Squirrels (3) Humans (0)
I really loved this charming feeder when my husband came home with it. I was excited that we might finally have some great bird action at a feeder the squirrels couldn’t get at. Sadly though, Squirrel proof is not ultimately how I would describe this feeder. First the squirrels figured out that by turning the adorable weathervane at the top that they could open the roof. After finding the roof on the grass twice, my husband brought the feeder inside and inserted a small nut and bolt into the roof securing it better. This seemed to work until the squirrels figured out they could hang from the roof, therefore not activating the bar that closes the access to the seeds. But that wasn’t enough for those greedy hungry rats with better outfits. Nope. They decided having to work for these seeds was too much. So they pushed in the front window and took it all. They robbed the feeder of about 3lbs of seed before we discovered it. I really wanted to love this feeder but it failed miserably. Now we’re trying to repair the damage and see if we can secure the window and get it back out there but I’m disappointed overall.

Birds won’t feed from it
I bought two of these feeders, a green one and the red one. The only birds that come to it are house finches. I have many birds usually but lost all of my feeders in an ice storm when the limbs fell on them. Definitely disappointed as I thought the larger size would be great and require less maintenance. Squirrels who are usually very smart have not gotten into them yet. I did hang the feeder side away from the pole. So far very disappointed but they look great.

Fantastic feeder. Have had this for about 4 weeks and could not be happier. I have many squirrels around my house, and they are always going after my bird feeder. I have tried many "squirrel proof" feeders with little success. This feeder works great as long as you hang it so the feeding side is far enough away from a pole, tree or other place those nasty squirrels can rest their back legs on to get at the feed area. If they put any weight on the feeder bar, it closes and they get nothing! We are having so much fun watching them try to get at the feed, only to slide off the metal roof or hang on to the feeder bar and eventually have to let go. The capacity of the feeder is great and now that the squirrels can't get at the food, I only need to refill it every 2 weeks compared to every 2 days. The bar adjustment is a great feature and allows me to chose the size birds I want at the feeder. Only suggestion is once you select the spring location on the bar, lock it in place and cover the other slots so birds don't get there legs / feet caught. Another reviewer suggested this as he had some birds injured. I used aluminum tape and it works great (see left side of feeder bar in attached picture). My wife was so impressed with this product, she had me get one for her boss for Christmas.

The roof is not long enough
The seed gets really wet and starts to get moldy. I noticed that the roof is not long enough. The water just rolls back in.

It leaks like crazy
I didn't realize it until it was too late to return. It leaks from where you fasten the roof and ruins the seed. It made a nasty mess at the bottom to the point that birds couldn't reach the good seed. I just thought the birds were adjusting to the new feeder, but they just couldn't eat from it.

We're sorry to hear that this occurred, when the roof is secured tightly, water should not leak into the feeder. Please contact us directly at 855-737-5973 for assistance, we're happy to help!

pretty good but.....
I've had this feeder for about 4 months. it works well at keeping squirrels out however, smaller animals like chipmunks or even small squirrels will figure out a way to get at the seed. they hang from the roof, even have one foot on the hopper and manage to get at the seed. Better yet, i'm writing this review because i just came in from outside and found three mice inside the bird feeder gorging themselves. i have no idea how they got in, the roof was on correctly, i will have to have a closer look tomorrow. overall i like it, it's well built, it looks great and the birds love it. i just need to figure out how to deter the other animals.....

I have the feeder mounted on a pole with a squirrel shield below that is effective so I cannot report on the effectiveness of the feeder against squirrels. The feeder allows up to four small birds to feed at the same time (usually it's 2-3) or one larger bird (grackles, cardinals, red-wing blackbirds, bluejays,...) because they need to perch sideways to the feeder openings. The adjustable spring allows you to have the feeder openings obstructed when the total weight on the perch increases. The larger, heavier, birds will cause the feeder to begin closing up depending upon the spring setting and bird weight. One problem being experienced is the spring being bumped out of the desired setting slot, possibly by the larger birds, causing the perch to be at it's most sensitive setting. The design of the feeder reduces the amount of seeds being sifted to the ground by birds looking for specific seeds using multiple narrow openings. The birds cannot stand on the smooth metal roof except for the locking mechanism so there is less droppings to clean off of the feeder. I removed the hanger, since it is pole mounted; however, I may put it back on or close up the holes in the sides of the feeder.

The product is reasonably well made and should give years of service as a bird and squirrel feeder. That's right, it is emphatically not squirrel proof. In less than 1 day, the squirrels had figured out how to get the lid off the feeder and now they sit nicely in the feeder eating the seed. I have to put the lid back on several times per day and I'm looking for a way to keep it clamped on. And before you ask, I'm using hot pepper laced seed that squirrels are supposed to hate. My squirrels don't seem to notice the hot pepper or else they love it. In under a week 11 squirrels have met their demise while dining on bird food. As a bird feeder, it's great but don't think for a moment it's squirrel proof. They don't sit on the front (which is squirrel resistant) they take the lid off and sit inside.
