Effective squirrel control while feeding the birds.

I love that the squirrels can't get into this feeder.

Awesome! No squirrels!

  Amazon Review 
Reviewer:

We live in NYC and have a small garden space. We had a traditional bird feeder, but it only attracted the squirrels and pigeons which we wanted to avoid. I saw this feeder on Amazon and gave it a try. At first I was worried because none of the birds were using it. The squirrels checked it out but gave up very quickly. About a week had passed and I was even considering returning it, but I went back and read several of the reviews which said wait a few days for the birds to discover how to use the feeder. Later that day, I noticed a bird peek its head in the feeder and start eating. Then, the next day a few more birds joined in. Now the feeder is a popular spot for all the little song birds. The feeder keeps out all the larger birds such as the pigeons and black birds, but allows in all the little colorful song birds. It is really amazing that every morning we wake up to the songs of the birds in the middle of NYC. I really don't think it would be possible without this feeder. I highly recommend this feeder for it's function and also for it's style.

Reviewer:

I love to feed the birds and where I live, I mostly see bluebirds, sparrows, cardinals and mockingbirds ( I have suet for them)... and of course enormous flocks of blackbirds. I had an ordinary gravity style feeder that the birds would perch on and and eat from all sides. The small birds would eat the millet and sunflowers out of the seed mix and kick the rest to the ground where the cardinals, doves and squirrels would get it. I had no problem with this at all. However, every single day huge flocks of blackbirds would swoop in and run off the other birds and empty the feeder in 10 minutes or less.

Rather than stop feeding the birds, I bought this feeder and put it up. The sparrows and bluebirds have no problem getting inside to eat from the perches and they still eat the millet and sunflower seeds and drop the rest. This feeder catches what they drop in the bottom where the cardinals and larger birds can reach it through the wire. A little will fall to the ground but not nearly as much as before so I will sprinkle a little so the doves can have some. The blackbirds absolutely hate this feeder and do not like to cling to the wire to try to get the seed. They will fly in and in a matter of a minute or less, they fly off for easier pickings.

I now feed only the birds I enjoy watching and I spend far less on seed mix. This is a well built feeder, easy to fill and moderately easy to clean. And let's not forget how attractive this feeder is!

The squirrels hang on it but can't get to the seeds. I like watching the birds eat out of it. Tired of feeding the squirrels.

Reviewer:

This is a great feeder for the little birds. The big birds don't know what to do with it. The squirrels don't even attempt. Happy Feeding.

  Amazon Review 
Reviewer:

Bought this for my dad for his birthday. He loves it! He had it up in his yard the very next day. The smaller birds fit through the holes while the larger birds sit on the bottom edge. They have not had issues with squirrels getting into the feeder but have noticed that some have learned that they can shake the feeder to get the food out. All in all, everyone is satisfied with this feeder.

  Amazon Review, Best feeder ever 
Reviewer:

Very nice to fill and fun to watch the squirrels try to get the seed which they finally gave up!

  Amazon Review, Best birdfeeder I've ever bought. 
Reviewer:

I'm so glad I got this feeder. The squirrels were enptying my feeders within a day. The birds didn't have a chance. Now they do and I am treated to so many beautiful songbirds. I would recommend this feeder to anyone who wants songbirds to surround the house.

  Amazon Review, I love this! 
Reviewer:

I bought this as a gift for my grandmother for Christmas. I have had mine for about 4 years. It is a bit rusty on the top from being outside through all the seasons for so long, but I simply repainted the top. It took a bit for birds to use it, but they love it. I have seen squirrels try to get at the seed several times, but they always give up really quickly.

Reviewer:

I had a birdfeeder with a grid on it for years and it finally bit the dust. I couldn't find the same model, but when I saw this one I thought it looked much better; with the crossing slanted grid instead of the boxed grid my old one had. It works great - the little birds just swoop right in but the noisy blue birds are out of luck.



  Amazon Review 
Reviewer:

I like this feeder because it solved the problem of unwelcome pigeons. The downside is that is never completely empties because the feeding holes don't go all the way to the bottom.

  Review Posted on Amazon.com 
Reviewer:

I love this bird feeder because it lives up to the reviews I read on it before purchasing; it truly does keep the squirrels out and only small bird can enter to feed. The bottom tray keeps the seeds from spilling. It's well constructed, too. The reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because it only has 4 perches, not 6.

