Not effective By EllieMay

Squirrels were able to get into feeder after the second day. Wasn't very effective at all. The bird seed that came with the feeder was a huge attraction for the squirrels. I tried adjusting the feeder, but didn't work so ended up taking down.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Susan : Consumer Relations Representative

Once assembled, the locking bolt and locking nut can be used to adjust the baffle.  This will allow you to lower the baffle to stop squirrels from stealing the seed.

We apologize that this was not your experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.  Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.

Squirrel Foiler By Mollybuttons
We have pesky squirrels and rodents vying for our wild bird food. So we're investing in bird feeders that are for birds only. This feeder is working great and I love the rain guard above the feeder.... a 2 for 1 in this feeder.

Platform feeder is the best By LindaH
This has become, by far my favorite feeder. It handles whatever food most of my favorite birds are looking for...w/my homemade suet being currently #1. And with its generous platform, they tend to stay longer to accommodate my view!

Squirrel-proof platform feeder By julayda76
I'm very pleased with this feeder. It's hard to find a squirrel-thwarting PLATFORM feeder...especially for under $30! This one works very well,

I bought this feeder because I wanted to have something the mourning doves could feed from. We have Canada geese hang around a lot, so I can't put seed on the ground as they'll gobble it all up in no time! I like that you can vary the space between the base & the baffle. I do wish it was a bit larger in diameter, but it works well enough for at least two doves at a time to sit on it. I saw from other reviews that other people who purchased this didn't use the mesh cover; I don't either. It does make it more difficult for the birds to reach the seed, although it would help keep the seed inside. It's a nice feeder for the price!

I was a bit concerned how this would work given that the grille makes some of the seed harder to reach. However, the feeder has two benefits:1. It provides ample perching room for birds small or big and it's used for that with or without seed. Doves even used it as rain shelter :)2. Because, as the level of seed drops below the grille, it is a bit more difficult to get to the seeds birds tend to hang around more just trying to get to the food making for a better "show"I typically put about a cup of seed and that's enough for a day or two of fast followed by slow foraging.

Amazon Review, Nice little feeder By
This is a cute little bird feeder. I wanted a smaller one to put my leftover seeds from my bigger feeder and this seemed to be about right. It's easy to put together and the birds like it. This price seems a bit high for the quality though. The top is hard plastic and it had a few scratches on it that already all that attractive, but I guess the birds don't really care. It's short so I bought a chain to put it on. So far so good.

This feeder is well constructed and will keep squirrels away if hung correctly. I hung it where the squirrel could access it from the side, so bypassing the springy dome, so that was my fault. However, the grid does not deter the squirrel. You can adjust the dome so that larger birds can gain access, and in fact, that's all I've seen in it is the larger birds. The smaller ones seem to prefer my platform feeder or the other standard feeder. Perhaps the smaller birds are scared by the moving dome. In any case, it is well made and will stand up to weather, it looks like, and holds a lot of food. I may try putting a smaller seed in and move it and see what happens. I did see a woodpecker at it that I have not seen for a while, but I also put new food out. Greater for the larger birds, I'd say.

The squirrel shield seems to work well; I hung this feeder just a few feet from another one that the squirrels are always in and I haven't seen a single one on this unit. That same shield seems to keep birds from it, too, at least at first. It took about a week and a half before the birds started using this unit, but once they started, they seem to be using it just as much as the one we already had. I think it's because the shield sways and wobbles with every breeze and it was scaring the birds at first. It would be nice if the feeder held more seed; it has to be refilled every day. But at least what it holds is going to birds, not squirrels.
