Review RateAmazon Review, This is \"For the Birds\" only in a good way!The only drawback to this feeder is that the birds like it so much, that it requires almost daily refilling. A great product, though, and it looks like one that will last!
Review RateAmazon Review, Really good feeder!I purchased both the green No/No Seed Ball and the red one. I fill both with sunflower seed. Yes, seed do fall out, but it's not a huge problem. The birds love it. I have seen as many as five birds at a time hanging on it. However, it is NOT squirrel-proof. At this moment, I am watching a squirrel hanging upside down from it. He must have rock-hard abs because he curls up to get another seed when he finishes the first seed. Someone mentioned a problem with squirrels removing the lid. I haven't had that problem, although it may occur when the lid gets loose from wear. My seed ball feeders have been in use for several months. I am really happy with my purchase.
Review RateAmazon Review, Bird Feeder!I just received this bird feeder today its ok there is a lil hole ontop of the lip that i hope does not leak we will have to see... I filled mine with black oil sunflower seeds it held the seed very well hardly no fallout the bird feeder it self was not as heavy duty as I thought but over all it is pretty nice (so far) and the birds seem to like it!
Review RateAmazon Review, Easy!Easy to fill and it is easy to open and close and hang. Squirrels like it too..hahah, but they like everything!!
Review RateAmazon Review, Love it and it looks cool too!Some people had trouble with squirrels taking the top off so I decided to tie wrap the lid on after I fill it. It is not squirrel proof they can hang on and they will stay until they get their fill. I put mine on a thin wire and they can't get to it.
Review RateAmazon Review, Wild Bird Feeder.Great product. Looks great in the back yard. Winters here are long and the birds need all the help they can get.
Review RateAmazon Review, Great Feeders!I love these feeders and so do the birds. I bought 4 and wish I had bought more of them.
Review RateAmazon Review, Good Addition to the Group!I bought this to give some variety to the other feeders hanging from the pole. Usually, birds have to check out a new feeder for a few days before they land on it. Not so with this ball. They were clinging to it right after I hung it and had walked about 20 feet away. I filled it with black sunflower seed and there is a bit of waste from seed falling to the ground but not a serious amount. It has been entertaining to watch birds cling instead of just sitting on a tray or a perch. The pole from which this ball hangs is squirrel proof so there is no problem with squirrels removing the lid and eating the contents. They cannot get to the ball but have to settle for the seed that falls to the ground. This is a nice feeder at a modest price.
Review RateAmazon Review, Finch Central!So I had a tube feeder and once the grackles and/or crows polished off the entire contents of said feeder in about a day and a half, I thought this is bs! Plus, I can't afford to buy that much bird food to keep the feeder full or even half full on a daily basis, so I purchased this item. Well let me tell ya, the finches love this thing! (as do a couple of other types of birds but I don't know what they are named) And cardinals gather underneath the feeder to catch what black oil sunflower seeds fall to the ground. The squirrels like this feeder too and have tried to get into it. I once went out in the morning and found the feeder on the ground, which I figured was due to a squirrel. Here's how I got around that. I have a shepherd's hook so I hung this feeder by the "handle" on the top. Look at the picture and the handle looks like an upside down goal post. Then I take the S hook which is on the end of the chain and loop it through the tiny ring which is attached to the lid. Then I thread the rest of the S hook through the "goal post" hole. (see in the photo where the "goal post" is attached to the top of the feeder) The squirrels can't get the lid off and so far, when they have jumped on the feeder or knocked it off, the top still stays secure. They only thing is this feeder is SO POPULAR now I'm kinda back where I started. This thing gets cleaned out in 3 days, 4 at the most. To keep refilling this small feeder with expensive black oil sunflower seed is something I can't afford.
Review RateAmazon Review, Very Happy.Cannot beat the price. I bought several of these in the green and red. The smaller birds especially love this feeder. Very happy....

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.
Thistle Seed is imported from Africa and Asia. Thistle won't germinate, however, it has 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: Perky-Pet® mesh feeders can be dish washed or hand washed. Before filling your feeders with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:
- Remove all old seed.
- Place the feeder on top rack of the dish washer.
- Allow the feeder to dry completely before refilling.
- Remove all old seed.
- Soak feeder in water.
- Gently cleanse feeder and allow to air dry.
After the feeder is clean and dry follow these steps
- 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!
