Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cathy Not as good as older version
The dark color of this version has the birds slightly confused, so I had to paint the "leaves" and the perches. The wire extends too high into the top shield, pushing it down over the openings, so only the smallest birds can sit on the perches and get anything out. I may have to modify the whole assembly in order for it to be more like the previous version that I've owned for decades. That unit finally succumbed to a young light-weight squirrel who figured out how to minimize the dropping of the cage and chewed the plastic to the point of no return. I would only recommend this product because it usually works as described, but I REALLY wish I could get an exact replacement for my old one!

I like this feeder...on my third one as the squirrels eventually destroy them :) Gotta love those little guys. But I do like them as they are pretty and the little birds just cover them up some times. The thing I don't like are the little springs, as they wear out and pop and the whole thing is useless. I buy another one and save the parts so I can do repairs hehe.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by trini It is NOT squirrel proof this product is false
This Bird feeder does not live up to the claim of being squirrel proof the squirrels chase away the birds and feeds all day on the bird seed sitting on the top and hanging off the top of the bird feeder and holds on the feeder hugging the entire feeder

This bird feeder is wonderful. Our birds have been flocking to it so much that we purchased another one for another area of the yard. It's so pretty and the birds just adore it!

The squirrels in my yard figured this feeder out in about a week. They would climb on the lid, then dangle down the side, hang onto the grill and eat the seed out of the feeding holes. I bought two of these feeders, excited that they would solve my squirrel problem, but alas they are a total loss. I also had to replace the spring on one of the feeders twice, not an easy feat. The grill on each feeder goes up and down as designed and in theory should thwart squirrels, but this simply isn't the case. Note that the feeder only serves small birds. I have lots of cardinals that sit in the bushes and yell at me, wishing they could enjoy the sunflower seeds in the feeder. I suspect that most of the positive responses are from people who submitted their reviews before the squirrels had a chance to assess the problem. My squirrels didn't have to chew their way in, as some reviewers have said -- my squirrels fed right from the feeding holes. I tried adding some spikes on the sides, using strapping tape and roofing nails, but the nails pressed down too easily. Since the feeding holes are so low, perhaps the design could be modified somehow to keep the squirrels from clinging to the sides? Alas, it is back to the drawing board for me and with my wallet about $30 lighter.

Squirrels are clever but too greedy for their own good. I have had squirrels chew down the top of the seed canister to loosen the spring mechanism. Eventually the seed level would get too low and they end up falling into the feeder. I had two of these feeders on a shepherds pole in the middle of the yard with baffles and they still got to it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Toothdoc1 Good idea, execution of construction questionable
Squirrel proof was what we were looking for. The idea seemed to be good. However , the construction is poor. It did keep the squirrels from getting the bird seed, until they learned to hang on the bottom of the feeder and pull it off dumping ALL the seed on the ground.
