Hurley Byrd's "Big Honkin" Bird Feeders
Installations and Erecting: A Quick Understanding
Mounts (poles not included) 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 your birds to consume dropped feed which saves YOU
lots of "seed money" ultimately paying for itself and the feeder too.
The most desired installation for these feeders is atop a 4x4 post since they cannot be hung
due to their weight. But they can be used as patio table, deck, ground or stump feeders.
When mounting a pole with a complete feeding station having a Seed Catcher Tray,
the seed tray has a perfectly sized center hole that slips over and down the pole prior to
mounting the feeder. Once the feeder and its mount are tightly affixed, the tray can then be
pressed tight against the underside of the feeder's mount or secured anywhere along
the pole's exposed length. All hardware required is provided.
(Quick Note - We do not provide 4x4 posts.
Visit any lumber store and they will assist.)
Materials and Craftsmanship:
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 seed retention rails hold up to years of birding activity.
Ceramic Coated Screws - Used Throughout. No inferior staples, nails or brads found anywhere.
a.) Screws are the ultimate fastener for their holding capabilities.
b.) Ceramic Coatings do not corrode like nails, staples, or inferior screws.
c.) Screws allow disassembly for cleaning, refinishing or repair.
Hopper End Seed Ports
We call this our 360 Degree Feeding Platform.
(The seed hopper is set in the middle of the baseplate and supplies seed in all directions,
hence 360 degrees. What this offers is a tremendous gain in bird viewing real estate. AND, we
have found over the years, the birds LOVE visiting our feeders from the ends and
plucking seeds directly from the hopper's seed port.)
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.
For a Limited Time - 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.
