Review RateGreat feeder
This feeder may be inexpensive, but it works beautifully. I hung it near the other feeders and it was mobbed with birds during our recent snowstorm.
Review Rateimprovement of the 2 in 1 bird feeder
The 2 in 1 Bird Feeder with convertible ports which I believe is your model 481 ( or 381 or 386 ) Made in China with the # 11 in the base has green plastic cap , ports with perches, and base works well except that the birds peck off the perches and parts of the ports. I believe they do this to prevent competition from other birds i.e. survival of the fitest. I think you would have a better product if the perches were metal or reinforced by metal rods. I recognize that t he feeders are made in China & such a improvement would entail additional expense but it would improve them.
Review RateLove it
Love this feeder. My GoldenFinches are so happy to have so many perches to sit on. Nice size so I don't have to fill every day,
Review RateGreat feeder!
Good price, great feeder. Our finches love it!
Review RateThe goldfinches love the perches.The goldfinches (and other small birds as well) seem to love the new "T" perches, which allow them to face into the port rather than sitting sideways to the feeder. What a great perch design!
Review RateFast delivery and just what I wanted.This is a better feeder than the expensive kind because the seed is not tossed out in the wind or drenched by the rain as much.
Review RateEverything I hoped for!!Good quality and easy to set up
Review RateAmazon Review, Great ProductThese are the best finch feeders for the money. Have been using them for years. Easy to clean and the hold up nice.
Review RateAmazon ReviewYellow finch feeder is somewhat hard to find in the usual stores. I noticed yellow colored finch feeder is perfect for yellow finches. They like to come for this feeder. I only buy yellow colored feeder. As far as I can remember its price is also reasonable.
Review RateAmazon Review, Feeder is as cute as the birdsI really like this feeder...it's appealing to the eye, it has a screw on top, the little perches are more comfortable for the birds because they can stand facing the food or stand sideways and turn their heads to feed. Plus the perches are very well attached and tight to the feeder...they are not hollow, flimsy straw like perches. It is made out of plastic, but it seems sturdy enough to me as I live in Las Vegas and don't have to deal with cold, snowy winters. Don't hesitate, this is VERY NICE for the money.
