There are a lot of different window bird feeders out there. So, if you made a decision to buy one of them, you first must decide what exactly you want from such a feeder. Usually, such feeders are made to feed the wild birds flying to your yard. They are installed on your window, so you can enjoy the view of the birds. However, there are some difficulties which can arise once you buy and install the window feeder outside your house.
Best window bird feeders are the smallest ones. Remember, that all the glass bird feeders are installed using suction cups. Suction cups can be very different, but they are often not sturdy enough to hold large objects. So once you hang your bird feeder, it might fall off when some birds sit on it. Their weight can be too much for some of the suction cups which have bad quality. Perhaps opting for more expensive feeders is a good idea to avoid cheap suction cups. Since the place where the suction cups are fastened to the window feeder might be unique, you won’t be able to purchase another suction cup to replace the bad quality one. So it makes sense to make sure the suction cups are durable enough.
Window bird feeders with suction cups are the most widely used bird feeders on the market. Since not all suction cups can hold heavy objects, the smaller and the lighter the bird feeder you buy, the more chances are that it will hold properly. The larger the suction cups the better they will do their job. So when you are choosing the window bird feeder, make sure the suction cups are as large as possible. In any case, heavy bird feeders should be avoided. Otherwise, bird feeders might not hold properly and fall down at the most unexpected moment.
