Type Of Feed
The onyx withe the metal top is the best feeder in the world... I hope the springloaded one never comes back... It was verry cheap...
I have this feeder and I completely agree with the above reviewers -- the perches are too short. I took the tray off because it works too well for doves and grackles and I want those to eat on the ground. I'm thinking the perches on CJM23B would be a good between solution.
Well-made feeders, good capacity and will be easy to clean. I ordered two and am very happy with them. Birds took to them quickly. I've ordered seed trays for each to help larger birds access them.
I just read Judy's review and I agree fully with her comments. I have 4 Onyx Clever Clean feeders and I was thinking the same thing about this bird feeder. The quick detach bottom is excellent, but the perches are too short. They need to extend out farther to allow for the cardinals to feed easily. The cardinals currently struggle to stay on the perch while feeding. Sure, extending the perch may attract some undesirable birds, but that is OK. Cardinal fans can deal with it. It would be great to have them relax and enjoy their seeds. Everyone would be happier. Please, Droll Yankee, give this idea fair assessment.
Hello, Dennis! Thank you for the suggestion. This tubular seed feeder is designed for songbirds of all sizes and kinds however, ground birds like cardinals prefer the sure footing of a platform or tray. Rather than extending the perches, I would recommend that you add a seed tray. Seed trays act like a platform for birds to stand on. Plus you can save money buy catching the spilled seed. We have created a seed tray called the Onyx Clever Clean Seed Tray that allows the tray to remain on the base of the Onyx feeder when removing the base for cleaning. I hope this helps you with your Cardinals.
This is a well made feeder, and a good size. I like that you can screw the bottom off, for easy cleaning. I like the metal perches and top/bottom part are also metal. My only complaint is that the perches could be a little longer, as it's awkward for cardinals to feed. They do manage, but they have to flutter their wings, and position themselves to get seed. It's not as easy for them, as it is for the smaller birds. That's why I gave this feeder 4 stars. Maybe, there could be an extension to put on the perch, like the ones available for other feeders.
