Wild Birds Unlimited contacted me regarding an exciting opportunity to review some of their top of the line products and with winter bird feeding well underway I figured who was I to refuse such a generous offer. After spending a lot of time on their site and looking at all of their fabulous products I decided to try out on of their EcoClean bird feeders whose "products feature a patented technology that inhibits the surface growth of damaging bacteria, mold and other microbes. This protection won’t wash or wear away, and it uses environmentally friendly technology", which was a big win/win as far as I was concerned.
The final product I would chose was the EcoClean Medium Seed Tube Feeder
Let me tell you I was impressed by the feeder the moment I took it out of the box due to how heavy it is. I can't tell you how many feeders I've gone through during winter due to cheap plastic which doesn't do well in New England winters and can tell right away this feeder will be with me for years to come as it appears as if it can take a harsh winter beating which is what we've been having lately so another big plus for the feeder.
Another HUGE plus is the fact that the feeder opens from both the bottom and top. After having that horrible finch eye disease epidemic at my feeders two years ago, I am neurotic about making sure my bird stations are clean during winter feeding as I don't want a repeat of it, but sometimes the feeders can be hard to clean which won't happen to this feeder due to this key feature.
And the other added protection of course which is the patented antimicrobial product protection which was a big selling point for me.
So was I happy with the product. While I can't speak for the birds just yet ;-), I can tell you the product exceeded my expectations as far as overall quality and how nice looking it is.
In fact, I was so impressed I decided to start my winter feeding an entire month before I normally do. The feeder is filled with the Wild Birds Unlimited Choice Blend Wild Bird Seed so we'll see how the birds like it and pray the squirrels don't find it anytime soon. ;-).
And just when you think it can't get any better it does. That's right folks, you too can have the chance to have this feeder or any other product of your choosing (valued at $50.00 or under) as part of a giveaway I'm doing on my blog in conjunction with Wild Birds Unlimited.
