Our WBU iron and pole system is the best around and what's even better about it is how easy it is to build a great bird feeding system. We call it "grown up legos" as it's fun to start with the basic system and just keep adding arms and feeders as you feel like.

Set-up

This is what a classic bird-feeding system would look like. It is easy to do and we can help you build a custom system to fit your every need and bird feeding desire. Let's start at the beginning.

Step 1 

 

Every good feeder starts with a good grounding system, so you'll need a base pole and stabilizer- see illustration to the left and photo below.

Base Pole

Once you have the base in place, you just add extra poles until you have your required height- about 6' or so. After that add baffles (to keep those pesky squirrels and raccoons at bay) - doesn't work for bears I am afraid and THAT'S another story......

Step 2Step 2

Now you add hooks for the feeders and maybe an extra arm or 2 for additional feeders and/or hanging baskets. The world is your oyster.......or so to speak. It's easy to add a double crook as seen below and then an extra arm....and so on.Double Crook and Arm

Then it's the final touches like the bluebird finial above. There are many finials to choose from including hummingbirds, cardinals and bees.

Step 3

You are now ready for the birds and yes, your first visitor will probably be a Tufted Titmouse (and they just love peanuts)

This is a great pole system. Stop by for a free leaflet and more information. See you soon!
