Review RateBest birdfeeder ever!I purchased the No-No hourglass birdfeeder and absolutely love it. I only have to fill it once a week, as it holds so much. The birds love it and I enjoy watching them. Wonderful product I would highly recommend!
Review RateGreat ProductVery happy with this purchase. Love how it folds down on itself when in storage. Still, those wily squirrels know how to get the sunflower seeds out.
Review RatePerfect!I am so impressed with this feeder and I am overjoyed I bought it! It has a large capacity for seeds and additionally, has perches all the way around for multiple birds to hang out and eat. It is very well made and sturdy--it holds the weight of squirrels (yes, unfortunately, I did observe this) and it also survived a fall to the ground, from the roof overhang (unrelated to the squirrel's big butt). I highly recommend and may buy more!!!!
Review RateAmazon ReviewI enjoy feeding birds and invest in a lot of seed, especially black oil sunflower seeds...600 lbs or more a year. Am gradually switching to steel mesh feeders for hanging feeders...especially good for smaller birds, slows down large birds and squirrels from hoarding, and are easier to keep clean/disease free than plastic tube feeders. Large size lasts for days between refills.
Review RateAmazon Reviewbirds love it... best feeder there is for black oil sunflower seeds... Cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, tufted titmouse, finches of all kinds, and wood peckers.... just to name a few that cover the feeder at times...
Review RateAmazon Review, And the winner is...,Over the years we've purchased more bird feeders than I can recall. Some looked like works of art, others seemed highly functional, some began deteriorating within months, etc.But this little sucker has outshone them all and we are in the process of replacing all of our bird feeders with these.There is remarkably less food knocked to the ground when the birds dine, tho I don't know why. Also the birds perch on the rings alongside each other instead of territorial fights that always occurred with other feeders.Enyhoo, we are very very pleased to have found these.
Review RateFantastic feeder! - Amazon ReviewI've tried many different types of feeders for my backyard bird-watching(living in the San Francisco Bay Area). None has worked better than this one. It almost immediately started attracting many different types of local birds I did not see before with other feeders, including my favorite blue birds. Birds apparently love to sit on its ringed perches. The entire structure is sturdy and steady. The metal quality has a good feel to it. I have two other types of feeders and use the same type of feeds. It is obvious that birds clearly prefer this feeder; some small birds often reluctantly go to other feeders when this one is occupied by bigger ones but quickly move onto this one once the bullies leave. Its shape, color also blends well into my backyard when I hang it on the tree. I use sunflower and safflower seeds mixed with some nuggets so that the screen size is appropriate for me. Like other reviewers pointed out, however, it loses some seeds whenever birds eat from it; it also cannot hold very small seeds unless perhaps mixed with big seeds. Seeds dropped on the ground however attract a different type of birds that love to eat from the ground in my backyard; therefore, I have no complaint.
Review RateHour Glass Feeder - Amazon ReviewThis feeder is exactly as advertised. The birds don't waste as many sunflower seeds with this feeder as they do with my other feeders where they can just flick a bunch of seeds out on the ground.
Review RateAlmost Perfect Feeder - Amazon ReviewThis feeder is perfect for smaller birds which is what I intended it for since I have a platform feeder for my Cardinals. It has attracted a yellow finch and some other small birds like titmice and some birds I have yet to identify. You do have to fill it all the way up for both perches to get used and that takes a lot of feed. You can only use sunflower seeds because the smaller seed will fall out of the mesh. I haven't had any squirrels get in it but I have a baffle under it. If you want to attract Cardinals or larger birds this is not the feeder for you. The cardinals are to big for the distance between the perch and the food. They try but ultimately fall off and use the platform feeder. All in all this is a sturdy feeder and looks like it will last several years.
Review RateHour-Glass Feeder works well with large seeds - Amazon ReviewBought this feeder to replace a tube feeder for mixed seeds (tube feeder was damaged beyond repair by squirrels)and found that it is not suitable for small seeds, such as millet, which quickly fall through the wire mesh. However, it works well with black sunflower seeds. Also, it cannot be damaged by squirrels although one always manages to get seeds from it. Like many feeders designed to hold seeds, the No No does not have a seed catcher on the bottom and its top cover does not have a large enough overhang to prevent the seeds from becoming wet from drizzle and fog condensate that drips from overhead tree branches.
