Recommend with reservations!

This is a great feeder in that the birds like it and often fight over the 4 perches. But sadly this squirrel resistant feeder has been ruined by the crafty squirrels (CS). I’ve only had it 3 1/2 months and it is done. Despite having a baffle above it (hanging from a tree) our very CSs have learned to jump on the cage. The weight of the CSs wasn’t closing the cage and I asked Chewy if the spring could be made more sensitive but despite chewy reaching out to the manufacturer they didn’t get a response. I hung fishing weights on it which helped but those same CRAFTY SQUIRRELS chewed the plastic and now the seed spills out. We baffle the squirrels and they baffle us right back. CS: 783 Us: 782 Back to the drawing board. If your place to use this feeder is not near other trees or shrubs that could be used by your own CSs to jump to the feeder you will love this feeder.

Squirrels: 1, Feeder: 0

It's a nice bird feeder but squirrels have decimated ours. The sliding cover to lock the seeds works but if squirrels can reach it, consider an out of the way place to hang it or spend more on a more durable feeder. Our experience mostly echoes what other reviewers have said. The feeder needs to be completely out of reach for squirrels. Squirrels have dangled upside down from the top of the feeder, Mission-Impossible style to get at the seeds. They swing it enough to get seeds to pour out and have also broken off the green, metal pieces at the seed holes. We have repaired it enough with duct tape to be functional again but just bought a taller pole and hope that solves the problem. Smaller seeds aren't recommended as they fall out easily. Fill the feeder carefully as seed debris gets in the hinge and latch on opposite sides of the opening, making it difficult to open and close. We've tried to get all of it out but still have issues. Birds don't seem to have an issue getting to the seed and our cats get great entertainment from watching them feed.

Works Great!

#ChewyTeamRated I got this bird feeder hoping that it actually would work and it did. Keeps squirrels out of the food and the birds can still easily access it. Wonderful product!

Great for finches and cardinals

This is a great feeder for finches. I get SWARMS of house finches. Cardinals can also use this feeder (the perch is a little small for them but they don't exceed the weight limit). Blue jays cannot use this--I've seen them try. I also have a ton of black eastern grey squirrels in my area and they also cannot use this feeder. I've seen them try to hang upside-down without success. I have this on a Shepard's hook and no baffle added. I personally do not mind jays or squirrels so I also have safflower seeds for the larger birds and peanuts in the shells for the squirrels. I mostly wanted to keep out the non-native bully birds who were draining my feeders, like pigeons and European starlings. I've only ever filled this with black oil sunflower seeds. I'd be concerned that smaller seeds would fall out. This is very easy to refill and fairly easy to clean with a bottle brush.

Squirrel proof bird feeder

Like the feeder. Easy to fill and keeps the squirrel out. Only problem I have is the feeder does not hold a lot.

Fat Squirrels.

I love the looks of this feeder, but it is not squirrel proof! Our wild birds like it but so do our gray squirrels. I filled this feeder with a good mix bird food and the first time I went to check on it, a big fat squirrel was sitting at the base of the pole. I ran him off but 30 minutes later, he had completely emptied the feeder. It is too far from the fence or any trees for a direct jump onto the feeder, but they can still climb on! I guess I'll just have wild birds and fat squirrels!!

I love this feeder, and so do the birds, however, the squirrels broke mine! They somehow managed to remove one of the seed guards around one of the holes, and now the seed pours out of the hole. Well I contacted Chewy on another matter, and mentioned it. Being the wonderful company they are, they're sending me a replacement. I will try again with this feeder because the birds love it so much. They line up on my lilac bush to be next! Lol.

Great Bird Feeder

We have just regular open hole feeders which the squirrels love. This one is doing a much better job cutting down on our buffet cost!!!

Good low priced feeder - needs squirrel baffle

Pros: easy to fill, larger size & multiple perches helped attract larger birds like blue jays & cardinals when filled with black sunflower seeds (per another reviewer, smaller seeds will fall out quickly) Cons: not as squirrel-proof as my (more expensive) Squirrel Buster feeder (see photo) Overall, I think this is fixable with a larger baffle and will still be a cheaper option than the Squirrel Buster.

This feeder works fine for black oil sunflowers which is why I would recommend. However, DO NOT USE SMALL MILLET SEEDS. They get stuck in the latching mechanism and prevent it from closing properly. Chewy was amazing and sent me another feeder and I’ve had no problems going forward just using black oil sunflowers. Just stay away from any kind of small seeds.
