Review RatePerfect sunflower feeder for small songbirds.This is a perfect tube feeder for sunflower seed. Both Goldfinches and House Finches have loved it from the first day I put it out. The round platform provides them ample room to perch and it is easy for them to cling to the sides, as well. The metal mesh is perfectly sized for Black oil sunflower seed. They do not fall out and yet are easily removed by feeding birds. Because it's open, it is very easy to rinse off after a rain and refill. It is lightweight and yet very durable and as a bonus is a very pretty, light purple color. Truly, a perfect feeder!
Review RateMOST POPULAR FEEDER IN MY YARD!
The most popular feeder used by the largest variety of birds in my yard. Holes in mesh are just the right size and shape for black oil sunflower seeds, keeps them in well, but easy for birds to remove. Better than other feeders I have. "Sassy" squirrel gets some seed, but hasn't destroyed feeder and usually decides it's too much work for the effort. I like the fact that there is a threaded fitting on the bottom. I attached a large clear seed tray to keep more of the mess off the ground (Cardinals like tray too) and use a large baffle above to shield feeder more from the weather. Easy to disassemble, clean and fill. The black mesh has faded to gray after a few months, but other than that, it's great!
