No birds yet

No birds have used the feeder yet. One bird landed on it and thought about trying to go inside, but decided not to. That’s why I’m giving it three stars I will update my review with more stars or if you were in a couple of weeks if given the opportunity.

Looks good

I got this feeder to stop the grackles from eating all the suet, and it works wonderfully for that. One brave little wren flew in as soon as I hung it, but none of the other birds seem to like it, preferring the seed feeder. I’m hoping more will come in the future.

Thanks for your feedback! Yes, it may take a couple of weeks for the birds to adjust to the new feeder. The braver birds won't take quite as long :) I had a chickadee checking out then using daily the bluebird version of this feeder, but it took the bluebirds about a week to make the adjustment.

Nothing so far

This has been hanging in the tree for two weeks now and I've only seen one bird access it. No squirrels have gotten in it though. Hopefully birds will acclimate to it and start eating the suet.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, it can take 4 weeks or more for birds to find and acclimate to a new feeder.  It sounds like they are beginning to do so!

Starling fortress

I love how this feeder is constructed to keep starlings and squirrels out of the suet cakes, unfortunately there are not a lot of little birds going inside the cage to feed. I guess they are scared. It is a nice looking feeder, maybe in time the goldfinches and nuthatches will enjoy it too !

Thanks for your review! Yes, it can take several weeks for birds to adjust to and/or find a new feeder.

Double suit feeder

Nice feeder. Holds the suite well but no birds using it yet. Not sure if the season for them is over here in the PNW, if the big birds scared all of them away or if the smoke from the fires is keeping them away but there Are no little birds to be seen at this time using it. In fact very few birds out at all. But love the feeder. Just need birds to start to use it.

Thank you for your feedback! Suet is a great item to feed year-round, as it's a high-energy food that many bird species enjoy. Yes, the smoke and ash are likely contributing to your lack of birds right now. Hang in there and take care--the birds will be back and glad for the easy meal, once they can find it!
