💰 Why is it a good deal?

This is just about as low as this feeder has been marked down since last spring, according to our price trackers. And considering you, your loved ones and pets will be treated to a new show every day, it'll pay for itself in no time.

🤔 Why do I need this?

Bird watchers of all ages will enjoy spying on their winged visitors from the comfort of home, and come winter, it'll be like having a bit of the wild outdoors inside.

Installing the Gray Bunny Window Bird Feeder is as simple as cleaning a window and pressing some suction cups up against it. That's it! From there, you can fill its removable tray with up to three cups of birdseed, and since there are dividers, you can add multiple types of feed. It's also equipped with drain holes to help keep seeds dry when it rains.

The transparent acrylic lets you catch all the bird action, and as long as you place it away from ledges and branches, squirrels won't have an easy time crashing the party. That said, if one happens to hop on, this feeder can hold up to 15 pounds!

💬 What reviewers say

More than 3,200 Amazon customers are chirping about how cool they find the Gray Bunny Window Bird Feeder.

👍 Pros

"The birds in our area absolutely love this," raved one happy shopper. "Our cats absolutely love to sit in the window and watch the different birds come by. We even had a storm come by with heavy rain and high wind and the bird feeder didn't budge at all, the suction cups work perfectly!"

"Sent this to my mom with a bag of birdseed for a Mother's Day gift and she loves it!" gushed another impressed buyer. "She is older and retired and has limited ability to install ... so ease of use was key. This was a winner."

"Wow. What an outstanding, high-quality, very sturdy bird feeder," said another nature lover. "The three suction cups are highly suction-y, the plastic (or it is acrylic?) is very durable, and the area for birds to perch is wide and open for maximum viewing. The plastic is crystal-clear, not foggy or cloudy like some cheaper 'see-through' feeders."

👎 Cons

One thoughtful reviewer noted that cleaning and filling the feeder can be a bit of a hassle. "My only complaint is the tray is very hard to remove, so I have to take it off the window to clean and refill it," they explained, adding: "Otherwise fantastic! ... I purchased this for my Mom and she is having great success with birds coming constantly!"

"A little small for larger birds," said a final fan. "My blue jays can use it, but because of their size, it's a little tough for them to land smoothly on it. That 'negative,' of course, has nothing to do with the Gray Bunny feeder quality. It just means I need to also put up a slightly bigger feeder for my larger feathered friends."

The cardinal rule of gift-giving? Don't buy something generic — and this clever bird viewer is anything but.

Don't forget some birdseed!

This No. 1 bestselling variety was curated to attract a wide range of birds, from blue jays to goldfinches. 

"This is a little expensive, but it's the only one that brings the birds like crazy," wrote a reviewer. "Blue jays, cardinals, finches, doves and sparrows all make a daily appearance for this. When I replaced [it] with a bag twice the size for the same price ... they stopped coming!"
