Review RateBeautifulLove looking at this feeder and love seeing so many beautiful birds enjoying it.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI couldn't be more happy with this product. It is very attractive and well built. The design allows each receptacle to contain either seed (or by flipping it upside down) water. My birds don't seem to be drinking the water though perhaps they will as we get deeper into summer and natural water sources get harder to find. If they don't take an interest in it by then, I'll have the option to put seed on both sides. I can even experiment with two different kinds of seeds to see what attracts which type of bird. The curlicue fixture from which these hang gives the entire thing a little bit of movement, like the balance of a scale, which may help to dissuade squirrels or other undesirables from getting into your birdseed. I used an angle bracket to mount mine to the side of an arbor rather than hang it from above. My cats and I are thoroughly enjoying the all day bird show. Now to find a source for the 50lb bags of birdseed I'm going to need....
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThese are very pretty and will look nice anywhere. Birds appear to like them also. They are light weight but appear to be solidly made. Easy to fill, the connections are good. They are plastic. Filled they balance nicely on the hanger. They came in a nice box that would make them a nice gift.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis Birdscapes Bird Feeder is the perfect thing for our Desert garden! We hang it in the shade because of the HEAT in our area and birds of all sizes love it. Having read that the BEST way to attract wild life in our hot, dry climate is to provide WATER, we fill both sides with water - but you could just as easily fill one or both sides with birdseed. And its very attractively made, so is a nice addition to our backyard. Also, because there are TWO silos, it needs filling less often. Recommended.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis was easy to set up. It attracted birds almost immediately after we placed it on a tree limb. It also attracts squirrels. It is fascinating to watch the squirrels hang from their tails and do other contortions to get to the seed. If it weren't for them eating or knocking out the seed onto the ground it would be a fun show.We have watched birds wait patiently on higher branches as others eat and fly off. And there are so many colorful ones.The only issue we have with this and it is really a minor issue .. is that the water portion seems a waste. We have not seen any bird or squirrel taking a drink. Perhaps if the weather were hot for days with no rain that would be different. We are toying with adding seed to both containers.This is a first-rate product and has brought us new found visitors to our back yard. Easy to set up, easy to refill and definitely attractive to winged friends and bushy tailed ones too.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI love this feeder. Since I had it and hung it on a branch in my backyard, I've really enjoyed watching the birds and occasionally, squirrels. Easy to assemble and fill. Just need to do it upside down and remember to get the small grain birdseeds. Work as expected and good looking too.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI'd been using a cheap bird feeder from a super store and the poor starlings couldn't ever get any food. Then I got this dual feeder. I decided to do seed in both sides (you can flip the container to whichever opening you prefer, food or water) and I hang a metal basket of suet in the middle. From the basket of suet I have a hanging basket of flowers. This entire setup is supporting that huge, heavy basket of flowers. The starlings show up and have absolutely no problem perching themselves to gorge. The only time I had a problem was when a fat starling sat on the feeder and it broke with him on it. I ran out pretty disappointed in the product until I discovered that it had only just become unscrewed, so I screwed it back in and we were back in business!There are notches in both the top and the bottom perches, but the plastic bottle actually has only one opening, which makes it easy to use with water. Nebraska is just too windy to fill these things with water, though.It's been holding up to thunderstorms and wind quite well. It's very elegant and the design of the hanger makes it easy for short people like me to place it in higher areas.Should something happen to this one, I would be sure to replace it with the same make and model.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI am happy with this feeder. It is plastic, but then that makes it lighter than glass and it doesn't break when it gets knocked to the ground by wind/squirrels/raccoons/bears (I have them all). There are no squirrel proof features, but grey squirrels find the base too small to be comfortable and red ones can get the seed out without having to chew and thus ruin the feeder.For me the water side is more decoration than necessary. I live in a cold area and on water. When it is warm enough for the feeder to hold water rather than ice, the birds can get water from our lake. I was happy to see that the feeders can easily be reversed to hold either water or seed. I have one of each now as it looks great this way, but in the winter I can switch both to seed.The seed section is not appropriate for fine seed like thistle, but works well for sunflower or mixes. They are very easy to fill.I am very happy with this feeder and will keep it in mind when shopping for gifts.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comItem arrived perfectly from amazon. Unpacked with ease, filled it with seed, and found a tree to hang it from. The next day the squirrels and birds were having a war of the seeds! Its a very nice looking feeder, and seems like it will last a season or three. Ill report back soon on the outcome of the war and who won.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comWe had this bird-feeder set up in no time and it looks great. We hung it on a tree in the backyard. The birds really love it, they are eating up the seed so fast it is hard to keep it filled!We haven't had any complaints about it so far and everyone that has seen it thinks it is nice.
