This bird feeder holds sunflower seeds. I put almost a whole 5 pound bag in mine. The birds cling to the outside and pull out the seeds through the mesh, or they go inside the holes and pull from there. It is a lot of fun to watch.
My cats love sitting in the window and cussing at the birds in 'their yard'.

This was the third bird feeder we have set up outside one of our dinning room windows. At first I was skeptical that birds would actually go inside of the little holes - but they do! I've seen many small birds inside pecking at the sunflower seeds this feeder is packed with.
We keep a small pair of binoculars on the table and its fun to watch the birds fly in and peck away. It also provides a bit of shelter for the birds when they are eating. The bigger birds, including a bright red Cardinals who visits regularly, use another of our feeders that they can better access so it's good to know our littler-feathered friends now have a place of their own, too. Before getting this Perky-Pet feeder I've seen larger birds shoo-shooing away the littler birds. Now they all have their place to eat in peace.
This bird feeder is well-made and easy to fill with seed and then hang. Two thumbs up from me!

We got this bird feeder because we are always looking for something new and different to attract wildlife to our back porch. The design is unlike any of our other bird feeders, and the requirement of filling it with only large seed (smaller seeds, and even large ones, fall right through) promised to attract a different sub set of birds than we are used to.
Filling is easy, as the top has just one button that frees it to slide along the hanger wire. Pouring in the black oil sunflower seeds was straightforward, but I recommend putting it on a flat solid surface to limit the amount of seed that falls out while filling. (There’s going to be a lot of leakage, anyway, so make sure you fill it outside in the vicinity of where it will be hung.) Once it was up, it was only a matter of a day or so before the birds found it and started using it. Lots of finches, grosbeaks, sparrows and cardinals use both of the fly through holes and the sides of the feeder. Mourning doves tend to hang out on the ground and eat what drops down. Several smaller birds spent many minutes sitting on the inside, eating. The most common behavior seems to be for the birds to sit in one of the holes and eat seeds from the outside of the feeder by sticking their head out. After two days, we noticed the birds came and went in waves based on our activity, however, this feeder attracts a lot of birds and has caused them to largely ignore our multi-seed feeder. The feeder was more than half empty in just three days. Also, I haven’t seen a single bird get caught or hung up in the feeder like other reviewers have mentioned.
Because this feeder is all metal, I expect it will last a good while. It is well designed, and visually interesting. It does dump a lot of seed during the filling process, but most feeders do. Based on the large number of birds it attracts and the overall ease of use, I give it a full five stars.

Obviously it is not squirrel proof - but still works great. The top lifts up easily to fill as opposed to some that are more troublesome to fill. The birds do hang out in it and on it - so that part is especially cool to watch. Only con is when you load it with the small black sunflower seeds, you will lose a few as they will fly out the sides etc - but will catch more than it loses, so no biggie. I would recommend it to anyone.

I got this bird feeder at the same time as a regular perch feeder (with a hood). I was able to put up the perch feeder right away because I had the right kind of seed for it but this feeder requires either sunflower seed or peanuts and I didn't have either to hand. We're fairly new to the neighborhood and the birds don't know our house yet despite having some window feeders up for several weeks. The perch feeder too has largely been ignored but within a day of putting this feeder up we had several varieties at the feeder including a red-headed woodpecker.
The construction is sturdy... the top lifts off so you can add more seed. I've seen perch in the fly-through areas staying out of the wind. We enjoy this feeder a lot and hope it attracts birds to our other (less well-used) feeders.
