It's got its own little hook that fits snugly on a tree branch & it hangs down a little chain just enough so that birds can easily stick their beak in to pull out seeds, but squirrels can't hang on to steal food. The lid snaps off so you can easily fill it up. I have red shutters on my house, so this pretty bird feeder matches nicely. I like the simple design.

Living in Georgia, brings many different types of beautiful birds in the winter when they need feeding the most. I do however feed all year long, and was planning on using this feeder in the yard because it's pretty darned squirrel proof (and THAT I love). My only issues with it are the tiny holes in the screening type seed dispenser. I can't use it for Finches, that eat Thistle Seed. While the holes are too big for the smaller thistle seeds, I did manage to get cracked sunflower seed into the ball. Whole sunflower will definitely not work, but the shelled and cracked seed work fairly well, and the larger pieces that might be left in the feeder can always be placed onto the ground for cardinals and mourning doves to munch up, as they love picking from the ground. I'm thinking that I might also be able to TRY safflower seeds, but must wait for the winter when we get more cardinals and need to push away the Grackles (they don't like safflower seed, but can empty a feeder of seed in a day when it's filled with yummy stuff like sunflower. Many less expensive feeds have white millet seeds that would totally work, but we don't like feeding them millet, as it isn't as good for the songbirds as higher quality seed mixes are - especially in the winter, when the birds really need extra feed because the frozen ground, and cold temps can vastly limit their food sources. My last sentence brings me to mention that the piggy Grackles cannot get the seed out of this round ball feeder! This is GREAT news for us, because they can hang on a regular feeder if the foot perches are big enough and literally plow the seed out of the feeder with their beaks, while looking for sunflower and peanuts - they are wasteful birds and can up the cost of feeding the sweet little songbirds.So, having this round ball stuffed with already cracked and shelled sunflower may attract the grackles, but they won't get out a single seed! Win Win for sure!!! The feeder certainly does have a useful dispense method and the top cap pops into the center and holds nice and tight. I'm even thinking that if the little 'springs' that are attached to the lid to lock it in place, become pushed in from use, that a GENTLE pry, to push them back out slightly, will keep the top on firmly for a very long time --- but this is only if the springs ever become pushed in -- they may never yield to the daily filling of the feeder, and having the top pulled off for filling. It is made extremely well and it's incredibly cute to be honest. If the side holes were just a teeny bit bigger, I'd totally give it 4 or 5 stars. I'm needing to buy a different feed for this one, and that is okay, it's just another step that I had not planned on. Perhaps as I look into it more, there are other healthy seeds to place in the feeder. I know that I will be exploring all options, because it's cute, and it keeps the grackles at bay!!!

My first thought was too small and what birds are going to use this!! WE now have 3 of them. Woodpeckers use them and even though the other person said Cardinal do no like it, well we must have strange birds because we can not think of a bird that has NOT used it. We Love them going to by more, lots more!!Date published: 2016-02-25Rated 1 out of 5 by Philly from Worked well for a little while I bought several of these, and at first all was well, then the squirrels figured out how to pull the tops off!Date published: 2016-02-25Rated 4 out of 5 by WiseGal from For clinging birds only The product is fine; I just wasn't thinking when I ordered it that I have more cardinals than other birds. It took a while for any bird to come to the two feeders I hung filled with black oil sunflower seeds, and it is the chickadees and tufted titmouses that I see there mostly. Without a perching bar, the cardinals will not use it even though I know they love black oil sunflower seeds. Just something to keep in mind when ordering these wire mesh balls with no perch for larger birds that do not cling.Date published: 2015-12-06Rated 4 out of 5 by birdlady from nice small feeder Too small for my yard but cute and attracts clinging birds to feed. I had to fill it daily and now the lid is missing...........not critter proof.Date published: 2014-12-11

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What are the most popular bird seeds to use?
A: Black Oil Sunflower Seed is the most popular bird seed. It is much smaller than the traditional sunflower seed and best for those birds with smaller bills, such as the sparrow, junco and goldfinch. This seed is accepted by the greatest variety of birds.
Mixed Seed is also popular. It is best to buy the mixes that contain white proso millet, a tiny cream colored seed with a shiny shell. Mixes containing finely cracked corn and black oil sunflower are also preferred by a large number of birds.
Thistle Seed is imported from Africa and Asia. Thistle won't germinate, however, it has a tendency to become moldy due to lack of air circulation. If you notice mold on the seed, it must be removed from the feeder and the feeder must be cleaned thoroughly.
Q: How do I clean my bird feeders?
A: No/No feeders can be dish washed or hand washed. Before filling your feeders with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:
- Remove all old seed.
- Place the feeder on top rack of the dish washer.
- Allow the feeder to dry completely before refilling.
- Remove all old seed.
- Soak feeder in a light water/bleach solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach).
- Gently cleanse feeder and allow to air dry.
After the feeder is clean and dry follow these steps
- Rake and remove accumulated hulls and droppings from underneath the feeders.
- Spread mulch (bark or wood) under the feeder, replace mulch when soiled.
- Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.
Q: What is the importance of providing water for wild birds?
A: Wild birds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need seed. Birds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also for bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide birds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for birds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy. By adding a water source, you also can attract a larger variety of birds to your yard. You may even attract more colorful birds that don't eat seed, but are in need of water!
