Review RateLOVE this feeder!This is an extremely good quality feeder! It holds 4 pounds of seed, and doesn't require daily filling like my smaller feeders. The birds seem to love these perches too! Think I'm going to buy another one!
Review RateSquirrel proof so farWe bought this for our granddaughter to instill in her a love for birds at an early age!!! She is a whole 3 months old today:) As her Mumsy and PaPa we have enjoyed seeing birds discover this new source of food. The squirrels have not found a way to invade the feeder. We are even wondering if this feeder might be a better choice for our own home... this feeder doesn't seem to allow for big amounts of feed to fall out and in some ways results in wasting a fair amount of seeds. Time will tell. Thank you for helping us enjoy nature.
Review RateBird and human approvedThe birds like and use this feeder, from sparrows all the way up to Cardinals. I like that the bird posts are all metal It is attractive to look at, but a little messy to fill. There is only one chamber, so once the seed drops below the top openings not as many birds can feed. I think it is a good value and will last a long time.
Review RateGreat Quality / Fast ShippingI bought 2 feeders for gifts. They arrived very fast and I wish I had ordered a couple for myself!
Review RateA top quality item!!I am very impressed with the quality of this feeder!!!! I am definitely glad I ordered two!!
Review RateReview Posted on HomeDepot.comI bought the feeder because it said squirrels couldn't get into it, but they still do, however, they haven't destroyed the feeder like they have others, so at least it's nice and sturdy.
Review Ratesquirrel feederThe sure-lock cap system is the fastest way to guarantee all of your birdseed will be spilled on the ground and eaten by squirrels in a matter of hours. Seriously doubt the designer has ever seen a squirrel in real life. Maybe a picture of a squirrel taped to the side would be thwarted but that is about it.
Review RateReview Posted on HomeDepot.comSturdy, holds lots of seed, squirrels haven't figured this one out yet ... 8 perches for feeding holes - attractive, clean lines.Easy to full up with cord slide to remove lid - closes tightly, prevents loss of seed.
