Review RateBest Thistle Feeder
I have always loved watching birds eating outside my window, so I was given this No/No bird feeder (as well as one other) this past Christmas and the birds and I absolutely LOVE it (especially the birds)! One of my favorite things about this bird feeder is that it is made of metal. You can't hardly find any good quality metal bird feeders anymore without it containing plastic and/or wood parts. This bird feeder has attracted a lot more of male House Finches and female American Goldfinches but some other birds enjoy it, too. The yellow color of this bird feeder is a pretty bonus as well. The birds are able to eat the Thistle/Nyjer seed through the metal mesh or from the bird feeder tray without any problems. The fact that this bird feeder allows birds to eat through the wire mesh prevents less overcrowding because there is more room to feed than just from the tray. Filling up this bird feeder is pretty easy... just twist the top lid off of the bird feeder and fill the feeder up. When you get done just put the lid back on and give it a little twist to make sure it is secure. I found it easier to fill up the bird by using a funnel or a cup because the opening of the bird feeder is kind of small which makes it more difficult to fill up the bird feeder without seeds falling to the ground. I hope to have this feeder for many years!
Review RateWell made & durable.
Love this feeder! Even more that I paid 1/2 of the asking price here. It's sturdy, easy to fill & the squirrels don't bother with it at all. Win/Win.
Review RateLOVE this feeder!This is a very well built feeder. I love that it has some "air" between the sections to help dry the feed when it rains. We've had an increase in our beautiful yellow finches who clearly appreciate the feeder as well.
Review RatePoorly Attached Ring - Otherwise GreatI’ve been feeding backyard birds for over 25 years and must say that with proper care, the No-No Model YSSF00346 all metal Finch Feeder is amazing. I’ve had my feeder for about 3 months and from day one it’s hosted anywhere from 5-8 goldfinches simultaneously throughout the day. They’re on it all the time and it’s a real hoot to watch them fight for a spot at the “table.” They empty the feeder in about 3 days, so plan on spending some bucks on nyger seed. The removable bottom tray makes emptying & cleaning the feeder a snap and the innovative, cone-shaped inserts keep seed evenly distributed top to bottom.
I have only one, major gripe in that the hanging ring is very poorly spot-welded to the top (roof). The ring snapped right off my first feeder when I grasped the hanging ring to rotate (unscrew) and remove the top to fill it. I exchanged it for a replacement, but since it seems logical to use the hanging ring in this manner, it should be more securely attached to the top. Alternatively, users should be warned against grasping the ring to unscrew & remove the top and instead grasp it by the edge.
Aside from the design/quality issue, I highly recommend this feeder to anyone who enjoys birds (and can afford to buy a LOT of nyger seed).
Review RateSquirrels stymiedMy squirrels had learned to make a hole in the plastic finch feeders the day after I put them up. This is not what I ordered and I thought the squirrels might be able to shake the seed out but they don't and they can't get at the seed directly so they leave it alone, And there are 8 goldfinches there every weekend, one filling ;last almost a week. So thank you its just what I needed.
Review RateLooks good, the finches love it.Purchased a month ago. Birds keep coming back for more. Nice trickle down funnel system to evenly distribute seed.
Review RateAmazon ReviewEasy to fill and birds love it. Less fighting for position. Great design.
Review RateGreat feederThis is a great feeder except for the tray, which really needs to be mesh so water can drain more quickly keeping the seed in the bottom of the tube dry. That said, mine has survive two bear attacks very well.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI love it because it is well made and I love the yellow. It's metal, not plastic. The birds love it. It looks nice hanging in the tree.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe No/No Yellow Straight Sided Finch Feeder is the best Finch feeder I have ever used (and I have tried them all over the past 2 decades). It is spectacularly successful with the song birds, Cardinals, Mourning Doves, Chickadees, Goldfinches, House Finches, Downey Woodpeckers and more. It is SO very easy to use, to fill, to clean and to take apart. There are only 3 pieces to it. Seed dries quickly after rain. The internal structure with the inverted funnel style at 3 levels keeps the birds eating up and down the tube as the overall seed level goes down. Cardinals, who don't go to any of my other feeders, sit on this one and eat. I don't worry about Squirrels and larger birds because they can visit the feeder and even take some seed but they can't hog the seed or the feeder space and they cannot destroy it so I don't need to invest in baffles and deterrents. The No/No feeder is solidly held up by a ring securely attached to the top lid and is very easy to hang on my feeder pole hooks. The Feeder has not fallen off the support once, even with the Squirrels rocking it. This is the simplest and most user friendly feeder that I've ever used and I consistently have song birds all up and down it all day long. Delightful.
