Birds feel comfortable with a tray

Tray feeders attract a wide variety of birds including ground feeding birds like cardinals. Birds feel comfortable with the large flat open area of a tray. And this makes it easier for us to view the birds.
Tray feeders can hold a variety of food. You can throw whole peanuts for the Blue Jays, mealworms for the Bluebirds or toss in a seed cake or loose seed for all the birds to enjoy.
I like the tray feeders that have good drainage in the bottom. This makes the feeder easier to clean and keeps the seed fresh longer. 
You can also add a weather guard to keep the snow and rain off and protect the birds.
