About This Item

Details

  • Features six feeding ports, with U-shaped perches for birds to rest on.
  • The feeding ports have sturdy metal perches that allow birds to feed comfortably.
  • When the squirrels perch, their weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and their access to the seed.
  • The interior seed tower is surrounded by rustic metalwork and boasts a two-pound seed capacity.
  • The clear, shatter-proof plastic reservoir makes it easy to monitor seed levels.

how do i load feeder
Answer by ChewyApr 08, 2018
To fill the feeder, you must first remove the metal cover located at the top and you can proceed to fill the container. Once completed, replace the metal cover to secure it.

How do I take this feeder apart to clean it?
Answer by ChewySep 10, 2018
The lid of this feeder can be removed. To wash the feeder, use a mild soap and water solution.

Will this prevent bigger birds from getting to the seed?
Answer by ChewyApr 23, 2018
Weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and access to the seeds so bigger birds will not be able to perch on this feeder.

what country is this made in?
Answer by ChewyNov 21, 2018
This bird feeder is made in China.

Would Not Recommend

Disappointed. We thought it was great at first, but then the squirrels quickly destroyed it. They try to get in it & the springs are too flimsy. So now it hangs too low & the holes are covered so the birds can’t eat. It also got wet inside & seeds went moldy & even started sprouting. We lost a lot of bird seed & now this feeder & bird seed go in the trash. Waste.

Best squirrel-proof birdfeeder ever

Take that, you squirrels! I just bought my third and fourth feeder of this type. I don't hate squirrels but I don't want them stealing the little birds' food. This is the only feeder I've ever used that keeps them out. When a squirrel puts his weight on the perch it pulls the spring-loaded cage down and blocks the feeding ports, but even when little birds fill all six perches the ports remain open. Pretty funny to watch the squirrels clench their little fists and use bad language when their evil plans are foiled. Easy to fill from the top and with my current bird population one fill lasts a day.

Great Birdfeeder

This is my favorite feeder. I use two in our yard. The Birdfeeder saves a lot of the bird feed from being thrown to the ground. It helps to prevent damage from the squirrels and the birds love it.

Too sensitive

The springs are too springy, and no one can feed from this feeder. This is the second one I purchased, the first one didn't have this issue. I have tired to adjust the springs, so we shall see.

This is a product that works

I love this birdfeeder. The birds can get the seed, but it can be adjusted soi that squirrels and, especially, light-weight chipmunks, can't. Chewy made ordering it easy.

Nice Feeder but Squirrels Broke It

Nice, reasonable priced feeder and worked well at first. However, squirrels broke the spring that holds the top on it within a couple of weeks. They stole the top so I can't find it to try to repair it.

Almost perfect

Feeder is a great size, hold a lot of feed and is easy to fill...however...two problems that have required some Macgyvering on my part. 1) The roof and the tube cap do not form a perfect seal up top, so rain does get in and the seed gets moldy. I had to take a plastic lid and rig a rain shield to cover the gap, which did the trick. 2) re the spring system (squirrel deterrent) you may want to use a slightly stronger gauge spring. I noticed that when birds (sparrow sized) try to feed at more than three ports, that is enough weight to lower the system enough so that they can't get their heads into the ports. I've shortened the springs a bit for less of a drop...a stronger spring would still be effective against the weight of a rodent, but not impact the birds. With just some slight reconfiguring, this would be 5* feeder. And then I would recommend to a friend.

Horrible product

This product is poorly made and only lasted 3 days before the squirrels completely destroyed it. The springs are flimsy and keep coming loose. Absolutely disappointed with this purchase

Squirrels still got the seed!

This feeder claims to keep out squirrels, but it doesn't. The placement of the very thin metal "leaves" on this feeder are half covering the ports and that is without any kind of pressure on the cage. Yup, my boys just climber up and hung the feeder and emptied the entire feeder as well as chewed the plastic ports. And this feeder holds a lot of seed! I ended having to place the feeder else where other than the feeder poles I also bought. As for the birds, I easily bent the leaves to open the access ports for the birds to get the seed inside. A bit disappointed with this purchase. Not Chewy's fault, just a bad design.

Not squirrel proof

As you can see from my photo, the squirrels love this feeder
