Cleaning: Dirty bird feeders spread disease. We recommend cleaning your feeders weekly, or monthly at a minimum. Do not put your feeder in the dishwasher as the high temperatures can permanently damage the feeder parts. Clean your feeders outdoors with a large bucket, and always wear gloves when cleaning. Soak your feeder in a 9:1 solution of water and bleach for 15 minutes. Then use a bird feeder brush to scrub the feeder with dish soap and water. Refill when completely dry.
Birds That Use This Feeder
Type Of Feed
I love this feeder, ease of use, strong construction and although not squirrel proof the squirrels seem to have no interest in it!! Easy to fill and wash clean! It did very well with bitter temps here in Minnesota and the finish seams very strong. Very Good metals used in this feeder, and I expect to get several years use from it!! Fast shipping and packaging was good also!! Worth every penny and I will be checking into more of their products!! Linda Wagar
Nice feeder, attracts many birds, multiple birds can feed at once, easy to use and clean
Works too well.
I like it. Very easy to fill and easy to wipe off bird deposits. However, I have a black bird and house sparrow problem. Today, I filled it to the top and less than 3 hours later, it was empty. I am going to figure out how to place it inside a cage. I know that will eliminate the red bellied woodpeckers, cardinals and probably the nuthatches, but I can't afford going through a 40 lb. bag of black oil sunflower seed every two weeks on just one feeder. So far it seems of good quality and should hold up well.
Hi Brian, Sparrows can be difficult to contend with, especially when they upset the harmony of your backyard birding station. We’ve searched for the best ways to deter these birds and would like to share some articles with you, as there are several methods some backyard birders are using to deter the house sparrows. http://www.wildbirdhabitatstore.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=89:controlling-house-sparrows&catid=9&Itemid=170 First of all, we would suggest that you change the foods that you’re currently offering the birds. We would suggest that you remove cracked corn, wheat, oats, millet and bread scraps from your backyard birdfeeders. Sunflower seed should also be either limited or restricted to small feeders that sway in the wind, which can spook house sparrows but will not always be effective. Try adding safflower seeds, which are not preferred by these aggressive birds. We hope this information helps!
Bright, sturdy feeder!
Even right outside the dinette window, the birds seem to be attracted to the bright yellow feeder (and it’s contents)!
The pros are that both perching and clinging birds can use the feeder and a variety of seeds can be used. The cons are that it can't be pole mounted and the seeds spill out the bottom holes onto the seed catcher although this design is probably intentional. Bird **** also can collect in the seed catcher potentially spreading disease. I haven't had it long enough to determine its durability.
