Does a Good Job

This has been very effective so far in keeping out the larger, pesky birds and allows easy access for the smaller birds to enjoy the seed log. I do have a red bellied woodpecker who does his best to lean in and nibble , and I’m always glad to see he successfully gets a bite. It’s the starlings and grackes that I want to keep out because they clean me out in a matter of hours.

Seed cylinder feeder

I love that the squirrel cant get to it but have yet to have any birds
In it to eat is there something i need to do to have them do this.
Also the starlings can't get to the feed either which is a very good thing cause they eat everything up

Smaller birds protected. Bird seed lasts longer. Bigger birds still get what’s on the ground.

I am happy with this feeder

I'm very happy with this cylinder feeder so far. I have had a real problem with a flock of female red-winged blackbirds cleaning out my feeders and bullying the other birds. I switched to feeding all safflower seed, including a safflower seed cylinder but the Downey Woodpeckers went away. Now I can put the Downeys' favorite seed cylinder without fear of starlings or blackbirds getting to it. It took about five or six days before any bird ventured in. At first it was the Carolina Wren, then a Palm Warbler. Just yesterday for the first time I saw one of the Downeys inside on the cylinder pecking away! I am very happy with this feeder. Pictures below of our little Carolina Wren.

So glad you and your birds are enjoying this feeder! Yes, it can take a couple of weeks for the birds to figure out the barrier guard, but once they do, it's a very nice solution. Have fun watching your birds!

Sturdy & attractive

I put this feeder out right away. Birds have not shown any interest yet in over one week. I hold out hope that they will eventually figure it out. The feeder is lovely & very sturdy. I wish I could add the perching system but read that it doesn’t work on this particular feeder? I’m happy with my purchase, but I would be over the moon if the bluebirds & finches would actually USE it! Patience is a virtue…

Thank you for your kind review!
Yes, it can take the birds anywhere from 2-4 weeks to find, get comfortable with and use a new feeder. Unfortunately, the barrier guard perch accessory doesn't work with this feeder. There isn't enough room underneath the feeder to screw in both the cylinder rod and the perch. It can be helpful to place your feeder by other feeders or by a shrub that your birds frequent. That way they can check out this new food source and also get to shelter quickly.
We encourage our customers to give their birds a little more time, and hopefully you all will be enjoying your new feeder soon!
