Review RateAmazon ReviewThis is a well constructed, functional bird feeder. Better with certain seeds. It was a gift for my sister. She's pleased.
Review RateAmazon ReviewLove this product!! I have 2 of them. Recommend highly.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI love this feeder. It holds so much. I have seen a squirrel on it a couple of times but since it's all metal, they can't chew it and break it. I can look out and see several birds on this at almost any given time. With my old cage feeders with plastic inner tubes, if a squirrel was on it, the birds stayed away. Now I've seen up to 7 birds eating at the same time.I'm very happy with this one.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis feeder does prevent squirrels pretty well. For the first week I would see squirrels handing on to the feeder, trying to get seeds out. They must have been unsuccessful because its been 3 weeks and I haven't seen any more squirrels on it.Here is what I like:- Squirrels get frustrated and stop going to it- Large capacity means I only refill it every 3 to 4 weeks- Construction will easily last a life time.My only complaint is that it advertises that the feeder can hold sunflower seeds or a mix of sunflower/safflower seeds. I wouldn't put safflower seeds in this at all. It's way too easy for safflower seeds to fall out. As is, when you fill the feeder with sunflower seeds and lightly tap the feeder, a few seeds will come out here and there. The problem is worse with safflower seeds, even when you mix safflower with sunflower seeds.Over all I like this feeder and I would recommend it to anyone.
Review RateAmazon Review, Love this birdfeeder!This bird feeder has several good points. It hold lots of seeds and the squirrels cannot get to them & neither can they chew holes in the feeder - it is definitely "squirrel proof". It will last forever also.
Review RateGood feeder - Amazon ReviewI was looking for a bird feeder that would attract a variety of birds to entertain my son and my cat. At the same time I wanted the bird feeder to be durable and not to get gross after a rainfall. I settled for this one because of positive reviews, attractive look and implied solid construction. After looking around, I ended up buying it on Ebay for ~$18.After using the bird feeder for over four months, I still really like it. Despite the reviews, I was initially worried about attracting a variety of birds because this feeder only takes sunflower seeds. However, I have seen many different birds at the feeder, ranging from cardinals to some small yellow birds. Its easy to fill and because the bottom is sloped from the center out, the seeds slide outward and don't tend to accumulate in the feeder. I fill it about half way, and the seed is gone in about a week. And even after it rains, the remaining seeds still get cleaned out afterwards.Contrary to the name, squirrels have no problems getting the seeds out of the feeder and we've witnessed some squirrel fights over the pecking order. However, the squirrels really don't bother me - they need to eat too. If you don't want squirrels to eat your seed, just spray some hot sauce on the seeds/feeder or buy capsaicin-treated seeds. Mammals such as squirrels tend not to like capsaicin, which is the compound that makes chili peppers taste "hot." Birds, however, are not sensitive to capsaicin, so they won't care whether the seed has been treated with capsaicin or not.
