Emsa: The New Landhaus Bird Feeder – for Winter and Summer Use

Wouldn’t it be nice to watch birds feed even on the smallest of balconies? No problem whatsoever with the new Landhaus Bird Feeder by Emsa. In vibrant colours and trendy picket fence look, this item is a wonderful eye-catcher on terrace or balcony all year round.

During the winter months, the new bird feeder serves as the ideal snack station for the great Tit, Pied Flycatcher or many other species of small songbirds: Fill the feeder with birdseeds and fruit or hang a fat ball on the separate hook. During the hot months of summer, it serves as a colourful birdbath or refreshing drinking trough. And it is also absolutely hygienic: In comparison to conventional bird feeders made of wood, it is very easy to clean thoroughly. Simply take it apart into two parts. 100% weatherproof and “made in Germany”, the bird feeder is the ideal extension to the Landhaus bird house.

Clever fastening options

The bird feeder can be hung in a tree or on the wall of your house. If you want to fasten the bird feeder to the balcony railing or a downpipe, the new universal holder with its robust, weatherproof Velcro fastener is simply ideal. And with the new rod holder, simply stick it into the ground.

Emsa is exhibitor at the spoga+gafa 2014 in Cologne and can be found in hall 10.1 at stands E010 and F011.
