Bird Table on Stand

When you think about traditional wooden bird table stands you would say they look just like this; slanted roof, large platform on a post with a base to keep it standing up.

Here are only quality bird tables you can buy with a focus on bird tables on a stand, with a solid, chunky post balanced on four wide reaching legs. Fixed on top of the bird table is a large, covered bird table top with a roof in slate, felt or layered wooden panels - along with a flat feeding platform for birds to enter.

Not necessary the best wooden bird table to buy in the UK but are sure up there as the very best you can buy overall.

One positive of all wooden bird tables featured is all stand approximately 6 feet tall - so will keep wild birds safer while feeding.

Ground to platform clearing is important as bird feel safer, thus are more willing to use the feeder with bird seed mixes, peanuts and suet balls awaiting their arrival.

Occasional fixed half way up the stand are a number open trays fixed on the wooden posts - which allow larger bird species to feed if the covered bird table is restricted.

Bird tables are all covered roof options in all medium; including slate, felt or nicely built using layered wooden panels, to give the appearance of roof tiles.

Little to no assembly required for the bird table platform, but the post or legs will need be.

Expect bird tables to be finished in a wood stain or be treated in a preserve or anti-bacteria treatment.

No impaling into the ground as you would with wild bird feeding stations so a four-leg system is sure to keep the tables standing up in high wind.

Remember if the bird table tips over at all, it can collapse on its on weight, thus the need to avoid this ever happening should be a top priority.

With a focus on a wooden bird table on a stand, it would also need a good cover as to keep the rain off the bird feed.

So rest assured all options have a roof in all mediums: so they can include felt, real or slate effect - or more than likely in a wooden roof design.

However, while no assembly is usually required on the feeding platform, any additional trays, plus the four legs - will require self-assembly with fixings included.

Why I consider this wooden bird table to be the very best one to buy in the UK, is its huge table top for adding bird feed.

Protection by the elements is helped using a high eave wooden roof, fixed in place with four equally solid pillars on each corner.

Whilst its an already assembled table top, the bird table stand legs will need assembly.

What else you'll get with this quality built table is a two mid-way up open feeding tables to apply additional feed on the stand.

Skojig: Sheltered Bird Table for Small Birds

Skojig Sheltered Bird Table for Small Birds

Rated high among past customers on Amazon, but at a price that is classed as cheaper than most.

What I would call a anti-large bird, bird table is this more affordable yet very sturdy table with a far reaching roof.

This roof is further protected as you place feed underneath it with a layer of waterproof felt - so the bare wood will last longer.

One feature you'd come to notice most on this bird table is what seems to be a layer nuisance timber stopping birds entering the feeding platform.

Make no mistake its only there as to be more of a wooden bird table for small birds only, thus Blackbirds, Crows and certainly Pigeons will find it almost impossible to pass.

Theme of the bird table is rounded log or timber planks; thus the whole table has a comfortable, yet attractive look to it.

What is different to other bird tables on the list is its far reaching legs; attractive they're but will sure make it hard for the table to tumble over in high winds.

Lots of assembly to be had with this wooden bird table as the table top, legs and stand all need to be put together before use - all screws needed are included.

Once up and running you'll have yourself quite a flimsy bird table, but certainly one that will last even if it was damaged by falling over in wind.

Its not so much a wide reaching angled bird table - and one that is double overlapped which is a nice touch - but a roof that won't quite keep the rain off feed.

And while that isn't true for most bird feeding tables, at least any rain can drain away.

Sure to stand up with little wind though as it as a flat, wide reaching leg assembly, and equally a solid build for keeping the table top upright.
