Squirrels get at food and quickly
Comments about Product:
This was a great disappointment and does not work as advertised

The weighted access solution is potentially a good one.

But the Bird feeder is made of such cheap flimsy plastic that the squirrels ( I had two of these feeders) gnawed at it until - rather quickly - they opened a whole for access making the whole mechanism not work and gave the squirrels access to the food.

Squirrely deal
Comments about Product:
It has kept the squirrels off it so far. Have seen three different tries with failure by the little buggers. It doesn't allow as many birds on it at once which is a bother but maybe I'll just have to get another.

Best Ever
Comments about Product:
This is the best bird feeder ever and it is very sturdy, I now have four in my yard and hoped to buy two more as gifts, very disappointed it is no longer available. I hope it comes back in stock by Fall.

Smart Squirrels
Comments about Product:
Birds and Squirrels are both enjoying it.
Squirrels figured out how to hang below the opening, swing up so they didn't put weight on the feeder perch which would shut off the opening, and scoop out a lot of seed. But the feeder has many great features ..sturdy, easy to fill, etc.

This Was the Best Gift Ever!
Comments about Product:
This truly baffles the neighborhood squirrels. The birds love it. :) I do feed the squirrels separately; but now the birds get a chance to eat without the squirrels scarfing all the food in record time. This was a Christmas Gift from my Son and I couldn't be happier with it.

Actually Squirrel-Proof
Comments about Product:
We have a wildlife sanctuary acre yard. It his is the only truly squirrel-proof feeder we have ever found. After spending $100's on every type of feeder out there, this is the best one we have found. Highly recommend.

Comments about Product:
We've had one of these for several years and it is beyond excellent! It works exactly as advertised. We've lost nothing to squirrels nor can they get to the inner part to destroy it. The feeder has stayed in great condition. Ours was an earlier model and I think this must be even better (re the ventilation they mention). This was a gift from our daughter. I don't think I'd be likely to buy it for myself at this price--but we are so delighted to have it, and so are our birds! It would make a wonderful Christmas or birthday gift for the bird-lover you love!

Truly Squirrel Proof
Comments about Product:
I had bought a similar style feeder at a 'big box" home improvement store for half the price but the squirrels eventually figured out they could use the platform at the bottom to hold their weight and manipulate the spring loaded wire mesh enough to get to the food. The feeder was also flimsy. You get what you pay for! However, this excellent Plow & Hearth feeder is another story. It doesn't have a platform on the bottom so there is nothing for the squirrel to stand on. It is also very sturdy. I have had the feeder for 2 months and it works great. I have seen squirrels jump on it and give it their best shot but they never succeed. The birds love it. Iam very pleased with this feeder so it gets a 5 stars rating from me.
