Questions & Answers

Q:Why don't the birds like it? I'm using good food. I have it set on the top setting. They haven't used it once! They prefer the cheaper feeders

Answer This Question

A:  I found that this feeder is best when it is under a tree.  I am not sure if the sun heats the seed up too much. My present house has no trees in the back yard.  I had to move it to the front and I got lots of birds

by|Sep 21, 2022

    A:  It is not true. I have been using it for almost a year now and use feeder for red cardinals. My feeder is always busy with red cardinals mostly and some blue colored birds and small birds. I love it. I think it is what you offer to the birds which matters.

            Answer This Question

            A:  Yes, if you set it correctly.

            by|Jun 1, 2023

              A:  You can adjust it to handle various weights to a certain degree

              by|May 26, 2022

              A:  The weight activated perch can be adjusted for lighter or heavier squirrels. We have not specifically tested it for larger birds such as black birds. The sensitivity may need to be adjusted to see if it will close for larger birds.

                          it _was_ a nice bird feeder!
                          Well, it was nice while it lasted. Attractive. Reasonably sturdy. Required the addition of a squirrel baffle - apparently our squirrels have a higher IQ than the Perky-Pet test squirrels. Despite some reviewer's comments, seed seemed to stay dry in rain storms. Flimsy roof was easily removed by a mother and her juvenile-deliquent son (see picture).

                            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 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.

                                    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.
