With its bright color and social behavior, the Northern Cardinal is a favorite among frequent visitors to bird feeders. That's why it's no surprise the No/No Red Cardinal Wild bird feeder is particularly popular.

A No/No feeder is a truly special product, one built by a company committed to making bird feeders without decomposable wood or plastic -- bringing you an extremely durable and long-lasting bird feeding experience.

No/No, which is so named for having no wood and no plastic in its feeders, puts that philosophy into action with this feeder, which is made entirely out of metal. That means there's nothing to rot or break off.

This charming red feeder will stand out against the background of your yard while attracting a wide variety of bird species.

Nearly impervious to squirrels and weather, this No/No feeder collapses flat for easy shipping and storage and is even dishwasher safe!

Holding up to 2.5 lbs of seed at a time, the feeder is big enough to accommodate 15 to 20 birds, which means you don't have to worry about setting up multiple feeders or constantly refilling it.

This feeder is great! The pair of cardinals in our neighborhood come every day.

I am extremely pleased with my No-No bird feeder. It does exactly what it's advertised to do: attract cardinals and other song birds. It repels squirrels because they can't get access to seed. I also find there is very little waste or mess because the birds are basically able to get the seed they can peck at without scattering whatever they don't like all over the ground or bushes around the feeding area. I feel it was money well spent and I have recommended it to other friends and family who are bird watching enthusiasts.

The Cardinals like the feeder. My problem was the squirrels kept getting into the feeder. I changed the seeds to Safflower seeds and the squirrels don't seem to like that as much.

I love it. This is my 2nd one and the Cardinals do come to it.

This bird feeder is perfect! The birds love it and they can't waste the sunflower seeds.

I find this to be a fine product. The only problem is that the bears also like this bird feeder. After they attack it, the top is usually bent out of shape! So I order another one!!!

I had it sent to my mother and she absolutely loves it!

The birds love this feeder and I like the fact that it holds so much seed that I am not continually filling it. I am glad that I made this purchase for myself.

I bought the No-No red cardinal mesh bird feeder as a gift for my sister who loves feeding and watching birds. The day before her birthday I was at her house and saw another No-No green feeder. She was so happy and thrilled to get another one!!!!

Terrific....The first feeder in a long time that the Squirrels and Raccoons haven't been able to destroy and the birds are at home with!

This is an excellent sunflower seed dispenser. It is easy to refill. I hang it in my yard all year. The squirrels love it, too, so it must be placed where they can't get to it.

By Alana M. from Lopatcong, NJ

I fill it with safflower seed and the squirrels don't bother with it. I get a cardinal pair on this feeder everyday.

By Lawrence B. from Monroe, VI

This is sturdy and easy to refill. All of the perching birds use it: chickadees, titmice, finches, nut hatches. Our long-time resident pair of cardinals spend a lot of time at it.

By John P. from Rochester, NY

We wanted to attract cardinals to our yard throughout the winter. This feeder, together with the recommended seed, did exactly that. We could not be more pleased. The good design allows quick and easy refill.

I really like my No-No Red Cardinal Wire Mesh bird feeder. However, the squirrels like it also, but I figure they can't get to much feed from the feeder without working hard for it, as the holes are not that big for them and they have to use their little claws. Its easy to fill and I'm sure when the time comes it will be easy to clean. I would recommend this highly to anyone. Thanks Catherine

It does keep the squirrels out! I had fun though watching them trying to get at the seed. My grandson enjoyed it too!

By Phillip S. from High Point, NC
September 15, 2007

The birds love this feeder. I like this model compared to the last similar model that I owned since it has a complete bottom perch so the seed does not fall on the ground and the birds love to eat there. I highly recommend this feeder! It is well built to last.

This is an excellent quality and price. I have already assembled it and just needed to put the seed in. My cardinals loved it from the moment I hung it.

Top of the line feeder. No molded seed from the rain, holds peanuts well too. Nice design. I'll take one more!

By Dennis R. from Schaumburg, IL

We fill the feeder with safflower seed. It holds a large volume of seed and there is room for more birds perch and feed at the same time.

This is a good feeder! Easy to fill and very durable! I'm not convinced that cardinals are attracted to the red color because I don't have many that visit the feeder.

Very nice birdfeeder, easy to clean, many birds use it. However, I would not buy a "red" bird feeder as it does not enable you to see the Cardinals will need to place very close to my patio.

By Ellen A. from Carbondale, IL
March 5, 2011

Really like the feeder, but it is not squirrel proof. We have little gray squirrels here and they manage to get on, wrap themselves around the 'seed cage' and munch away. The birds love it! Especially the tufted titmice, chickadees, cardinals, nuthatch, woodpeckers. So all in all I would say it is a success.

By The F. from Macungie, PA

Easy to fill and attracts cardinals as well as other song birds.

By Jerry A. from Jasper, AL

My wife liked it. We have several variations of bird feeders that are supposed to be squirrel proof. Time will tell, So Far So Good. It is unusual compared to what we can find in our area so that was good. I am going to purchase another one soon for my son who also has bird feeders in his back yard.

By Karen R. from Cincinnati, OH

This bird feeder is just fine, but wish I had bought a squirrel proof one to start with. So I will buy another and the first will have been a waste of money.

It is easy to fill and attracts the wrong birds, but an OK product.

Bought this for a friend. They love the color red but haven't had much activity yet. They just need to give it time.

By Patty G. from Vandalia, OH

I would give this feeder a 5 rating but the darn squirrels get into it all the time. I didn't realize how clever squirrels are. They are relentless. I love the feeder - the red shows up so well and at night the little birds are all over it.

By Carl S. from Excelsior, MN
August 6, 2008

The birds love it! The only problem is the floor of the feeder is flat. The birds eat the food from the sides and leave a mound in the middle. The floor needs to be convex to force the food to the edges. Other than that, I am very satisfied!

By Susan R. from Colorado Springs, CO

It was a gift to my adult daughter in Lake St. Louis and she likes it. The squirrels knocked it down during my visit and nothing broke. That's good!

By Camille A. from Indialantic, FL

It seems to work well. Cardinals are starting to discover it and eat in pairs.

By Joe M. from Voorhees, NJ
February 11, 2015

I love it for its appearance and the amount of seed it holds. It does attract the beautiful cardinals. Unfortunately, it took the squirrels about an hour to find it and they love it too. It seems I have more squirrels than birds feeding from it. About to give up.

By Howard S. from Hayward, WS
September 15, 2009

I have not seen any cardinals at this feeder because there are too many red winged blackbirds. Isn't there something that can be made to deter these annoying birds that chase other birds away. They say that blue jays are the bullies. That's not true they do not sit at the feeder for a long time. Thank you.

By Julia B. from Austin, TX
May 14, 2008

I was hoping it would be squirrel-proof, but it doesn't seem to discourage them at all. The birds haven't had a chance.

By Mike K. from Maplewood, NJ

I had high hopes, but have taken several pictures of the squirrels on the feeder. It is made well, but not really a "foil" for them.

By Claudia L. from Richfield, MN
January 12, 2008

I like the look of this feeder, but the only animals that have found it so far are the squirrels who find it very comfortable! So I am not too happy with it.

By Bob C. from Georgetown, TX

Cardinals will not use this feeder. However, sparrows love it.

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.
