Cardinal Classic Feeder will turn your window into a private
viewing station. Place the lightweight plastic feeder can on
any clean window using the three included suction cups and
watch the show begin. Birds eat undisturbed as you study
them from indoors.
This feeder is especially great for families with
children, elderly residents, and even indoor cats that need
a little extra entertainment. The seed tray is large enough
to hold a cardinal and other small songbirds. The roof and
small perch make it difficult, if not impossible, for a
large bird or squirrel to use. Fill it with sunflowers and
safflowers to attract more cardinals and fewer finches.
Construction and Durability:
The one-piece molded plastic construction is convenient
and makes for a durable set up. The only added parts are the
suction cups, which are also plastic. The problem with
one-piece construction is that the entire feeder needs to be
taken down for a refill if you don’t have a small seed
Temperate weather is ideal for this feeder; I had
problems during a very cold winter with the suction cups
losing their grip on the window. When the suction cups froze
and the feeder dropped, it hit the cement of the patio and
cracked along the roof line.
Cleaning:Since the Cardinal Classic Feeder comes in
one piece, all of it has to be washed at once. The corners
of the bottom tray require a brush to reach into the
crevices for a thorough clean. The plastic is safe for
soaking in a bleach and water solution.
The one-piece design requires no set-up – just hang it on a
window and you’re in business. To hang it, find a window
where the feeder will make the most impact, like the kitchen
or family room, and make sure the glass is clean on the
outside. Position suction cups and make sure that they are
sticking securely to the window before hanging the feeder.
Hand rubbing the suction cup face a dozen or so times to add
human oils to the cups surface will help with proper long
