First, let's delve into a little history lesson...

The drawing to the left illustrates the first bird feeder to earn a United States patent: 1,592,493.  The description of the invention by Lewis P. Kelly of Peoria, IL may be a fascinating read for history buffs.  Thanks to Google Patents those of us with internet connections can do a bit of research and read the actual patent application: https://www.google.com/patents/US1592493

Kelly's abstract says in part that his invention provides: "a form of feeder consisting of two sections of wire screen...adapted to clamp between them the feeding material" which Kelly describes as "fat or suet".

"An advantage of this form of feeder is that it may be fed from at either side thus giving double feeding capacity and accommodation for a number of birds at the same time."

J.J. Cardinal's offers a host of variations of Mr. Lewis' suet feeder...see our "suet page" >

bluebird at High Pointe

Not all birds eat shelled seeds.
To attract those that eat fruit and insects (bluebirds, mockingbirds, robins, and even warblers and thrushes) try mealworms, berries or other fruit, seeds without shells (hulled sunflower), and suet. Many seed eating birds like woodpeckers and chickadees also enjoy fruit and bugs, too.

mealworm larvae & darkling beetleWhat is a "mealworm" (you ask)?
Mealworms are insects, not really worms. What appears to be a worm is the larval form of the darkling beetle. They make excellent feeders for small mammals, reptiles, and birds. Eager to learn more? Check this site sponsored by Wikipedia, or try searching Google.   We do not have "live" meal worms in-stock at this time.

Suction Cup Mounting Tip:
to ensure your suctions cups stay put, replace them every 6 to 12 months. Soak new cups in hot water 5-minutes and dry, clean surface where suction cup will be placed. Rub the dish of the cup with your thumb for 10 to 20 seconds (to apply a thin coat of natural oil from skin on the suction cup). Press cup firmly to flat surface (mirror, windows, etc.) and carefully hang item.

Mesh Screen Feeders & Socks

niger seeds - when viewed close-up - resemble miniture cucumbersNote: Niger seed ("Guizotia abyssinica"), also called thistle seed, appeals to the colorful songbirds who flock to it as if it were a magnet. It is a tiny oil-rich seed of a thistle-like plant, imported from Africa or India. Niger is not a crop that is grown domestically (US) in significant quantify - though many agri-businesses are testing and studying the potential for a domestic crop someday.

so who is this guy, J.J. Cardinal? click here to find out...J.J.'s Seed Feeder Selection Tips
The type of feeder you select will determine the species and variety of birds you'll attract to your backyard habitat. Birds the size of a blue jay or larger have difficulty dining from perches found on most tube style feeders; so if you desire only small songbirds consider one of the many tube style feeders. Interested in attracting the entire spectrum? Adding a seed tray to the bottom of a tube feeder helps manage debris and provide perching surface for larger birds, who also enjoy hopper and platform style feeders. Still stumped? Our library is filled with great resources, or one of my articles on feeder placement.
