Suet Feeders are designed to offer suet and no-melt suet dough to the birds that enjoy this high-energy food. Suet Feeders come in a wide variety of shapes and styles so accommodate a variety of birds including: woodpeckers, chickadees and nuthatches. Offering suet at a backyard feeding station is one way to attract a greater diversity of insect-eating birds. Birds that eat suet will still find natural food sources, such as insects, insect eggs and larvae for a well-rounded diet. 

Our most popular Suet Feeders are those with tail props. A tail prop is a paddle like extension at the bottom of the feeder which allows woodpecker to brace themselves against the feeder using their stiff tail feathers. This provides woodpeckers with more leverage and peck at the food with more force and more comfortably. 

Imagine a wood-free bird feeder that actually looks like wood! Our EcoTough® feeders won't crack, fade or rot and has a lifetime guarantee.   EcoTough® feeders and houses are environmentally friendly, high quality products that are made from recycled plastic. These feeders and houses prevent used plastic from making their way into our landfills. 

WBU EcoTough® Suet Feeders offer these features:

  • Easy to clean and fill
  • A durable tail prop
  • A roof to protect the  food from weather
  • Durable caging that keeps squirrels away from the food
  • Hanging cable
