Squirrels try, but they finally give up trying to extract the sunflower seeds, on which the intended beneficiaries dine with gusto.
Bird Magnet, Amazon Review May 27, 2013
Reviewer: Duffer. "Bo"
I bought this to add some color to my bird feeder array. I bought the green one as well and the birds are having a great time with both of them. This feeder is easy to fill and I used black sunflower seeds. The bird feeder pole is squirrel proof so they cannot get close to the feeders. There is some small amount of seed that does fall out of the feeder and since it does not have a tray the squirrels get to eat the seeds that drop to the ground. This is a fun feeder and the price is modest.
Great Birdfeeder, Amazon Review May 15, 2013
This bird feeder is great for sunflower seeds and it's size makes it easy to hang anywhere. Best of all the birds love it!
Love This Feeder, Amazon Review May 10, 2013
Reviewer: Fiona L. Bagley "Fiona L...."
Great value and a great product.Always have a lot of little birds clinging to it. Took them a couple of days but once they found it they were all over the thing : )
Sweet, Amazon Review May 03, 2013
Such a sweet little (and yet roomy) feeder. Even the goldfinches love it. Could have a better hanging hook and more secure lid.
Wild Bird Feeder, Amazon Review April 24, 2013
Reviewer: Dolores Davison
This feeder is very nice. I put black oil sunflower seeds in it. The top comes on and off with a little spring action. I have had an amazing amount of beautiful birds eating from it.
Unfortunately, it also attracted some squirrels who tried to eat from it and my other feeders. I put Vaseline on the pole to the feeders and stopped the squirrels from eating my expensive seed.
The Red Seed Ball is a great product. I recommend it to everyone.
Great product, Amazon Review March 12, 2013
Reviewer: S. Bowen "anygivenday"
Very different and I like being the first one on the block to have one.....gotta be the kid in me. The birds love it. The small ones wil perch and the large ones take a grab for the "golden ring" as they fly by. I have not seen one squrriel on it they have tried but fall off and give up then forage the ground for goodies. I have had this about a month and no problem with the lid coming off.
Birds Love It!, Amazon Review March 05, 2013
This feeder is easy to fill , has a unique appearance and very attractive. The birds found it very quickly and look like they enjoy hanging on it to feed. I have only had it a few days and already they've eaten half the seeds! It made a nice addition to my other 2 feeders and I would highly recommend it to anyone!!
No/No Seed Ball Feeder, Amazon Review February 25, 2013
Reviewer: Georgette K. Tripp
This has brought many hours of fun - it is almost squirrel proof - the birds really love it - it is the second one I have purchased - I have shared this find with my granddaughters!
Green seed ball - Amazon Review November 13, 2012
Reviewer: Donna J. Lancaster
Love the seed ball, watching the chickadees and other small birds land on it. The only thing I don't like is the cover on the top pulls right off and is very easy for the squirrels to get in to...
If they could have make that a bit tighter it would be 100% perfect.
Birds love it! - Amazon Review November 07, 2012
Works well. A big hit with finches and chickadees. A bit on the small size, the birds empty it in no time, easily solved by adding more :-)
Excellent feeder! - Amazon Review December 24, 2011
Reviewer: L. Null
This feeder is easy to fill, easy to clean, and easy for the birds to use. The holes are just the right size for sunflower seeds (some do seem to slip through when filling it). I was worried that the ring used to pull open the feeder was flimsy, but so far, no problems.
Ball feeder - Amazon Review August 13, 2011
Reviewer: Z "Z"
This small and inexpensive feeder is well designed and is perfect for sunflower seeds. It was quickly accepted and enjoyed by pine siskins and nuthatches. A chain hanger and hook is built onto it and the chain can be wrapped around a medium sized limb then secured to guard against dislodging by raccoons. The filler hole at the top is a press-fit metal cap which seems secure and allows a refill without having to take down the feeder.
Entertaining - Amazon Review October 26, 2010
Reviewer: Janet K. May
It is a great feeder to watch the birds. They hang upside down and it will get 4 or more birds on it at one time. A great investment.
Great Product, Amazon Review June 29, 2013
Reviewer: JamesFin "JamesFin"
The birds love it. It is sturdy, well made, and attractive. A good seed feeder for little friends, and easy to fill and use.
Great for sunflower seeds!, Amazon Review May 17, 2013
Reviewer: Nancy L. Crow
The squirrels don't seem to be bothering this, as the seed lasts a while. My only dilike is that you need to use decent size sunflower seed, or it falls through to the ground too easily. Cardinals love it!! I think it's a nice feeder for the price.
Great Little Feeder!, Amazon Review April 28, 2013
Reviewer: Doggie Lover
Only flaw is that the top is easily removed by squirrels and such. Also hook where it hands could have more of en extended curve to it, to help it stay in original hanging spot.
attracts lots of birds - Amazon Review April 16, 2013
Reviewer: Amy G "Amy G."
i bought 2 of these and so far they work great and hold up well unfortunately the squrrels have figured out how to take the top off and climb in side so the seeds don't last as long as they did at first. I would still reccomend this product.
Satisfied., Amazon Review April 04, 2013
Reviewer: bob vanhoy
Came on time and packaged well. Seems to work fine and the birds love it. Hard to find right size feed.
nice feeder and squirrels love it, Amazon Review March 27, 2013
I like the way the feeder looks and it is easy to hang. However, it has become a major squirrel feeder for me. They hang upside down on it and grab the seeds. I get about 4 squirrels for every bird.
This is a great bird feeder!, Amazon Review January 15, 2013
Reviewer: Happy in NY
This holds a good deal of seed and the birds love it! The color against the green foliage is great!
Excellent New Addition to the Backyard - Amazon Review January 15, 2012
Reviewer: R. Knowlton
These are a great addition to my existing feeders. I bought three. Metal throughout. The mesh is stout enough that I'm not worried about damaging it under normal use. The paint job appears thick enough to last for many years. The ball holds more seed than I thought: It holds just as much as my full-size single tube Droll Yankees feeder. I only use small to medium sized black oil sunflower seeds and have no problem with the ball losing seed. (Note: this is not meant for use with small seed like "mixed" bird feed. It'll just run right through the mesh.) In fact, while filling it, I probably have only about 15 seeds that fall out before the ball is fully filled. The included chain is about 10" long and has an S hook on the end.
One concern. The lid snaps into place nicely, but a squirrel might be able to get it off if he tries (-1 star). Instead of having it disappear in the grass below, I'm going to tie on a small tether. I would have preferred to see a built-in metal tether of some sort to keep from losing the lid. That way, I wouldn't have to find a pocket to put the lid in (or set in on the ground and lose it!) while I'm filling the ball.
Update: Yes, I've discovered that fox squirrels easily pop the lid off this thing and I almost stepped on it one time while refilling. Going forward, a little string tether will be standard equipment on mine.
Clinging birds appreciate the feeder and the bigger birds leave it alone.
Goodbye squirrels, Amazon Reviews July 26, 2013
The unique shape and color is eye catching. It appears to be squirrel proof at a fraction of the cost of the 'squirrel proof' feeders.
It is also enjoyable to see several birds cling to the circle at the same time.
pros and cons September 17, 2014
The small birds do love this (chickadees, nuthatches, downies, finches), but the seed falls out easily and attracts rodents below, and worse, because it isn't protected, the seed gets soaked in rain or snow and clumps together. Cheap but not worth it.
