I got this as a birthday present and I love it. The feeder is very sturdy and I, too, have issues with squirrels. The lantern design is very pretty out in my yard and the materials are much easier to clean than a wooden bird feeder. Plus you can't beat this price for such a nice feeder!
I have a problem with squirrels. I seem to feed the squirrels more than I do the birds. This bird feeder really is squirrel proof!! The top actually locks in place and the squirrels can't get it open. This is a beautiful bird feeder to hang on your patio or porch.
