Image for Oak Hills Bird Feeder - Attractive but Small

I really love the way this little feeder looks, but it’s pretty small if you have a lot of birds around.

This was an inexpensive feeder, but it’s very pretty and has held up fairly well. The body of the feeder is wood, the side panels are a textured translucent plexiglass. I really like the roof. It is made of a lightweight metal with a raised oak leaf and acorn design. It looked more coppery when it was new, but is darker now. I could touch it up if I really wanted to.

Though small, the feeder is well designed, with a ventilation panel in the floor of the feeder so that the seed won’t sit in a puddle of water if rain blows in. It says it holds two pounds of food.

There is a cable that runs the vertical length of the feeder. This is for hanging, and it goes through a hole in the roof. To fill the feeder you slide the roof up the cable and pour the food in. So the roof can’t blow off. The cable has a permanent loop at the top.

I’ve had this a number of years, and have only had to replace one of the bottom rails where the birds need to sit. Wooden feeders do tend to fall apart over time. It’s too bad because I like them best.

Made by the Hayes Company of Wichita, Kansas. They make a large number of decorative garden products.
