Hopper feeders or house style feeders are the traditional looking feeders that resemble houses. They are called hopper feeders because it holds lots of seeds and dispenses it to the birds, just like the agricultural hopper which is a storage container used to dispense granular materials. The birds also hop on and hop off of them while enjoying the seeds. Any of our WBU Seed Blends can be placed in a hopper feeder as well as sunflower and safflower seeds. Many birds enjoy using hopper feeders including: chickadees, finches, siskins, nuthatches, sparrows, grosbeaks and blue jays. Doves and cardinals particularly enjoy hopper feeders as they like to have both feed on something solid while feeding.
