Mel Toellner, president of the company that manufacturers this feeder, says, "This is the only feeder that can guarantee that seed stays 100 percent dry and available to the birds -- no matter if it's used in a blizzard or during day after day of spring or Pacific Northwest rains.” Mel says that because of its unique weatherproof design, they call it the 'All Weather Feeder®'.
Birds feed from a lower platform (making all birds visible), and reach up into a fully-sheltered slot to feed from the feeder. That way you don’t have to hassle with the mess of cleaning out ice, snow, and rain from the troughs and seed ports of other feeders. The birds benefit from seed always being available -- which is especially important after ice storms -- and from better sanitation due to no wet, moldy or spoiled seed. Concern is rising about Avian disease being spread around through bird feeding. The combination of no wet seed and ease of cleaning also make the All Weather Feeder® the most sanitary feeder available on the market. Other important features include UV-stabilized polycarbonate (so the feeder will not fade in the sun) ease of filling and high capacity (4-quart), both important to the ever-growing number of older Canadians -- many of whom enjoy bird feeding. These features also make keeping the feeder full less time consuming.
Toellner also says, "I believe that the reason the All Weather Feeder® will be a success is best summarized by Linda Rameriz, owner of a bird store in Florida: 'I love this feeder! It is the only feeder I recommend to homeowners on the many golf courses around us. The All Weather Feeder® can take direct hits from golf balls (it is durable) and from sprinkler systems day after day and the seed still stays dry!' "
