A No/No feeder with brass finish is a very special product, built by a company committed to making bird feeders without decomposable wood or plastic -- creating an extremely durable and long-lasting bird feeding solution. An extended roof nicely protects it from squirrels and weather, the No/No feeder collapses flat for easy shipping and storage and is dishwasher safe! Holds up to 2.5 lbs. of seed at a time, and is large and variable enough to accommodate 15-20 perching and clinging birds simultaneously. A favorite of Northern Cardinals, the No/No feeder arrives fully assembled and ready to use!

I can't say enough good things about the feeder. It's hanging outside my window so I can watch the variety of birds that come everyday. It's sturdy, holds plenty of seeds and is big enough for many birds to feed at the same time. Plastic feeders don't last one season. This one will.

This is my second classic no no. The first one is still going strong after many, many years, though I recently cleaned and re-spray painted the silver finish. It holds enough small black sunflower to last, and our nuthatches, blue and great tits, and even marsh tits use it year round. Yesterday I saw the season's first baby blue tit learning to take seed from, wings fluttering, as if it were a second mother.

I love the feeder, but do not like the top cover, it makes it too difficult to fill the feeder, especially when cold. I will probably take it off for the winter, but would be nice if it was all in one cover.

This is my second no-no- brass bird feeder. The nicest feature is that the air can circulate threw the mesh thus keeping the seeds drier. The birds seem to prefer this feeder over others, probably because of easy access.

We've had so much fun watching the birds hang every which way on the feeder to grab at the seeds, and finally, the squirrels don't have a chance!! I'm looking at getting another order sent off soon.

The bird feeder is simply the best we ever had. The birds flock to it and squirrels can't destroy it! I will be buying more for Christmas gifts.

Order was processed efficiently. Packaging used for shipment was top rate. The bird feeder is probably the best one I've ever owned & I've been feeding birds for 35 years.It is really a great feeder. As other feeders I use fail, I will more than likely replace them with more of this feeder.

We've had this feeder about a month, and so far it has worked fine. It holds a lot of sunflower seeds, the birds seem able to get at the seeds, and so far squirrels have mostly left it alone. It's easy to fill, and birds that are social feeders like to congregate on the perch that circles the feeder.

This is a great bird feeder. One review said it had plastic parts but we sure couldn't find any. I dare the squirrels to destroy this one!

Bought one of these for our winter cottage. After enjoying the "view" from our family room as the birds ate away, I'm ordering 5 more for Christmas presents!

This is a good sturdy product that should last for years.

This feeder hangs outside my home office and it's such a treat to take a break and watch the birds feed. It is easy to refill, too!

I haven't actually set it up yet but it looks like a durable product and should get the job done.

It holds a considerable quantity of seed while accommodating 56 birds at one time. Fortunately we do not have any squirrels at this time.

These are good solid bird feeders. The birds can get the seed easily but it discourages other animals.

The No-No Brass feeder is strong enough to withstand the squirrel assaults while allowing the smaller titmice, chickadees and finches easy access to the sunflower seeds. The squirrels are now actually entertaining as they hang upside down from the feeder eating a single sunflower seed they managed to wrestle through the mesh.

This is a clever design and well constructed. I really like the look too!

It works well and the birds love it! It is easy to fill. What more could one ask for?

Excellent bird feeder. The best I've ever had. I intend to purchase more of them.

The No-No bird feeder is sturdy and stays clean. It holds a lot of seed for its size. The squirrels leave it alone. It's a great little feeder!

It holds lots of feed but the birds seem unable to access the feed once it's down to the bottom 1/4 of the feeder. The great news is that the squirrels and raccoons have not been able to get into it or get it down from it's hanger. I have a plexi-canopy over it. Overall I'm quite pleased!

I am very happy with this bird feeder. It is well constructed. And the birds love it too!!!

This is a very functional. It is a simple bird feeder that should work well over the next years. Nothing fancy, but the birds will enjoy it when they are hungry.

I like the large capacity, however, the squirrels hang upside down to enjoy the sunflower seeds.

By Carol J. from Cape Cod, MA

Birds love this feeder because several can perch at once (big and small birds on opposite sides) and some seed falls through the mesh for ground feeders. Seeds that get wet mostly dry out from sun and wind in this feeder. The only negative is that the feeder is difficult to fill because of its collapsible design. You have to fill it while it's hanging either from the post or your hand. Not a big deal once you get used to it.

It is as good as advertised, however it is amusing to watch the contortions the squirrel goes through to get the seeds.

By Kathy L. from Auburn, CA

I've never seen a bird on it, but the seed level is down so I am assuming it works. I like the over all design and the fact that it flattens for storage.

By Ron M. from San Diego, CA

I thought this feeder would solve my problem with crows getting to my oiled sunflower seeds. however, this feeder makes it almost impossible for the finches, grosbeaks and jays to get to this type seed. I had to go to hulled sunflower seeds for the birds to get access. Otherwise, it is easy to fill and looks good.

I have already done this shortly after I put it in use. No where near as popular with the birds as others I used.

By Ron S. from Shippensburg, PA

We hate it. It is one of the worst we have owned, and would not recommend it to anyone. Both the birds, chipmunks, and squirrels hang on it and shake it, spilling bird seed on the ground. In fact we will be taking it down soon.

More No/No Feeder Items

The "NO-NO" Bird Feeder was developed and constructed with No wood and No plastic. It is an all metal collapsible wire basket sunflower seed feeder that is similar in design to fish baskets you may have seen. It met all of the requirements that we felt were important and a few that were just bonuses for the consumer.

It will not rot or fall apart like wooden feeders, and the squirrels cannot tear them apart like other feeders. It ships and stores flat unlike some plastic feeders on the market. It comes completely assembled, and you can even run them through the dishwasher to clean them. The "NO/NO" Bird Feeder feeds both clinging and perching birds. As many as 10 to 15 at once may feed on the Black Oil Sunflower seeds that it was designed for, the most popular feed for birds.

We have also developed and patented The Ring-Around Bird Feeder. It is made of durable, UV-resistant plastic rings that looks and functions like that of drinking cups you may be familiar with. Each ring is one inch tall and nests down inside of a larger ring when collapsed to take up very little space. When hung up it looks and functions like a conventional feeder holding almost any bird feed available.
