Great Feeder!I am always looking for durable, reliably squirrel-proof feeders. The reviews of this one were spot-on, I am totally satisfied with it! Also, the birds in my neighborhood must be pretty smart, they had this one figured out within 3 days! I'm sure it'll be great when the snow returns.

Squirrels eat through plasticI have yet to find a plastic feeder like this that the squirrels do not eat their way through. Sometimes takes a couple of weeks or so but they always do. I even had one squirrel bend the heavy wire of a total-wire feeder just enough to get in, but then was stuck. I had to hacksaw the poor thing out, toss the feeder. I'll try the heavy metal step-plate style next and if they figure that out, I give up!

No birdsI Purchased this bird feeder because we have a problem with large birds and squirrels. However, it not only keeps the squirrels away, we haven't seen a single bird on the feeder. We have been watching for 2 weeks now and nothing. Starting to think the design is not 'bird friendly'. I also purchased the new home style feeder with the same results. Any suggestion on how to attract birds to the feeder? Like the design and thats why I gave it my rating a #3.

Tiny birds stuggle to reach the portsWe were excited to get this feeder for a spot that proves tempting to squirrels, however our small Lesser Goldfinches and American Goldfinches really have to stretch to reach the seeds! It looks to be more water proof than most.

Review Posted on Amazon.comI put this feeder up on a shepherd's crook immediately after my purchase. I used a fruit and nut mix (sunflower hearts and mixed dried fruit), which has been the birds' favorite in our yard. Two weeks, no birds. No squirrels either. Leaving in the same food, I moved the feeder to another location, this time placing it on a tree limb. Within two hours I had birds on the feeder! They were using a nearby limb as a launch site from which to get up under the feeder's hood. It seemed that some of them were not able, from the ground, to get the "lift" necessary to reach the feeder; but by flying from the nearby limb they could manage.07-30-11 UPDATE: I needed to upgrade this rating to five stars. I've had the feeder in its tree location for two and a half weeks now. I've tried three different seed mixes. Regardless the food offered, I can't keep it filled! The food was running out so quickly I thought something must be shaking the feeder to make the seed drop out. So one day when working at home I placed the feeder in the same tree, but close enough to my home office window that I could watch it. All day long there were birds on the feeder and others fighting for space. Before my eyes I watched the level of the seed slowly drop, drop, drop. Never a big bird or a squirrel. Finches, titmouse, chickadees, (and yes, sparrows) love this thing! Even as I have been typing this there are three birds on the feeder and six more perched in nearby branches chattering away, waiting their turn. If I didn't want cardinals, this would be the only feeder I would have. Am definitely buying another the next time I need a feeder.

Unable to attract birdsI Purchased this bird feeder because we have a problem with black birds and felt the design of the feeder would keep those pesky black birds away. However, it not only keeps the black birds away, we haven't seen a single bird on the feeder. We have been watching for 2 weeks now and nothing. Starting to think the design is not 'bird friendly'. Any suggestion on how to attract 'good' birds to the feeder? Like the design and thats why I gave it my rating a #3.
