Designed to function like a grain silo, this modern bird feeder is easy to fill with sunflower seeds or peanuts by lifting the top cone and filling from the bottom up. Designed by Helsinki-based designers, Mika and Julie Tolvanen, these bird enthusiasts studied the eating habits of birds for years by feeding them from prototypes at their dining room window. Bird Silo is made from 100% post-consumer waste.
Note: it is recommended to fill Bird Silo with peanuts or sunflower seeds (with the shell still on). Millet and other grains are not recommended for Bird Silo because the clinging birds that visit this type of feeder do not eat millet (which will remain in the feeder, collect moisture and spoil).
Bird Silo is flat packed and easy to assemble/disassemble. Clean with environmentally-friendly soap and warm water when necessary.
