Cleaning: Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. We recommend disinfecting your bird feeders once a month in winter and more often in hot and humid weather. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a bird feeder brush to brush away grime inside the tube. Then remove any hardware and clean with a solution of mild soap and water, rinsing thoroughly. Refill when completely dry.

Birds That Use This Feeder
Type Of Feed
This is the best platform feeder I've ever had. It's rugged and durable, and holds a lot of seed. The cover keeps the rain and snow out. Well worth the price.
I preferred the previous feeder that I had for a few years. This is wider; but the height is a problem for the larger birds (Mockingbirds) that enjoy the mealworms I put out for them. The other (D.Y) wasn't as wide; it was deeper. The smaller birds aren't attracted at all (in either one of them). I had wanted to buy the former; even though it fell too many times & cracked. I should have been patient & waited for the one I really wanted to be available.
Hi Gail, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Covered Platform Feeder with Adjustable Dome. We understanding that you love your previous feeder, but we think it is awesome that you are branching out and giving a different one a try! Just like people, birds can take a long time, sometimes weeks, to feel comfortable around a new feeder. Birds feel vulnerable out in the open, so try to place your feeder near a bush or tree, but not too close where squirrels can jump on it. If you have other feeders, placing a new one near an older one will help the birds get used to it. You can always try offering black oil sunflower seeds, as this is a favorite of most birds! We hope that you start seeing more birds at your feeder soon! If you have any 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!
This great feeder was key to my efforts to deter clouds of starlings from taking over my feeders. The finches now have a safe, undisturbed place to eat--and soon, I'll raise the dome a bit to encourage the cardinals that have now found my feeding area.
Wonderful feeder—high quality, easy to use. I got it to feed cardinals, as the “bully birds” kept hogging the usual style feeder. Since I can control the dome height, it allows in only smaller birds up to cardinal size, and keeps out the others! Satisfying!!!
