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 lloks 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--just twist and lock.  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).

-Tray sold separately.

- Use the SESQ83 12 inch Hanging Baffle to help protect your seed and feeder from squirrels and weather.

Suggestions?

The feeder is easy to fill and looks like it should be busy, but it isn't! I have only seen a couple of chickadees on it, and they immediately left for the other feeder. Any suggestions? Should I move it away from the sunflower seed feeder? Is it the wrong time of the year to start feeding finches? I had many finches earlier in the summer, but now it's hard to tell who's out there. In any case, they are not using the new feeder.

Hi Cassandra,
Now's an okay time to start feeding finches, although there are a lot of natural seed resources for them to choose from. No, I don't think you need to move the feeder. I have mine together on a feeder pole and both sunflower and finch feeders are getting good activity.

We've had a lot of warm rainy weather locally, so I recommend checking the status of the seed in the tube feeder--is it clumped and starting to mold at the bottom? With weather like we've been having, and nyjer and other fine finch seed mixes' propensity for clumping, I've been shaking the seed in my spiral feeder daily and using the Feeder Fresh product we carry to improve drainage:

If the seed has been in there longer than 1-1.5 weeks, I would dispose of it, clean the feeder, let dry completely, and refill. Maybe only partially fill, if the finches aren't depleting the seed within a week or less. This time of year with more rain and still relatively warm temperatures is challenging, so keep a close eye on the seed and mold issues. Hope this helps!

Spiral Finch tube feeder

Installed our feeder first thing in the morning the day after we purchased it. Within minutes, we had several Finches feeding. They love it, and it is very easy to refill.

Best finch feeder

Finches love this feeder and this is the third one I have ordered. You need to watch for squirrels as the can chew larger holes in the feeder.
