Birdscapes - The Preserve Feeder - 2 PackI bought this feeder because of the small holes as I have major problems with squirrels - they can get into almost anything. However, the miscreants manage to
lift the top and get into the feeder and loot the feed. So I velcroed the top and now they
can't get inside, but they hang by their feet and still manage to get some of the food.
I really like these feeders, but the larger birds seem to be reluctant to go inside and
feed the best they can from the outside. I even put squirrel baffles on top ot the feeders, and the little thieves are still able to hang by their back feet and eat as much as they are able to grab with their paws. It's rather amusing to watch thier antics!

Not Squirrel proof.The seeds fall from the ports as the birds eat and pile up on the shelf at the bottom of the tube. The squirrel is then able to stuff himself from the shelf without even having to work at getting seeds out of the ports, the birds do the work for him.

Amazon Review, Best birdfeeder I've ever bought.I'm so glad I got this feeder. The squirrels were enptying my feeders within a day. The birds didn't have a chance. Now they do and I am treated to so many beautiful songbirds. I would recommend this feeder to anyone who wants songbirds to surround the house.

problematic constructionI got this birdfeeder at christmas and after about 3 weeks the sheath covering the wire on which the feeder hangs tore and got bunched up on the top and the bottom by the mere motion of opening and closing the feeder.This has resulted in an inability to properly close the top. Only very small birds enter the cage, so far only chicadees. Finches are very reluctant and so are titmice,nuthatches etc.A downy woodpecker once in a while will try to reach in to secure a seed.Contrary to the sleeve(depicting a cardinal) that was on the cage when it arrived, cardinals are clearly too large and will not go near it.The squirrels have tried and given up!So this is a very mixed success story. I am disappointed that even though we live virtually in the woods and have a lot of birds around us, very few come to the feeder.

Amazon Review, I love this!I bought this as a gift for my grandmother for Christmas. I have had mine for about 4 years. It is a bit rusty on the top from being outside through all the seasons for so long, but I simply repainted the top. It took a bit for birds to use it, but they love it. I have seen squirrels try to get at the seed several times, but they always give up really quickly.
