Woodlink Platform Feeder

The most non-selective feeders are the tray, platform or house feedersbecause they allow easy access by all birds. Platform feeders are simple trays that have solid bottoms and sides for holding seed on the platform and providing a perch for the birds. Some have mesh sides designed to reduce use by crows and squirrels. Seed is often tossed off the platform by birds, providing a second feeding area for your birds.

The WoodLink 3-in-1 Platform Feeder (Hang, Pole Mount, or Ground) is one of the most popular platforms around. This versatile platform style feeder attracts the widest variety and the greatest number of birds. The green powder-coated screen is easily removable for cleaning, and allows for proper drainage of your birdseed, and the ability to offer any type of birdseed or fruit. This platform feeder is made of durable, kiln dried inland natural cedar and comes with hanging cable and foldable legs. Perfect for feeding bluebirds, cardinals, chickadees, doves, finches, flickers, goldfinches, grackles, grosbeaks, jays, juncos, mockingbirds, nuthatches, orioles, redpolls, robins, siskins, woodpeckers, and wrens.Handcrafted in the USA.

A few years back I had an interesting discussion with a Western Scrub-Jay. We talked about how smart and intelligent the corvid family was. Well, the jay did mostly. I just listened. The corvid family, which includes jays, both Scrub and Stellerís, crows, ravens and magpies, are known for their smarts.
