Redesigned dome feed has issue with tray mount
I've had a yankee domed seed feeder for many years for feeding meal worms and have been very happy with the product. Last year I replaced my aging dome feeder which had succumbed to years of UV rays. Unfortunately, the product has been redesigned since I last purchased one and it now has an issue with how the brass nut is supported that attaches to the dowel. Over the past year, I have purchased two of the redesigned dome feeders and both have failed in the same way within 1 to 2 months of use. The plastic around the brass nut is fracturing resulting in the base falling off. Clearly, the nut is lacking sufficient material to support it. Also, I should point out that the feeder is situated and adjusted such that it is only used by birds smaller than robins.

Seed Saver with adjustable domme
I had this type feeder from Wild Birds Unlimited for years, but they discontinued it. I love the feeder for cardinals & small songbirds because the dome keeps the larger birds out. The Droll Yankee feeder is great - high quality & certainly less expensive than the WBU. I only wish the dome was a bit larger.

Second Feeder of this type failed
The birds like this feeder and it gives the seed some protection from the rain and snow, however, both of my feeders had cracks form in the plastic bowl around the metal center piece. The second feeder lasted just 2 winters seasons (I do not feed during the summer and early fall months). At $13 for the part plus over $9 in shipping to get the replacement part to me in Wisconsin, I won't be fixing my feeder.
Hi Linda, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees® Seed Saver® Bird Feeder with Adjustable Dome, 1 lb. capacity. We are sorry to hear that your feeder formed cracks in the dish around the metal center piece. Sometimes this can happen due to overtightening. We understand that costs to repair may not be what you want to spend at this time. 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!
Nice while it lasted, which wasn't very long
This blew down a couple times before I bent the hook on the brass rod into a closed ring & attached it with a carabiner. But by then, the dish had apparently cracked at the point where the brass nut was attached, and it took only a few days for a bluejay to pull the dish off, further cracking the attachment point so that the nut would no longer hold. I've jury-rigged a repair but I now need a socket wrench to remove the dish for cleaning or adjustment. All this in less than 6 months of service! Very disappointed.

Some birds are having trouble with this
Day 1 of having this new feeder up. It is replacing a similarly configured feeder that had bottom tray made of screen (which has been destroyed by racoons). My first impressions are that the depth is a little too much for the comfort of the smaller birds like chickadees and titmice. Some titmice can not comprehend the clear bottom and try to get at the seeds through the clear plastic. The red-bellied woodpeckers have not figured it out either and may have given up. We took the top off in the hope that we can get them all to adjust to the clear aspect, then maybe they can adjust to the top. I wish the top went up higher to allow more space between the top and the dish. Wish I'd shopped around more before buying this.
Hi Wanda, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees® Seed Saver® Bird Feeder with Adjustable Dome, 1 lb. capacity (X-1).
