Best Large Capacity Bird Feeder

I’m looking for a house type feeder that holds a large amount of seed. My old neighbor built us a wood box type feeder that lasted for years but it definitely needs to be replaced. Any suggestions? It needs to be mounted on a 4” x 4”. ~ Battle Creek, Michigan

You can choose from a wide selection of feeders at our stores. One of the most popular at the Wild Birds Unlimited - East Lansing, MI store is our huge recycled plastic hopper feeder.

The EcoTough® Ranchette Retreat bird feeder is a fully functioning bird buffet that holds two gallons of seed and two suet cakes. The variety of food offered in one place attracts many different bird species such as cardinals, finches, jays, chickadees, woodpeckers and more.

To protect the seed, the Ranchette Retreat has an extra large green roof that overhangs the extra large tray area. This will accommodate large and small birds comfortably. It also has a mesh screen bottom with a built in seed diverter to keep seed moving through the feeder smoothly and to prevent moldy seed. It mounts to a 4” x 4” easily or on our Advanced Pole System (APS).

This is one of the easiest feeders to clean. The recycled plastic doesn’t fade, crack, or split. The plexi-glass front and screen bottom are removed easily. Its dimensions are: 11" x 16¼" x 17¼".

EcoTough® feeders are environmentally friendly, high quality products that are made from recycled plastic milk jugs. They are more expensive than the cedar hoppers but they are hand crafted in Chilton, Wisconsin and come with lifetime guarantee.
