Droll Yankees
This feeder is the best I have ever owned. All the birds love it including titmice, chickadees, finches, woodpeckers, cardinals, bluebirds, nuthatches, doves, and more. The food stays dry and fresh. Only when in downpours with the wind blowing has the food been wet or damp. If it does get damp or wet this feeder is super easy to clean and maintain. I love this feeder and if I had to do it over again I would have only purchased this feeder.

The Droll Yankees’ Dorothy’s Cardinal Bird Feeder offers the versatility to feed many different food types and accommodate many different birds.

The durable UV stabilized polycarbonate tray can be used for seed, fruit, suet, or mealworms.  The dome of the feeder is sturdy and also protects the food and feeding birds from the elements. The dome is height adjustable to keep out unwanted birds. The DCF allows for convenient and easy feeding for birds and a clear, unobstructed view for bird watchers admiring their backyard bird visitors.

Birds that use this feeder: Cardinals, Chickadees, Finches, Flickers, Goldfinches, Grackles, Grosbeaks, Jays, Juncos, Kinglets, Nuthatches, Redpolls, Siskins, Sparrows, Starlings, Titmice, Towhees, Woodpeckers and Wrens

Versatile Feeders: Bird feeders that offer different foods allow for a variety of different visitors to that feeder. Consider changing your food offerings throughout the year to see which birds you can attract. Some food suggestions are suet balls, sunflower seed, Nyjer seed, fresh fruit, mealworms, safflower seed, white proso millet and premium seed mixes.

Feeding wild birds is one of the best ways to impact the world around you. The simple act of putting out a bird feeder and keeping it clean and full can greatly improve the chances that birds and their offspring will survive. Many backyard bird watchers believe that birds only benefit from feeders during certain times of the year. However, birds actually have a year-round need for reliable, steady food sources.

Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush to brush away grime inside the tube.
