It's thought that birds hit windows because they try to fly through to the trees they see reflected on the glass surface but do not realize that a hard, transparent surface lies between them and that apparent perch. When a feeder is attached, it helps birds realize there is no fly through before it’s too late.
Window feeders are exciting because they bring the birds up close for study. Wild Birds Unlimited has a variety of Window Feeders that are ideal for offering seeds or seed blends. They are simple to attach to your window with suction cups, are easy to fill and clean, and are backed with a lifetime guarantee.
1. To enhance suction, a tiny dab of cooking oil may be rubbed on the rim of the cup.
2. To reduce mess, use Wild Birds Unlimited No-mess Blend. This is a blend that has all the shells removed and leaves no mess under the feeder.
