What else would be featured for a giveaway during National Bird Feeding Month than a bird feeder? And because it’s so cold in many places, this month’s prize is perfect for window feeding to get an up close view of birds from the cozy comfort of indoors.
National Bird Feeding Month
February is National Bird Feeding Month, a time to highlight when winter natural food supplies may be running a bit low and wild birds can benefit from seed, suet, peanuts, and other foods offered in safe, easily accessible feeders. While birds don’t get as much food from feeders as we may believe, it is true that in late winter a lot of our feathered friends will visit feeders more frequently for a fast, convenient meal.
The Prize to Win
For this month’s giveaway, one winner will be randomly selected to win the perfect feeder for winter feeding – the Wild Birds of Joy small window bird feeder. This compact design (measuring roughly 6 inches high, 6 inches wide, and 2.5 inches deep) features not only a feeding tray (complete with four small drainage holes), but an overhanging roof to shield seed from rain, snow, and ice. Two large suction cups on the feeder’s back are designed to hold it firmly on a window, and the clear acrylic construction gives birders inside that window a beautiful view of any diners.
The feeder’s box comes with tips for proper and effective installation, as well as guidelines for how to attract birds to the feeder and how to keep it clean and safe for birds. The tips even include ideas for how to keep squirrels from raiding the feeder, and what to do if birds are initially hesitant to visit.
Most backyard birds would likely be eager to use this feeder, though its small size might make it less popular with larger species or birds that feed in groups. Smaller birds such as finches, chickadees, titmice, juncos, nuthatches, or wrens, however, will feel right at home and won’t hesitate to grab a snack once they feel comfortable with the feeder’s placement. The wide front opening will easily accommodate all visitors, and makes refilling easy and convenient.
Enter the Giveaway
To be entered to win this window bird feeder, just answer this question in the comments below:
Where would you place this feeder?
For me, it would definitely be on my office window, as I spend far too much time in my office every day. A close second would be on our patio door, where visiting birds would more than entertain our pets (though admittedly, that might get to be a bit too noisy!).
The giveaway is only open to participants in the United States, and all entries must include a valid email address in the comment form to be contacted if you win. The feeder will ship directly from Be Your Own Birder (addresses are not shared, sold, or traded) via USPS with tracking information. By entering, all participants agree to the Giveaway Guidelines. Entries will close on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, when the winner will be randomly selected. Time to feed the birds!
