The striking copper leaf design of the 18” Brushed Copper Weather Shield adds year-round beauty while protecting your favorite bird feeder from rain and other inclement weather or providing instant shade to hummingbird nectar. The weather shield keeps the rain from ruining your bird seed while adding a touch of décor to your backyard and is wide enough to help deter squirrels, when placed at least 10 feet from a tree trunk or other object. The metal construction will easily withstand the elements, while the brushed copper colored finish adds a natural feel. Some assembly required, hang your feeder from the hook beneath the item, and use the top hook to hang the entire unit from a branch or bracket or hook. Includes a hook assembly for hanging.
