We’re all familiar with the festive song, “the Twelve Days of Christmas” – you probably grew up singing it every year around this time. Best of all, the classic song’s 12 days of gift giving features plenty of birds! This year, we thought we’d change it up a little with our own version – 12 Days of Bird Feeders! In honor of this holiday classic, we are highlighting 12 of our top festive feeders and we can’t wait to celebrate.
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Why not start the 12 Days of Bird Feeders with a festive red feeder that also keeps out squirrels! The Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Country Bird Feeder is weight-activated so that the ports close off under the weight of heavy squirrels, but stay in place for all of your favorite songbirds such as cardinals, finches, and grosbeaks.
In addition to the large seed capacity and squirrel-resistant features, this feeder also boasts a charming design that will enhance any outdoor space. Your birds will enjoy eating from this miniature barn-style feeder as much as you’ll enjoy watching them.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
If a barn-style feeder isn’t your taste, how about a rustic metal feeder? Like the Country Style Bird Feeder, this feeder uses anti-squirrel technology to close off ports under the heavy weight of squirrels when they try to access the seed. Meanwhile, your birds will be able to feast to their hearts’ content while resting on bird-preferred U-shaped perches without setting off the weight activation.
Additionally, this feeder contains three separate seed compartments so you can serve a variety of offerings and attract many different species of birds! Multiple birds can feed at the same time with the nine individual perches and ports. You’ll get to watch plenty of bird-feeding action and – thanks to the attractive design – your yard will look great too!
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
If a large-capacity feeder is what you need, then wait until you check out what the third day of bird feeders has in store! K-Feeders are a time-honored tradition in bird feeding for one primary reason – they last! Made of durable materials, this feeder was truly built to last a lifetime. Plus, it’s able to hold an impressive 8 lb of seed so your hungry birds will always be in good supply and you won’t have to constantly refill.
You’ll be amazed at the number and variety of birds that show up to this feeder. And since there are eight convenient ports, they won’t have to fight for feeding time! Feeding the birds should be a joy – with the K-Feeders Super Carousel Feeder, it really is.
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
For the fourth day of bird feeders, we’re switching it up with a classic hummingbird feeder! The Perky-Pet® Glass Hummingbird Feeder continues to be one of our most popular models. Rest assured – the hummers love it almost as much as Perky-Pet® fans do! Built-in bee guards and an ant moat help to keep out insects so that only birds can access the nectar.
Plus, you’ll love the wide mouth bottle. This feature makes the feeder incredibly easy to clean and fill. You can even pull the base apart completely for a thorough cleaning – hummingbirds prefer a fresh, clean feeding station! And if that doesn’t draw them in from afar, the bright red cap and base with yellow accents surely will.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
The fifth day of bird feeders deserves something truly unique – that’s why we chose the Perky-Pet® Hummerbar®! Do you have a friend whose yard is teeming with hummingbirds all summer long? This feeder is the answer. The horizontal, 22-port design allows you to accommodate multitudes of hummingbirds at once. It’s great for discouraging territorial behavior.
The classic red, flower-shaped ports will draw hummingbirds in, and the nectar capacity will encourage them to keep coming back for more. It’s the ultimate hummingbird feeder. After you try it, everyone you know will want one!
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Every hummingbird-lover could use another hummingbird feeder, and the Perky-Pet® Pinch-Waist Glass Hummingbird Feeder is the perfect choice. The bold red and yellow accents on this feeder will catch the attention of passing hummers and attract the iridescent beauties to your yard.
The built-in ant guard and bee guards provide a line of defense against unwanted insects. Plus, it can be completely disassembled to allow for easy and thorough cleaning so you can spend less time cleaning and more time watching the birds!
On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Outsmart the sneaky squirrels in your yard with a Perky-Pet® The Preserve™ Feeder! This cage-style feeder features a metal barrier that prevents squirrels from getting into the seed and pilfering it. But don’t worry, your small songbird friends will have no trouble getting through and having a feast!
Despite the barrier, you’ll still be able to easily monitor seed levels, so your birds never run out of food. In addition to being functional, this feeder will also add some style to your yard thanks to the rustic finish. Your friends will love receiving this charming feeder as a gift – and don’t forget to grab one for yourself!
On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Light up your landscape with a little help from the Perky-Pet® Solar Lighthouse Feeder! Not only does this feeder have a charming lighthouse silhouette, but it functions like one as well! The top of the feeder features a solar-powered LED light that acts as a glowing beacon in the dark. Birds will be able to spot it day or night, and you’ll be able to enjoy the bird feeding action long into the evening!
This feeder is perfect for thistle-loving birds like finches, and the mesh design ensures there are plenty of spots to cling to when the birds come flocking.
On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Nothing complements a snowy landscape quite like a polar bear! That’s why this season calls for a polar bear-shaped feeder to match. This adorable feeder will look great alongside your other winter décor and the birds will love it too! The all-metal mesh construction provides plenty of space for multiple birds to cling to while they dine.
Plus, it features a powder-coated finish to prevent rust, so your polar bear will remain snowy white for many years to come! People and songbirds alike will be dropping by your yard to get a closer look at this whimsical feeder.
On the tenth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Mason jars have been the rage for several years – why shouldn’t the birds have them too! This vintage-style feeder looks like the classic canning jars you love, while offering a great new use. The large capacity and flower-shaped ports will keep the hummingbirds coming back for more.
You’ll love the way this looks in your backyard, but we know avid bird feeders will appreciate how easy it is to fill and clean because of the wide mouth opening. The stylish birder in your life is sure to love unwrapping this feeder for the holidays!
On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Bring a little extra color to your yard this season with a Perky-Pet® Amethyst Starburst Vintage Bird Feeder. It’s perfect for people who love a bit of vintage flair, featuring vibrant colored glass and embellished accents. It will be a standout piece in any yard.
The birds will love the wraparound perch and open seed tray, which provides plenty of room for songbirds to feed. Plus, drain holes in the tray will ensure that seed stays fresh and dry even when inclement weather strikes. This holiday, give a gift that’s both beautiful and functional!
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
To round off your holiday shopping, check out the Perky-Pet® Red Sparkle Panorama Feeder! It’s the perfect gift for a friend. Not only does this unique feeder provide a delicious meal for all of the hungry birds, but it also adds a bright spot of holiday color to outdoor winter décor. When snow hits the ground, your birds will be able to spot and visit this feeder for a holiday treat!
Thanks to the powder-coated red sparkle finish, this feeder will last through many winters of bird feeding. The Sure-Lock™ cap system will keep the squirrels out and make providing a continuous supply of fresh food for the birds, a simple task.
