Review RatestrudyBought not long ago and placed it in our yard almost immediately. What I first noticed was the construction of the feeder. Is extremely sturdy and appears as if it will outlast me. It looks great in the yard. Our weather has cooled quite a bit and the birds seem to love it. The perches allow the birds to face directly into the feeder or sit to the side and turn their heads to eat. Have purchased 2 now.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe Perky-Pet Premium Heavy-Duty Bird Feeder is just that. It's weather resistant, squirrel proof with rotating ports. Good for sunflower seed, mixed seeds, and thistle seed. Stainless Steel hanger, solid construction.U-shaped offset perches. Instructions suggest a cleaning every two weeks. (Does anyone really do that?) Website for more information www.perkypet.com
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe best reason to appreciate this feeder is that the birds like it! I hung it up and had birds using it within half an hour. So far, it's been largely chickadees and junkos and none of those stupid and loud magpies! I think the perches may be too small for magpies. Magpies have dominated every other bird feeder I've tried. It's nice to see the little guys have a chance.The feeder was a bit hard to fill, and at first I spilled seeds everywhere. Slowing down and pouring a smaller stream of birdseed solved that problem though I suppose a funnel would have done the same thing in less time. Now that it is full and hanging, the only thing getting seeds out is the birds. We had a good coastal wind yesterday evening, and I watched specifically to see the feeder's response. The feeder did quite a bit of dancing, but a negligible amount of seeds fell out.I like that this feeder is covered. I haven't seen it deal with rain yet, but I think it will handle that well as the main chamber has a tight lid and the perches have tiny covers. I'll come back and update after a rainstorm.At first, I wasn't too crazy about the appearance of this bird feeder. But, upon hanging it up and watching birds flock to it, I've changed my mind. The simple design puts the focus on the birds and doesn't get caught in tree branches the way that some of my fancier bird feeders have.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe direction I have decided to take with this review is a little bit different. I agree with the other reviewers that this is a sturdy, tough, easy to maintain bird feeder. But I would like to present this review from a little bit different perspective. If you recently have moved into a new house or a new apartment with space for something like a bird feeder much like the Perky-Pet featured here I would highly recommend that you go ahead and pick up something like this. This is a new experience for me, but it really is so enjoyable to look out the window and see the birds come in to eat for their dinner. I know this might come across as kind of archaic, or out of touch but as I have been using this bird feeder certain birds are kind of becoming my friends. I will often tell my wife, "Look that old robin is back" or "look honey, a blue billed raspy throat." (I don't really know any other bird types. I am just starting here.) It is very pleasant to end your day with quite reflection at the window feeling companionship with a fine feathered friend. This is something new for me and I think you would really enjoy feeding the birds as well. Pick up a bird feeder and find some new friends.
Review RateAmazon ReviewLoses one star because I couldn't figure out why they want you to fill it from the bottom. The top removes easily . The bottom was a struggle and the top kept falling off as I tried to open the bottom. That said it's well constructed, solid and sturdy. The birds appear to like it . The squirrels appear frustrated, which is a good thing. Recommended!
Review RateAmazon ReviewIt's big, holds plenty of seed - if you fill it completely it will last you about a week depending on how many birds you get. It's sturdy and looks good. The U-shaped perches are perfect for the birds. Since putting this up I have seen an increase in the number and variety of birds visiting my yard.
Review RateAmazon ReviewWow! All I can say is that I'm really impressed with this high quality bird feeder from Perky Pet. It is sturdy and solidly built, and definitely lives up to its heavy-duty tag. I used to have a regular, inexpensive bird feeder hanging outside my breakfast nook, and it only had a few perch sticks that could only accommodate the smallest birds. With this Perky Pet Heavy-Duty Bird Feeder, I have been able to attract a greater variety of birds. I placed safflower seeds in the feeder and both a male and female cardinal have been visiting it. I have also observed brightly colored finches come by. It is such a joy to watch these birds. The U-shaped perches are unique and conveniently accommodate the birds, while allowing me to observe the birds in all their beauty. This bird feeder comes with a lifetime warranty, and I look forward to using it for many more years.
Review RateAmazon ReviewLiving in Hawaii, we have a good population of beautiful birds. Therefore, I wanted to check out a really high quality bird feeder to attract them for us (and our kitty) to watch. This feeder is very well made, holds a LOT of feed, and is still attractive.
