Feeders: When you send a feeder you send two gifts: the feeder itself, and the moment it arrives. There's the knock at the door or the package on the porch. And the next thing that happens is your special someone's heart races with delight as they open a gift they will remember for years to come.

Feeder Delivery: At Hurley-Byrd, we do things differently and oversee every part of the process: from the buying of raw materials, to handcrafting the feeder, to the day your purchase arrives at the front door. We send freshly crafted feeders direct and bypass all the middlemen, which means better feeders and a better value. (Don't just take our word for it. Thousands of customers rate Hurley-Byrd "best value.") We believe in complete satisfaction and lasting value, too, which is why we guarantee a perfect feeder for you or your recipient , and also that your feeders will oulast all others available and will be enjoyed from the moment they arrive and for years to come. It's all part of how Hurley-Byrd is changing how America feeds their wildlife.

Hurley-Byrd does it differently: We handcraft each and every feeder we sell. Beginning with our own designs, buying the finest western red cedar and crafting your feeders to near perfection with a beautiful penetrating oil finish so they last for years. We take pride in every step of our service, too--from the moment you first interact with us, whether on our website or on the phone, to the delivery of your feeders and gifts and everything in between. We want to make owning and gift giving easy for you. So whether it's a simple thank you gift, a unique deer feeder or a whole feeding station for yourself, choose Hurley-Byrd and see what a difference our feeders really make.

The Original Mourning Dove



















The One Which Started the Whole Series.
From a request of a Texas birder years ago (who's still a customer), the Original Mourning Dove is
a favorite for many of our customers. It's length to height to width ratios just screams Bird Feeder.
In our opinion, this is the perfect bird feeder for nearly any yard. With its 3 gallon capacity, ample 360
degree landing/feeding platform, you will receive countless hours of enjoyment from this feeder.
Feeder Dimensions less mount: 27" in length, 16" in width, 10" in height. Mount adds 6" in height.
Light Assembly Required - Attach Roof, 4 screws. Attach mount, 8 screws. Very Easy!
























The Ultra Mourning Dove
Shown with Optional Feeder End Suet Cages - Custom Order. Please call or write
.




















The First "Take-off" from the Original Mourning Dove - UPWARD in Capacity.
Upon introducing the Original Mourning Dove, our customers requested "more capacity."
Our response was the Ultra Mourning Dove (UMD) with 50% larger hopper meeting their needs.
The new 2009 Ultra Mourning Dove is our 5th generation of redesign and is gorgeous. With a much prettier
"bird feeder" look and 4 1/2 gallon (18 lbs) capacity, it sets off any feeding station and the birds feed all day.
Feeder Dimensions less mount: 29" in length, 16" in width, 11" in height. Mount adds 6" in height.
Light Assembly Required - Attach Roof, 4 screws. Attach mount, 8 screws. Very Easy!



























The Extra Long Mourning Dove



















The First of the New 2009 Introductions - It's a STRETCHED Mourning Dove.
The Original Mourning Dove is a great feeder but awesome was the goal. By taking the
Mourning Dove's near perfect configuration and s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g its length, the new Extra Long Mourning Dove takes first prize with its gorgeous appearance and 3.8 gallon (15 lbs) capacity. This is an extremely serious feeder and with its ample (and long) feed platform, you'll have the happiest birds in town.
Feeder Dimensions less mount: 32" in length, 16" in width, 10" in height. Mount adds 6" in height.
Light Assembly Required - Attach Roof, 4 screws. Attach mount, 8 screws. Very Easy!
Optional Matching Seed Catcher Tray  -  32" in length x 24" width

























The Extra Long Ultra Mourning Dove or as we call it, the ELUMD



















Our BIGGEST feeder goes HUGE!!!!   -  Topped only by our custom built Million Bird Byrd Feeders.
If you have been seeking a LARGE (make that HUGE) capacity bird feeder, look no further.
The Extra Long Ultra Mourning Dove's design is all about beauty with quantity.
Holding 6.2 gallons (25 lbs) of seed, this feeder will make for happy birds and you won't fill as often.
This is the perfect bird feeder for those on a busy schedule or having very large populations of birds.
Feeder Dimensions less mount: 36" in length, 18" in width, 11" in height. Mount adds 6" in height.
Light Assembly Required - Attach Roof, 4 screws. Attach mount, 8 screws. Very Easy!
Optional Matching Seed Catcher Tray  -  36" in length x 24" width.
























