Best Window Bird Feeders
We have searched around to find the best window bird feeders and one of the best
is this clear Window Bird Feeder from Perky Pet. It's inexpensive at less than
$10, but not "cheap" and will last. In fact one customer said it lasted through
the 80 mph winds of Hurricane Sandy! It is easy to fill and clean, has two suction cups to
adhere to window and has a clear roof to keep out the rain and snow. I have seen
other window feeders priced as high as $80!? Just get this low-priced one and

"This is one great little bird feeder for the money. I bought 2. Have had
one before and it lasted five years. The price is right and the birds love it.
Cardinals, finches and tufted titmice are a few of the birds that have visited
the feeder." -Mary
Tip for keeping suctions cups to hold: You must first soak the suction cups in warm water for a few minutes. Then dry them completely. Then rub your nose
(or oily T-zone spot) and lightly rub a bit of that oil into the cup, and *then*
firmly stick the suction cup to your window. After doing this, customers say
they never have problems with the window feeder suctions cups coming loose.
A lot of people enjoy the in-house window bird feeders where it is mounted within a window frame and the feeder itself in inside the house. They obviously will cost a little more than the traditional outdoor window mounted feeders.
Some things to look for include: Will it fit my window type and size? How weatherproof is it - will rain leak into the house? Below are a few popular ones that were well reviewed at Amazon.
And for those looking for either more economical choices or in house window feeders, here are some basic in-window feeders without all the frills, like
this Perky Pet, but still will attract birds that you can enjoy watching at your window.

Here's a nifty window decal that shows transparent to our eyes, but solid to birds to prevent birds from crashing into your windows:
Below in the video is a similar style window bird feeder with visits from a
tufted titmouse and black-capped chickadee on a snowy, winter day. I like the
other style mentioned at the top of this page a little better because of the
closed design, the birds don't kick out as much seed and therefore is less
waste. Also, the seed stays drier because it is more protected from the dome
shape of the roof and protection on the sides.
We hope you find the perfect feeder and start enjoying backyard bird watching, but now with a much closer look. ;-) A window bird feeder is one of the best bird feeders to have because it lets you enjoy bird
watching up close from the comfort of your own home, no binoculars needed!
