Wakefield premium bird feeders are hand-crafted in the USA and made from cedar. Cedar is an ideal material for birdhouses because it is weather resistant and durable, allowing it to be hung up outside all year long. Keeping birdseed and food dry is very important for bird health. That's why The Wakefield Cottage House Bird Feeder features a protective sloped roof that prevents direct wet weather from seeping into the food supply. For further protection, its proliferated metal floor drains any water that tries to pool inside. This cottage bird feeder is open on all sides for easy access for refilling and cleaning. Not only does this design allow birds to fly in from any direction, but it also allows birdwatchers to easily spot fledglings, passerines, warblers, and other various birds visiting their new food source. Regular cleaning is recommended for your birdfeeder to keep your yard birds happy and healthy. The metal hook on the top of this feeder allows for easy hanging on any branch, pole, or post.
