Wild birds are so common to us that we often glance at them without a second thought. When we really look at them, observe them and enjoy their special qualities, we can truly appreciate some of nature's amazing creatures.
Ideally a sheltered southeastern exposure location is best for hanging bird feeders since birds like to feed in the sun and out of the wind. Birds also prefer not to have any obstructions over their feeding area so they can see any predators. more»

Birds don't like it.Most of our birds that come around can't get to the seed because it's too far below the grate that keeps out the squirrels. I do like how the clear plastic top protects it from most of the rain.

Beginner's FeederWhile the clear top is adjustable to keep out large birds, the spring action designed to scare off squirrels also scares the birds. However, this is a good entry level bird feeder. You can attract goldfinches and cardinals easily with sunflower seeds. This is not the most durable feeder I own and I'm not fond of the depth where the seed goes. If you fill it, there is to much waste because the birds will soil it before it is all eaten. But for the price, you can see if bird feeding is for you. It's a great hobby and it is great to attract beautiful birds to your yard

Bird FeederI really expected this bird feeder to have fallen apart by now due to the spring which holds the cover in place but I am more than surprised at it's durability since I have so many birds going to it and feeding from it also perching on the top waiting their turn to get seed. I have it adjusted so that squirrels will have a very hard time attempting to enter under the top cover and so far none have tried, at least when I have been watching. I am pleased with the feeder as are the birds using it.

Love it. No more squirrelsThis was a great choice. Easy to put together, fill and hang. No more squirrels eating the bird seed. The seed stays dry too with the little roof over the tray. The whole feeder wobbles to throw the squirrels off when they try to access the food. The simply cannot stay balanced and get around the obstacle of the little roof or from underneath. I seen one try to jump into the tray and it tipped and off he dropped immediately. My squirrels have their own feeder so it angers me when they empty the ones for the birds too. Now, with this feeder, the birds will never be without food.

Not woth the moneyThe cover on this birdfeeder flopped around so much, it scared the birds away. And every time there was a good gust of wind the whole feeder went flying. My yard is filled with piles of seeds. We finally took it apart, removed the spring, and used washers to keep the lid from wabbling. Buy something better with your $22!

Great way to watch the birds and protect the seed from rain but squirrels also love the platformI have been looking for a decent bird feeder that not only allows easy access for the birds to eat but also looks attractive and allows proper drainage for water if it hits the seed pan.
The plastic dome above the feeder is great from the aspect of it helping to shield the seed from being rained on; however, offers NO real protection from pesky squirrels. No matter where I place the feeder, as long as there is a launching point anywhere else on the tree, the squirrels simply jump onto the platform.
Lastly, there is a simple bolt included in the package to lock the hanger to the feeder base; however, it does nothing to keep the two pieces from unscrewing from each other. You just have to be mindful of that to re-tighten on occasion. Poor design feature regardless.
Regardless of the above problem, I would buy this feeder again.

Not a Bird-Watchers DelightSomewhat difficult to put together so that the adjusted cover would not move up and down the shaft. . Clear cover continuously bounces (tilts side to side) because of the soft spring included keeping birds from landing on feeder. Cover cracked in zero-degree temperatures while bouncing on spring in the wind. Seed tray and grid worked as expected. Inferior plastic cover.

Zero stars!1. Does NOT deter squirrels. It barely even slows them down. 2. It falls apart. I've put it back together three times but the last time the hardware got lost in the grass. I'm helping the whole thing find its way into the garbage can. 3. It's ugly!
