Bird Feeder Types: Tube Bird Feeders

Tube bird feeders

Tube bird feeders are very popular amongst backyard bird watchers. With a tube feeder you’re able to attract small birds such as sparrows, grosbeaks, chickadees, titmice and finches while excluding larger species such as blue jays. Tube bird feeders keep bird seed fairly clean and dry and offer different feeding port options. If the bird feeder has metal feeding ports it will be fairly resistant to squirrel chewing. If the feeding ports are located under the perches you will attract only birds able to eat while upside down such as goldfinches and chickadees. The type of bird seed you offer is dependent upon the size of the feeding port. You can select feeding ports with tiny holes for Nyjer seeds or larger for black oil sunflower seeds.

One precautionary note regarding tube feeders is to always empty old seed out before refilling the tube bird feeder. The seed-containing tube on most tube feeders extends an inch or more below the bottom of the lowest feeding port. Seed collecting here can be an area for mold and bacteria growth making it dangerous for birds. Birdfeeders Etc. offers a variety of tube feeders including options such as the Quick Clean Spruce Green Tube Feeder which has a push-button bottom making it incredibly easy to empty.
