The Garden Sip & Seed Bird Feeder doubles your chances of attracting birds to your backyard thanks to its dual feeders. Two hard plastic tubes are connected by a decorative metal scroll hanger in a copper finish. Each tube features matching end caps which interchange to act as seed or water trays. Copper finished finials decorate the ends of both bronze-finished plastic caps. When assembling the feeders, always make sure the tube is open end down, and always use the finials to keep the end caps securely attached. You can use one tube for water, and one for seed, or use both for water or both for seed. Placing seed out will draw songbirds like nuthatches, chickadees, wrens, blue jays and cardinals. All birds need water so you never know what might be drawn to your backyard.
It is recommended that you clean this feeder twice a week. If extra cleaning is required, a solution of vinegar and water should be used. Do not use extremely hot water or place the feeder in your dishwasher.
The use of saccharin or other artificial sweeteners is not recommended with this feeder, as these have no nutritional value for the birds. Do not use honey or other related products as these can be harmful to hummingbirds.
