Attracts wide variety of birds. seeds stay in feeder

  Amazon Review 

High quality bird feeder, holds a ton of sunflower seeds, and allows multiple birds to eat at the same time. It's a winner! Buying it at a fifty percent discount is great too!

  Amazon Review 

Birds love it. Easy to fill, seeds are not wasted, only what the birds pull out come out.

  Amazon Review 

This is a well constructed, functional bird feeder. Better with certain seeds. It was a gift for my sister. She's pleased.

  Amazon Review 

Love this product!! I have 2 of them. Recommend highly.

  Amazon Review 

I love this feeder. It holds so much. I have seen a squirrel on it a couple of times but since it's all metal, they can't chew it and break it. I can look out and see several birds on this at almost any given time. With my old cage feeders with plastic inner tubes, if a squirrel was on it, the birds stayed away. Now I've seen up to 7 birds eating at the same time.
I'm very happy with this one.

  Amazon Review, Love this birdfeeder! 

This bird feeder has several good points. It hold lots of seeds and the squirrels cannot get to them & neither can they chew holes in the feeder - it is definitely "squirrel proof". It will last forever also.

  Good feeder - Amazon Review 

I was looking for a bird feeder that would attract a variety of birds to entertain my son and my cat. At the same time I wanted the bird feeder to be durable and not to get gross after a rainfall. I settled for this one because of positive reviews, attractive look and implied solid construction. After looking around, I ended up buying it on Ebay for ~$18.

After using the bird feeder for over four months, I still really like it. Despite the reviews, I was initially worried about attracting a variety of birds because this feeder only takes sunflower seeds. However, I have seen many different birds at the feeder, ranging from cardinals to some small yellow birds. Its easy to fill and because the bottom is sloped from the center out, the seeds slide outward and don't tend to accumulate in the feeder. I fill it about half way, and the seed is gone in about a week. And even after it rains, the remaining seeds still get cleaned out afterwards.

Contrary to the name, squirrels have no problems getting the seeds out of the feeder and we've witnessed some squirrel fights over the pecking order. However, the squirrels really don't bother me - they need to eat too. If you don't want squirrels to eat your seed, just spray some hot sauce on the seeds/feeder or buy capsaicin-treated seeds. Mammals such as squirrels tend not to like capsaicin, which is the compound that makes chili peppers taste "hot." Birds, however, are not sensitive to capsaicin, so they won't care whether the seed has been treated with capsaicin or not.

  Can't beat it - Amazon Review 

We have three squirrels "from hell" One even started to chew our Anderson window in our kitchen--I think he was trying to get at our tomatoes. They are a real pain-but you have to admire how they use their brains. They can get on this feeder, but can only get one seed at a time. Seems like a lot of work to me-but not to them. The goldfinches love it and run around the ring to get the seed they like (I use three different kinds) Well made & sturdy.

  Watching the birds using this feeder right now - Amazon Review 

First day I have this up and the birds love it. They need to work a bit to get the seed out, but that is great, it is what should happen. I was a bit worried with some of the other reviews about birds not getting the seed, but it is great. Well made, and you can see as the seeds go down, so I will have no trouble knowing when to fill the container. Only slight problem which I will probably get used to is that it is a bit cumbersome to fill. It folds flat when it is not hanging so I cannot take it off the hanger to fill. The top needs to be lifted and filled, so it will take practice. Other than that, perfect! I am so glad I got this feeder.

  Original hourglass feeder is a hit - Amazon Review 

This wire mesh feeder can hold a lot of sunflower and other seeds and is unbaffled inside. It is solidly constructed, all metal, and the top and bottom plates are easily removed yet secure in use. The wire mesh is large enough for a variety of bird foods, if that is your desire. Birds went directly to the feeder after being hung.

Raccoons are not likely to damage this feeder. I'm hoping the black bears won't empty it.

The bottom tray has drain holes but if the feeder is full of seeds some moisture retention will probably result. Solution--don't fill it all the way or depend on heavy use by the birds to empty a full feeder in a matter of days. IMO an internal baffle would be a good option so that the seeds would appear nearly all the way to the top without actually having to fill the feeder. Of course a can could be placed inside to accomplish this and might be nice to do seasonally depending on the bird business.

The No No line of feeders are good values and nearly all our feeders are being replaced with their products.

  Raccoon proof by actual test - Amazon Review 

This bird feeder is very sturdily built and simple in design which are the primary reasons I bought it. At first glance I was thinking it's overpriced for alls I got. I wasn't thinking a raccoon could get to it on an extended deck hanger, but one did! Alls he managed to do was to pull one link of the metal slightly out of shape, but he did not get into it and I saw no other damage. I still think it is a bit overpriced, but again, proved to be sturdily built. I am still waiting to see how the intended guests will like it!

  Amazon Review 

Wonderful. Holds a lot of seed and is easy to fill. Attractive, and the birds love it.

  Amazon Review 

This feeder does prevent squirrels pretty well. For the first week I would see squirrels handing on to the feeder, trying to get seeds out. They must have been unsuccessful because its been 3 weeks and I haven't seen any more squirrels on it.

Here is what I like:
- Squirrels get frustrated and stop going to it
- Large capacity means I only refill it every 3 to 4 weeks
- Construction will easily last a life time.

My only complaint is that it advertises that the feeder can hold sunflower seeds or a mix of sunflower/safflower seeds. I wouldn't put safflower seeds in this at all. It's way too easy for safflower seeds to fall out. As is, when you fill the feeder with sunflower seeds and lightly tap the feeder, a few seeds will come out here and there. The problem is worse with safflower seeds, even when you mix safflower with sunflower seeds.

Over all I like this feeder and I would recommend it to anyone.

  Worth the money - Amazon Review 

It didn't take long for the birds to find it, including the grackles. It's easy to fill and holds a good amount. I've let it go empty now hoping the grackles will forget about it.

  Not what I expected 

Based on good reviews, I purchased the feeder, but because I did not read the "fine print", I bought the wrong kind of feeder. The fine print says the feeder should be filled with sunflower seeds, not small seeds such as millet, which comprises about 90% of the kind of seed I buy to use in a song bird tube feeder. Therefore, small seeds fall through the mesh anytime the feeder is disturbed. So, read the full description of any feeder you buy or you could make the same kind of mistake that I did. I am sure the hour-glass feeder is quite suitable for large seeds.
