Why Choose a Window Bird Feeder
Window bird feeders are perfect for anyone who’s looking to get up close and personal with the birds. Always have your feeders in full view to see who’s stopping by for a quick meal. Even when the weather is less than ideal, you will never miss a chance to enjoy the sights and sounds of the songbirds in your yard.
Suction cups attach these bird feeders securely to any window you choose. This is a great way to teach kids about birds and bird feeding since they can see first-hand all the wonderful details of the birds.
Most window bird feeders hold many types of seed including black oil sunflower, safflower, and mixed seed. Experiment with different seed options and see which bird types prefer which seeds! Window bird feeders typically have a smaller seed capacity making them lightweight and convenient for hanging. Most are made of sturdy plastic to ensure many days of bird enjoyment!
Lessen the Chance of Window Strikes with a Window Bird Feeder
Did you know that having a window bird feeder can actually lessen the chances of a bird striking the window? Well, they do! That’s because birds are usually slowing down for a landing as they approach the feeder. Because they’re going slower, they can see the window before they come in contact with it, and avoid it. Then, when they go to take off from the feeder, they will simply fly in the opposite direction from the window. Bird fatalities by window strikes are often the highest when a bird is going at top speed. So, having a bird feeder directly mounted to the window will help make sure they are not going top speed if they do happen to contact the glass.
