Cleaning: Dirty bird feeders spread disease. We recommend cleaning your feeders weekly, or monthly at a minimum. Do not put your feeder in the dishwasher as the high temperatures can permanently damage the feeder parts. Clean your feeders outdoors with a large bucket, and always wear gloves when cleaning. Soak your feeder in a 9:1 solution of water and bleach for 15 minutes. Then use a bird feeder brush to scrub the feeder with dish soap and water. Refill when completely dry.

Great feeder except for the ...

Dec 7, 2023
Great feeder except for the fact the rubber grommet on top to seal out the water wears out too quick. Nowhere can I find the exact replacement. I sent you an email

Some birds are having trouble with this
4
Oct 2, 2022
Day 1 of having this new feeder up. It is replacing a similarly configured feeder that had bottom tray made of screen (which has been destroyed by racoons). My first impressions are that the depth is a little too much for the comfort of the smaller birds like chickadees and titmice. Some titmice can not comprehend the clear bottom and try to get at the seeds through the clear plastic. The red-bellied woodpeckers have not figured it out either and may have given up. We took the top off in the hope that we can get them all to adjust to the clear aspect, then maybe they can adjust to the top. I wish the top went up higher to allow more space between the top and the dish. Wish I'd shopped around more before buying this.

Second Feeder of this type failed
4
Oct 2, 2022
The birds like this feeder and it gives the seed some protection from the rain and snow, however, both of my feeders had cracks form in the plastic bowl around the metal center piece. The second feeder lasted just 2 winters seasons (I do not feed during the summer and early fall months). At $13 for the part plus over $9 in shipping to get the replacement part to me in Wisconsin, I won't be fixing my feeder.

Redesigned dome feed has issue with tray mount
3
Oct 2, 2022
I've had a yankee domed seed feeder for many years for feeding meal worms and have been very happy with the product. Last year I replaced my aging dome feeder which had succumbed to years of UV rays. Unfortunately, the product has been redesigned since I last purchased one and it now has an issue with how the brass nut is supported that attaches to the dowel. Over the past year, I have purchased two of the redesigned dome feeders and both have failed in the same way within 1 to 2 months of use. The plastic around the brass nut is fracturing resulting in the base falling off. Clearly, the nut is lacking sufficient material to support it. Also, I should point out that the feeder is situated and adjusted such that it is only used by birds smaller than robins.

Nice while it lasted, which wasn't very long

Oct 2, 2022
This blew down a couple times before I bent the hook on the brass rod into a closed ring & attached it with a carabiner. But by then, the dish had apparently cracked at the point where the brass nut was attached, and it took only a few days for a bluejay to pull the dish off, further cracking the attachment point so that the nut would no longer hold. I've jury-rigged a repair but I now need a socket wrench to remove the dish for cleaning or adjustment. All this in less than 6 months of service! Very disappointed.

Droll Yankees® Seed Saver® Bird Feeder Review

Oct 2, 2022
overall, fantastic except my bluebirds are still a little hesitant about it,,,i like its quality, the spill resistant bowl/dish and its thickened rim for birds to perch easier. i have run a string with a fishing weight on it from the bottom to keep it more steady in the wind

Awesome Feeder
5
Oct 2, 2022
I’ve always had a problem with wet seed. This keeps the seed dry and the birds seem to love it. It’s a little small but an awesome feeder. Wish I had ordered the larger one. Well worth the money if you Ike to feed and watch the birds.

Almost perfect

Heavy plastic, sturdy, well made, and the birds love it. I wish the pole was longer for much easier access filling the bowl.

Seed Saver with adjustable domme
5
Oct 2, 2022
I had this type feeder from Wild Birds Unlimited for years, but they discontinued it. I love the feeder for cardinals & small songbirds because the dome keeps the larger birds out. The Droll Yankee feeder is great - high quality & certainly less expensive than the WBU. I only wish the dome was a bit larger.

Seed saver with adjustable doom

Oct 2, 2022
Using this in place of a tube feeder. Birds wasted a lot of finch seed with the tube feeder. With this seed saver feeder the waste has gone way down and the birds seem to like the feeder because they can find the seeds they like the most.

Q&A

Where can I find replacement rubber washers to adjust the height of the dome for my feeder? I can no longer adjust it because the tiny elastic washer is gone. Would a rubberband work? My bluebirds, wrens, chickadees LOVED this little feeder because it was perfect for JUST them... but now the mockingbirds claimed their ownership Thanks!
