*Less-Than-Perfect* Cedar Hanging Bluebird Feeder8515LTP
- 1-1/2" entry hole for Eastern Bluebirds
- Solid Cedar and Stainless Steel Screw Construction - No weak staples or brads
- Stainless Steel Hanging Cable
- Hinged Roof for Easy Filling
- Plexiglass viewing windows with entry holes (replacement viewing windows without entry holes are also available)
- Made in the USA
How it works: The feeder has entry holes on both ends (as well as in each plexiglass window) that allow the bluebirds to feed inside. The entry holes prevent larger more aggressive birds, like starlings & jays, from feeding. Directions are included on how to use this feeder. Chickadees, nuthatches, and wrens will also be able to feed here. The Hanging Bluebird Feeder can also be bottom mounted on a pole (sold separately).
It can take a little time for your bluebirds to understand how to enter this feeder. When first introducing it, we recommend removing one of the plexiglass windows and placing a few live mealworms in a small dish inside. Once the birds understand there is (the most delicious) food inside, they should be willing to try the entry holes and you can put the window back after a few days.
Overall dimensions: 11” wide x 7” deep x 8” tall.

This photo of our Hanging Bluebird Feeder was taken by Angela in New Jersey. She rotated one side of the plexiglass so the hole is on the lower half. She believes that is how the first bluebirds figured out how to get in. Looks like they are lined up to feed. Thanks for the great picture and tip. #bluebird #bluebirds #kettlemoraine #birdfeeders #wildbirds #birding #birds #birdsofinstagram #birds_nature
