Birds That Use This Feeder
Type Of Feed
Couldn’t ask for a better product or customer service.
. . . poorly designed for mounting on a pole, even though there’s a port at the bottom that accommodates a threaded hook or a pole adapter. I bought two of these several years ago, hoping to mount them on DY pole kits. These feeders are very well made, as you’d expect from DY, but they’re very heavy. There is no compatible pole adapter strong enough to keep the feeders upright - the threads on the adapter quickly strip, the feeder goes over, hits the ground. Once in my experience the dome cracked when it struck the frozen ground. Another time the wire loop was knocked out of shape so that it was near impossible to lift the top for refilling, again the wire so sturdy, I couldn’t get it back into shape. Also, whatever is used to anchor the cage to the base of the tube, don’t remove it. Realigning the tube to reattach the base of the tube to the bottom of the cage is very frustrating. (The o-ring that sits between the bottom of the cage and the tube quickly rusted away.) So, hang it, great; pole-mount it, not recommended.
Hi Skip, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees New Generation Green Sunflower Caged Bird Feeder. We are happy to hear that you appreciate our Droll Yankees feeders and their quality. We appreciate you sharing your experience with them and are happy to know that you have been a loyal customer of ours! We are sorry to hear that pole mounting this feeder has been such a frustrating and poor experience for you. These feeders offer a 1lb seed capacity and weigh about 1.2lbs on their own, so a total weight of 2-2.5lbs should not be too heavy when mounted to a pole. If you have an ADPT (pole adapter) that has stripped, you can call our Customer Service Department to order a new one, and we would be happy to send you one, one time free of charge. They can be reached at 1-800-352-9164, Monday - Friday, 7am - 4:30pm EST. Or you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, if that is easier. Thank you and Happy Birding!
I believe this is the best caged bird feeder on the market. It not only keeps larger birds like pigeons from accessing the bird seed, but also medium sized birds like starlings, curve-billed thrashers, and inca doves. The cage is wide enough to prevent medium sized birds from squeezing their heads through the cage and stretching to reach seed. I also like that it doesn't have a solid bottom. I don't have to worry about seed particles, shells, and droppings accumulating on the bottom. The spacing of the holes in the cage bottom, and the distance of the bottom part of the cage from the bottom feeding ports, prevents large birds from accessing seeds from underneath. I like that the clear dome cover keeps seeds dry and doesn't block my view of the birds. I have used other caged feeders, but none of them had all of these features (you get what you pay for). After using this feeder for years, I did replace the tube feeder section with the A-6RP Classic Sunflower Bird Feeder with Ring Pull Advantage just for ease of cleaning. This is a sturdy feeder that will last for years. It does everything the company claims, and is worth every penny. After buying this feeder, I am a Droll Yankees convert. I have since bought other feeders from this company, and am never disappointed with the quality.

Excellent build quality and does what it is supposed to do - let the smaller birds feed unmolested. I have way too many doves and blackbirds that will clean out any open feeder. This solves that problem and the larger birds will eat the spilled seeds off the ground. I bought 2 of these to have different types of feed.
