Great find!

My friend has one and recommended it to me to help with squirrel issues. I bought one and love it! It's well made, too. No more squirrels getting into the bird food. I highly recommend it to others.

Dangerous to Birds

Quick Sum: The coating is falling off - and it’s toxic if eaten; it has exposed ends of wire, which potentially could wound the birds; and a random loop of wire within the feeder could catch a bird’s foot. This feeder is a hazard. More Explanation: The green plastic covering was coming off the cage’s wires in several areas - some pieces falling into the platform of the cage. These pieces of plastic would be toxic if ingested by a bird. In certain places, where the wire was cut off to provide a larger opening for the birds, the green plastic had come off, exposing a blunt, wired, edge that could easily wound a bird. And last, within the feeder, along the inner edge of the platform was a small wire looping outwards (still connected) into the area where the birds perch and eat. A bird’s legs could be caught, or they may try to pull on it. This feeder scares me. I absolutely would not recommend this feeder.

Pretty good

I was looking for a feeder that would hold meal worms but keep large birds out. This works well for that. However there doesn’t seem to be a way to open it up completely for cleaning; it’s a bit tricky. It’s satisfactory but could be better.

Great for keeping out Doves and Pigeons!

The doves and pigeons were previously causing a mess and eating the majority of the seed preventing the smaller songbirds and cardinals from getting their fill. The big birds still hang around, but can't get in the feeder. Success! I also like the platform design as very little seed falls to the ground with the exception of thistle or if it is very windy. The bottom of the feeder is a screen mesh to prevent moisture from accumulating - but this also allows very small seed to fall through. Overall - it is working well.

It works

I bought this feeder a few weeks ago to prevent the mourning doves from eating all the bird seed and preventing access to the many cardinals we have in the area. I had my doubt that it would work, but the cardinals access the cage to eat the bird seed and the doves cannot get inside to the bird seed. Also, one night raccoons pulled the feeder from it's pole onto the ground and due to it's sturdy construction the feeder incurred no damage. It works great and going to buy a second one.

Reinforcing/replacing bottom mesh

After having this feeder for a week squirrels have been putting holes underneath it and feeding off the seeds from that if you can put a stronger mesh underneath it it should be impenetrable for squirrel teeth I have an example under the one I repaired (bowl for squirrel deturent)

Tucson Platform Bird Feeder

Very nice large yet lightweight bird feeder. May need to get a rain cover for it though.

Had a couple feeders, but they were often swamped by grackles and mourning doves. Worse, the doves would just stay put forever and peck at any other birds that tried to share food. I tried a couple other caged feeders, but this design was finally the perfect balance to allow cardinals and smaller species inside, while keeping the grackles and doves limited to another open tray feeder. Everybody's happy.

This is great!

We've had grackles hanging around all summer and keeping away the chickadees and titmouses (titmice?), etc. and this feeder has foiled them. Little birds seem to fly through the openings like magic. It has a large capacity and a double screen bottom so it even hangs on to millet. The spaces are too small for cardinals, but I still like it.

Tucson small bird feeder

I purchased this because I needed something to keep out the larger birds like pigeons. A couple of reviews stated that some of the cut portions of the wire were sharp and could cut the birds but happily this has not happened to my birds. The construction on the feeder is excellent, strong and sturdy. I've been using it for several months and find it easy to shake out the shells from the birdseeds and clean it with water. There are a few things I wish could have been changed to improve this feeder. For example, The chains used to hold the feeder if you were to hang it could have been made removable for people like me who just place it on a table. My husband was able to remove them using a plier. I would have also preferred that the cage portion be made removable so food could also be place in a bowl or plate instead of directly onto the floor of the feeder or perhaps have one door which could be open that would be large enough for an adult hand to fit to be able to make cleaning easier. One other topic to bring up. Reading on line it says that it takes a few days to a couple of weeks for the birds to get used to eating from the feeder. Well, it took a couple of months for me but never give up. Just put the feeder near your current feeding station and leave it there for several days. Then, move it to another location for several more days. The birds must feel that the new object is safe. I kept moving it closer and closer over a few weeks, from the gound to the chairs then finally onto the tabletop with their plate of food next to it and also added more bird food inside the new feeder. It took a while longer but finally, one brave bird entered the cage and now families of birds visit several times a day and enjoy a substantial meal. And because the pigeons figured out that they cannot get to the food, they no longer stop by. All in all, this Tucson feeder does exactly what it says it will do and because I feel it will last a long time, is worth the cost.
