Consumers and birds LOVE patented Songbird Essentials BirdQuest Spiral Feeders! More ports means more birds. Birds love to "Run The Spiral" instead of flying to another perch. This feeder not only looks great in your yard, it is also well made and affordable. 

- Lifetime warranty on workmanship and normal wear and tear.

- Aluminum and stainless steel parts.

- Squirrel-resistant with patented locking lid.  For best results, use a baffle or guard with this feeder, as desperate squirrels can and will chew through the plastic tube.

- Easy to clean: twist and clean (patent pending) bottom comes completely off for easy cleaning. This allows you to fill the top one time and the bottom the next. This means seed never gets old or moldy.

- Easy to hang: looped wire hanging cable included (150 lb. test) and attached. Holds cap, so you don't have to wonder where you put it.

- 2.5 Quart capacity (1.5 pounds).

- Optional 7.5" Seed Tray (sold separately)

- Use the SESQ83 12 inch Hanging Baffle or SE120 Copper 16 inch Weather Block Baffle to help protect your seed and feeder from squirrels and weather.

The finches love it more than when I had the sock feeder and my chipmunk friends can't eat through it!!

Well made looks better than ugly yellow style

Wonderful thistle feeder.

I bought the copper thistle feeder a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love it in the garden & the birds do too. It did take about a week for the finches to start using so be patient as they will adapt. I love the sealed bottom which eliminates a lot of waste vs. store bought ones. There is also the option to add a thistle ‘catcher’ on the bottom of this feeder, but I prefer to use as the picture is shown. Thank you Nature Niche for quality products so close to home!


I’m actually waiting to see. So far, I’ve seen one brave goldfinch alight upon the spirals, but immediately ditched it. Have seen no action since. Perhaps the wrong time of year? So far, waiting to see.

Thanks for your review! It may take several weeks for birds to start using a new feeder. During nesting season, many bird species do adjust their diet to insects but often the adults and fledglings will still come to feeders for a quick and easy meal. It just takes some time. If it's been 1-2 weeks with the same seed, you may need to ground feed what's in there, assuming no mold, and replace with fresh seed. Wild birds are picky and will favor feeders with fresh, clean seed.

Wished I had know to buy a squirrel cover, it’s not worth it with your handling and shipping costs for a lower priced item
