The Top 5 Bird Seed Feeders for Small Birds

Peter McNish

Bird seed feeders are the ultimate garden accessory - not only do they keep your wild bird food in one nice neat place, but they also allow for optimum birdwatching too.

It’s important to know which bird seed feeder to use for which type of wild bird food, as the wrong feeder can get clogged and be difficult for birds to feed from.

We’ve taken a look at some of our best bird seed feeders and pulled together our top 5 favourites.


Droll Yankee Ring Pull Niger Feeder

The idea behind our Droll Yankee Pull Niger Feeder is that it is super easy to clean, helping to combat bacteria and stop the spreading of diseases amongst our wildlife.

The seed feeder does exactly what it says on the tin, it allows your wild birds to feed on delicious seeds and seed mixes straight from the feeder. Once all the feed is gone, simply use the ring pull to dismantle the feeder and give it a good clean before refilling.

Droll Yankee Nut Feeder

Our Droll Yankee Nut Feeder differs from our other small bird seed feeders, in that they have an open mesh outer cage that makes it easier for birds to get access to the nuts inside.

Mealworm Feeder

For those looking to attract small wild birds that are partial to invertebrates like mealworms, we have our popular mealworm feeder.

Mealworms are an excellent source of protein for our wild birds, which makes them excellent bird food, especially in the colder months. It can be hard for birds to find great sources of fat and protein during the winter, so providing them in your garden can be a huge help.

Robin Feeder

With winter fast approaching, we are sure to see some of Britain’s best loved bird, the robin. Our robin feeder can be filled with any of our mealworm products or robin mix bird food.

Just because the name suggests it has been carefully designed for robins, doesn’t mean that you won’t also attract other small birds to the robin feeder. Different tits and finches may also drop by for a bite to eat.
