Nice looking feeder, attractive cedar and design. Adam, the customer service rep I talked to, was very courteous, professional and responsive in answering my questions. Good job, Adam. This seems like a really good company to buy from.
Review RateWILD LODGE FEEDER BEAUTYI WENT SHOPPING FOR A NEW FEEDER ANS FOUND NOTHING THAT CAME CLOSE TO MY CURRENT ONE OF SIX YEARS. I WENT ONLINE AND LO AND BEHOLD THERE WAS MY FEEDER AND MADE QUITE RUGGEDLY AND IN CEDAR. THE PRICE WAS A THIRD FROM WHAT I HAD LOOKED AT. I PUT A NEW PLATFORM OUT AND ANCHORED THE NEW FEEDER TO IT AND SET IT UP. AT FIRST THE BIRDS STAYED AWAY FROM IT. EITHER THE NEW LOOK OR A CEDAR SMELL DIFFERENT FROM THE OLD ONE, BUT WHEN IT HIT ZERO AT NIGHT AND SNOWED THEY FLEW TO IT IN THE MORNING AND
HAVE BEEN EATING BUSILY FROM IT SINCE. WE HAVE BLUEJAYS, WRENS, CARDINALS, DOVES, WOOD DIGGERS, GRACKLES, SNOWBIRDS, SPARROWS, FINCHES, BLACK BIRDS ETC. NOW IT IS A BUSY FEEDER.
Review RateJust what I expected.Very happy with the birdfeeder and with the service I received.
Review RateAs Advertised-Great Value!It arrived advertised and was a great value. It is wood and should last about 2 summers (2 years) of heavy use. But, as said, it was very, very, very reasonable and the use and construction is expected to parallel the cost.
Review RateSuper Bird feeder !!I recently purchase a cedar lodge wild bird feeder and to my dismay, it arrived damaged. I notified Perky-pet and UPS and was promptly notified that a new one would be on its way - it arrived a couple of days later and I am so happy with it! Also the service from Perky-pet could not have been better or faster - I will be ordering from them again!!!
Review RateBest purchase ever!I have never had so much fun watching the constant show going on at my new bird feeder. Total quality product. Perfect design. Holds 2 suets. All cedar. Thank you!
Review RateExactly what I was looking for.It works so well that I wish it were bigger!
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis is the second one of these we have in our front yard. This one sits on a pole about five feet high outside our window close to the house. The feed stays dry when it rains. This is great and has attracted a large variety of birds. I will be buying another one in the near future. We have many bird visitors all day and they eat a lot. We have some of the fattest doves around. With the 8lb. capacity, we fill the feeders about once a week.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comA great feeder with only a slight annoyance. The way the lid/top is installed, you pretty much have to take the feeder down from the hanger in order to fill it. The smaller units with only one rope attachment allows the lid to be lifted up while it is still hanging whereas the weight of this feeder makes this kind of difficult. Not huge deal, just a picky observation.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis an awesome bird-feeder. Made out of cedar wood and has a large capacity for bird-feed.The suet holder on both ends of the feeder are a big plus. I was so impressed that I bought two of them. The birds just love eating the bird-feed and suet.
