My tray feeder is probably my busiest feeder. I get the most birds at it all year. This is my first tray feeder. It is not very big and when it snows the seed is covered and when it rains the seed gets soggy.
I replaced the small tray with this beauty! It is covered, much bigger and the birds and seed stay dry. It can also fit many more birds. It is easy to fill. Just dump a scoop of seed in it. If I could only have one bird feeder, this would be it.
