Perky-Pet® Premium 23 Inch Heavy-Duty Bird Feeder with Midnight Black Finish

Bird Watching at its Best

Built to last, this nearly indestructible Perky-Pet® Premium 23 Inch Heavy-Duty Bird Feeder with Midnight Black Finish provides years of bird-watching enjoyment. It's designed and constructed to withstand the toughest elements. The weather-resistant feeder's transparent polycarbonate seed tube is strong and contains a UV inhibitor to prevent yellowing, while its powder-coated die-cast zinc ports, cap, and base offer protection against squirrel damage.

This Premium feeder with Perky-Pet® Lifetime Limited Warranty comes equipped with four patented rotating ports that can be easily turned and set to dispense either thistle seed or mixed seed. Even more, each port provides an offset, bird-preferred, U-shaped perch, which allows birds to dine comfortably and encourages return visits. Best of all, it offers a 360-degree view, so you can delight in watching your bird visitors from any angle. This Premium feeder attracts chickadees, finches, juncos, kinglets, and nuthatches to redpolls, siskins, sparrows, titmice, woodpeckers, and wrens.

Easy to Fill and Use

This Premium 23-inch heavy-duty bird feeder holds up to 1.8 pounds of black oil sunflower seed, peanut chunks, thistle seed, safflower, or mixed seed. Once filled, hang the feeder then watch as a variety of feathered friends fly in to feast from 6 feeding ports.

Suggested Placement

Fitted with a sturdy stainless-steel hanging wire, this feeder can be securely hung near a back deck, porch, patio, or in your yard. It can also be pole mounted. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.

Cleaning the Feeder

Keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed or feed to ensure return visits. Perky-Pet® recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it at least every two weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

Elegant Design

This Perky-Pet® Premium heavy-duty bird feeder offers sleek, sophisticated elegance and comes in a variety of stylish finishes, including Antique Copper, Midnight Black, and Hunter Green. A thoughtful gift idea for the bird lover on your list, the Premium feeder makes a charming addition to any garden, backyard or patio.

Hate it ! By Dave

The perches are to small for Blue birds to use. They had to keep flapping their wings ( hover ) to get peanut pieces from it. Hate this feeder ! I will have to buy another one to use as my winter feeder for the Blue birds and other winter visitors. I will have save it for the finches, when their one feeder gets old . ( they have their feeders on another pole ) The openings seemed real small on this feeder too. Like the birds had a hard time getting seeds out of it.

Response From Perky-Pet®

My back yard belongs to my dogs, but my front yard belongs to me, and I have several gardens and feeders there; this is by far the best feeder I have. It's solid, easy to manage, attractive, and very versatile- because the feeder holes are adjustable.THE GOOD:+ Solid and heavy... although it's summer now I imagine that it will withstand bad weather+ SIX feeding ports with perches, so I often have more than one guest hanging out at a time, which I love+ Ports are adjustable - they rotate so you can control size of the hole (and therefore tailor it to your preferred seed)+ Clear tube so you can see your feed level easily+ Looks nice in the front garden+ Handle is also solid-feeling; manages the weight of naughty squirrels who hang on+ Easy to manage: comes assembled, easy to understand the rotating ports, easy to fill if you've ever filled a tube feeder before (ie use a funnel!).BE AWARE:- No squirrel baffleBOTTOM LINE: A quality feeder, should serve your winged guests well for a long time

The Perky-Pet 102b Premium Tube Feeder is a large, sturdy feeder that is fairly heavy. The length (23 inches) and weight makes it challenging to place if, like me, you live in a house with scrubby Georgia pines as the primary yard tree. The single deciduous tree in my yard, a rather scrawny maple, has few branches substantial enough to support the feeder, and those limbs are at the lower portion of the trunk.Even though it hangs about three feet off the ground, the birds (or squirrels, hard to tell) have been visiting, as about half a pound of seed is gone. They must be visiting in the early morning, or evening as I have not seen many birds at the feeder, and I am early to bed to get to work by 5 am.The feeder was easy to fill, and the size of the tube makes it simple for even the less-than-dextrous to get the seed in the feeder. Opening and closing the feeder was easy, and the swivel ports are an interesting concept.In all, I am satisfied with this feeder, as it seems to do the job-feed birds and possibly squirrels.

The 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.

Make no mistake, this is a huge feederRequires modest assemblyAt close to 2 feet long, it will hold a lot of seedComes emptySquirrels can and likely will eat from itIt's supposed to survive the wrath of squirrels, but time will tellThus far it hasn't let me down, and the birds immediately took to it. I'm not 100% sure of its long term survival, as it doesn't feel indestructible, but for now it's as good as new. I'll update this review as needed.

The 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.

We own several Perky-Pet feeders. They're very well made and tend to last years. This feeder is no exception. Many times, other brand of feeders tend to be cheaply made and are very light weight. This might not seem like a big issue, but when a lightweight feeder gets low on seed, they tend to blow around madly. This feeder feels quite substantial, since it has metal top and bottom caps. The Perky-Pet 102B is just under two feet long and has multiple feeding stations that can be set to accommodate different feeding styles. We prefer to rotate the feeding stations on the top to the small opening and the lower stations to the larger openings. That way, the birds tend to compete less. It's so cool seeing woodpeckers, cardinals and others enjoying a nice meal without having to compete so much. The top and bottom caps are made of metal and the top is held in place very securely, but opens easily for filling and cleaning. We usually clean ours as recommended, which is every two weeks. Like most feeders, squirrels won't have an issue getting into the stations with the large openings, but the feeder is made from stout materials, so they're unlikely to cause any damage. I usually see them hovering on the ground below instead of on the feeder itself since we make it as difficult as possible to get on the feeder itself.

Loses 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!

It'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.

Q.Can you explain how the bottom comes off for cleaning? I can't just pull or twist it off and I worry that using a knife or screwdriver to release the tabs will break the tube. (While you emphasize the importance of cleaning, I can't find instructions.)

To remove the base, we recommend to first take off the bottom two seed ports. To do so, press up on the perch until it pops out. When the ports have been removed, turn the base clockwise until it loosens and can be pulled out. There is a small notch on the base that needs to clear a U-shaped cutout in the clear plastic before it will loosen.
