I couldn't be more happy with this product. It is very attractive and well built. The design allows each receptacle to contain either seed (or by flipping it upside down) water. My birds don't seem to be drinking the water though perhaps they will as we get deeper into summer and natural water sources get harder to find. If they don't take an interest in it by then, I'll have the option to put seed on both sides. I can even experiment with two different kinds of seeds to see what attracts which type of bird. The curlicue fixture from which these hang gives the entire thing a little bit of movement, like the balance of a scale, which may help to dissuade squirrels or other undesirables from getting into your birdseed. I used an angle bracket to mount mine to the side of an arbor rather than hang it from above. My cats and I are thoroughly enjoying the all day bird show. Now to find a source for the 50lb bags of birdseed I'm going to need....

This Birdscapes Bird Feeder is the perfect thing for our Desert garden! We hang it in the shade because of the HEAT in our area and birds of all sizes love it. Having read that the BEST way to attract wild life in our hot, dry climate is to provide WATER, we fill both sides with water - but you could just as easily fill one or both sides with birdseed. And its very attractively made, so is a nice addition to our backyard. Also, because there are TWO silos, it needs filling less often. Recommended.
