The "Gazebo" - Absolutely the best feeder we've ever had - and a fantastic bargain for the price! We use the pole-mounting feature found underneath the feeder. It's positioned on an 8-foot metal conduit with a squirrel baffle below - about 2 feet from the feeder. Simply secure it with some outdoor silicon sealant. Totally fool-proof! We've named the feeder: "The Sky Bar," in tribute to a watering-hole located on the bridge at Puumala, Finland
Best feeder ever February 17, 2012
I've been using these feeders for 6 years. I've gone through maybe 6 - 8 in those years, because the squirrels eat from them too and they chew on the openings to make them bigger, and eventually the bottom falls off. I learned over the years not to fight the squirrels (I love the little guys anyway) and to put out more than one feeder, and everyone -- birds and squirrels -- share the feeders, often all at the same time. It makes for great wildlife watching to see everyone sharing, and a lot of fun to see some of the larger birds like jays, crows, and flickers try awkwardly to get their big bodies in the right position to grab a bite. These feeders are inexpensive enough that buying new ones every 18 months or so is not a problem, and they hold the right amount of seed for a day's feeding so that I don't usually have to worry about taking them down for the night to keep the raccoons from destroying them. The solid bottom perch is good for keeping seed and nuts in reach of everyone, and the strong wire hanger is indestructible. The feeders are easy to fill, no complicated open/close system, so that helps in winter and in the rain when I'm in a rush to get out of the weather. These feeders are also attractive and blend in well with the foliage.

Faithful Feeder October 11, 2011
I couldn't believe it when I found this feeder online! When I purchased it if I remember correctly, it was the only one available. I haven't seen another one like it for years! This faithful feeder has been through a lot in five years, but always held its own! No matter what the weather, from hot and steamy days to insane ice storms, this little feeder has braved it all, and to this day, the top has never broken open nor has the feeder itself fell down. The steel loop attached to the feeder goes through the roof and down to the bottom, so when I open the top to refill, I know it will never blow away or get lost. Plus, the top locks tight and is even a little hard to open, which makes it totally squirrel-proof! As an added bonus, the price makes this an amazing buy! So if you want a durable feeder for less, than this is the one!

This feeder is a great buy. You can't beat the price and all sorts of birds feed from it. I have bought several over the last few years.
