Birds That Use This Feeder
Type Of Feed
This is a large capacity feeder which has the ability to restrict the seed flow into the tray. This is very effective in reducing seed waste. The feeder also protects seed from moisture in the feeder so no more seed clogs and nasty mold. Very happy with this feeder.
I was looking forward to getting my feeder. Have had several Droll Yankees products and have always been pleased. Set up this feeder in between existing feeders. Couldn't get birds to use it. I know it takes time to acclimate birds to a new feeder. What i found was that the landing surface was just too slick for them. I finally put duct tape all over the top and it seemed to help. Now the birds will come in and feed. I saw another review that mentioned this issue (but not before I purchased). Other than that, I am still pleased with the feeder. But makes you wonder if it was 'field tested' ? Definitely should have a different edge... the little guys would try to land and just kind of slide off.
Hi Debra, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Jagunda Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder. We are sorry to hear that the surface the birds land on proved to be too slick for your birds. We are happy to see, however, that you were able to come up with a DIY solution! We do field test our products and this particular feeder has been part of our product line for some time now. We will make sure our product development and design team is made aware, so they can take it into consideration when planning possible future improvements. If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164. Thank you for flying with our flock!
I was excited to receive my Jagunda bird feeder. It is attractive and holds a lot of seeds. I am hoping to get a nice population of birds this winter. Those are the pleased comments. For the price of the item I think that you could afford to send a better printed copy of assembly instructions. The print on my instructions was faint to missing entirely. I had to figure out how to assemble pretty much by guess and by gosh. Also checked Google and :YouTube for instructions, but found none. Buy some ink or a new printer please. As to the item itself, once together it looked nice, but my concern is that the pole is open at the top and will allow rain and snow to get inside the pole. Because there is no drainage at the bottom of the pole I am concerned that over time it will be damaged from accumulation of ice, snow and rain. Am I missing a part that should close the top? I placed the bird feeder 8 feet from the nearest tree. It took a week for the squirrel to figure out it could jump that far and land on top and then shimmy over the edge. I have moved the bird feeder to a spot that is tree free and eight feet from any structure. We will see if the squirrel decides to jump off the roof of the house to get to the feeder.
Hi Kristin, Thank you for leaving a review of the Droll Yankees Jagunda Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder. We are sorry to hear that the instructions that came with your feeder were not legible. Here are the instructions, which can be found on the website here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0263/1198/3157/files/JG-A_DrollYankees-Instructions2015.pdf?v=1587411296. We will email this to you as well, in case you are not able to access the website. Yes, your feeder should have come with a Black Collet Knob that closes the top of the pole, and an ADPT pole adapter to be able to attach a feeder to the top of the pole. If you are missing that part, please call our Customer Service Team and they would be happy to send you whatever parts you did not receive in the package. It sounds like you are doing all the right things to protect your feeder from squirrels, which are extremely intelligent and relentless. Feeder placement is your best defense and it sounds like you should be better off now that you moved the feeder to a better spot! If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164, Monday – Friday, 7am – 4:30pm EST. Thank you and happy birding!
We used 2 of these for years. They worked very well to keep squirrels out, but a bear finally discovered them and demolished them!
Excellent quality and sturdiness from top to bottom. Anchoring system, foot poles and seed weight have held this feeder in place through 20-25 mph winds. Within one week birds visiting this feeder include: House Finches, Chickadees, Titmice, Nuthatches, Gold Finches, Juncos, Cardinals, Downy WPs and BLUEBIRDS! Blue Jays and Mourning Doves are feeding below from spilled seed left on the ground. Yes, as I've mixed dried meal worms with the seed, a pair of mated Bluebirds visits regularly. Be advised however, the meal worms do NOT slide through the seed ports and instead clog the port openings. This is expected as the feeder's design is for seed. It is not an issue to simply unclog the port openings with your finger or a wire once every couple of days. If the seed ports were just a half inch bigger, there would be no such issue. IT IS ABSOLUTELY SQUIRREL PROOF when ground mount! This feeder has had a number of pole climbing squirrels get frustrated as they cannot climb up and around the bottom seed tray of the feeder. My only criticism is that it is difficult for birds to land onto this feeder's seed tray. It is a relatively slippery and smooth clear plastic that birds cannot easily grip onto when attempting to land. This condition becomes worse when the seed tray is wet. Multiple birds instead simply land onto the seed and sit in the seed trough while feeding. The birds are learning how to master the landing on the plastic itself, but I've seen many flutter aimlessly to no avail whenever they attempt to get a foot hold. A method of roughening the seed tray surface or adding a rubber grip tape strip for easier bird landing success would have given this feeder a 5 star rating. A one day attempt was made to add an additional tube feeder to the top of the Jagunda as described by the company. Functionality was good, but sturdiness was diminished. Also, my personal opinion, the aesthetics of the tube feeder on top is not preferred. The tube feeder was removed and is awaiting installation elsewhere in the yard on a separate DY pole system.