Reviewer:

This feeder took a few days for the birds to venture inside of the squirrel-proof barrier, but now they are used to it & it's fun to watch them enjoying the seeds without the squirrels upstaging them. At least so far!



  Review Posted on Amazon.com 
Reviewer:

We got this feeder 2 weeks ago to replace an older one that was being raided by a very persistent squirrel. It seemed well built, was easy to fill, and looked better than most squirrel-proof feeders.

But after a week, no birds were using this feeder, and I began to feel like I had wasted my money. Then one male Goldfinch figured it out. The next day, his mate was feeding. After a few more days, four pairs of Goldfinches and several other birds were using the feeder. As far as we can tell, the squirrels haven't gotten into it yet.

Just be patient, and the birds will figure it out.



  Amazon Review 
Reviewer:

I feel compelled to write my first review cuz this item should have at least 4 stars.
I'm back buying my second.
This is easily the most attractive of all the feeders I've seen so far and I'd like to address the two negative reviews.
I've had this feeder for over a year now and we have a ton of grey squirrels but none have ever figured out how to get seed from it. When it is shaken, the seed mostly drops in the tray. That said....the population of red tree squirrels is increasing recently and they are able to climb right through the caging. They sit inside and will even let me walk up to the feeder at times. I don't have a problem with these small squirrel, it's the greys that are destructive. And lastly another review mentioned plastic hanger......it's actually metal wire with a plastic coating.
Buy it......you'll love it.

This is a great feeder but the squirrels can still get in if you change the way the top closes they will not be able to take the top off they take the top off and get inside.

Dear Vanessa,

We recommend adding a Perky Pet® Transparent Squirrel Baffler to your feeder, in order to prevent the squirrels from removing the lid off of your feeder. The baffler will also create a natural barrier to block the squirrels from trying to access the sides of the feeder as well. We apologize that the determined squirrels were able to access the feeder; we appreciate the time you have taken to share this feedback.

If you need any additional information about this or any of our products, please contact us at 1-855-PERKY-PET (1-855-737-5973).

  problematic construction 
Reviewer:

I got this birdfeeder at christmas and after about 3 weeks the sheath covering the wire on which the feeder hangs tore and got bunched up on the top and the bottom by the mere motion of opening and closing the feeder.This has resulted in an inability to properly close the top. Only very small birds enter the cage, so far only chicadees. Finches are very reluctant and so are titmice,nuthatches etc.A downy woodpecker once in a while will try to reach in to secure a seed.Contrary to the sleeve(depicting a cardinal) that was on the cage when it arrived, cardinals are clearly too large and will not go near it.The squirrels have tried and given up!So this is a very mixed success story. I am disappointed that even though we live virtually in the woods and have a lot of birds around us, very few come to the feeder.

Dear Catherine,

 

Thank you for submitting a review for the Birdscapes® The Preserve™ Feeder (model 735). Birds are creatures of habit. It can take several weeks for them to take to a new feeder. For an enthusiastic feeder these few weeks can certainly feel like an eternity!

 

Try these tips to help attract birds to your new feeder: Temporarily take down any established feeders on your property. This will help them to find their new feeder. Once you notice birds feeding from your new feeders, replace the established ones. If this is your first feeder try placing a shiny pan (like a pie pan) on the ground beneath your feeder to attract hungry birds.

 

We hope you find these tips helpful! If you have questions or need assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).

Dear Katie,

 

Thank you for reviewing the Birdscapes® The Preserve™ feeder (model 735). Your feedback has been shared with our product development. It can take some time for birds to become accustomed to and trust something new in their environment. Removing other feeders for a period of time sometimes will speed up the process of attracting birds.

  Not squirrel proof at all 
Reviewer:

Got this feeder at a store near by without knowing it was supposed to be squirrel proof but can tell it isn't. Few squirrels are eating more seeds than a lot of birds.

Typically caged style feeders like this are very effective in protecting your feeder from the damage squirrels can cause. However squirrels can be very persistent and sometimes a more holistic approach is needed to deter them. We recommend placing or hanging the feeder on a pole that is 10 feet away from the nearest tree, fence or other launching site making sure it is at least 5 feet above the ground. Also adding a squirrel baffle above and or below your feeder is very effective in preventing squirrels from gaining access.

  Not Squirrel proof. 
Reviewer:

The seeds fall from the ports as the birds eat and pile up on the shelf at the bottom of the tube. The squirrel is then able to stuff himself from the shelf without even having to work at getting seeds out of the ports, the birds do the work for him.
