Lighthouse Birdfeeder

Updated on February 9, 2014

Lighthouses and Birds--a Great Combination

There is really nothing quite so entertaining as sitting at the kitchen table watching the birds. I could sit for hours over my cup of hot Dr. Pepper just watching those wonderful little creatures enjoying the feasts I have left for them in my birdfeeders.

Two of my favorite hobbies are watching birds and photographing lighthouses. For Christmas my husband, being the thoughtful guy that he is, surprised me with the perfect gift for me, a lighthouse birdfeeder.

This birdfeeder also features a solar light at the top so at night the light shines through the windows of the little lighthouse. Very Cool!! I was so surprised that he found a gift to combine both of these things that I enjoy!

I love sitting at our kitchen table watching the little birds at the feeder and daydreaming about the next lighthouse I will photograph!

Lots of Bird Feeders

When I started looking for birdfeeders to recommend on this page I was amazed at how many different types are out there. Before my husband bought me the lighthouse birdfeeder, I had not really paid any attention to different types of birdfeeders. When I started to write this page and really looked at all the varieties out there I was amazed. You could find these colorful little lighthouse birdfeeders in many different sizes and shapes Here are a few more that I liked.

I love this bird feeder too. It looks just like Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in the Outerbanks of South Carolina. I was able to visit this beautiful lighthouse a few years ago. It is nicknamed "America's Lighthouse"

This colorful birdfeeder reminds me of the lighthouse at Hilton Head SC. It was one of the first lighthouses I photographed and will always be one of my favorites. I share a photo of it further down on this page.

Solar Lighthouse Finch Birdfeeder - lights up at night

Here is the birdfeeder that I got for Christmas. I love the way it is a replica of a lighthouse and even lights up at night. The little birds in my area discovered this birdfeeder the day I put it up and they are there constantly. As the bird food depletes more of the lighthouse lights up at night.

It was such a surprise when I opened this gift from my husband. He had wrapped it in two separate packages; one with the birdhouse and then the second with a milk jug size gallon of finch food. He put it under the tree several days before Christmas and I was really puzzled. I had no idea what he had gotten. He knows I love lighthouses but I would have never guessed this darling little birdfeeder was in the package.

This birdfeeder is made of all metal and is 14 inches tall. It will hold about 1 1/2 lbs of finch bird seed which is dispenses through the mesh.

 

Birdhouses for Lighthouse Enthusiasts

If like me, you like lighthouses and birds, I thought you might also enjoy a lighthouse birdhouse. These clever little birdhouses will add some colorful lighthouse décor to your garden. They will also provide a home for the birds that you feed at your birdfeeders.

You can choose from several different kinds. I think I favor the red and white one shown below. These birdhouses are sure to give you hours of birdwatching pleasure.

This birdhouse reminds me of many of the lighthouses I have seen around the Great Lakes.

What kind of birdfeeders do you have in your yard. Stop by and leave a message. I'd love to hear from you.

Do you have a favorite birdfeeder? - or perhaps a favorite lighthouse

      You know that my 'favorite' lighthouse is the Tybee Island LIghthouse here on the Georgia coast. I should suggest to them to make a Tybee lighthouse birdfeeder. :)
