I purchased a Nature’s Hangout Window Bird Feeder to try to capture photos of birds close-up, but so far, I haven’t had any luck with it. I’m sure it probably takes some time for the birds to learn where it’s located, what’s in it, and everything else involved. If you have other bird feeders around your yard, or the area in general, it’ll probably work a lot quicker for you. If you’re looking for ideas on gifts for nature lovers or just bird lovers, then this would make a great gift!
The bird feeder is small, very light, and completely see-through, except for the pirch, itself, which is plastic. The one I received came with a total of 6 suction cups, to be able to place it on windows. Three of them attach directly to the window, and three more to be able to hang the feeder, from the window. It’s pretty much your preference on the way it hangs from the window.
The bird feeder measures at 5x4x12, made of acrylic and weighs about 0.35 pounds. It can hold up to 2 cups of bird seed. The tray is removable and easy to clean. There are holes at the bottom of the tray, to allow any water to pass through the seed, in case if rain gets in. It has an overhead design, where rain shouldn’t get into it too easily, either. The tray has a divider in the middle, where it allows you to use 2 different types of bird seed, if you choose to. Since the feeder hangs from a window, it’ll keep squirrels out, but that might not stop flying squirrels from making their way into it, though.
Even though it may not seem like it, but it actually holds up really well. It can hold up to pressure, so most birds shouldn’t have a problem standing on it. Since it has an overhead section, it’s mostly designed for smaller birds, such as finches. We get a lot of blue jays around here, but lately, I haven’t seen any. It should be ok for their size, and lower, of birds.
If you’re looking for a gift this year, then this might be something simple and affordable. The box it came in had a really nice design, and attracts the eye. I ordered the Nature’s Hangout Window Bird Feeder from Amazon, along with some bird seed, and both came packaged really well.
Once the birds start coming around, I’ll probably enjoy it a lot more, and add more thoughts about it, as time goes on.
