Suet feeders are great for providing birds with the food and nutrients that they need for survival throughout the year. In addition to being a great source of food for the birds, suet feeders are easy to maintain and insert a suet cake. The suet cake neatly contains all of the essential nutrients birds need to thrive and is not as messy as regular bird seed. Even though the suet cake will last a long time in your suet feeder, always remember to replace it when it becomes old in order to keep the birds healthy and interested in your feeder.
Suet feeders are available in a variety of styles, but most suet feeders have the same basic square shape and consist of a metal cage that holds the suet cake. The metal cage is a standard size and will typically hold any type of suet cake. One of my favorite basic suet feeders is the Hanging Suet Basket with Copper Roof. This simple, yet stylish suet feeder, has a small copper roof that provides the suet cake with protection from the elements. It is a great value and looks great hanging in a tree or on a post. You may want to place a few suet feeders around your yards once you start having birds snacking on one.
If you like the idea of a suet feeder, but would also like to feed the birds seed, too, then a suet and seed combo feeder is perfect for you. My favorite combination feeder is the Deluxe Cedar Chalet Feeder w/suet. This charming and practical feeder can hold two suet cakes and 5.25 pounds of bird seed. With a feeder like this one, you can attract a variety of multiple birds at one time. It has clear panels on either side to make viewing the bird seed easy and is mostly constructed of cedar wood for durability.
If you are an environmentally conscious bird lover, than you may want to use a suet feeder made from recycled materials. The Going Green Recycled Plastic Suet Bird Feeder has a roof made from recycled plastic and steel cage that is strong and durable. The recycled plastic roof won’t absorb water and become moldy. This suet feeder is great for helping the environment and for feeding the birds.
Adding a suet cake to your bird feeder collection is ideal for any busy bird lover. Suet feeder are easy to fill and maintain. Suet cakes don’t create a big mess and are a great source of nutrients for birds.
