English term or phrase: Bird feeder tray for use in cages
Hi,

I'm not sure what the best term for the kind of bird feeder tray or dish used in cages is - whenever I google "bird feeder tray" I only get the kind used for wild birds.

Thank you,

English translation:feeder/seed cup
Explanation:
Here are some options:

feeder cup
seed cup
feeder station
feeder tray

One of the reasons you may not find a lot of hits for caged birds, though, is that cages usually use what is known as a seed or feeder cup. I guess a feeder tray would be for feeding things like fruits and vegetables for birds like parrots, maybe?

I can find a few hits for feeder tray, like this one
"Aviary Style Feeder Tray"
http://www.bird-supplies.net/aviary-trays.html

but unless you are certain the device in question is flat, I would call it a feeder cup, seed cup, or simply feeder or feeding station if you're not sure what it looks like.
