Cage Bird Feeder Selection
A cage bird feeder is ideal for preventing squirrels or large nuisance birds from swiping your bird seed--some of them are so tough they even keep out bears! Constructed from either wire or mesh, a cage bird feeder can be purchased in a variety of stylish designs, from slender peanut feeders to large wire cages. A cage bird feeder will attract both clinging and perching birds. They are typically easy to clean--some are even dishwasher friendly--and can serve up to 20 birds at once.
A cage bird feeder can hold many different kinds of seed, which means it has the flexibility to attract a number of bird species.

It is a good thing I know how to repair things. The first couple of days the bigger birds tried to get to the food, they broke the chain on top and when it hit the ground the lid keepers bent and the lid would not stay closed. I got some of my nylon braided cord out and replaced the lid keepers and made a new tether that replaced the chain. Now ti works great and I have no problems.
Wonderful feeder. I hang feeders on a 15' tall anti-bear pole and want easy to open and fill feeders. This one is very easy to fill. It does not allow anything larger than a Downy Woodpecker in. The open mesh bottom prevents buildup of debris and bird waste. Attracts huge number of Goldfinches, House Finches, Downy Woodpeckers and other smaller birds. Grackles CANNOT get food from this feeder. Sadly, English Sparrows can, but they do not overwhelm the other birds. I have been using it for many weeks now, and it is clearly the best feeder of its type I have ever used in well over 20 years of bird feeding.
We bought this for the little birds and not for squirrels this keeps the big birds from eating the suet and we love it
Best bird feeder I ever bought. Blue Jay's love it and I placed it right outside my livingroom windows so I can sit and watch them steal the peanuts. I rate it a 10 and highly recommend it.
I thought it would be bigger. But the squirrels and tree squirrels can still get into the seeds.
