Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upside Down Feeder and Woodpeckers Several years ago I discovered the Perky Pet Upside Down Finch Feeder. We have even given them as gifts. Our feeders are not near trees; but this year, we're having a problem with a woodpecker, which we've never had before. It keeps damaging the plastic tubes to the point that the feeders are unusable. We really enjoy watching the finches and love the fact that it had stopped intruders until now. Do you make a feeder with a glass or metal tube?Thank you,Charlie   RESPONSE FROM PERKY-PET JUNE 17, 2014 Dear Charlie,We are glad to hear how well this finch feeder has worked for you over the last few years. If the woodpecker is damaging the tube of the feeders, we do have replacement tubes available directly on our website. We also have a variety of tube feeders available online. Some select feeders have a metal tube and we also have a new line of Heavy-Duty Tube Feeders that use a thicker plastic and metal seed ports. If you have questions or need additional assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazon Review, Great Feeder! This is not our first Perky Pet upside down finch feeder (our others have worn out), but it is our first Deluxe model. We find that it seems heavier and more durable than the standard one. The plastic tube seems thicker. The perches and the bottom piece fit snuggly and won't fall out. The American Gold Finch is the only finch that comes to feed on this feeder...other finches and other birds try, but can't seem to hold on when they turn upside down, like the goldfinches do! Some people have commented that other birds have used their feeder, but we suggest that those birds may be the females who aren't as bright yellow as the males or perhaps the young ones who haven't gotten all their coloring yet. Also, in the winter, these birds are not brightly colored, but rather dull - almost a brown color. So, rest assured that when you see a bird feeding upside down on this feeder, you most likely are feeding an American Gold Finch! This summer they seem to come at all times during the day, and in the morning and the evening there are several around waiting to get onto a perch! Be prepared with plenty of thistle seed...the feeder holds about 2 1/2 pounds, and they can empty it in just under a week's time at our house! We just love to watch them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The more, The Better I have had four Perky-Pet Upside Down Thistle feeders for years and the Goldfinches love them.The metal caps and metal perches are so much better. BUT now the squirrels have chewed holes into the plastic on two. Design me a CAGE that I can hang up and open from the bottom to insert and remove my feeder. I love these feeders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from upside down is best! Have used the upside down feeder for several years & love it.when using other feeders all birds ate from it. Not many beside finches are able to cling upside down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from goldfinch delight I've already had one of these Perky-Pet upside down goldfinch feeders. The goldfinches like this type of feeder. Like the description says, it keeps squirrels at bay but unfortunately it doesn't defeat them - they got thru the plastic eventually; took them two years. It's a delight to watch the goldfinches use it hanging upside down to eat. Nicely constructed at a fair price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazon Review, Great for smaller birds This is a great bird feeder and works really well. I had no problems attracting finches to my feeder. It only took a couple of days before birds started coming to the feeder. The only problem I have is that the plastic is not the most durable. Squirrels were able to eat through the plastic easily and left a hole in my feeder. If you get this feeder you must have a squirrel guard or this feeder will not last long.
