It’s quite normal to see several Blue tits or Finches on the Window feeder at the same time but recently Blue tits and Finches seem very happy sharing their meals together.

The Balcony Bird table

The Balcony Birdtable. A smaller birdtable to be hung on a wall in a smaller surrounding, like a balcony, court yard etc. The bidtable can also stand free on a ledge, or cill. Not entirely objective, but I do like Gerard’s latest creation; Ideal if you don’t have the space for a free standing bird table or if you just want to something attractive on your wall (it hangs with one screw on the wall).

Slate and Nature’s Window feeder

 


windowfeeder-vink-zijkantOur Window feeder, hand made from recycled British roofing slate, is one of Slate and Nature’s most popular products. Over the last few years, worldwide, over 3000 windows are transformed into a bird display. This specially designed feeder, is slowly conquering the world, from Tokyo Japan, Johannesburg Africa, Missouri USA, to Finland, Turkey etc. Nationally and internationally appreciated and enjoyed to watch and observe your feathered friends from close by. It has become a wonderful gift for your birds, your self, friends and family, no-matter what age, gender or who you are… everybody likes it.
