Keep Bird Feeders Clean

Cleaning your feeders is very important especially with the House Finch eye disease that has been spreading. Some feeders are easier to clean than others. We've been replacing our more difficult feeders with the No-No Feeder. It's metal and very easy to clean. The water or snow goes right through it or drains out quickly so there is no spoiled seed. Get the ones that have an extended roof on them. It makes a difference on moisture getting in.

It's very versatile since it accommodates clinging and perching birds and holds a good amount of sunflower seeds. Black oil sunflower seeds attract the most variety of birds than any other single seed, so we like to have plenty on hand. Right now we've got 9 feeders out there with 2 more to add for the winter.
