I just love my platform feeder I built right outside my upstairs bedroom window. I have my desk right next to it and have the chance to see hundreds of birds all day visiting my feeders. It also gives a great chance for closeups of different birds like this woodpecker.

One thing about having a feeder on the window edge, I have yet to see a bird get hurt coming in as they stop at the platform. Once in awhile one might bang the window taking off, but with no speed, they don’t get hurt. I also have two hanging feeders and suet feeders right there, too. Mark
