Review RateThe best we've found
We have been using the "Grandview" feeder for at least 15 years. It is the only one we have found that holds as much feed and accommodates as many birds - 12 feeding stations. They are often all occupied and they seem to be acceptable to finches, chickadees, doves, jays, blackbirds (brewers and red wing), cowbirds (unfortunately), grossbeaks and others. I had to search for it and was glad to find it once more. So were the birds. I admit they can be a pain to clean but don't need it often and are well worth the effort. As mentioned in other reviews - please don't discontinue this feeder.
Review RateFeeds lots of birds
I just bought my second one of these feeders. It took a little while to put it together, but not too hard. The thing that makes this feeder different from all my other feeders is that each level of the feeder has seed until the end. Most feeders empty out from top to bottom so the top ports are empty, then the middle ports are empty, then the bottom feeding stations finally empty as the seed is eaten. This one has special pieces that keep the birds eating at each level as the seed gets eaten. So even if the feeder is half full, each of the 12 feeding ports still has seed in the holes. Unique feature. Holds lot of seed. Both finches and cardinals and most of my birds seem to like it. Price is very good. This was recommended to me and I would also recommend you try it.
Review RatePerky Pet Birdscape Grandview feederI bought these 2 Grandview feeders and the delivery was quick and the product excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to order from Perky pet for any of my birding needs!
Review RateGreat valueLove the 12 port feeder, enjoying the many backyard residents feeding from the smallest finch, and nuthatches to the larger birds, cardinals and blue jays. Customer service fantastic!
Review RateThis bird feeder is the best I\'ve ever owned.I am so happy with my bird feeder. It was easy to put together and the birds love it!
Review RateSquirrel vulnerableI would not consider buying this feeder again. The feed ports are plastic and squirrels easily chew through them. No way to fix.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeTo prevent squirrels from gaining access to the seed, we recommend hanging a feeder at least 5 feet from the ground and 10 feet away from launching points such as branches, decks, fences, and rooftops.
Using a baffler above the feeder can also keep these pesky critters from landing on the feeder and stealing the seed. We appreciate this feedback and have shared these concerns with our Product Manager.
Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review Rate12 Feeder PortsI first bought this bird feeder many years ago. After several years, I bought another.
Several years more (after several squirrel chewings on the feeder ports) I have to
replace another. I would recommend this feeder to everyone. I holds a LOT of bird seed - and the mourning doves call also feed from the bottom tray, when they usually are ground feeders. Please order this bird feeder. You'll love it!
Review RateHolds a LOT of birdseed!I just bought (and hung) my third Grandview feeder. Each one has lasted at least 15 years - they are almost indestructible, and the only feeder of this design that I have been able to find. However, this will probably be my last one; according to my calculations when it wears out I'll be about 102 years old, and likely will have lost interest in bird feeders.
Review RateCrowd PleaserBeen looking a l o n g time for this feeder to replace one rocky racoon demo'd. Lots to feed in the backyard, 12 stations is a must.
Review RateLove this feederMy husband gave me one of these feeders years ago and I have since bought several more. The problem is NOT with the feeder --the problem is with the raccoons who keep tearing them up. I love this feeder and so do the many types of birds who come to my woods. I like the 12 ports for the small birds and the tray for the cardinals. The only drawback, which is due to the raccoons, is that I always take off the hanger wire and replace with 30 lb fishing line. That can hold a 30 lb raccoon hanging on the bottom! I'm always worried that they will be discontinued (big mistake!) so I keep the old ones to scavenge parts from. You will not be disappointed. One trick for filling: cut the bottom off of a 2 liter pop bottle and the spout fits right in the fill tube.
