Customer Questions & Answers

Is it possible to hang a seed saucer from the bottom center of this feeder?

Is there enough clearance at the bottom CENTER (not the perches but in the center of the main body) of this feeder to drill two holes and loop a piece of wire/nylon string to hand a seed saucer from? Or is there anything already there to attach a loop of string? The weight of the seed saucer is about 1.5 lbs. Thanks.
Asked by: PdxBirdman
I don't see any easy way to attach a seed saucer to it. The perch piece also covers the bottom of the feeder, so if you attached any weight to it, it might close off the feeder openings. (But I haven't tested it to see how much weight is needed to do that.) There are 4 TINY nuts attached to tiny screws that come thru the bottom piece from the (invisible) top. There are also two spots indicated for UNdrilled holes, so there is room to drill holes, but it might be difficult to thread a wire thru them unless you disassemble the whole thing (which I haven't done).

The feeder is well made, sturdy and easy to fill/clean. I notice that it slows the blackbirds from getting the food as they are unable to easily get under the cone. And, it definitely prevented a squirrel from accessing the food.

This is one of the few birdfeeders I've used over the last couple of years that really does keep squirrels from bothering it. It is favored by mostly smaller birds (chickadees, titmice, goldfinch) rather than larger ones. Many of the larger birds prefer to eat off the ground or from a platform feeder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bird Shelter Squirrel proof feeder I'm constantly fighting the squirrels for everything from bird feed to my garden so finding something that works is great. I've had 4 "squirrel proof" feeders they've managed to eat their way into (plastic yet!) but, they really can't get into this feed in the feeder. There are teeth marks on the metal top where they've tried - but only success they have is tilting the feeder so that some feed falls out on the ground. Great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Birds do not like it either... The bird seed gets stuck in the small openings and they won't use this feeder. The squirrels cannot get into the feed so that part works well but the birds don't like it at all. We changed out the seed several times but the birds don't seem to want to duck under the shield to eat and they all flock to the other feeders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy This This the only bird feeder that will keep squirrels off 100%. The only negative is it should be bigger to hold more seed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really squirrel-proof Little birds love it. Squirrels can't get to it or into it, they just eat whatever's fallen on the ground and get their fare share. The feeder is a bit small for beautiful birds like red robins or cardinals to get in, but they also come to eat on the ground.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from plus and minus The idea of a cover to keep food dry was good but this one is too narrow and only a few bird attempted to go under it to get to the seed. Any sudden movement or noise that would frighten birds makes them crash into the cover when they are trying to fly away. I ended up taking a hammer and breaking the cover (no other way to get it off) but so far the birds are still wary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat the squirrels! I ordered this birdfeeder a couple of weeks ago, as a replacement for one I had for several years. I had purchased the first one at a local hardware store but could not get it this year - don't know why. It is a terrific feeder and is the ONLY one I have found for which the squirrels cannot get the seed!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
