Review RateNice feeder since it's glass and not plasticI feel this feeder is not big enough. I have a lot of birds and this does not hold enough seed . If you made it with a screw top it would be easier to fill and hold more seed.
When you fill it and tip it over to screw the bottom feeder on, it's half full.
You could have more feed in it if you fill it from the top.
Review RateA few design flaws.
I wish I had kept my store receipt! This feeder is pretty, and I liked that it's glass. However, as others have noted, filling it is not the easiest. Have to wait for the base to be completely empty, or you dump a lot of seed on the ground. (Field day for the squirrels and chipmunks!) Really needs a cover, or rain gets in. The glass --- of course --- is freezing on the hands when the weather gets cold! The minute you fill it, it's half empty, because the seeds just pour into the base. Where they get wet. Using black oil sunflower seeds in it. Can't imagine using smaller seed. The one plus: ground-feeding birds (cardinals, juncos) are using it. But I'm going to buy another tube feeder like I used to have. (Paper wasps built nests in the one I had -- and left unprotected, never expecting nesting to happen-- and I couldn't get them out.)Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for this review! Because this feeder is made of glass, we do recommend bringing it inside during particularly inclement weather, to prevent the seed reservoir from breaking if the feeder were to fall. Birds like to feed in sunny areas that are protected from the wind, so careful placement should help prevent the seed from getting wet. For more tips, please feel free to contact us directly at 855-737-5973, we're happy to help!
Review RateMore of a question before buying
Hello, I have a question. I'm very interested in this Perky Pet Mason jar feeder. However... I do have one concern, that would be the metal base. What type of metal is this made out of? I had a Perky Pet glass hummingbird feeder that I had to discard after a year because of the rusty metal base! I'm concerned that this metal base will do the same thing and rust also. I'm hoping this metal base is made out of galvanized steel or stainless steel. Please let me know ASAP. Thanks.Response From Perky-Pet®Jules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi Tom! The base of this feeder is galvanized steel and it is powder coated for rust and weather resistance. If you have any other questions, we are more than happy to help at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
Review RateNice but
Birds love this feeder BUT mine broke because it fell.The threads to hold the glass to the base were not that great.The metal rails were very poorly welded and broke as well.To be fair the filling complaint is also valid.Why not put a hole in the top of the glass jar with a rubber plug to allow it to be filled properly?Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateBad concept
The feeder is very nice looking but unfortunately it get empty in minutes because the holes are too big. I tried many solution such as block some of the hole space with metal wire with some result but still not able to keep it lasting 1 day. Tried to get a refund with the store but was not able to.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateUnhappy Birds
I was so excited to buy this bird feeder because I love anything that is not plastic! Unfortunately, my chickadees and nuthatches did not love it. They began coming less and less to feed in my yard, until I barely noticed them anymore. I've gone back to the ratty old basket I used to have!Response From Perky-Pet®Elizabeth : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing your expierience with us. We are sorry to hear this. Birds are creatures of habit and it can take time for them to utilize a new food source. Removing established feeders can help them acclimate to your new feeder. Please contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
Review Ratemessiest feeder
This is the messiest feeder I have ever purchased from Perky-Pet. Feeding holes are so big that the deer come and lick through them feasting on the seed. The seed also spills out of these holes when you tune the full feeder right side up.
Review RateGreat Vintage FeederI received a Perky Pet Mason Jar Feeder for my birthday, and liked it so much that I purchased one or a friend. Great look to it, easy to fill, easy to clean, and the birds seem comfortable with it. The mason jar top is a light blue, very vintage looking, and is unlike the ordinary feeder. You'll be very happy with it, and will enjoy watching all the birds it attracts. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Review RateFits great under squirrel baffle.Bought one & works great. Ordered 2 more yesterday. Only problem is that when time to refil, you lose some seeds when you turn it over to fill.
Review RateNo replacement jar availableReceived this as a gift and the squirrels knocked it down shortly after it was hung outside. The jar broke at the threads and a regular Mason jar does not work. Need to have the edge around the top of the jar so the hanger doesn't slip off. You might as well buy a whole new feeder.Response From Perky-Pet®Kelly : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello,
Currently, we do not offer replacement parts for the Perky-Pet® Mason Jar Wild Bird Feeder (model# 784). Our Product Managers are always working to make more replacement parts available, which makes feedback such as this very valuable.
