Review RateTOTALLY SQUIRRELL PROOF ( even if they try )I already own several and wanted to send them to Family Members
( in Nebraska and Virginia )
Woodpeckers , Chickadees and others LOVE THEM
Review RateMust-have feeder!I was so glad to find this style of feeder on this site. It is a must-have for shelled peanuts; attracts so many species and the squirrels can't chew through it. And, I love that the peanuts don't leave a mess on the ground under the feeder. I have had one for quite some time and am ordering another.
Review RateI can\'t keep it filled!I bought this feeder about 2 weeks ago and it took the birds about 30 minutes to find it. The chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers and others love the sunflower seeds and are on it all the time. This is a great feeder and I plan on purchasing another. Thank you!
Review RateBullet Proof!Squirrels in the neighborhood have destroyed most of my feeders. My workshop is backed up with feeders needing metal reinforcement and repair. This bad boy will foil them! Doesn't hold much, but those rascally squirrels can't tear this one up! I ordered two more today to feed my friends in the current cold spell. A good variety of birds come to this thing; many I've not seen before. Great fun. You must get one (or two!).
Review RateSuper 100% metal feederI really like this small feeder. It's 100% metal from top to bottom. Doesn't hold a lot of seed like other feeders do, so it's perfect to hand in a smaller area or off an apartment balcony. Easy to fill. I slid a couple skewers through the holes to act as perches and added a dome to protect it from the elements. WONT WORK FOR BIRD SEED or SAFFLOWER seeds as the holes are too big and there's no catch basin. But for Sunflower Seeds, it's perfect. I'm Very pleased with the quality of this feeder and you won't find any better at this price.
Review RateAmazon Review, Birds love it!Bought as a replacement for one the raccoons destroyed (let it fall onto concrete after pulling it onto the porch roof which caused the cap to break!).
Review RateAmazon Review, An absolute must for bird lovers!!Attracts lots off woodpeckers, finches & titmice. Purchased 2 years ago and still going strong. I couldn't be happier & would order again.
Review RateAmazon ReviewThe holes are relatively big for anything but nuts, but I read on here that someone used it as a suet feeder, and I went with that. I buy cheap woodpecker suet squares at Menards (89cents) slice them up and slide them in. Squirrels and chipmunks leave it alone, and it attracts all kinds of woodpeckers, nuthatches, and other birds. The suet lasts a good while and doesn't make the mess it made in the conventional square wire holder. Very very satisfied .
Review RateAmazon Review, Instantly satisfiedI hung this feeder up in the backyard this morning and by this evening a Downy Woodpecker (which I rarely see) came to visit and stayed for about 5 minutes. It is filled with unshelled peanuts and he seemed to enjoy them. For such an inexpensive feeder it feels very durable. It looks like it would be hard for squirrels to steal from as well but they haven't found it yet so we'll see how they deal with it later. I am instantly satisfied with this feeder and can't wait to see what new birds it attracts. Edit: Two weeks after getting it, this feeder has attracted many woodpeckers, titmice, chickadees, and for the first time today a nuthatch. Also, I have only had to partially fill it once since filling it the first time. Not only does it get birds to stay for a while when they visit, but the food lasts a long time.
Review RateAmazon Review, Squirrel Proof and Finch FriendlyThis is the only reasonably priced bird feeder I have found that the squirrels can't destroy. I live in a rural wooded area and have lots of hungry squirrels. They can destroy a plastic feeder in minutes. This feeder holds sunflower seeds, and they hang on it all the time, but they can only get one seed at a time through the sides of the feeder, so they can't pull that "dump all the seed out at once and eat it off the ground" trick with this feeder! And although they have managed to chip away at the cap, they can't damage it enough to access the seed from the top of the feeder. I have had this feeder for years (actually, I have 4 of them) and just bought this new one for a friend's birthday. While shopping for it, I discovered that there are many feeders of this general type for sale, but at very high prices! You can't beat this one for price and practicality. A bonus is that the feeder attracts bunches of beautiful yellow finches also! Every finch feeder I've ever had has been destroyed by squirrels...but the finches seem to enjoy sunflower seeds every bit as as much as they like finch food! I highly recommend this feeder.
