This feeder is made from red cedar. Feeding can take place on all sides of the feeder. It contains two built in suet cages on each end. It has interchangable plexi and mesh inserts which allow seed, suet, or peanuts to be fed from the end compartments. The roof unlocks and pivots open for easy filling. The hopper holds up to an amazing 2 1/2 gallons of seed. Post mounting suggested.
