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.

I purchased 1 red country style and 1 green home style squirrel be gone feeders. As soon as I hung them, squirrels came from all over my 6 country acres, climbing all over the feeders trying to work in teams of 2 and 3 to get the food, when they had no luck they left in frustration. I have finally won the war on squirrels, I tried every product imaginable to deter the squirrels from eating bird feed at my beautiful hand made wooden gazebos,prior to purchasing these feeders they were eating several pounds of food each day. They are now eating the corn I have had out all winter for them. Every day I still have squirrels trying to get in the feeders with no luck. My bird feed seed bill has dropped considerably with these new feeders and I only have to fill them twice a week. I have many birds and several types all day long at these new feeders. I would highly recommend these feeders to any bird watcher. Also this Company is EXCELLENT to do business with I ordered my feeders on Sunday afternoon and had them on Wednesday. I am exceptionally pleased with the feeders they were exactly as advertised and they were half the price of our local stores. Thank-you and happy bird watching, my birds are eating in style now.

I had just purchased my squirrel proof feeder, filled and hung it as soon as I got home. Not 10 minutes later one of my 4 squirrels needed to get a better look and immediately jumped on it from the fence, but as soon as he touched down the metal roof thwarted his effort. He hasn't been back. I'm sure another will try the perch if they get that far. Great feeder.
