It looks smaller than I thought it would. But it is very attractive. It is also very easy to add the food. I may buy another one after we’ve had a chance to use it.
Not a good product
I have – or had – this bird feeder. There was only one problem with it: the birds weren’t able to perch to eat anything, which was pointless. It was poorly constructed: one wall kept falling down inside when I tried to put seed in, making it hard to get it to close. The thing that you hung it from broke, so I had to throw the thing out. It was a worthless piece of junk and I’m sorry I ever wasted my money on it.
On the plus side, blue jays can’t perch on this discount bird feeder! The only negative is that the small birds aren’t especially fond of this one, possibly due to its narrow tray and the types of birds around my house. It’s a pretty feeder, however, and well constructed. Very easy to fill. The little birds do eat from it occasionally, so I don’t mind having bought it. Maybe with spring and some different birds in the area, there will be more activity.
