Types of Decorative Bird Feeders
Hopper – If you’re looking for easy-to-use and larger capacity feeder then look no further than a hopper-style feeder. Decorative hopper feeders come in classic silhouettes such as lantern and chalet styles. The word hopper means a container that holds bulk material and that’s exactly what you’ll get from a hopper bird feeder. Because of their shape, they typically hold 2 lb of bird seed or more.
Tube – When most people think of a bird feeder, they think of a tube feeder – but these feeders can also be decorative. With added elements such as brushed copper or pops of bright color, decorative tube feeders take traditional tube feeders up a notch. Tube feeders usually feature 4 or more ports so many birds can dine at once.
Mesh – Decorative mesh bird feeders come in fun shapes and add character to your décor. Because the whole feeder is mesh, many birds can dine at the same time! Birds simply cling anywhere on the mesh surface and pull out the seeds they prefer.
Hummingbird – Colors abound when choosing a decorative hummingbird feeder! Hummingbirds are attracted to bright colors that resemble the vibrant flowers they find in nature. Antique bottle feeders combine a vintage look with the durability of a glass feeder. Mason jar styles have a large capacity and give your yard a touch of rustic charm. There’s no end to the decorative options.
