Review RateNot suitable for the west coast
This bird feeder is not suitable for the pacific west coast. When it rains the seeds tend to stick together. After 3 or 4 days of rain it becomes a real problem and the birds ignore it. I have to take the feeder, empty the seed and get rid of sticky stuff. Dry the feeder, put dry seed in and do it all again if it continues to rain for more than 3-4 days, I repeat the process It's probably great for dryer climates.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi Lee! If there is a significant amount of rain, we recommend bringing the feeder indoors, or placing the feeder in an area that has protection, such as just under a porch awning. For more tips on protecting your feeders from the rain, feel free to reach out to our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-737-5973. We're happy to help!
Review RateExcellent ProductLove the heavy weight
Bird Feeder is very well made
Have not had one squirrel access feeder
Review Ratesquirrel-proof roof?
My issue is with the rotating metal T piece that holds the roof to the base. Twice now I have found the roof on the ground and the seed ruined by rain. I am trying a bungee cord around the unit to secure the roof. Any retrofits to solve this problem!Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateCute and holds a lot but not practical.
Pros: -Love the look -Squirrel proof (as long as your attach the roof all the way) -Holds a lot of seed so you don't need to constantly refill! Cons: -Not much room for the birds! I really don't know why this can't be two sided. It's just the one side with the one "bench". The other side is just metal. I wish they constructed this as two sided so no matter which way it faced the birds could eat! If it faces the window (so I can see the birds), the birds have to fly past the feeder and do a 180 in order to get to the seed, because the back of the feeder is facing the bushes. If it faces the bushes so the birds can get to it easier, I can't watch them. It would have been easy to make it two sided. Also, it really is a small space and birds are territorial, so usually only one or maybe two birds can feed at a time (as opposed to posted feeders).

Review RateSquirrels are having a feast
Not at all squirrel proof. My feeder is pole mounted with a squirrel baffle under it. The squirrels will jump the four feet up to the perch. They started getting to the seed by hanging from the roof after less than a day to get at the seed. Seeing the seed behind the window, they then gnawed the plastic tab from under one of the windows so that they can sit on the perch and empty the feeder of most of the seed. That happened after a couple of days. Would be a great feeder if you don't have squirrels.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateHappy with purchaseNice bird feeder and worked well it will keep squirrels and large birds out
Review RatePretty but seed life issues
This beautiful feeder is a joy in most aspects, but I am beginning to believe the perfect feeder does not exist. This one holds a lot of seed but I wouldn't recommend fully filling it due to issues with moisture in the hot summer rains...no matter how I try to protect it, I am having a terrible time with seed getting caught in the feeder slots & even sprouting. Have only had the feeder 3 wks & yes, I do clean it often. Is there a dome cover large enough to help shield it from rain? As for deterring squirrels it does a pretty good job of making them slide off the roof. Regardless, mine has some deep gouges which I can hardly be from squirrels. Raccoon maybe...
Review RateNot squirrel proof at all
DO NOT BUY THIS BIRD FEEDER! I GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS FROM MY HUSBAND! IT DOES NOT WORK! I watch the squirrels get in the dang feeder EVERY DANG DAY. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY! I'm really sad. I was skeptical that it would work and I followed the instructions. No matter where I move the tensioner, the squirrels just push the bar down and let up on the bar and feast away. I have pictures to send to your company. I'm going to try the motorized one I think that one will work. But not this one. I can't keep seed in it for the birds because all the squirrels know how to get in it. It was a waste of money to me.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
