Differences between bird baths, feeders and tables
Stainless steel birdbaths, feeders and tables that have a house shape typically provide access to food, but also some form of shelter. Many styles feature a base, with pitch roofed nesting area. Contemporary bird feeding stations made from durable stainless steel comprise of a curved half moon feeder perched onto a spike.
Stainless steel birdbaths traditionally have a sturdy stand base with a bowl on top. The feeding station can be used to provide food or water. Sleek and stylish freestanding contemporary birdbath designs are attached to the top of a pole, so that they can be staked into the ground.
Usually made in a cylindrical shape, the bird feeder has a metal cage that holds the food in place, and metal ends. The feeder is designed to hold either nuts or fat balls, and is hung up on a hook. Many styles feature a strong and protective metal squirrel proof cover that lowers to save the feed for the birds. Other modern shapes of feeders are also available, like plastic models.
