Additional Information

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.

    Nice Looking, but where are the birds?

    Maybe I should be using some specific feed for this feeder. It has a pretty fine mesh, and so far, I’m getting no action. I have a tube feeder about 30’ away that gets constant attention.

    Hi Ron, 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 (once they've discovered it, place it far enough away from a tree so that the squirrels won't get to it). 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

    This feeder is cute and all, but I found it difficult to fill.

    Thistle feeder

    Unfortunately the finch population seems to have declined tremendously this year. I have placed the feeder very close to the black oil sunflower feeder but the finches that do come prefer the sunflower feeder. I think if the feeder had more stations it might attract more finches.

    Cute cling thistle feeder

    Since I've had several feeders hanging for years, the birds came quite quickly to this small thistle feeder. I've had flocks of redpolls, several types of finches, pine siskins enjoying this feeder. One problem I find is that the Squirrels also like this feeder, and since they cannot get at the feed through the screen, they have chewed a hole in the screen to get at the Finch Mix. I feel the screen needs to be made of a heavier mesh, as the hole was chewed right where the screen is attached to the wood.

    Hi Barbara, Thank you for taking the time to offer your suggestions. We are always looking for ways to improve the birding experience for backyard birds and backyard birders, and the ideas and suggestions of innovative, thinking people are always welcome. We're sorry to hear that you are having issues with squirrels accessing your bird feeder! Although this feeder is not squirrel-proof, we would like to offer some squirrel-proofing advice: The key to successfully keeping a feeder squirrel-proof is its placement. Squirrels are agile and are able to jump up to 8ft horizontally and 4ft vertically. For this reason, we recommend that feeders be placed 8ft away from any structures that they can climb on so that they do not reach across to access the feeding holes. It can be helpful to trim back and prune any nearby bushes or branches within 12ft of a feeder. We also recommend that feeders be placed higher than 4ft off the ground, preventing the squirrels from jumping and grabbing onto the bottom. If you are using a hook or pole, we recommend that the hook have at least a 16in distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success. We are also including a link for more squirrel-proofing advice: https://morebirds.com/blogs/news/how-to-successfully-squirrel-proof-your-bird-feeders We hope this information helps!

    White Wood Cute Cling Thistle Feeder

    The finches love it! They not only sit on the perches to eat, but also cling onto the mesh. Oh, so much fun to watch!
