Review RatePoor designThis bird feeder looks good and is sturdy, unfortunately it doesn't hold the seed very well. As the birds eat, most of the seed drops out onto the ground. You might as well just throw the food on the ground yourself and forget this bird feeder
Review RateSolid construction...I had Perky Pet steel feeders for 20 years! The insides were starting to rust, so I replaced them with these new ones. I know these will hold up for a long, long time. I think my birds have little smiles on their beaks!
Review RatePerky-Pet Seed Bunker Wild Bird FeederLove the feeder this is the 5th one I've purchased in the last couple of years....my birds and squirrels are very busy eaters! The only drawback to the feeder is that the perches are not stationary and I have to wire them to the tube because they get loose after awhile. That would be the only change I would like to see.
Review RateFillingCan someone please tell me how to fill this feeder? Do you pop the bottom off and fill it? We tried this and wasted a bunch of seeds.Thanks,
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis feeder is designed to attract birds while keeping the squirrels away and so far, it succeeds. It's not the sturdiest feeder, with a rather cheap plastic window to monitor the seed level, but under a shaded tree, it should likely last for some time. Multiple finches come to feed daily, using the small perch and even the hood above to stand on the feeder. Recommended.
Review RateAmazon ReviewWe feed the birds year around from multiple feeders and this one is the bomb. I don't think you will find a heavier-made feeder than this one. We no longer use cheap-made feeders because the squirrels and raccoons just demolish them in a short time -- there is no way to eliminate that problem so we just buy quality feeders and live with the issue. Not a lot of birds can feed on this unit at one time but I still like it a lot as I have multiple feeders and no one starves at my house. Highly recommended.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI own several Perky Pet brand feeders and have enjoyed every one I have purchased. This one is made of metal that the birds can ACTUALLY perch on as the perches are nice and long. However, make sure that they are in place and tight before installing as I lost one (then found). I use mostly chicken scratch grains and cracked corn. This is a sturdy and very well-built bird feeder as is all of the Perky Pet brands. Happy Feeding!
Review RateAmazon ReviewWe've been using this bird feeder for a few weeks. It works well enough. The birds spill some seed but no more than is usual. The gravity feed system seems to work well and has not clogged. However, we are using a small seed mix. If you were using "all sunflower seeds" then I don't think it would clog and not drop. We've had no problem with squirrels even though we have a lot of them. The window is a piece of plastic but seems good enough for the job. The metal construction is sturdy. The color scheme is unobtrusive. A couple points to mention: 1) Any bird feeder you put up is going to have a mess under it, where the birds drop seeds and shells. So before you buy one make sure you are putting it over grass or some other area. Birds can be messy eaters. 2) If you are really a bird lover, plant some shrubs that birds like and let the birds eat it as it grows. This is supposed to be a lot healthier for them. However, a lot of the birds who come to our feeder are house sparrows and I'm not too worried about them eating freshly grown millet.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis is a sturdy, well made bird feeder. The tube is rigid metal. The perches and feeder guards are metal. They are removable fr cleaning and storage. The cap is metal. The only plastic is the inner sleeve that covers the windows. This is made out of flexible plastic and has a seam. You need to rotate it so that the seam is not in one of the windows. It hangs by a metal cable that runs the length of the feeder until the upper perch. It is well balanced. The feeder holds 1.5 pounds of mixed seeds. The bottom can be removed for cleaning. The bottom is held on with a spring and is easy to remove and replace. I am worried that it might get hot if placed in the sun (in light of all of the metal parts). It's too early in the season to tell. The birds seem to like it. I do too.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThis was a hit out of the park from the first day it went up! I've had many feeders that the birds had to warm up to; but this one attracted them immediately, and it needs filling more frequently than others that I've had. I could just be missing the drama, but I haven't noticed the squirrels going after it either. It's very popular with finches, sparrows, and other little feeding-station regulars, and also the blue jays plunder from it. A very nice addition to the collection at the feeding station, and entertaining for hours.

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.
Niger (Thistle Seed) is imported from Africa and Asia. Niger won't germinate, but it does have 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: Before filling your feeder with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:
- Remove all old seed.
- Soak feeder in a light water/bleach solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach).
- Scrub feeder and allow to air dry.
- 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!
