When I filled one of them up and hung it on the usual tree I was excited to see if it worked. In about a half hour a red squirrel was on it trying to figure out how it was going to get it's meal, well, it didn't take long before he was hanging on the side of the feeder reaching in and pulling out seeds like there was no deterrent. I guess the grey ones aren't as smart, since they haven't figured it out yet, except by hanging on the roof and reaching in from the bottom and sometimes the lever will close when they lose their balance and press down on it.Date published: 2016-07-25Rated 3 out of 5 by Bob H from Not squirrel proof I bought these a couple of weeks ago and I hang them both off my deck...one on the back & one on the side. The squirrels can still get to it by standing on the rail of the deck and push down on the lip which allows them to get to the food. I turned the one on the side of my deck backwards and that works. However, if I ty=urned the one on the back of the deck backwards we can't see the birds where we can on the side.Date published: 2016-07-12Rated 4 out of 5 by hippie chic from Really good feeders My birds love these feeders. The little green one was slightly bent during shipping but still works great. The cute little red one needed a little tweaking. The top would not tighten down like the green one. A few minutes after hanging it one of my industrious little squirrels had removed the top and was inside the feeder having a great time, My DH had to tweak it a little for the top to tighten down, After that the squirrels knocked in the plastic that covers the little doors and windows. DH fixed that also. So far so good. These are the most squirrel proof of any feeders I have tried. Its tough to outsmart the little furry things.Date published: 2016-06-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackie832 from Birds Love Them I ordered these last month as a Thank You-Housewarming gift.

No birds wasted my money .Date published: 2016-06-07Rated 5 out of 5 by mango123 from Awesome feeder. Great bird feeder. We had a feeder that the birds never used but the squirrels had a field day with. This is a well built feeder and the birds love it! We now have bird lines in the yard waiting for the feeder. It's like a TSA line at the airport! Squirrels have tried to feed but so far have failed miserably. Love it.Date published: 2016-05-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Works Awesome! We are very happy with the quality of both feeders. I wish they had more color choices so I could buy more! The squirrels climbed on it for a few days trying to get seed, but have since given up because they can't get anything out when they do. Would definitely recommend.Date published: 2016-05-09

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!
