The Songbird Lantern has long been one of our best selling bird feeders. Made especially for Nyjer Seed (thistle), preferred by Goldfinches, Redpoles, and Pine Siskins. Lid and bowl are designed from hand-turned, recycled redwood by our craftsmen in Oregon. The top loading hopper protects the seed from the elements and glass panes reveal how much seed is available. A pinecone is added to make each lantern a dual-purpose seed & suet feeder. This feeder holds about 2.5 cups.
