Review RateBirds love itOver the past year I tried two different feeders from my local bird store, after my favorite feeder rusted. I couldn’t attract more than one or two finches. This feeder looked the closest to what I had in the past, so I gave it a try. Within one hour, I attracted two finches. Two weeks later I have steady visitors. The baffle system is an improvement over my old favorite. I have a new favorite.
Review RateWould buy again
My birds are very, very HAPPY with the new feeder. Love the yellow color and the tray at the bottom to catch seed helps keep the ground clean
Review RateGreat feeder
Bought this feeder at Home Depot ($19.99) and on the 2nd day we had multiple gold finches. The feeder also attracted some house finches, chickadees, and a woodpecker. The birds seem to like it, and the tray at the bottom is nice for the extra seed that falls. The only thing is the hook hole is a little troublesome, but otherwise great durable feeder.
Review RateMOST POPULAR FINCH FEEDER IN MY YARD!
The most popular finch feeder in my yard. Took a very long time for them to take to it, but once they did, it's very popular with all the Nyjer eaters. I like the threaded fitting on the bottom. I attached a large clear tray to better keep the mess off the ground and allow the Morning Doves to get their share of the dropped seed. Hole size is good, the birds can remove seed easily, but due to so many holes, some seed falls out, especially when windy. I use a large baffle above to better protect it from the weather. Mesh has faded to gray after a few months. Easy to disassemble, clean and fill. I wrap a piece of doubled cling wrap (that I reuse) around the tube before filling, so less spills out and remove it after hanging. Great finch feeder!
