Amazon Review, Great and Squirrel Proof! July 02, 2013
Reviewer: Samantha Schafer
I got this for my dad for his birthday and he really likes it. It is one of the more squirrel proof feeders that he has and he really likes it. Says that it is a bit of a pain to fill with seed though.
Amazon Review, Excellent Feeder! April 22, 2013
This is the 3rd time I have purchased this feeder in about 20 years. Holds larger seeds like sunflower, corn, peanuts or safflower. Really attracts cardinals, nuthatches, smaller woodpeckers, and many other birds who don't use my other feeders. Very durable. Mostly squirrel resistant. We have a lot of squirrels, and we have only had one or two really smart ones that could figure out how to open the cover!
Our best and most popular (with the birds) bird feeder - Amazon Review August 09, 2011

We love that this bird feeder helps prevent birds from "wasting" the seeds. With our other feeders, the birds scatter and throw the seeds all over the ground and within days the feeder is empty. It also helps keep the seeds from getting wet.
A durable feeder - Amazon Review June 24, 2010
Reviewer: Pet owner "Portia"
I just bought the third feeder of this type, for different locations, not because they needed to be replaced. These feeders live up to the claims--they are all metal and have stood up well to both squirrels and raccoons. Squirrels can get to the seeds, but they do not damage the feeder. Cardinals and finches are the most frequent visitors, but other feeder birds, such as chickadees and nuthatches also use it. My oldest feeder of this type has been in service for more than four years. They really do hold up and deliver the seed.
The only disadvantage to the design is the need to use two hands to fill the feeder since there's no support for the wire mesh body of the feeder. You have to hold the bail at the top and, with the other hand, open the top trap door and pour in the seed. At worst it's just a little awkward.
Some NO-NO feeders have a perch (metal ring) around the feeder, but this model has a tray. I prefer the tray because it keeps seeds from falling to the ground and provides more space for birds.
In my experience, this is an excellent feeder for backyard birding.
Birds like it and squirrels don't - Amazon Review February 25, 2012
Set this up on a metal crook and the first day had a beautiful Blue Jay and many other birds visiting. The squirrels have made many attempts to access the food, but without success.
