This attractive bird feeder provides a fascinating feature for young and old alike. The food is held temptingly in place by a metal spike and the birds must perch and peck to get their share. So, if you've got the grand kids staying, rather than get them to throw their (many!) leftovers out on the lawn, you can put the wasted food on this special feeder. It's neat and tidy and ideal for small to medium birds. We like to think it makes up for all those times a big gull or magpie has stolen the food from under the beaks of a smaller bird.
