There is something peaceful about watching birds eat in a bird feeder. But sometimes, vermin like squirrels get into the feeder and ruin them, stealing all the seed and chasing the birds away. Putting your bird feeder on a bird feeder stand can fix that. Squirrels can't climb them, leaving all the yummy seeds for the myriad of avian visitors attracted to the free food.
10 Recommendations and 178 Ideas
Basic bird feeder stand
Your new stand doesn’t need to be a big investment, especially if you want the actual feeder to be the star of the show. In that case, you can simply look for a basic model with a hook.
Still, don’t compromise on quality!
For example, since your new bird feeder stand is likely to be exposed to the rain, we recommend a heavy-grade steel design with rust-free and weather-resistant powder coating.
More decorative bird feeder stand
You can make a noticeable decorative statement even without opting for the most ornate designs.
In fact, a single element going beyond the usual symmetrical shapes will work wonders, just like this hook with a more retro feel.
This is a handy compromise if you’d like to keep it simple (perhaps because you have a minimalist or contemporary garden) but still showcase your decorative flair.
Bird feeder stand in a lighter finish
Another versatile option is to choose a bird feeder stand in a basic metallic finish. This is a wise idea if you already have other outdoor furniture pieces or accent elements in the same color.
As long as these stainless-steel models are still rust- and weather-resistant, you’re good to go.
Bird feed stand with bird motif
Most bird feeder stands are either fairly basic or follow an ornate design, but some others take this decorative approach even further by incorporating a recognizable motif.
While this could be anything from a floral to a coastal theme, how about reinforcing its true purpose with a bird design?
Double birdhouse stand
How about catching two birds with one stone…or, better, with the same stand? A space-saving option consists of double birdhouse stands with two hooks in a symmetrical design.
How you make the most of them is entirely up to you: if you want to be known as the most nature-loving soul in the neighborhood, opt for two bird feeders.
For a more decorative result, just pair up one bird feeder with a pot of flowers or garden lights.
Bird feeder stands in an accent color
As you’ve probably noticed, most bird feeder stands are black. Not a fan of neutral colors?
While you might need to spend a few more minutes scouting for one, you can find stands in other hues, too (and it’ll be totally worth it, especially if you find one in your backyard’s accent color!).
Bird feeding station ideas
Perhaps, now that you think about it, you want something beyond a bird feeder and pole. Maybe you’d like to spoil those birdies and, at the same time, create a truly special, whimsical corner?
Then there are lots of bird feeding station ideas for you to choose from!
In most cases, they involve a birdbath tray and additional hooks for more feeders, flowers, lights, or whatever you wish to hang next to them.
DIY bird feeder stand with chain
If squirrels are not a problem for you (perhaps because they don’t tend to hang around in your garden or because you’ve already invested in a cage design for the actual feeder), have you considered using a chain as a stand?
This is a cost-effective and versatile solution that you can move around more easily whenever you wish.
