No-Wobble Tray Feeder
Creatures great and small will enjoy dining at this sturdy, portable feeder.
If you enjoy seeing a variety of animals feeding in your backyard, this easy-to-build triangular feeder is all you'll need to attract a crowd.
Cardinals and other "tray feeders" will love it...and the low platform will attract birds that feed close to the ground like dark-eyed juncos and mourning doves.
You'll also see plenty of squirrels and chipmunks, so keep the tray well stocked with cracked corn. (If these furry critters can count on a reliable food supply here, they'll be less likely to disturb other feeders set up only for birds.)
One of our Birds & Blooms editors came up with the idea for this unique triangular feeder. The three legs prevent wobbling no matter where you put it in your yard. Plus, it's lightweight enough to move with ease.
