I’m a big fan of the Droll Yankees bird feeders.

These thoughtfully engineered bird feeder designs are made in the USA of quality, durable materials that withstand the harshest weather.

All Birdfeeders are Not Created Equal

I stumbled upon this brand a few years ago, and I loved everything about these feeders. And now, all the feeders intoBirds uses are Droll Yankees feeders.

So when I recently saw on Instagram that @drollyankees shared a photo of its co-founder Peter Kilham who engineered the tubular bird feeder and revolutionized bird feeder design, I decided to pay tribute to him for helping make our lives as bird watchers that much more enjoyable.

If you’ve haven’t used a Droll Yankees feeder, then you don’t know what you’ve been missing.

And if you have used one of these feeders, then you know what I’m talking about and always want more.

Built to Withstand All Kinds of Nature’s Visitors

We’ve had squirrels climb up on our feeders and leave small bite marks on the metal perch posts and metal bases (that we quickly rectified with some Vaseline on the pole), and the feeder is still in excellent working condition.

If the feeder had plastic parts, like other feeders, the squirrels would have gnawed through it in a day.

And the deer stand on the bushes to enjoy a hit of birdseed too.

And yet the Droll Yankee Feeders endure.

Nature’s Reality TV

These feeders provider hours of nature’s reality tv as we enjoy all the songbirds, and even larger birds like Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Downy Woodpeckers, Cardinals and even Blue Jays at the American Bird 15” Green Songbird Feeder.

If you’re into birds and love bird watching as much as we do, and want to light up your backyard with colorful birds, then try using a Droll Yankees feeder.

Made in the USA

IntoBirds also loves that these bird feeders are made right here in Connecticut and support the local economy, as well as American workers in the supply chain throughout the country.

Droll Yankees offers a quality product with clean, modern design that fits seamlessly into every backyard decor.

The birds love the feeder. I love seeing the birds, and it’s a win-win all around.

Feed the birds and make a wold of difference

And the feeder has a lifetime warranty, so we’re covered as long as we enjoy bird watching and don’t have to worry about discarding unwanted bird feeders in landfills.

So thank you Peter Kilham for engineering the world’s best bird feeder and for making a huge difference to restore the balance of nature.

Let’s all coexist with our bird friends and feed the birds to make the world a better place.
