Cleaning: Dirty bird feeders spread disease. We recommend cleaning your feeders weekly, or monthly at a minimum. Clean your feeders outdoors with a large bucket, and always wear gloves when cleaning. Soak your feeder in a 9:1 solution of water and bleach for 15 minutes. Then use a bird feeder brush to scrub the feeder with dish soap and water. Refill when completely dry.

Birds That Use This Feeder
Type Of Feed
I’m really surprised Droll Yankee produced a finch feeder that is essentially useless. I’m also surprised there aren’t reviews here that talk about the issue I’m having because there are quite a few on Chewy.com. We have many finches coming to our feeding station but no bird eats from this feeder. The holes are too small; they aren’t much bigger than a pin head. I’m going to try to enlarge them but I’m not sure the plastic tube won’t break in the process. Either I modify it or throw it away. This is disappointing.
Hi Linda, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees® Bottoms Up® Yellow Finch Feeder, 1 lb. capacity, 16 in. We are sorry to hear that your feeder is not attracting any birds. The feeder is designed with small ports to dispense thistle seed economically - birds must pull the seed out. It is possible that your birds are used to different style feeders, so you could try these tips to help introduce the new feeder to them: https://morebirds.com/blogs/news/5-tips-for-how-to-introduce-a-new-feeder-to-your-backyard-birds?_pos=76&_sid=5e6257705&_ss=r. If you truly feel the holes are too small, please feel free to send in some photos of your feeder to our Customer Service Team at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can compare yours to what it should be to determine if your tube is defective and the holes were punched incorrectly. 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 didn't see a way to update my previous review. I just wanted to report that with some modifications I have gotten this feeder to achieve the desired result. I drilled some holes in the tube to allow the birds to eat right side up. Then I shortened the perches to 1/2". The house finches can't stand on the shorter perches. The lesser goldfinches are now exclusively using the feeder - 6 at a time! It would be nice if Droll Yankees had an option of purchasing shorter perches, but these modifications only took about 10 minutes with the use of a drill and a Dremel. I would recommend shortening the perches on any nyjer feeder that you want to exclude house finches from. I think these perches are made of aluminum, and they were quite easy to cut with a metal cutting bit.
Hi Bethany, Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. If you are looking for a thistle feeder that allows birds to feed right-side-up, we would recommend our New Generation 15? Thistle Feeder. Thank you for taking the time to offer your suggestions. We are always looking for ways to improve the birding experience for backyard birds and backyard birders, and the ideas and suggestions of innovative, thinking people are always welcome. Thanks again for your message, and happy birding!
This is the first bird feeder I have ever purchased. During the COVID shutdown here in CT I wanted to entertain my cats and see what type of birds I could attract. Within a couple days I had goldfinches flocking to my strategically placed feeder. It�s a real joy to watch these birds each day. I look forward to seeing how things change as we approach Autumn. Very pleased with my purchase.
I bought 2 of these feeders. They are the best !!! Well worth the price. The American Goldfinches love the feeders.
