Amazon Review December 26, 2013
Reviewer: MotherLode, very happy
Negative: The collapsable mesh makes it difficult to fill.
Positive: Everything else! This has attracted a number of different birds - chicakdees, cardinals, kinglets, bluebirds, and more. Great, well-made product.

Reviewer: Marie V. Wynne, The Birds Love It
It is easy to hang and keeps the seeds inside until the birds come to eat. Convenient perching bar as well. We have enjoyed watching cardinal parents bring their young to eat. It takes a couple of weeks for the birds to discover, but once they did, there is now a steady stream of winged visitors. A couple of the squirrels in the neighborhood have attempted to break into it but they only managed to pull a couple of seeds through to fall on the ground and soon grew tired of trying.I would recommend this feeder, it appears to be durable, easy to refill and a joy to watch.

haha squirrels, cant empty this one out!! They tried to chew through it but couldn't do that so the have left it alone!
Amazon Review June 25, 2013
Here, where it rains and/or snows a lot, this feeder enables the water to drain out and allow the seeds to dry out. I hang it way up high so my young cat cannot catch the birds!

Reviewer: eLand, Metal Feeder
I like this feeder. It is easy to fill and birds love it. I really appreciate that it is all metal. The squirrels still go after it but they cannot chew through it like the last one I had. I can imagine that this feeder will last for several years. Would buy it again.

Reviewer: Joyce Nichols, happy birds
This feeder is sturdy. Even the squirrels can't hurt it. It is a little challenging to refill the seeds sometimes as it folds down.

Easy to assemble, nice looking. I got this as a gift for my grandma who was having trouble with squirrels ruining her birdfeeders and keeping the birds away. This was the easiest birdfeeder to assemble - really just slip the top on after you fill it up with seed - and looked nice in her yard. The metal frame is perfect for keeping pesky squirrels at bay.

I just received this as a present last night. I put it up this morning with sunflower chips in it, and the birds are all over it now. Several can eat from it at once. They still use the seed tube I had up before, but this gives more of them access to the seeds at one time. I'm also impressed that it's all metal, so more difficult for squirrels to damage it.

Great Feeder. I bought this feeder to help control nuisance birds. I cut the wire perch off the bottom of the feeder with wire cutters to discourage perching birds. I still have a few sparrows and house finches but not as many as before that overtook the feeders i had before. Now the chickadees, nuthatches and titmouse's that like to cling to the wire can feed more easily.
A great feeder - Amazon Review September 12, 2012
Reviewer: Harold P. Gray Jr.
The birds love this feeder (and it's bigger cousin which I bought at the same time.) ...
Also the mesh construction allows the seeds to dry after our Florida afternoon rains as opposed to several other types I've tried...
I'm hoping the material will last for a few years hanging in the Ocean breeze - from experience - most metal feeders only last a year or two - but a small price to pay for having the birds around in the back yard.
Footnote: I've noted that the bigger birds (lots of doves here this time of year) stay away from this feeder. I actually wanted this as the bigger birds were hogging some of my other feeders.
So the Finches have somewhere to sit in quiet - and they seem to love this feeder - they have a stand to sit on and seem to be able to get to the seeds just fine.

It is a different product (bird feeder) than most, however, seems to work well, and the birds do seem to like it.
Black Sunflower Bird Feeder - Amazon Review July 30, 2012
Reviewer: Dennis G. Tanji
My birds love this feeder. The only problem is that they love it too much. I have to fill it up about twice a week. The birds end up causing a lot of seeds to fall to the ground, but I have had up to 10 birds and a squirrel picking up seeds from the ground below the feeder.
Amazon Review June 12, 2012
Reviewer: Robin Fellner "Book Bird"
My previous bird feeder was completely trashed by a bear/raccoon and it was very expensive. Mostly I am looking to deter Blue Jays and Chipmunks and as you browse through reviews, that is pretty tough. This feeder is a gem: large birds just can't get into it easily enough to want to bother and I haven't seen a Chipmunk even try. It has a lid to deflect the rain and mist; the perch goes completely around the bottom allowing a lot of birds access and the birds also like clinging to the metal mesh. It is all powder coated metal, comes completely apart and is a breeze to keep clean. I was concerned that the birds wouldn't like the feeder; not so, they like it better than my other feeder and there is a lot less territorial behavior. One big factor that I noticed is that there is a lot less waste of the seed. All in all, a great feeder design and the price is very reasonable. Kudos all around.

