No squirrels yet! By Kimba728
Received this feeder about a week ago and altho we have squirrels, they're only feeding from seed that's fallen out if it to the ground. It does drop a lot of seed..not sure why. It's very large and also very heavy when you need some muscles to lift it up..bit so far so good!

Excellent Product! By Linda57
I gave this to my daughter for her birthday. She had given up trying to feed the birds as the squirrels kept getting into the seed. This feeder has solved that problem and, as an added bonus, has provided her with many hours of entertainment as she watches the squirrels try (and fail) to get into this feeder.

it works By jeanne
I am very please with this bird feeder. It dumps the squirrels off the baffle and prevents them from getting to the seed if they approach from below instead of from above. Love it

Only bird that will eat from this is Pine Siskin By ispeakcat
This is well built and large, but the song birds (finches, sparrows, etc.), other than Pine Siskins, refuse to eat from it. Perhaps the head opening is too small, and/or the distance to the feed is too much. I emptied all other feeders for a number of weeks, and the behavior was the same. Too bad.

Excellent value By gilril
These feeders have been up for one week and are working out perfectly. Great design & construction so they should last. Have not been challenged by squirrels yet. Compared to others on the market these are an excellent value.

Wild Bird Feeders - Expert Tips

Hanging Your Feeder

  • Ideally a sheltered southeastern exposure location is best for hanging bird feeders since birds like to feed in the sun and out of the wind. Birds also prefer not to have any obstructions over their feeding area so they can see any predators. more»

Feeder Care

  • Keeping your feeder clean and full of fresh bird seed is very important to the health of visiting birds. It is recommended that you clean your wild bird feeder every two weeks. more»

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What are the most popular bird seeds to use?

A: Black Oil Sunflower Seed is the most popular bird seed. It is much smaller than the traditional sunflower seed and best for those birds with smaller bills, such as the sparrow, junco, and goldfinch. This seed is accepted by the greatest variety of birds.

Mixed Seed is also popular. It is best to buy the mixes that contain white proso millet, a tiny cream colored seed with a shiny shell. Mixes containing finely cracked corn and black oil sunflower are also preferred by a large number of birds.

Niger (Thistle Seed) is imported from Africa and Asia. Niger won't germinate, but it does have a tendency to become moldy due to lack of air circulation. If you notice mold on the seed, it must be removed from the feeder and the feeder must be cleaned thoroughly.

Q: How do I clean my bird feeders?

A: Before filling your feeder with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:

  1. Remove all old seed.
  2. Soak feeder in a light water/bleach solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach).
  3. Scrub feeder and allow to air dry.
  4. Rake and remove accumulated hulls and droppings from underneath the feeders.
  5. Spread mulch (bark or wood) under the feeder, replace mulch when soiled.
  6. Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.

Q: What is the importance of providing water for wild birds?

A: Wild birds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need seed. Birds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also for bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide birds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for birds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy. By adding a water source, you also can attract a larger variety of birds to your yard. You may even attract more colorful birds that don't eat seed, but are in need of water!
