Review RateDifficult to cleanI thought this was a good deal for the price, but the squirrels were able to pull off the seed bands and pull them off to get at the seed. And you cannot leave them out in the rain because the seed gets moldy and it is very, very difficult to clean out. SAVE YOU MONEY AND SPEND A LITTLE MORE TO GET METAL AND EASY CLEAN FEEDERS.
Review RateAmazon Review, Multiple uses makes it a great productWhen you get a product that states it's usage and then actually delivers on its statement, it's a no brainer.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI didn't want to pay a lot of money just to feed the birds, but I am satisfied by this item. The foot stands for the birds seem a bit flimsy but I doubt they mind much. Easy to hang and easy to refill. 5 Stars.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comFor the money, this is a great bird feeder. It has a sleek look and it has plenty of spots for birds to perch. It sways quite a bit in the wind and the birds are able to knock seed out of it, but otherwise, we are still pleased with the purchase.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI just got it today and immediately hung it up. I love how you can adjust the perches to whatever size. It holds quite a bit of seed and even though its plastic i feel like its pretty sturdy. The only thing I didn't like is that tap of the bird feeder just slides up and down. Its not really secure. But its been working out so far today. The sparrows and finches LOVE it!! It drops very little seed and the fact that the birds just took to it so fast is amazing! Love it and I would definitely purchase this again.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis feeder for some reason seems to attract more birds than my other 2 feeders hanging at the same location. Great price too!! Easy to fill.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI like these feeders because they look good for platic feeders, the birds like them, they're easy to clean with a hose sprayer and they're plenty durable for the price. After 18 months or so when they start to look too worn you can throw them out without guilt that you didn't get your moneys worth. They do hold up to being chewed on by the squirrels but if they fall any distance, pieces will break and fall off. They work fine (if not better) without the port covers but the perches will become too loose after a couple of re-attachments.
Review RateAmazon Review, Just what she wantedGift selected by my daughter. She seemed delighted. Quick delivery after order. Arrived in good condition.
Review RateAmazon Review, Nice feederI think the perches need to be extended completely for the little birds to be most comfortable, but other than that, it is working well. I especially like how the perches are staggered, so more than one bird can feed simultaneously.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI bought 2 of these to go on the sides of an arbor; one is filled with thistle and the other with sunflower seeds. The thistle one works perfectly. The sunflower seed's perches are constantly being closed by squirrels. I have tried to hold the perches open, but so far have not found the correct solution (my next try will be duct tape). Chickadees don't seem to mind the closed feeder and are able to perch without them. Still, the feeders are inexpensive, look nice, and are easy to fill. If there was a locking mechanism on the perch I would have given this 5 stars.
