This wild bird feeder comes with a metal hanger for hanging near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.
Cleaning the Feeder
Be sure to keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure happy birds and return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it every few weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

Love this feeder with one exceptionI purchased the red Squirrel-Be-Gone and in July 2015, purchased the green 2 months prior. I am very pleased that the birds love it and the squirrel's can't seem to master it, thank goodness. But, the roof peak has rusted terribly within 2 months on the green feeder! Disappointed about rust on the roof peak as the red one has not.

Perky-Pet Squirrel Be Gone llWe have had these great bird feeders before--however, they are not bear proof so we had to replace them. Your service was great--we had our feeders up just two days after ordering them.

Great product but didn't keep out the squirrels.I think the feeders are awesome but they are NOT squirrel proof. The squirrels we have just hang upside down from the top and eat all the seed they want. I need one that squirrels can't get into.

Worked until squirrels figured out how to trip itI received one for Christmas. I was so excited no more squirrels. However, nine months later the squirrels learned how to trip the spring so they can eat freely. So sad! Didn't want to feed the squirrels.
