Wingscapes’ AutoFeeder has a programmable timer that lets you determine how much seed to dispense and when. That prevents the birds from emptying your feeder quickly, so you don’t have to refill as often.
The company says birds learn to visit at feeding time, so you can time that for when you’re home.
The battery-powered feeder holds 1 gallon of seed and can be programmed to dispense it up for four times daily. If you dispensed 6 ounces of seed a day, for example, you would have to refill once every 38 days.
The AutoFeeder can be ordered for $129.95 plus shipping at www.wingscapes.com or 888-811-9464.
