It's made well but the seeds won't come down into the the feeder part. Anyone have any ideas? I have to go out and shake it so they come down.

Does not work. Will exchange for another..After feeding trough is closed by weight on the perch spring is not strong enough to re-open.

It can keep the squirrel's away, but apparently the birds don't like it either! We used to have lots of birds of all varieties with our old feeder, but now they are all gone except for a very few chickadees. There is only one side for the birds to eat from and there is not enough overhang from the roof to keep rain from getting into the feeding tray. It just does not seem to be a totally good design for ease of attachment to a mounting post. The post mounting attachment protrudes up into the bird feeder versus projecting downward from the bottom of the feeder (with a set-screw installed in the exterior mounting projection). We're still looking for a good feeder...

I wanted a bird feeder that was updated from my 20 year old one & that would not allow squirrels to get into it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guvnobob Almost sqirrel proof, but there is no such thing
This feeder holds the most amount of feed of any squirrel proof bird feeder that I've seen and I own quite a few. This is the best one at being squirrel proof that I've found. . The only slight negative is that there is a tiny hotizontal gap between the bottom front ot the storage bin and the closed hopper shield. Squirrels will figure that one out, so far they haven't. To totally squirrel proof any pole feeder, put a six inch, six foot piece of stove pipe over the pole. They can't climb the stove pipe. Now if I could only find a feeder that is raccoon proof. Those rascals will pick a feeder up, throw it to the ground and then tear it apart..

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GaryF Filling it is cumbersome
1) Our two feeders hang from the poles we already had. To fill them you need to remove the whole feeder by lifting the cable so that the loop at the top disengages. For this I need to use a ladder. I also must use the ladder when lifting the filled feeder back up to re-engage the loop.
2) I wish the lid was wider and deeper because filling it with 12 lbs. of seed is easier if you can just pour it from the pail or bag. To avoid spillage while filling, you're best served by using a funnel.
3) Because it hangs from a single cable, it can rotate in the wind. This means that sometimes you do not get to "see the show" because the perch is on the side away from your view.

My squirrels loved this feeder. Althought it was hanging 15' below the tree limb on chain, they were able to leap onto the roof and pry off the lid. The result was a feeder hanging off center with squirrels digging into the hopper for a very tasty meal. I have drilled holes in the roof and lid in order to secure the lid with wire. It has been 24 hours, and it appears that the squirrels may have been stymied by this kluge fix. I like the capacity and look of the feeder, but was extremely disappointed that those pesky rodents were able to defeat the design.
