Review Rateflawed feeder
terrible feeder, the seed tray is not sheltered and when it rains the seeds harden and have to be dug out with your finger and I also find a tray full of empty hulls that have to be emptied out. Not sure why this happens, but it's definitely a feeder with design flawsResponse From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the feedback and regret that the desired results were not seen.
Using a hulled or shelled seed can reduce the amount of mess that birds will leave behind from some seeds. If the weather will cause the seed to become saturated, we recommend temporarily removing a feeder or moving it to a more sheltered location.

Let me put it to you this way....kept the squirrells off it. But was no match for 3 black bears last Monday morning....lol
Review RateGood enough for now.
The birds love this feeder & the squirrels finally gave up once we moved it away from all possible jumping points.
Review RateMore like Squirrel Be Feasting
Took the squirrels less than 48 hours to figure out how to prop themselves up on the wheel that adjusts the tension and reach around and get seed. Greasing the wheel didn't deter. We also were mindful to make sure that the locking cap for the top was activated, but on the second day we found a squirrel INSIDE the feeder feasting away. Numerous times we chased it out, relocked it and would find the critter back inside within the hour. We had also ordered safflower seed as recommended but that hasn't stopped them, neither has pepper. Considering a falcon for the next step in our battle......jk
Review RateBirds love it! Squirels love it more
Nice looking feeder. Birds love it but squirels love it more. The top opens too easily and squirels get inside the feeder. I found a happy squirel inside sleeping on his back in the black oil sunflower seeds the other day...Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
This feeder includes a Sure-Lock™ cap to prevent squirrels from accessing the top of the feeder. After filling the feeder, push the button in and slide the lid down as tightly to the feeder as possible. Make sure the button is released fully to engage the locking mechanism.
Additional measures can be taken to keep squirrels away. We recommend placing feeders at least 5 feet above the ground and 10 feet from the nearest launching point, such as trees or decks. Cayenne pepper or safflower seed can be added to the mix to repel squirrels as well.

Review RateNot very squirrel resistant
Squirrels get the top off of this, too easily. Then , they crawl inside and feast. If the top threaded on, it would be more squirrel resistant. They can also sit on the tray and even though it closes, they get their claws between the glass and closed tray and peel seeds out that wayResponse From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this valuable feedback. This feeder uses our Sure-Lock™ cap to help prevent squirrels from lifting the lid and stealing the seed. To secure the lid down, press the button at the top of the lid while holding the hanging wire taught. Slid the lid down and give the wire a slight pull up to ensure a tight fit.
We appreciate the suggestions regarding this feeder and have shared them with our Product Manager. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions.
I thought I would like this feeder because of it's many features. However, I cannot mount it on any flat surfaces because it has a slanted bottom. I cannot mount it on a pole because there is not a proper fitting. Clearly, based on current reviews, I cannot hang it from a tree limb because the weight of this feeder is significant and the cable is not strong enough. I also do not have trees with strong enough limbs to mount from a branch. I am sending it back to you and trusting that you will refund my full payment along with shipping costs.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. This feeder is designed to be hung from the metal cable and hold up to 12 lbs of seed. As an alternative, this feeder can also be pole mounted using a pole fitting into the 13/16ths of an inch hole on the underside of the feeder.

Review RateBad feeder, great customer service
Awful feeder. After 2 days with very few birds coming to feed, I decided to switch the feeder to a different area in my yard that had another feeder on which the birds seemed to love. As soon as I hung the feeder on the new hook the cable snapped. Not surprised because this is a very heavy feeder even without seed inside. The broken cable frustrated me to the point of calling customer service. I must say, I was very impressed with the service I received and they are replacing the feeder with another one that I chose instead. I would buy from Perky Pet again, just not this model of feeder!Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and are glad to know that we were able to provide a solution. Our feeders are covered by a one year replacement warranty.

Review RateSquirrel-Be Gone.I bought this a month ago. It's called squirrel Be Gone, and so are the birds. The tray where the seeds come out, fills up with water when it rains, then the seeds harden and you have to throw away all the seeds. Not only does this happen on the tray, but water gets into the feeder also.Response From WoodstreambrandsTara : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback. Birds like to eat in a calm, sheltered location out of the wind. If there is a heavy rain, the feeder can be taken down to help preserve the seed.

Review RateGreat FeederBought this to replace my 15 year old feeder that was on its last legs, and wanted the same type. This is exactly like the old one. Happy birds, not so happy squirrels. Feeder hangs off my clothesline and I just reel it in when it needs refilling.
