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
I had 2 metal mesh feeders (another brand) for several years. After one was damaged, (we're thinking bear based on other damage), we replaced it with this one. Birds were using it within a few days, and now they seem to prefer this one over their old one. It appears to be made just as well, and the slotted cover I was using with the old one is not a perfect fit, but does the trick. Should I decide to add a third nyger seed feeder, I would definitely make this my first consideration. I use a finch blend, and have a multitude of daily goldfinch, house finch, purple finch visitors as well as an occasional chickadee, nuthatch and tufted titmouse grabbing a seed (though these three last ones are usually spotted at one of my other feeders).
I am not sure why this has one star. It did take a couple of weeks for the birds to warm up to the change, but I really love this feeder. It is constructed very solid, it looks nice hanging in our yard. I have so many finches (I finally have my first Gold Finch!!!) and little birds who love this feeder
Feeder is hung among other feeders holding black oil seed. Finches will not go to this feeder. Even took moved other feeders away for a week. The finches disappeared until I brought back the black oil feeders and they still won't feed off of this one!
Hello William, Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. We are very sorry that you are not seeing birds on your new feeder. Birds are creatures of habit, and it can take them days or even weeks to use a new feeder. There is something new in the yard that they are not used to, and they need to warm up to it first. Temporarily placing the feeder near a shrub or tree where birds will feel safe can also encourage them to explore the new feeder. Adding something like a colorful ribbon can also help, as the movement in the wind can make the birds feel like another bird has found the feeder to be safe. We would suggest temporarily removing other feeders in the area so that the birds must use the new one. Oddly enough, filling the feeder half-full seems to help attract the birds to the new feeder. We hope that the birds begin to use the feeder soon, and please keep us updated! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you.
