7 Affordable Bird Feeders with Good Customer Reviews

Are you in the market for an affordable bird feeder, but are worried about buying something cheap and crappy? In this post I did some research on Amazon to find a handful of feeders listed under $25 that also have a customer review rating of 4.5/5 stars or higher. I tried to find a variety of bird feeders, ranging from tube and tray feeders, to hummingbird and window feeders.

These are all good feeders to explore if you’re new to the hobby and aren’t ready to make a sizable financial investment yet. They’ll also be a solid addition to any existing bird feeding station. I’ve also used many of these feeders myself. I’ve been a bird feeding hobbyist for years!

This tray feeder is made of cedar wood and holds multiple pounds of bird seed. A tray feeder is a great option as it will support birds of all sizes (like Cardinals, Blue Jays and Red-Bellied Woodpeckers).

The cedar is made to resist fading and water damage. I listed this feeder first because I’d highly recommend it for a first-time bird feeder.