The Mini Mourning Dove


















One of Our Most Exciting 2009 Introductions - A Small-Pole-Mounted Large Feeder. A Hurley-Byrd First.
The Original Mourning Dove has been resized to a 2 1/2 gallon (10 lbs) feeder so it can be mounted
on our new Heavy Duty Small Pole Mount. We can now provide a large sized
feeder, pole mount and high quality cedar pole in one package.
Plus, while designing the Mini Mourning Dove, we also designed the new Extra Large Blue
Jay Fly-through as an exact match. These two feeders compliment one another
perfectly and will make a beautifully diverse feeding station.
Mini Mourning Dimensions: 24" in length, 16" in width, 10" in height. Mount adds 6" in height.
Extra Large Blue Jay Dimensions: 24" in length, 16" in width, 10" in height. Mount adds 6" in height.
Light Assembly Required - Attach the mount using 4 supplied screws. Very Easy!







































The Hurley-Byrd Mourning Dove Series
  Big, Beautiful and Beautiful! 
The Hurley-Byrd Mourning Dove series bird feeders are in a class all their own.
Our years of birding and woodworking expertise produce the finest large bird feeder available.
Through a process of continued enhancement, the Mourning Dove's functionality and beauty have reached a level unequalled in the bird feeding world. It is pure Form over Function - The BWM of bird feeders.
The Mourning Dove series is our top selling big bird feeder and for good reason. Big, bold and
tremendously beautiful, these feeders attract a lot of birds and tell the whole neighborhood
"You're a Serious Birder." If you seek the highest quality pinnacle feeder for your
feeding station or a gift that will never be forgotten, look no further.

The 2009 New Introductions:
In years past we crafted the original Mourning Dove with its 2 1/2 gallon (10 lbs)
capacity and its big brother, the Ultra Mourning Dove having a 4 gallon (16 lbs) hopper.
For 2009 the whole line is redesigned to step it up (and down) to suit any bird feeding need you
may have. We now offer three brand new feeders and introduce the newly redesigned Mourning Dove and
Ultra Mourning Dove. Starting with the Mini Mourning Dove having a small 2 gallon (8 lbs) hopper through
our largest production feeder ever, the Extra Long Ultra Mourning Dove with its huge 6 1/2 gallon
capacity of 26 pounds. Whatever your needs in the large feeder arena, we have you covered.
Each are extremely well crafted and protected with our penetrating oil finish.
















Installations and Erecting:
Mourning Doves are normally erected using our Large 4x4 Pole Mounts (poles not included – The
Mini Mourning Dove is the exception. See below or click here) and are usually coupled to a matching Seed Catcher Tray. Seed Catcher Trays introduce a second level of bird watching pleasure by providing a large, open and unobstructed landing area to accommodate the bulkier/clumsier birds such as Blue Jays,
Cardinals and Mourning Doves. Most importantly though, seed catcher trays provide a
second opportunity for the birds to consume dropped feed which
saves YOU lots of "seed money" ultimately paying for itself and the feeder too.

We recommend mounting these feeders on 4x4 posts (3 1/2" x 3 1/2") using our mounts since they
cannot be hung due to their weight. But they can be used as patio table, deck, ground or stump feeders.
The seed trays have a perfectly sized center hole that slips over and down the pole prior to mounting the feeder. The tray can then be pressed tight against the feeder's mount or slid further down the pole
and secured at any location along the poles length using the supplied brass screws.

Each Mourning Dove is Crafted with the Finest Materials and Craftsmanship:
Western Red Cedar - The finest cedar in the world. See our Word About Wood page (a must read).
1.) Super thick base plates and vertical roof supports for years of durability.
2.) 3/4" Matched lumber roof halves of superior beauty.
3.) 1/2" thick railings to hold up to years of birding activity.
Solid Brass Screws - Used Throughout. No inferior staples, nails or brads found anywhere.
1.) Screws are the ultimate fastener for their holding capabilities.
2.) Brass will not corrode like nails, staples, or inferior screws.
3.) Screws allow disassembly for cleaning, refinishing or repair.
Hopper End Seed Ports - Supplies seed to feeder's ends producing a 360 degree feeding environment.
Full Length Brass Plated Roof Hinges - Keeps rain and melting snow from entering the hopper.
Heavy Duty 1/4" Acrylic Sheeting - Double thick sheeting retains it shape and is strong!
Positive Water Drain Holes - Placed at each corner for fast drainage of rain and melting snow.

Free Standard Accessories - Preinstalled:
Hopper Base Seed Splitter - Directs ALL the seed to the feeding platform.
Solid Brass Hook and Eye Latch - Positively keeps the roof closed, even in high winds.
See the left and right side bars for additional feeder information.
What's makes the Original Mourning Dove different from
the rest of the
Mourning Doves?
The Mourning Dove shown to the right is the forth largest feeder with a seed capacity of 3 gallons (12 pounds) and is also the forth shortest of the series. Make no mistake, this IS NOT a small feeder.
Like the Mini Mourning Dove and Extra Long Mourning Dove, it has a different hopper shape compared to the Ultra Mourning Doves. Its hopper's vertical sides are not as wide or as tall and the tapered cut
from top to bottom
is more pronounced producing a strong "V" shape. With the hopper's prominent taper coupled to its shorter height, width and length, this obviously reduces the feeder's overall seed holding capacity. But because of these factors, we have achieved a more ample
feeding platform
for your birds.

