Lovely Umbrella Bird Feeders

Lovely Umbrella Bird Feeders

We have a Dogwood tree that sits right off our back porch/deck that I had hung three bird feeders off of a few years ago.  They were crown shaped feeders with birds perched on them.  The birds loved them and so did the squirrels and chipmunks. After much use they became worn and eventually broke. I needed to replace them…I couldn’t keep the birds hanging on the trees looking for their beloved feeders.  I had to look for replacements.  The crowns were no longer available, so I searched for something else.  I wanted something different and decorative.

I found it!  Lovely umbrella bird feeders that had larger feeding trays then the crown shaped feeders.  I decided on buying two of them.

The umbrella shaped feeders looked perfect hanging on the tree.  The only thing was the birds had to acclimate to the size of the opening under the umbrella.  It’s a little tight, but they adjusted rather quickly and so did the squirrels.  I thought the size would be difficult for the squirrels to maneuver and would keep them out, but it wasn’t.  The squirrels are much to clever.

These feeders are great! The umbrella keeps the seeds dry during rain storms.  No more wet and soggy seeds or shells to clean out.  There are drain holes on the bottom of the trays just incase the seeds happen to get wet.

I love how pretty they look! I have a bird bath next to the feeders.  I like to give the birds a water source close to where I’m feeding them.  It’s important to supply fresh water for them especially during very hot days.

The birds love the new feeders.  I see these two birds everyday happily feeding on the delicious seed I provide them.  Well, I think it delicious…It’s a berry and nut blend I find at the grocery store that attracts a lot of different birds.

  1. Those are such pretty bird feeders. I would love to hang some in my citrus trees, but the pests are far to aggressive here in Santa Barbara. I will have to get some hummingbird feeders instead. Thanks for sharing.
    Best,

    • Hi Michelle! I do get a lot of squirrels and I’m always shooing them away, but it’s worth it to see the birds we get. Hummingbirds too, they sometimes go to the petunias I have hanging on the tree.
      Have a lovely Friday!

  3. I love the feeders, they are so fun! And, I’ve been meaning to tell you how much I love your header photos. Every time I stop by, my eyes love the look of all of those C’s hanging around your porch since both of my initials are C. Just sayin’!!! Blessings, Cindy

  4. I love the colour and decorative nature of the feeders, only ever seen plain styles or clear plastic ones. The suit the tree so well. I found you via The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party.
