Review Ratere: feederSent in review, forgot to rate it a 5 star, Thanks
Review RateGood - could be great with spring-loaded perches.
Feeder works great, but I don't seem to get teh cardinals and bluebirds with it. Also only about 50% effective against squirrels - would be great if the perches were spring-loaded or ?? so that that collapsed whenever a squirrel got on them.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback and these suggestions! We've forwarded them to our Product Managers for review.
Review RateI wish the dome was sold separately
Although, the product I'm reviewing is over twenty years old, it is still useful, very different looking, the dome was not clear and had a hook underneath so I could switch types of feeders. My dome has deteriorated so badly from exposure that its almost broken away. I sure wish they sold it separately as it was much more useful.
Review RateSo far so good
I purchased this only recently, so I cannot vouch for its durability. But so far it’s doing the job very well, and the squirrels haven’t discovered it (yet). One thing I like about it is that it doesn’t go through the same amount of seed as the other feeders. The birds can’t quite gorge on the seeds—the delivery is a bit more measured, at least it seems that way, which I like very much.
Review RateGreat price and a great feeder!
Great feeder at a great price! My original one, the dome fell and the dome broke, it had lasted over 10 years. If I can find a replacement dome, I am going to pass it on to another senior in my community. We use two sections for hulled sunflower and two for safflower seed, it has two perches for each section, plenty of room for songbirds to feed. We have it mounted with other type feeders on a quadruple shepherds hook.
Review RateJust ok
Pros: seems very sturdy, made to last. Also, holds a lot of seed, it's been 3 weeks and I have not refilled it yet. Cons:. Seems to attract little birds only. Bigger birds like cardinals will not attempt to feed, which is a bummer because I am a fan of the cardinals. Don't know that it was worth $70, it's just ok. Thought of returning because all I seem to get are sparrows (boring!), but don't want to pay the return shipping. Will keep, but not thrilled with it at $70 price.
Review RateChanging my opinion
They do not have replacement parts as the one question suggested for chewed perches. That makes what i would consider a pretty expensive feeder useless.Response From Perky-Pet®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative

Although replacement parts may not currently be available, we back our feeders with a one-year replacement warranty in case of damages.

Review RateSquirrels chewing feeder
Not so sure squirrels chewing of the perches is that unusual. They did it to our two feeders.Response From Perky-Pet®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. Squirrels are indeed a common nuisance to bird feeders, and we would like to offer the following suggestions for dealing with them.
1) Hang feeders at least five feet above the ground and at least ten feet from potential launching spots, such as branches, fences, or decks.
2) Add cayenne pepper to the seed mix to repel squirrels without affecting the birds' enjoyment.
3) Try safflower seed, which is not appealing to squirrels.
4) Add a baffler above or below the feeder, depending on how it is hung or mounted.
We hope this information proves helpful. Please feel free to call our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions. Our feeders are covered under a one-year replacement warranty in case of damages.
Review RateGreat bird feeder
I love my bird feeder. I have it near my bird bath it is such fun watching the cardinals and blue jays feed and splash in the bird bath. Will be ordering another feeder soon I'm the envy of my neighbors Have given them your website
Review RateExcellent feeder
This is a great feeder. I had a very persistent squirrel that defied All the odds and got into it. Chewed off a couple of perches and chewed the port holes. I bought a new one and now it is squirrel proof. Food stays dry too. I would definitely recommend this feeder to anyone that is looking for a feeder. It holds a lot of seed too.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What are the most popular bird seeds to use?
A: Black Oil Sunflower Seed is the most popular bird seed. It is much smaller than the traditional sunflower seed and best for those birds with smaller bills, such as the sparrow, junco and goldfinch. This seed is accepted by the greatest variety of birds.
Mixed Seed is also popular. It is best to buy the mixes that contain white proso millet, a tiny cream colored seed with a shiny shell. Mixes containing finely cracked corn and black oil sunflower are also preferred by a large number of birds.
Niger (Thistle Seed) is imported from Africa and Asia. Niger won't germinate, but it does have a tendency to become moldy due to lack of air circulation. If you notice mold on the seed, it must be removed from the feeder and the feeder must be cleaned thoroughly.
Q: How do I clean my bird feeders?
A: Before filling your feeder with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:
- Remove all old seed.
- Soak feeder in water.
- Scrub feeder and allow to air dry.
- Rake and remove accumulated hulls and droppings from underneath the feeders.
- Spread mulch (bark or wood) under the feeder, replace mulch when soiled.
- Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.
Q: What is the importance of providing water for wild birds?
A: Wild birds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need seed. Birds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also for bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide birds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for birds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy. By adding a water source, you also can attract a larger variety of birds to your yard. You may even attract more colorful birds that don't eat seed, but are in need of water!
