I go through bird feeders pretty quick, very few are made to be durable and last very long. A neighbor suggested I start using more mesh bird feeders, so I began looking around for some that fit in with my garden decor.
I came across the Farm Home Collection website in a catalog and noticed the brightly painted mesh globe feeders, which are different than any other feeders I have had or seen. A set of three mini globes come in red, yellow and blue and hang from a colored chain.
The feeders are really easy to hang and fill, you simply lift the lid of the globe. I liked that the mesh is a little smaller weave than other mesh feeders so I can put finer feed in it for finches without it all falling out.
The first day I hung my globes they were visited by several birds and overall the bird population seems to enjoy them. I like them because they add color to the trees now that they are bare in the winter and come spring and fall they will give the garden a festive look. The only thing I wish was different was that the feeders would be a little larger. I find I am filling them more often than I did with my old feeder.
Still, I like the way they look in my garden and the birds seem to enjoy them, plus they are a little harder for the squirells to get to than other feeders I have. Definitely going to order a couple more sets of globes to add to the garden.
