Create the best bird feeding pole system

The basic starter setup
Most people begin bird watching with a general seed feeder  hanging from a tree or a simple plant crook to attract songbirds like cardinals, jays, sparrows and more. Then it can get a little more complicated when you want to introduce a finch feeder to attract the bright yellow goldfinches or a suet feeder to attract all the interesting bug eating birds like the chickadees, wrens, nuthatches, titmice and woodpeckers.

The Basic APS Boxed Setup is an excellent way to get your bird feeding hobby organized. It’s easy to construct and maintain. Just twist the augered pole into the ground, and then snap on the extension pole, arms, and chickadee finial.

You can stop there or continue to create and customize your bird feeding station. The Basic APS Boxed Setup is an introductory pole system that allows you to add on pieces to build up the system as your interests in the hobby grows. 

The ultimate bird buffet
Want to add another feeder; there are single or double arms that you can attach easily to the setup. Or decorate the pole with a perching branch so the birds can line up to eat. There are also suet feeder attachments that will allow you to hook you suet feeder right to the pole.

A variety of food types equals a variety of birds coming to eat in your yard. Our APS Squirrel Baffle or Raccoon baffles will keep the critters off and birds’ tummies full.

You can continue to add to your system until you have The Ultimate APS Setup. Come into the Wild Birds Unlimited East Lansing, Michigan store today to design your grand buffet for the birds and then sit back and watch the entertainment.
