Reviews of the Best Lantern Bird feeders

What type of bird seed feeder you put into your garden is often more of a choice made through a consideration of the aesthetics than it is of the practicalities. If you like the look of the standard tube feeders then that is fine, but there are so many feeders out there that have great visual appeal. Sure, some of them are more expensive, but they are surely worth the extra outlay. You must decide for yourself.

This is a nicely designed lantern bird feeder made of strong durable plastic. It has an all-round perch for easy feeding and a sloping roof which helps to keep the bird seed dry.

Most purchasers agree that its design keeps the food dry in the hopper, if not in the tray which can sometimes clog up when the rain is strong. Not squirrel-proof but then few feeders are!
