Top 10 Wood Bird Feeders
for October 2023

MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

Wooden bird feeders add a natural touch to backyards, or can be the perfect accent to a deck or patio. Their simple, minimal design blends well with almost any exterior, and their minimalist look makes them easy to clean and store. Plus, they're usually made from either pine or cedar, both of which last for years.

Wood bird feeders come in a variety of styles, including hanging feeders that come equipped with a hanging chain, tube feeders that hang from a branch, or tabletop feeders that sit on a table or bench. Some feeders have built-in perches, which are perfect for birds that like to perch.

In the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab, we evaluate wood bird feeders for performance, including ease of use, durability, and craftsmanship. We test each feeder's material, including wood, metal, and plastic, as well as bird feeder's durability. We also evaluate each feeder's craftsmanship, including how easy the feeder is to assemble and how sturdy the feeder is.

Our top pick is the Lifetime 16" Wood Feeder with Perch. This feeder is easy to assemble, has a sturdy design, and comes with a built-in perch.

kathson Wooden Bird Feeder Nest House Hanging Outside Hummingbird Grass Hut Garden Decoration Yard Natural Grass Finch Housenest for Blue Birds Chickadee Wren 2PCS

by kathson

GRASS BIRD HUTThe bird shelter is hand-woven from 100% natural dried hibiscus grass fiber.Biodegradable, environmentally friendly, durable, breathable, perfect for nesting birds and safe for your pet.Bird hut provides a safe hideaway for birds who are escaping predators.During cold nights finches, chickadees, tits or sparrows will roost inside this bird hut to stay warm.

The Kathson hanging bird feeder is a beautiful, well-made product with a classic design. It's sturdy, too, and won't fall apart after a few months. It's made from natural wood, so the wood has a naturally pleasant fragrance that will attract many kinds of birds. The feeder itself is fairly small, so fill it with a little less than a pound of seed, and don't worry about filling it to the top. The feeder's door is big enough that birds can fit their bills through, but it's small enough that birds can't fit their bills through if the door is open. The roof is removable, too, so you can clean it if there's any bird poop on it. The feeder also comes with a grass birdhouse, and while this isn't as visually appealing as the feeder, it's more useful. The birdhouse is big enough for birds to live in, but smaller birds can't fit their bills into it, so the feeder provides a nice home for the smaller birds. The hole is small enough that the birds can't fit their bills through, but larger birds can fit their bills through it. The Kathson hanging bird feeder costs more than some cheaper alternatives, but it's well-made, attractive, and will attract many kinds of birds.

C&S CS770 Feeder Melt Suet Plugs for Wild Birds, 20 Ounces, Wood Grain

C&S CS770 Feeder Melt Plugs Suet for Wild Birds

by Central Garden & Pet

Easy fill design

The C&S CS770 bird feeder is arguably the best-value bird feeder we considered. It's reasonably priced, and it's built to last. It's made of solid, durable wood, and has a sturdy metal frame. The hooks that hold the suet plugs are made of metal, too. The suet plugs are larger than some other models we considered, which gives them a better chance of keeping birds interested. The suet plugs also vary in size, so you can expect to attract a wider variety of birds. The suet plugs don't stick up as high as some models we considered, so you can easily put a few plugs close together, creating a feeding area with a variety of sizes. The suet plugs pop out of the slots easily, and the slots are large enough that they won't jam. The C&S CS770 comes with four suet plugs, but you can use as many or as few as you like. The suet plugs are simple to clean. The feeder comes with a metal suet scoop, which is helpful for cleaning the suet feeder. We also like the fact that C&S makes replacement parts available, should you need one.

generic Hanging Bird Feeder Acrylic Parrot Feeder Box Cage Feeder with Perch Wood Stand for Cockatiel Conure Budgies Parakeet Parrot Small Animal

by generic

With the suction cup and premium acrylic material made, your bird feeder is not easy to fall off and damage.

The acrylic feeder is reasonably sturdy, and the birds seem to enjoy it. The feeder has a wood perch, which our birds like, and the metal hanger is sturdy enough to hang it anywhere, even from a window ledge. The included tray is removable, so you can clean it easily. The feeder is fairly small, so it's going to hold less food than our previous pick (but it's still plenty for our birds). Our birds also like to perch outside the feeder, so you'll likely get a lot of traffic coming through it. The included perch is big enough for most birds, but smaller birds may prefer to perch on the metal hanger instead. The feeder is transparent, so it's fun to watch the birds eat. The birds don't seem to mind the acrylic, but they do seem to prefer a wooden perch. The feeder is inexpensive, so it's a good option for casual birdwatchers.

WildBird Care Hanging Platform Bird Feeder Cedar Tray Feeders Outdoor BCF3A

WildBird Care Hanging Platform Bird Cedar Feeder Tray Feeders Outdoor BCF3A

by WildBird Care LLC

Removable Tray for Easy Cleaning. No Assembly Necessary

The WildBird Care hanging feeder delivers an attractive, low-profile bird feeder that's simple to fill, clean, and maintain. The feeder's tray is made from metal, not plastic, so it's more durable and resists rust. The feeder's cover is removable, so you can easily access the seed reservoir. The feeder's cable is long enough to reach the very highest branches. However, it's not as versatile as other hanging feeders, as it only supports sunflower seeds and peanuts. If you want versatility, check out our pick. But if you're only looking for an easy-to-fill feeder, the WildBird Care hanging feeder is a good option.

Attracts all seed-eating songbirds including chickadees, titmice, cardinals, nuthatches, grosbeaks, Pyrrhuloxia, finches, jays, juncos, robins, red polls and of course - woodpeckers!

If you're looking for something to fill your backyard birdfeeder, then check out this Cole's Special Feeder birdseed. It's one of the cheapest options we found, and it's one of the best-performing. This blend has a high percentage of sunflower seed, which is a favorite for many backyard birds, including cardinals, jays, and woodpeckers. It also has a high fat content, which some birds, such as finches, like to munch on. It also has a high percentage niger and millet, which add color and texture to the mix. Unlike other birdseeds, this one contains no added chemical preservatives, artificial flavors, or chemicals, which some birds don't like. We also like the fact that Cole's makes these mixes themselves, so there is no chance they're being sourced from overseas, and the packaging is clearly labeled with everything you need to know.
