Eco Tail Prop Feeders: The EcoTough® Single Tail Prop Suet Feeder lets birds eat in a natural way. The paddle simulates a tree trunk and offers birds a place to prop their tail while they feed. The Single Tail Prop holds one suet cake, is easy to fill and hangs anywhere. This gift keeps on giving all year round too! Woodpeckers are here year round - enjoy them during the winter when this high energy food is needed to keep warm. In the Spring enjoy seeing the young arrive with their Dads to learn all about the reliable food you have to offer! Choose from a single tail prop or a Pileated Tail Prop big enough to accommodate the largest of our woodpeckers (the Pileated) and two suet cakes!
EcoTough feeders and houses are environmentally friendly, high quality products that are made from recycled plastic milk jugs. EcoTough® feeder material won’t rot, crack, fade or warp like wood can. They also come with limited lifetime guarantees.
WBU Eliminator: 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. The special perch ring allows birds such as cardinals or grosbeaks to eat from a more comfortable position. It is easy to hang and has a large seed capacity. Foil the squirrels, feed the birds! What a great gift for the backyard bird feeder.
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. It also comes with a limited lifetime guarantee!
Combo Idea: Add an Eliminator Weather Guard to help protect seed from the elements. Use a Pole Adaptor to mount the Eliminator to the top of our Advanced Pole System (APS) instead of hanging from a hook. (Both sold separately).
Modern Rustic style Feeders: This new line of recycled material feeders have been designed with a natural wood print. The style comes in a hopper feeder, tray feeder for the APS pole system & tail prop feeder for woodpeckers to enjoy one of our great line of high-energy suet blocks.
