DIY Large Hopper Feeder by Prime Retreat


Undertake a quaint and rustic project in your bird garden while offering a substantial feeding station to your backyard birds with this amazing DIY Large Hopper Feeder by Prime Retreat. This significant feeder accommodates a generous amount of nutritional seed to feed an array of feathered friends, and its large platform allows several to feast at once. Precut pine and plexiglass panels help you easily construct a staunch and robust frame, with the pair of clear panels in the middle of the unit creating the item's feeding reservoir. The hopper can hold a plentiful 9.5 quarts of mixed seed, cracked corn, or peanut chunks, allowing you to sustain a bevy of hungry birds while cutting down on the frequency of refills. Feed levels are simple to monitor via the clear plexiglass panels, and the wood surrounding the item's base sets up an ample, convenient feasting platform. Metal screening on the feeder's base ensures adequate drainage to prevent a spoiled treat, while the pitched roof overhangs all sides of this expansive feeder to protect seed and feathered friends from rain. A hinge on the roof's top lets you lift one side easily upward to perform refills and regular cleanings, while a wooden seed diverter in the center of the reservoir angles slightly downward on both sides to helpfully distribute the feed to either side, eliminating unwanted accumulation. For a lofty, striking showcase in the bird garden, attach a mounting bracket (not included) to the base of this hardy unit. This simple project provides relaxing enjoyment in your outdoor space, and repeated exposure to outdoor elements over time will weather the feeder to a lovely and charming gray tone, offering dynamic allure in your bird sanctuary. Complete a fun and relaxing project and add a beautiful accessory to your bird haven with this sizable and magnificent DIY Large Hopper Feeder. Assembly required. Made in the USA.
