Suet Feeder Selection
A suet feeder can come in almost any size or design, from a squirrel-proof plantation cage to an ornate bird chalet. What they share is the common ingredient inside. Suet is a mixture of fruit, seed, peanut butter and other grains that are processed to form a cake that acts as a high source of protein and energy for many bird species. One of the benefits of a suet feeder is that it doesn't have the mess potential of other grain feeders.
A suet feeder will attract a huge variety of birds, such as blue jays, chickadees and magpies, so be prepared to welcome plenty of new friends to your yard. And don't forget, suet feeders, like all our products, come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can rest assured you'll get the product that matches your needs.
Feeder is larger and much more sturdy than my old one, which squirrels broke when they thought they were birds
I just love this bird house suet feeder, as my birds and woodpeckers do too. It is so cute and unusual. Anybody who sees it always complements. I am on my third one. The only complaint is it doesn't weather well or stand up the birds beaks, claws, etc, and the occasional squirrel hanging on. I had read somewhere about putting 3 coats of clear polyurethane spray on it to make it last longer. I did that (it's nice and shiny) and am hoping it will last longer-time will tell. Otherwise, highly recommend.
It has reduced the number of suet cakes that we have to buy. It didn't take long for the birds to learn how to get inside the cage to eat the suet. The woodpecker and still get to the suet.
The feeder keeps the squirrel out. The chain is weak, it broke after about a month.
Nice large suet holder. Woodpeckers and nuthatches love it. Holds 4 cakes, so less fills.
Great product. Works as advertised.
I had to modify the suet cage on the inside to accommodate a plastic cup to hold grape jelly for feeding Baltimore Orioles. It took the Orioles several days to figure out how to get through the outside cage. I would suggest development of a similar cage that serves the purpose of feeding the Orioles. We have robins and blackbirds that eat the grape jelly set out for the Orioles.
This is the best bird feeder I ever had. I buy more expensive seed for the beautiful song birds I get & decided to spend the extra money when the starlings were eating everything! Now I have my song birds again. Also not wasting my money.
