Type Of Feed
This is definitely a 5-Star product so why am I only giving it 3 Stars? Because I really hate the color. Hanging up in the trees the yellow color of this feeder really pops out in a tacky way plus it distracts from the beautiful yellow colors of the goldfinches that feed from it. The color of this feeder, and all feeders, needs to be neutral. Please, Droll Yankees, make this exact same bird feeder in "BLACK". The construction and ergonomics of this feeder are excellent. Some people might protest that colorful feeders attract birds. Hogwash. I have many neutral colored feeders and they all attract birds plus if you want color you can tie a red ribbon on the top if you want. Please just don't force me to have a yellow nyjer feeder.

This is a great feeder but my local squirrels have destroyed the tube. Is a replacement tube available for this model?

I've had this feeder for nearly five years now. I have it on a shepherds hook in my front yard, and it has survived not one, but TWO black bear attacks. The yellow warblers are nuts about it. You seriously can't go wrong with this feeder. It's super durable and stands up to the elements. The construction is flawless. What plastic feeders do you know of, that can stand up to a bears teeth? IMO money well spent! 5-Stars!! -NJ.
Have only had it for 5 days but I'm very happy with this feeder so far. It appears to be a very well thought out design. Rugged heavyweight metal construction so it doesn't swing wildly in strong wind (which was tested on the 2nd day). It appears to be easy to clean too. Goldfinches found it the first day and have I've seen dozens of them feeding each day. No other bird species or squirrels have even looked at it. In a world rife with shoddy goods and wildly exaggerated claims it's refreshing to see a product that exceeds my expectation. Naperville, IL
Changing my rating from 2-stars to 5-stars. Now that I know how to take it apart to keep it clean - I can honestly say this is a durable, functional, high quality bird feeder that the birds love.
