Skip ItThis feeder is very low quality. The materials are thin and flimsy. It seems more like a toy than an outdoor product. Granted, it's priced accordingly, but the one I bought from a well-known bird store franchise, which cost three times as much, will last a life time, I also don't particularly find the ability to "switch" the feeder for different types of seeds very useful.

Entry LevelIf you are thinking about attracting birds to your yard or just want to feed them for a season, this feed is a good low cost entry level feeder. The quality is not very durable, so don't expect it to last very long. Quality bird feeders are very expensive. This does have the versatility to use thistle which finches love, or regular wild birdseed for sparrows, starlings, cardinals and many others. If you enjoy bird feeding, make a larger investment. If you are not sure this is an inexpensive option.

Good little feederThis is a decent bird feeder. I decided to get an additional one to swap out with my other tube feeder when it needs cleaning (and vice versa). It's good to have a spare, because you want the feeder to be bone-dry before you refill it. It is very lightweight, and has adjustable ports so you can fill it with standard seed or thistle only. I use shell-less to minimize mess and the standard ports keep shelled sunflower seeds nicely. The first day I put it out I had more goldfinches than I'd seen in a long time. We don't have squirrels in my neighborhood which is still rather new and doesn't have established trees, plus the valley below us is ripe with old trees, so the squirrels have no incentive to come up to higher ground. However, I dealt with plenty of squirrels over many years in Northern Virginia and believe me, squirrels will do major damage to this feeder. A baffle on a pole is a must, or a wide baffle above if you hang it from a tree branch.

Nice ideaThe bird feeder has issues with seeds that spill onto a small ledge at the feeder. They grow and cause a stinky problem. Moister ruins the seed and it stays full. The birds pass it over. You may be better off with a different feeder. Can't really tell you much good. It was easy to hang and watch it take up space. There is no weight to the feeder so the wind blows it around a good bit.

Not Recommended!First out of the shipping box, one of the bird perch dispenser window is missing on the feeding tube. The entire tube feeder is really light. There is no weight to it, which is doubtful that it will do well outdoor in windy condition. The feeding tube itself is of flimsy plastic; there seems little strength or stiffness to the tube. Everything snaps together with integral plastic tabs. I did not deploy this feeder for further testing and I am not recommending this product. It is of poor quality and quality control.

Good sizeNice long tube holds a good amount of bird seed or thistle. The perches turn so you can change the opening for either type of seed. Easy to fill by lifting the cap off the top. The perches are a little difficult to re-position because the tube is a very soft plastic. and once you take them out, it's hard to get them back in. I would have preferred a harder plastic as it would be sturdier.

Birdscapes Safari Tube FeederCool bird feeder, did have an issue with when one of the feeder ports fell off and struggled to get it back one. After a little tweaking, I did manage to correctly attached the feeding port and then off to the yard to hang the feeder. Nice quality overall, but the feeder ports could have been a little larger and snap in so they have a sturdier sound when attached.
I must say that once I place the feeder outside; there was an invasion of Finches, they were all over the feeder and I have to refill it almost everyday. No problems with the feeder ports and the birds continue to come 5-7 at a time for hours.
