Wood Bird Feeders
If you are
looking for a bird feeder that will complement your back yard or
patio then look for a wood bird feeder. This type of design will
provide an enjoyable experience watching birds and also will make a
great gift for the holiday season.
Many different types of companies manufacture wood bird feeders
and bird houses, but try to find one that is environmentally safe
and suitable for a variety of different birds. One company in
particular like Schrodt Design, Inc, provides safe wood bird
feeders and use mill trim ends and pack them with recycled
materials. Gary Schrodt, the owner of the company is known for
creating a Teahouse Bird Feeder that is constructed from wood trim
and hand-etched glass. They are truly remarkable and one of the
most creative and artistic wood bird feeders available on the
Countryside Culture is another company that sells bird feeders
designed to look like barns, cabins and country cottages. They are
typically made out of redwood and cedar, with the roof made out of
copper. They are great for attracting birds of all types and hold a
considerable amount of bird seed.
Before deciding on what type of bird feeder style is right for
you then first consider how the feeder will fit in with your
environment. If you have a problem with squirrels you may need a
squirrel proof bird feeder and have to sacrifice a more artistic
design. Basically, a wood style bird feeder whether plain or bright
colored will fit in with most exterior designs.
