Excellent feederWe love this feeder, and the birds do, too. The squirrels are truly unhappy as they have not been able to even get onto the feeder. We had 5 squirrels who had gobbled all the seed in our previous feeder, but no more. And the birds love that we can put different seed types in the 2 holes provided. We have been attracting so many birds. They love it!

Superior customer service!Last winter one of the metal ports came off my Fortress Breakaway feeder. I contacted customer service to buy a replacement port, and instead was offered a complete new feeder! I can't say enough great things about this company, its employees and its quality products. My thanks to Perky Pet from me and the backyard birds enjoying the feeders.

I bought 2 of these feeders and have now had the pleasure of watching squirrels fall off and not able to even access seed at all!! I have spent sooooo much money on seed and now thanks to this feeder, only the birds get to eat!! Thanks so much!

halfway to greatnessDay 1, we were very pleased to see that our tenacious squirrels were foiled in their initial efforts to conquer this feeder. The bottom half of the device works superbly, and the overall design makes it very difficult for squirrels to climb down the feeder. Day 2, imagine our surprise when we see a squirrel banquet in progress. They simply pulled the lid off the feeder, turned it sideways, and proceeded to devour birdseed out of both sides of the top of the feeder. I have resorted to duct tape to secure the lid. Either our squirrels are trained engineers, or this feeder is only halfway to greatness.
