Custom Made for Woodpeckers

Made from recycled plastic milk jugs, the EcoTough Double Tail Prop Suet Feeder holds two suet cakes and is designed to allow woodpeckers to prop their stiff tail feathers against it for extra support. Even a pileated woodpecker's large body can fit on this feeder.

Watering Hole Combo

Give your birds a place to bathe and drink water with this plastic globe reservoir, which holds 3 quarts of water and releases it into four separate bird-sized pools on demand.

Seed Cottage Treat

This handmade decorated seed creation attracts a variety of birds and makes a colorful focal point in your yard. After the seeds are consumed, you can re-coat the wood base birdhouse with more seeds applied with peanut butter.

The seed-coated Wren Casita is a popular backyard attraction and, like most seed-covered bird cottages, the wooden structure makes an ideal nest and bird house.

A Smarter Way to Feed Birds

Constructed of metal and heavy ABS plastic for long-term usage, the Autofeeder is squirrel-proof and allows you to control how much seed you distribute to birds and when. This trains them to visit your feeder on a timed feeding schedule daily that you determine.

All Natural Bird Treats

Encourage the natural feeding behaviors of bluebirds and robins by offering them quality farm-raised mealworms.

Be a Mealworm Farmer

Giving your live mealworms a protein-rich diet that will result in healthier meals for your birds. Made from 100 percent, all-natural wheat middlings with no preservatives, Fluker's Mealworm Bedding should be placed in a shallow pan with live mealworms for easy feeding.

Bed and Breakfast for Birds

Hang this Bluebird B and B from a tree and you'll attract not just bluebirds, but chickadees, cardinals, finches, sparrows and many more. The seed coating is composed of millet, safflower and sunflower black oil; after it has been consumed, birds can nest in the wooden structure.
