Review RateOne of my favorites
I have owned a few of these feeders. I make three modifications when I get them. 1) I cut and staple ( and silicon) pieces of wood to enclose the ends where the suet holders are. Otherwise, the seed falls out. 2) I replace the rope with steel cable with cable ties and make a loop with cable tie to ensure it doesn't slip out of the feeder. The rope makes me nervous about coming undone or rotting. 3) I attach branches to the underside to stick out and let the birds of all sizes land on them. I drill holes in the branches and put the screws inside the hopper area from underneath. The birds love this and many more can land and get "in line" for the seeds and suet. Having a suet holder on each end keeps it level. I really like these feeders.
The first one of these feeders I purchased fell off the hook and the plexiglass panels both cracked. Company replaced it / no hassle about it. The feeder itself loses a lot of seed from the 2 troughs and when it rains/snows the seed in the trays gets wet and clogs. Grrrr. Also neither one hangs right. Always a bit crooked no matter how or where it is hung up. I much prefer the large mesh/cling feeders but unfortunately, not all birds can use them. I do like the dual holders on the sides as I put homemade suet blocks in one and the other, I put whole in shell peanuts. This is why I rate a 3 star. Next time I will go for one that is better designed.Response From Perky-Pet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis is a great feeder and I highly recommend it to anyone. It holds plenty of seeds and is easily filled with the roof lifting off. The side suet feeders are a favorite of my visiting birds and the over hanging roof protects it from the elements. It is easy to clean and maintain. I have another one on the way to double my bird feeding/watching pleasure.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI think it looks better in person, than in the picture. Very sturdy and the cedar is a nice thickness. Not cheaply made by any means. Should last a long time. The sides to hold the suet are not flimsy, but solid. It's not small, so I think it will hold up nicely in the winter. Great quality and worth it for the price.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis is the best feeder that I've found. I can see if it needs filled from my kitchen window, 50 feet away. It is easy to fill, holds a lot of seed and birds can eat from all sides at once.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comBought this for my grandson,he collects them in his backyard,its a great gift for kids . He is 4 and its fun for him to use and easy to fill.

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 a light water/bleach solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach).
- 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!
