Review RateBirdfeederLove the birdfeeder, that's why I bought 3!!
Review Ratesquirrel stumperI bought this a week ago and our smart squirrels love it as all they have to do is hang on upside-down and eat. The birds can't get near it, so this should be called a squirrel feeder.Response From Perky-Pet®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeAt Perky-Pet®, we strive to produce feeders that will be difficult or impossible for squirrels to access, we apologize that this was not your experience.
In areas with high squirrel populations, a more holistic approach may be needed. Safflower seed is a good option for seed, as squirrels typically do not care for the flavor. To further help deter squirrels from stealing seed, we recommend hanging your feeder 10 feet from the nearest squirrel launching site and at least 5 feet off of the ground. .

Review RateSquirrel Stumper?? It Didn\'t Stump my Squirrels!!Listen, it took my squirrels about an hour to figure out how to open the top of the seed container. It DOESN'T lock!! I ended up putting strapping tape over it to hold it in place for 2 days before they chewed through it. This feeder is poorly designed. The squirrels can hang every which way and get seeds from any of the eight feeding stations they choose. But, the worst problem is that while the squirrels are ransacking the feeder, all of my birds are kept away from it. After three days of frustration, i took this feeder down and replaced it with my old one. No, I wouldn't recommend this feeder unless you want to feed the squirrels. It should be advertised as a squirrel feeder to be more accurate.Response From Perky-Pet®Michael : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for your recent Perky-Pet® review. It is recommended that the feeder be placed at least 8-10 feet away from any platforms the squirrels may use to jump to access. The feeder also features a twist lock cap. We apologize for this experience and would appreciate the opportunity to learn more about what occurred.

Review RateBottom Rusting OutI bought this feeder a year ago. It clogs up easily. The bottom is rusting out. The top does not fit back on easily after filling. The design should be changed to be the same as your model 102.Response From Perky-Pet®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for your recent Perky-Pet® review.

Review RateAmazon Review,I have a feeding station with this feeder, a finch sock, a mesh sunflower feeder, a waterer, and a top mounted squirrel proof feeder on top. Also 2 suet feeders attached to the pole. By far this little wire wrapped feeder is the most active feeder of them all. The sparrows love it and I will get more than 6 at a time fighting to get a perch, while the other feeders sit empty. The big one on top has the same feed in it and rarely has a bird at it unless this one is all full up and no place to land.
Review RateAmazon ReviewLike the feeder but the squirrel just hangs on the side and eats from the openings. The design does keep the food from spilling out too easily when it jumps off and the feeder swings.
Review RateAmazon Review, great bird feederThis feeder is replacing an identical one I have used for 6 years with no problems. I love it, it stops the wasting of seed and takes a rough treatment with our area winds. I broke my previous one when I chipped away ice.
Review RateSquirrels are not stumpedAs another reviewer stated, the squirrels hang from their hind legs from the top of the feeder eating the seed from the bottom ports. They have no problem getting at the seed and when the seed on the bottom tray runs out they used their front paws to scoop out more seed. I'm hesitant to get any of the pressure closing feeders since they never apply any of their weight at the feeder ports since they hang from their hind legs on the top of the feeder and eat away.
