I received this feeder on Wednesday. By Thursday afternoon the goldfinches were back and enjoying the thistle seed. There are even a few house finches that have figured it out. Now it is the squirrel's turn--the feeder is hanging from a branch on about a foot of chain. It seems to be just the right amount of length, as the squirrel can't quite reach it without leaving the branch and with nothing to hold on to, can't get to the seed. After about 20 minutes, he gave up leaving the seed for the birds!!!

I love this feeder, and so do the goldfinches. I've seen as many as 10 finches on it at one time. The feed lasts longer too, as it doesn't spill out as easily as other feeders. I highly recommend this feeder.

I bought 2 of these to replace the sock feeders I have. It took a day for the goldfinches to realize what it was. I did shake the feeders a little so that some of the seed would stick out and placed them next to the sock feeders. After 24 hours the finches started to use it. It will hold about 20 finches at a time ( I have the large size) and they look beautiful next to the black metal. It isn't difficult to see how much food is left if you look straight through the sides. You can also tell by the position of the birds on the tube. Happy birding!

This was our first bird feeder and the best one that we've purchased thus far...we now have two of these finch feeders...the finches hang around non-stop...we've lured some Pine siskins and sparrows as well...the squirrels seem to ignore this one - they thankfully are not too interested in the nyjer seed...I would completely recommend this bird feeder...it is good looking, simple and priced well...
No birds April 24, 2012
I got this to prevent the squirrels from getting the seed. Well I've got no squirrels and no birds. Not sure what the problem is, as I've had finches before using a cheaper feeder. Maybe I have some slow learning birds? Going to try another type feeder.

Thank you for submitting an online review for the Perky-Pet® 10" Metal Finch Feeder (model FF10). Birds are creatures of habit. It can take several weeks for them to take to a new feeder. For enthusiastic feeders like us, these few weeks can certainly feel like an eternity!
Try these tips to help attract birds to your new feeder: Temporarily take down any established feeders on your property. This will help them to find their new feeder. Once you notice birds feeding from your new feeders, you can replace the established ones. You can also try placing a shiny pan (like a pie pan) on the ground beneath your feeder to attract hungry birds.
We hope you find these tips helpful! If you have questions or need assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
