Bird lovers everywhere struggle with the mess of birds spilling seed from feeders onto the ground. It wastes seed, makes a mess, can damage your lawn, and attracts unwanted rodents. But just attach this lightweight fiberglass seed hoop to almost any bird feeder and catch virtually all the seed your birds spill.

It comes in a 30" diameter and a smaller 16" diameter for shepherd hooks and tube feeders. It's designed to fit almost any bird feeder, but folds to 1/3 its full size for easy storage and shipping. Groundfeeders love to feed from the seed hoop, and since it is made of mesh, seed dries quickly and won't rot! The Seed Hoop is a winner for you and your feathered friends!


  • Adapts to virtually all bird feeders
  • Is durable, lightweight and sturdy
  • Easy to attach or store
  • Saves money, catching up to 90% of spilled seed
  • Protects lawn and garden from rotting seeds, and damage to grass
  • Less mess on the ground for you to have to clean up
  • Serves as a platform feeder, keeping birds safe from ground predators
  • Eliminates a food source for rodents
  • Increases pleasure in bird watching, as more birds feed and they feed in full view
  • Wind guard on each saves even more seed
  • The SeedHoop also does well in snow
"The SeedHoop made feeding birds nice! Before, the seed would get on the ground. Then it built up and when it got wet, it started to rot and smell. It's more cost-effective too, because the birds are eating the seed that normally would have gotten dumped on the ground. It gives the ground-feeding birds a place where they can be safe. It's fabulous, especially for someone who doesn't want to see hard-earned money dumped on the ground." Shane, Ogden, Utah 
"I think the SeedHoop is a really good idea! Mine keeps the ground feeders up off the ground and away from the neighborhood cats. Less seed is lost, especially in the winter when spilled seed is otherwise buried in the snow on the ground. I have it on my pole feeder and it has held up well against wind." Debbie, Nebraska

Seed hoop was great, communication not so great

The hoop was exactly what I was looking for and my son (the recipient) was delighted. However, I was unhappy that - even though my confirmation email said I would be notified when the item shipped, and I asked a couple times when it was going to ship - I did not find out it had actually shipped until it had already been delivered. This is a problem because we have had a history of packages going missing at his location, so clear communication about ETA is important. Hopefully the Wild Bird Store Online can fix that

Works okay

The hoop has been effective in catching seed, however I would not say it works with all feeders. I had to buy a new feeder with a heavier lid as the metal hooks continued to detach from my tube feeder and open the lid and dump all the seed on the ground. I hadn’t planned on purchasing a new feeder. The bigger feeder seems to be holding the hoop in place. I also experienced the same problem in placing a rock in the center and like an earlier review the rock slipped to one side and the wind caused the rock to fall out.

Seed catcher

The seed catcher is working well to keep the seed from falling onto the ground. Birds like sitting on it too. Very happy with the purchase. The order came quickly.

Works like a charm

Not what I ordered

I hunted for a seed catcher that had a hole in the middle b/c I was using it for a feeder I have on a pole. This one came with no hole. It’s a nice seeed catcher if you just want to hang it off of your hanging bird feeder.
