Review RatePretty goodPretty good at keeping them out! Hang from a tree not a porch hook. Be aware...sneaky squirrels or something working on getting the top off :o(. They had previously stretched the spring for the top and Perky Pet was so great, they replaced it for me. Thanks Perky Pet!

Review RateGreat Product
I love this bird feeder. I just bought a replacement. I am still using my old one. I have had it for 4 years now. I leave it out in the winter as well and it still work fine. Very easy to full up. Love seeing all those birdies eat.
Review RateReally like this feeder; it is a good one.
I happen to really like this feeder. This is my third one. the first one lasted about 7 years and then the bottom fell off. my second one got really dirty on the inside plastic and i couldn't see the seeds to find out if it was empty. i tried cleaning it, but it didn't clean up well enough. so then i purchased my third one. i looked at a few different feeders, but i only like this one. i have seen a squirrel or two cling to the top, but then the outside metal frame pushes down and closes off the feeding openings, and squirrel jumps off. I recommend it.
Review RateNot squirrel proof
So disappointed with this bird feeder. I really like the look of it but it is not squirrel proof at all. Twice now they have been able to get the bottom off and then the bird seed falls out. It was full this morning and by afternoon it was empty with the bottom piece on the ground and a squirrel there having a feast. Seems there should be a more secure way of fastening the bottom piece to keep it attached.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear the furry thieves are still stealing your birdseed!

This feeder is covered by our 30-day guarantee and a 1-year replacement policy. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for assistance, we're happy to help.
Review RateFeeder falls down
I've happily used this feeder, which my birds love, for several years until the smartest squirrel chewed first the top edge of the plastic tube (after prying the top off) and then below one of the ports. But my new one has the same basic design flaw as previous ones - the projections on the bar which holds it up are too short so that the slightest squeeze on the other two sides of the tube expands the tube a bit and it falls down, seed and all. I've had it two weeks and this has happened four times, cause unknown but squirrels suspected. Perky-Pet has known of this flaw for years and inexplicably hasn't changed the design. Either the projections on the crossbar need to be longer (easy to change) or the tube made of non-deformable material.Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative

First I have purchased many of your products in the past and have been satisfied with them until I purchase the Squirrel-Be-Gone Feeder on 01-11-19. I did notice squirrels on the feeder, but noticed they were not getting any seed at first. Just filled my feeder this morning and noticed that the smart squirrels have chewed around the bottom of the u shape opening and now are happily feeding on this feeder. I have my receipt from my local hardware Ace store and will be calling you in the morning. Suggestion is to make the cylinder out of glass, or placing a wide metal rim around the opening. Not sure a replacement would be an option until the design has been corrected or I will need to continue to replace when this happens again.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNo more pesky Squirrels and bully Cowbirds
This is a revision from my first review. I have two of these feeders, had problems at first, birds seemed to get confused and not use the feeder, but given some time right now every feeding station has a bird on it on both feeders. Saw the squirrel hanging off it once, seems the ground seed was better. Works great for small birds, this is also good for keeping Cowbirds away. Cowbirds are like locust wiping out seed and bulling the small birds, they're too large to fit on the perch and get their big heads in there.
