Review RateAttractive FeederVery attractive feeder which first caught my eye. It has a large platform perimeter allowing small and larger birds to feed. The platform has many drain holes. Put a clear baffle above it and the squirrels are deterred, and the baffle helps to keep the seed dry. Happy with the purchase.
Review RateGreat design, but...Slats where food comes out are way too large for a mixed seed. Need to be much smaller, lost track of how much has ended on the grass because of this.
Review RateVery Happy w/purchaseThis is just what I was looking for. Stylish and sturdy. Easy to fill and clean. Birds seem to love it. Quick delivery
Review RateWorks for meI originally bought one because I didn't know what to expect. It was a hit with my backyard "pals" so I bought another one. Today I bought my third one to go on a triple hanger and if the birds keep coming I'll be using my social security check to buy bird feed! They love it!
Review RateHad it for yearsThis is a nice feeder that I have had for several years. It holds a nice amount of black oil sunflower seed. My only complaint is that the seed get's tossed out on the ground by the blue jays and I have to refill it every other day or sometimes every day.
Review RateHome Depot ReviewThis bird feeder allows for a good quantity of seed. I love watching cardinals and they enjoy this feeder. It is durable and also very easy to clean.
Review RateHOme Depot Review, Excellent QualityNice metal bird feeder, very attractive. I plan to buy another.
Review RateHome Depot ReviewThis is a quality feeder. The birds can stand on the little ledge on each of the four sides and feed. The glass lets you see if this is full or not. I've had several feeders and this by far is the best!
Review RateHome Depot Review, Good designThis feeder is a nice solid design, that I was impressed with. I have no doubt it will stand up to the test of time. The cover is held on via a threaded rod and the hanging loop at the top screws on to that rod. Depending on how you've hung it from the tree, that can make it a little cumbersome for refilling. However it's worth it, not to have a cheap flimsy design.
Review RateHome Depot Review, Nice Bird FeederChose this feeder for the medal construction. The plastic feeders I have used in the past have not held up well in the sun. Seems to work well the birds are using it and I enjoy the birds in my yard!