The Original Mourning Dove is perfect for those looking to set up their first feeding station or anyone needing a high capacity filler feeder and wants the quintessential looking large bird feeder.
This is a superb choice.
What's makes the Ultra Mourning Dove different from
the rest of the
Mourning Doves?
The Ultra Mourning
Dove shown to the right
is our second largest
capacity feeder holding
4.6 gallons (18.5
pounds) yet is our third shortest feeder. The Ultra Mourning Dove's
hopper is shaped differently than the regular Mourning Doves.
The hopper's vertical sides are taller, wider
and the tapered cut
from top to bottom is less
pronounced, having
more of "U" shape.
Due to the hopper's
less prominent taper,
extra width and height,
the feeding platform's
"feeding area" is somewhat reduced. But
doing so has allowed us
to craft a feeder with a
very substantial seed holding capacity for the convenience of less filling and assures there is ample feed for your birds at all times.

If you seek a large capacity feeder and live in an area having heavy snowfalls or receive abnormal amounts of high winds, this is the feeder you need. It's roof holds less snow and due to its more centralized center of gravity, will be less prone to weigh and wind damage.

Pole Mount Page.

Quick Overview
Each Hurley-Byrd 4x4 pole mount is an extremely strong mount. You will not find a stronger and more beautiful mount on the market anywhere. Each mount is crafted of the finest lumbers suiting the feeder's weight requirements.

Our Large Pole Mount has been designed
and is crafted for use
under feeders with a maximum of 40 pounds
of load. See the statistics
below. We recommend
this mount whenever
a seed catcher tray is
used under the feeder
since it offers the
least obstructed
view of the tray.

Heavy Duty
Pole Mounts
are serious mounts
with a holding capacity
of 60 pounds.
This 60 pound figure is
an extremely conservative one and
our tests have shown
this mount will withstand
heavy wet snow loads
exceeding 80 pounds in
high wind conditions for
long periods of time.
This mount also has a
certain ornamental
quality with its tapered
supports. If you live in
an area of heavy
snows, high winds or
have issues with
mammals climbing all
over your feeders,
we highly recommend
this mount.

Statistics:

Not seed capacities.
MD: 12 Pounds +-
UMD 14 pounds+-
ELMD: 15 pounds +-
ELUMD: 18 pounds +-

Heavy Wet Snow will
weigh as much as 20.5
pounds per cubic foot.
An Extra Long Ultra
Mourning Dove has
the capability of holding
4 cubic feet of snow
on its roof.
As an extreme example of the ELUMD:
Snow Load: 82 pounds.
Feeder Load: 18 pounds
Seed Load: 25 pounds.
Grand Total:
125 pounds.
This feeder MUST use
the Heavy Duty Mount.

Your conditions will dictate which pole
mount you need.
If you have any doubts,
purchase the heavier of the two mounts.

What's makes the Extra Long Mourning Dove different from
the rest of the
Mourning Doves?
The Extra Long Mourning Dove shown
to the right is our third
largest in the series with a 3.8 gallon (15.4 pound) capacity, yet it's our second longest feeder offering more room (in a linear fashion) for the birds to feed.
Compared to each of
the Ultras, it has a
different hopper shape.
The hopper's vertical sides are not as wide
nor as tall and the
tapered cut from
top to bottom
has a more pronounced
"V" shape. This has allowed us to achieve
a more ample feeding platform for the birds but reduces the feeder's seed holding capability.
Due to its extra length
when compared to the Original Mourning Dove,
it has 28% more capacity
but still falls short of both Ultra Mourning Doves.

If you have a lot of bird
activity including larger birds like Mourning Doves, Blue Jays and
Cardinals plus are seeking the "perfect
looking" bird feeder, here it is. With its roomy feed platform and strongly "V" shaped hopper, this feeder's versatility and beauty are second to none.

What's makes the Extra Long Ultra Mourning Dove different from
the rest of the
Mourning Doves?
The Extra Long Ultra
Mourning Dove shown
to the right is an
extremely impressive
feeder that shows the
world you're a serious
birder. Its huge capacity
of 6.2 gallons (25
pounds) is unrivalled
anywhere and we've
gained its great capacity
through the use of a
very long, wide and tall
hopper. Actually, it's
long, tall and wide in
every aspect!

If you feed a lot of
birds,are away from
home for extended
periods of time or seek
a true pinnacle feeder,
this feeding station will
suit you perfectly.

Due to its long length and potentially heavy snow and wind loads, this feeder requires our Heavy Duty Large
Pole Mount.
Add the massive 6 square foot seed tray and it makes a major statement in any yard.
We recommend you bury a pressure treated 4x4 post in the ground
18" to 24". In loose
soils, cementing it in place may be a
very good idea.
What's makes the
Mini Mourning Dove different from
the rest of the
Mourning Doves?
The Mini Mourning Dove shown to the right is a scaled down version of the Original Mourning Dove. Do not be mistaken, this is not a small feeder by any means, it's just small in comparison to its
bigger siblings.
The Mini holds 2 1/2 gallons or 10 pounds of seed and since its weight is centered over the mount, a small pole mount and 1 1/2" square pole can be used for erecting this feeder.

In all other aspects, it's a Mourning Dove. The base, vertical sides and roof are all crafted from the same weight and grade of lumber. It has
a seed splitter, solid
brass hook and eye
roof latch and
double thick Plexiglas.

Add the Extra Large Blue Jay fly-through and you have a beautifully matched set of feeders that will cater to a wide variety of birds.
