I had one it broke. Love the feeder seen how much cheaper oN line than in the store ordered it came in excellent condition. It works great.
I used a 4 x4 post that is used for hanging baskets to fit this feeder. I simply drilled and pushed an old shortened broom handle through it.Not that it requires a 4 x4 post of course but bear in mind that once full of seed, this feeder is heavy, and so some thought should be `where am I going to hang it and on what?`
It looks really nice with neighbors inquiring as to where we bought it.
Two really pesky squirrels have dominated our smaller feeder all summer, despite our efforts to thwart them. They just to seem to sit at a distance and watch me construct yet another obstacle around the stand, and then go about figuring a way around it, which is by the end of the day. Far too clever critters.
Since we put this feeder up on the post, we have watched both ornery pests try their hardest to get to the seed and fail every time. Half expecting them to show up the following day with a chain saw. After a weeks failed attempts, they have now stopped coming around. The birds seem to have taken to this new feeder now that they have figured out that our old one is not there anymore. Easy to fill and it does really look nice.
