We accept that not everybody has room in their backyard for some of the gazebos and pergolas that we’ve reviewed elsewhere on this site, so today, we’re going to look at a completely different type of gazebo.
The photo at the top left of this article gives you a big clue, and if that’s not enough, then let us just say that it’s not big enough for you, and it’s not even big enough for your kids – because it’s a gazebo bird feeder!
Yes, they even make gazebos for birds (although you’ll probably find that those thieving squirrels will find a way in too so they can steal a bit of food).
Even if you’re not a dedicated bird watcher (aka twitcher), it’s always nice to see a bit of wildlife in your garden, whether it’s birds or butterflies, in all their many colours, or maybe small mammals such as foxes, or even those pesky squirrels.
So, what type of birds can you attract with gazebo bird feeders?
Well, the list is quite long, of course, and it will depend on where you live, time of year, etc., but you should expect to see any of the following: chickadees, finches, goldfinches, grosbeaks, juncos, kinglets, siskins, sparrows, titmice, towhees, woodpeckers, wrens, redpolls, nuthatches, cardinals and bluebirds.
You will find many different styles of gazebo birdfeeder, so what we are presenting here is but a small sampling of what is available:
|Estate Gazebo Bird Feeder||Gazebo Bird Feeder With Cedar Roof||Gazebo Bird Feeder With Tile Roof|
|Gazebo Hopper Feeder||GoGreen Coppertop Gazebo Feeder||Greyfield Gazebo Birdfeeder And Planter Box With Mounting Post|
|Hanging Spindle Bird Feeder||Large Post Bird Feeder||Le Grand Gazebo Bird Feeder – Natural Cedar|
|Post Mount Bird House||Red Cedar Birdfeeder||Treated Pine Pagoda Style Birdfeeder|
Now, for those of you who like to build your own stuff, then we have more DIY plans from WoodcraftPlans.com:
Whether you go with a gazebo feeder on a mounting post, or a gazebo birdfeeder that hangs from a tree, you’ll get full patterns, hints and tips, and more – just like you do with their kids’ gazebo plans.
And finally, it’s always a great idea to expose your children to the wonders of Mother Nature as early on in life as you can, so while you may not be an expert on birds yet, you can always buy a good beginner’s book (or DVD) about bird watching, to get your children started. (It might also be a good idea to get them a pair of binoculars too!)

We’ll be back with something a bit more traditional tomorrow!