This birdfeeder came quickly and was east to set up and use. I am enjoying watching the birds from my window!
Bronze Original Bird Feeder - Amazon Review January 20, 2012
Reviewer: TN reader
This feeder is a hit in my backyard! I filled it with black oil sunflower seeds and within an hour I had birds everywhere! I've had finches, chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, cardinals and woodpeckers so far. I've had as many as 7 titmice on it at one time with others perched atop the shepherd's crook waiting their turn. The finches really seem to like clinging to the mesh. I also have a regular hopper type feeder but this feeder gets more visitors. I get very little waste of seeds through the holes. I'm super pleased with this feeder and would highly recommend it.
Update: I've had this feeder for nearly a year and it still is the bird's favorite. It's held up great to the weather and the inevitable squirrel visitor, unlike some other feeders that are not metal which the squirrels can chew up. I worried that it wouldn't protect against rain at all, but it does surprisingly well. I've never had to clean out wet, yucky sunflower seed.
This feeder has continued to impress me and I highly recommend it.

This is my second one of these bird feeders - a bear got the first one and totally destroyed it. We get lots and lots of gross beaks in the spring and they absolutely love this feeder.
These feeders are great - Amazon Review September 10, 2011
Reviewer: S. Foster
I bought one and then I liked it enough to buy another. The reason is that I had trouble with squirrels turning my old feeder over and dumping it out. With this one, I can enjoy watching them, but they can only get one seed at a time out through the metal mesh. They share with the birds and I don't spend a fortune on seed and the cats get to watch the show at the feeders and everyone is happy.

Reviewer: California Woman
The squirrels were a real problem with my first one, which hung from a shepherd's crook. I now have a very tall bird-feeding station with a large baffle. As long as I keep the trees trimmed, the squirrels cannot access the station. I'm ordering a second feeder, because it was so popular with the birds in my yard.

The birds in my yard love this feeder, but unfortunately, so do the squirrels. I love the design of this feeder. It's so easy to fill and it folds flat to store.

This is a great bird feeder. Costs a little more then I would normally pay but it will last a very long time. The feed stays for the birds and not other animals.

Reviewer: Annie L. Watson
I was afraid this feeder wasn't going to do for me, because I have to bring feeders in at night to foil raccoons. Since this one is collapsible, I thought the seed would go all over the place when I moved it. It doesn't.
This feeder wouldn't work with all tiny seeds, though. They'd go right through, even if you didn't move the feeder. I'm using a mix that contains a fair percentage of sunflower seed.
Bronze Original Bird Feeder - Amazon Review October 21, 2012
This bird feeder is very solid. I hung it under my back patio. I didn't see any birds for about 6 days and then one morning I noticed one eating out of it. Since then he has come back and brought all his friends. I now have birds feeding out of this every day all day. Sometimes when it is windy some of the food blows out but all in all I am very happy with my purchase. I believe this purchase will last for many years to come and bring great enjoyment for me and the birds.
No/No original bird feeder - Amazon Review March 07, 2010
Reviewer: K. S. Methot
I purchased this feeder after squirrels destroyed a wooden feeder I was using to dispense sunflower seed. It's attractive and seems very durable, and while it doesn't keep squirrels from feeding, it's unlikely they can damage it. I like that the mesh design allows birds like chicadees to perch on the side instead of on the ring. And it holds a good amount of sunflower seed, so I'm not having to refill it every day or two. The one gripe I have is that the perch ring seems too close to the feeder, making it hard for cardinals to feed. They do use it, but only with a lot of wing flapping to keep their balance.
Feeding feathered friends - Amazon Review April 16, 2012
It holds some basic type seeds, however not the smaller seed for special type birds! Smart squirrels can maneuver the top, even though there is a gadget to hold it closed. The price was okay and I hope it lasts.
