Dome Bird Feeders
Dome feeders have a feeding station covered by a dome (usually plastic). The dome prevents snow and rain from falling on the feeding station. The dome may also make smaller birds feel more protected.
This dome feeder is manufactured by Droll Yankees. The dome can be moved up and down. When the dome is placed closer to the feeder larger species such as grackles will be excluded from the feeder.
This dome feeder is ideal for feeding fruit or mealworms, as these Eastern Bluebirds will attest.
- Dome feeders are usually hung, not pole mounted.
- Small dome feeders can be popular with bluebirds if the right food choices are provided, such as pitted or dried cherries.
- Dome feeders provide some protection from squirrels.
