Hiatt Manufacturing Cage Bird Feeder Selection
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.
This feeder is easy to fill an clean. It allows the small birds in to feed, yet keeps out the larger birds and squirrels out.
Squirrels can only get little. also holds enough for several days.
