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
Tower Wood Feeder
I love the Tower Wood Feeder! Once the weather was decent I filled it with wild bird food and it didn't take long for the birds to discover it. Living in the woods, we have an assortment of birds and I've enjoyed watching them feast! I like that some birds perch on the post, some eat from the mesh bottom and others pick up what has fallen on the ground. The tower bird feeder compliments my horizontal feeders. It's nice to have a variety of styles for all the birds. The tower feeder is easy to fill and you can add as much or as little food as you like. This would be a great Mother's Day gift!
Not squirrel proof
Unfortunately I have squirrels that get all the food.
Hi Barbara, We're sorry to hear that you are having issues with squirrels accessing your bird feeder! Although this is not a squirrel-proof feeder, we would like to offer some squirrel-proofing tips: 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're also including this link for more squirrel-proofing advice: https://morebirds.com/blogs/news/how-to-successfully-squirrel-proof-your-bird-feeders We hope this information helps!
Charming look, holds a lot of seed, decent construction
Pretty bird house look, reasonable price for a feeder that holds 3lbs of bird seed. The roof did not lay seamlessly on top of the feeder but wood will bend and warp depending on temperature. This will be a good feeder to accommodate smaller to medium sized birds (finches, sparrows, chickadees to eastern blue birds and cardinals), but the perch is too small for the likes of mourning doves or blue jays. Will have to see how weather resistant the wood construction is through the years.
Would be 5 except for ...
I received this White Wood Tower Sunflower Bird Feeder in exchange for giving an honest review. It is an attractive, slim-profile feeder that has a perforated, metal platform to prevent moisture buildup. It is surprising how much seed it holds. I noticed the seed level dropping the day after filling and hanging the feeder - birds like it! Today, I finally saw birds resting on the platform seeming quite comfortable looking around my yard. They were dark red and brown, cute little birds that I never saw in my yard! The reasons I did not give a 5 is because: 1. The 'roof' doesn't fit snugly, and I'm afraid it will warp from weather; 2. Whoever packaged it put it in a very large box with no crumpled newsprint or anything to cushion it during shipping; so it arrived with a crack in the tube. I used clear packaging tape to fix it and hopes it lasts. 3. Whoever designs the info tags that comes with this specific feeder should add a brief sentence warning that sunflower hulls can be toxic to plants. (I hung it over a flower garden area and just ordered a hook to move it to my deck rail, because the hulls are already scattered beneath the feeder.) I appreciate all the info that is in the More Birds website Learning Center! That's where I learned about the sunflower seed issue;)
