EcoTough Classic Bird Feeder

Two perches
Capacity: 3 qts
Dimensions: 9½” x 11¾” x 13¼”

Imagine a wood-free bird feeder that actually looks like wood! Our EcoTough® Classic won’t crack, fade or rot and has a lifetime guarantee. The Classic has curved ends so you can see birds feeding on both sides at the same time. Perch drains allow seed to drop out of the feeder for ground-feeding birds to eat, and angled perches let empty seed hulls be blown away by the wind. The removable screen bottom is treated with EcoClean® Antimicrobial Product Protection, providing 24/7 product protection.

The EcoTough Classic Feeder can be hung, but it does not come with the hanging wire to do so. We recommend that this feeder be pole mounted due to its weight (7 lbs unfilled) and size. If a tree were to hold this feeder, it would have to be a very sturdy tree.

EcoTough feeders and houses are environmentally friendly, high quality products that are made from recycled plastic milk jugs. These feeders and houses prevent used milk jugs from making their way into our landfills.

Eliminator Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

Capacity: 3½ qts

Protect your bird seed bounty from squirrels with our Eliminator™ bird feeder. When a squirrel touches the perch ring, its weight closes the seed ports, foiling its seed-stealing plot.

The Eliminator’s unique technology allows you to set the sensitivity level, so you can also exclude large birds such as pigeons or doves. It’s easy to hang, holds three and a half quarts of seed and is backed with a limited lifetime guarantee.

This feeder also features a special seed ventilation system that helps keep seed fresher and key parts are made from a special chew-proof material to help keep squirrels at bay. The Eliminator can be disassembled and assembled with no tools, and all of its parts are top shelf dishwasher safe.

EcoClean Dinner Bell Feeder

Capacity: 1 qt
Dimensions: 16″ x 12″ diameter

Our most versatile feeder is now available with antimicrobial product protection built into the tray. Though the tray now features a smoky look, the clear roof still allows birds to easily find food. The Dinner Bell™ tray prevents food from falling to the ground, and its dome raises and lowers, allowing you to feed smaller birds while deterring larger birds, such as starlings, grackles and doves. The dome also provides birds and food protection from the elements. Backed with a lifetime guarantee, the Dinner Bell is easy to fill and hang, and its tray is top rack, dishwasher safe.

Available exclusively at Wild Birds Unlimited, our EcoClean® feeders and accessories are the most advanced bird feeding products available on the market. EcoClean products feature a patented technology that inhibits the surface growth of damaging bacteria, mold and other microbes. This protection won’t wash or wear away, and it uses environmentally friendly technology.

Safflower Cylinder

Weight: 1.75 lbs
Dimensions: 7¾” x 4″; diameter

Our Safflower Seed Cylinder is a dining delight for a variety of birds. Made completely out of safflower seed, it attracts birds such as chickadees, titmice, cardinals, House Finches and more.

Tidy Cylinder Feeder

Dimensions: 15″ x 8″ diameter
Feeder height: 8¼”
Tube: 4½” diameter

Featuring a tray that reduces the amount of uneaten seed debris that falls to the ground, our Tidy Cylinder Feeder makes offering seed cylinders easy. Simply drop one of our exclusive seed cylinders (2 lbs.) or up to three Stackables® into the feeder, hang it, and watch your birds enjoy.

Our exclusively-formulated Seed Cylinders and Stackables keep birds at the feeders longer because they have to work to remove seeds. So instead of birds swooping in, grabbing a bite and taking off, Seed Cylinders give you a few extra moments of enjoyment.
