Review RateGreat, but light weight...I picked one of these up at Home Depot. It's been up for three weeks, and the cardinals, mockingbirds and chickadees love it. I keep it filled with sunflower seeds, but I've noticed a problem. When the seed level gets low, the bird's weight becomes significant. The feeder tips dumping the remaining seeds. I solved the problem by attaching a chunk of metal to the bottom of the feeder to serve as ballast. I wish Perky-Pet would incorporate this feature. I don't think it would add much to the cost of the unit.
Review RateHome Depot Review, Best Bird Feeder everI have bought alot of bird feeders and this is by far the best one that I have every bought. I have never bought one of the electrical feeders that spin the squirrels right off, but I have bought more than one squirrel proof bird feeder that did not last long. This one will feed the squirrels, but they need food too. They just have to work at it more than many of the other bird feeders that all they have to do is push the top up. This one the top is fixed on and they have to eat them one at a time. My big problem with this feeder is that the racoons like to remove this feeder from the stand. I recently lost one and found it later hidden in some shrubs where the racoons thought the feeder would re-fill itself on its own. This feeder is so inexpensive, that I did not mind replacing it once per year.
Review RateHome Depot Review, Great product at a good priceThis bird feeder does the job and requires no maint. & will clean easy if needed.
Review RateHome Depot Review, great bird feederIt's less than six bucks. so if you decide bird feeding isn't for you no big loss. the first day i set it up was windy and it fell to the floor, no cracks good as new, within one hour of placing seeds and setting up a cardinal and other birds were eating. It's small so you don't have to waste your ten pound bag of bird seeds in one try, all in all it's a great way to get started in bird feeding.
Review RateHome Depot Review, Simple, attractive, inexpensive feederLightweight so you can use it on smaller branches -- like on that Rose of Sharon outside the kitchen. A bit cumbersome to remove the lid while holding a scoop of sunflower seeds (the lid is held by tabs that twist together) but all in all a nice feeder.
