VIP Dining For Goldfinches
Darling and acrobatic, goldfinches have no problem feeding while perched upside down. This long, tube-shaped feeder caters to that unique ability, by providing upside down feeding stations with the perches positioned above, rather than below, each feeding port. With a feeding station all their own, goldfinches can leisurely dine without being bothered by other birds.
Six Upside-Down Feeding Stations
Birds won’t be able to resist flocking to the Perky-Pet® Upside Down® Thistle Feeder! It features six feeding ports evenly spaced around the tube so multiple birds can dine at the same time and you can enjoy a better view. Plus, each seed port is paired with a comfortable perch.
Never Run Out of Seed
The Perky-Pet® Upside Down® Feeder is able to hold up to 2 pounds of thistle seed or finch mix so there’s plenty for your hungry backyard goldfinches. The clear plastic reservoir allows you to easily monitor seed levels at a glance. When it's time to refill, simply slide the cap up along the hanging bail to access the feeder tube.

When I first put up this feeder, for weeks, I thought I had wasted my money. None of the finches could figure out where the feeding hole was. I also had the standard feeder up, but I was going through 2 lbs. of nyjer seeds every day and most were on the ground! I finally stopped putting seeds in the standard feeder and so their only option was this feeder. Within 2 weeks they started to figure out how to eat. Some still can't and some of the bigger finches can't. I add about 1 lb. every week now instead of every day. I have no waste on the ground. Also, with the standard feeder, the rats would visit it every night; not with the upside down feeder.
I bought 3 of these. Gave my Mom 1 and I put 2 out. Finches will NOT use them....
What happened to this feeder, but with the birds eating in an up-right position? My finches LOVED that style.
What I liked about this feeder design is that there is a port at the very bottom, so ALL seed is eaten, and none is left to rot like with other styles of feeders.
Upside down feeders are great. I had goldfinch within 24 hours. Gave another one to my neighbor who just recently began feeding birds. We have both been entertained by the antics of the finches & finding pleasure in watching the color changes of the males. Thank you for such a great feeder (and conversation piece for visitors).
While it is an economical a d efficient way to feed only finches, it could use one improvement. It should have a canopy. This would reduce the seeds thst get wet spoiled from the rain. If it was built better, I would pay the extra money for it.
I've had this for years...actually several over the years. I get this to last for two to three years with careful handling. The gold finches swarm to it. They love it and since it is an upside down feeder the other birds don't steal the food. Gold finches are fun to watch. I recommend this.
I hate it! It's impossible to fill through that stupid vee shaped piece that's supposed be so easy to remove. What a waste of money. Don't bother to call Perky Pet, I've been waiting for " 1 minute " for fifteen minutes now. I would like to see a video that shows how easy it is to remove that part.
I love this. Much better than the mesh bag that the squirrels ran off with. I did make the holes a little bigger because the seed seems to last forever. I bought the one with a metal cap as well and am only going to fill it half way and maybe put something yellow in the void to attract attention of the little birds.
