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.

Great feeder but...Just got the vertical feeder in a nice gray color to replace an ancient more square "squirrel proof" feeder whose spring-loaded weight bar enabling birds to access seed broke. This new one was easy to assemble and hang, and the free hook helped for use in a tall ficus tree. However, the seed runs out of the many feeder holes and draws the birds to the ground instead. OK in my case because our cats are lazy, but I'm not--having to sweep up the seed. Otherwise, OK.

Just OKI bought this a few weeks ago to replace a slide/spring feeder that had broke. Due to squirrels the slide spring feeders are great. Though this one does not slide enough and the squirrels can still get into and hang on, even after I adjusted it. Also this is a large feeder, I only fill it up 1/2 way so the top holes unfortunately are not used. Though the birds have been a plenty and a wonderful sight to see, they don't seem to mind the squirrels. :)!

Amazon ReviewIt's very nice, I definitely use more bird feed. We haven't seen any squirrels on the feeder. I like to see the birds conglomerate altogether to eat. It's interesting.

poorly designedThe lid of this bird feeder does not come off completely for ease of filling, and once the feeder is full, it may or may not hang straight, since the wire by which it hangs runs through the inside of the feeder. Result - a feeder listing on the pole with the lid knocked loose. I'm returning it.

Amazon ReviewReplacement for same product damaged by windstorm. I had 2 of these that were damaged and I bought 2 more to replace the damaged. While I have a significant squirrel population, I don't have squirrel issues with these feeders. The key to eliminating any squirrel issues was placement of the feeders.

Amazon Review, The birds love thisWe are on our third replacement of this solid feeder. We have been very happy with the 2 or 3 years that they have lasted in the Florida sun and rain. Birds do love this and we have no problems with squirrels.
