The Hurley-Byrd Stay Put Perch System and
Integral Rope Mount
A Blast From the Past - An HB 2009 Web Page
Niger seed and water don't mix and we doubt we have to tell you this.
All Hurley-Byrd Finch Feeder have a few innovations that help keep water out.
First and foremost, the hanging ropes are attached in what we call and Integral Rope Mounting System.
This means of attaching the rope positively keeps rain and melting snow from "following" the rope into the
seed compartment. Secondly, we've sized the seed slots as small as possible so your finches can still
access the seed minimize as much seed drop as possible but this too help keep water out of the feeder.
Another innovation of Hurley-Byrd is the Stay Put Perch System. Nothing is more frustrating than having
perches coming out of a feeder. We mount the perch in a small block of wood then mount the perch/block assembly inside the feeder. See the photos below, they are worth a 1000 words, and then some.
