Amazon ReviewThis is a very nice-looking feeder, with a faux brushed copper finish and appealing design. It's attractive enough to hang in front of the bay window in our kitchen for all to see! It's all plastic, which hasn't yet proved to be a problem, but it gives it a cheaper feel than a feeder made of glass and metal. However, you don't have to worry about anything rusting, and if the feeder somehow falls, it won't shatter as easily as glass. The adjustable rotating ports are a nice feature, but I find they don't stay in place very well. I wish there was a way to lock them in position. I regularly look out to find them completely folded in, though I'm not sure what causes this...squirrels, perhaps? So I have to squeeze behind the bushes to readjust them more often than I'd like. Also, when you go to fill it up, there is a plastic attachment holding the hook in place which transects the opening to the feeder, and I have to be very careful when pouring the seeds in to keep from scattering them everywhere. It would be nice if there was a way to twist the attachment off while filling the feeder. But overall, I've been very pleased with this bird feeder. I've had it for almost a year, and it shows virtually no signs of wear or weathering. The birds don't seem to have any complaints about it either, as it is frequently emptied! This is an attractive, well-designed feeder, and I highly recommend it!
