo" - Absolutely the best feeder we've ever had - and a fantastic bargain for the price! We use the pole-mounting feature found underneath the feeder. It's positioned on an 8-foot metal conduit with a squirrel baffle below - about 2 feet from the feeder. Simply secure it with some outdoor silicon sealant. Totally fool-proof! We've named the feeder: "The Sky Bar," in tribute to a watering-hole located on the bridge at Puumala, Finland
Best feeder everFebruary 17, 2012
I've been using these feeders for 6 years. I've gone through maybe 6 - 8 in those years, because the squirrels eat from them too and they chew on the openings to make them bigger, and eventually the bottom falls off. I learned over the years not to fight the squirrels (I love the little guys anyway) and to put out more than one feeder, and everyone -- birds and squirrels -- share the feeders, often all at the same time. It makes for great wildlife watching to see everyone sharing, and a lot of fun to see some of the larger birds like jays, crows, and flickers try awkwardly to get their big bodies in the right position to grab a bite. These feeders are inexpensive enough that buying new ones every 18 months or so is not a problem, and they hold the right amount of seed for a day's feeding so that I don't usually have to worry about taking them down for the night to keep the raccoons from destroying them. The solid bottom perch is good for keeping seed and nuts in reach of everyone, and the strong wire hanger is indestructible. The feeders are easy to fill, no complicated open/close system, so that helps in winter and in the rain when I'm in a rush to get out of the weather. These feeders are also attractive and blend in well with the foliage.
