This Garden Song classic bird feeder serves as a welcoming feeding station for birds. It provides six feeding ports staggered around the lower half of its long, skinny, tubular frame. Each feeding port provides a unique T-shaped perch that offers stability and comfort, encouraging birds to sit and dine for as long as they like. Made of durable plastic, the bird feeder features a transparent reservoir that allows for monitoring seed levels at a glance. The top, bottom, and each feeding port and perch come in a lovely forest green color that works as an eye-catching accent, nicely accommodating surrounding decor and natural landscaping.

Easy to Fill and Clean

When it’s time to fill the feeder, simply unscrew the reservoir from the base and tip the unit upside down. Pour in up to 1.75 pounds of seed, screw the base back on, flip it over, and it’s ready to go. The bird feeder can be filled with a variety of seed, including black oil sunflower seed, safflower seed, and mixed seed. Be sure to keep this classic bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure happy, healthy birds and many return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it at least twice a week with a mild soap and water solution, more often in very warm climates or seasons.

Suggested Placement

After filling this classic bird feeder with seed, use the plastic loop hanger to hang the feeder near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.

Practical more than ornamental. I like to switch off my feeders at least once a week to do a thorough cleaning, and so I have a lot of extra feeders. This feeder is plastic and the bases, perches, and top are green.

Great for Apartments I have this feeder placed right outside my window of my ground floor apartment. I originally got it for the cats’ entertainment, and am glad I did.I originally had a feeder bell hanging from the second floor apartment’s balcony, but decided it wasn’t enough.I purchased this feeder for the sparrows and used the cheapest bird feed available. After I switched to sunflower seeds only I am now getting sparrows, finches and starlings. The down side being that the perches were not designed for starlings so they have to reach around to one of the other holes to get their food.Anymore, I can get 5 or so on it at once with two or three hanging out on the chain it hangs from waiting in line.I really love this little feeder and have had it since December ’08. Never once had a problem with squirrels, but it may be because of the way I have it set up.

Not recommended if you have any squirrels in the area I don’t recommend this feeder if you have squirrels nearby. In three week’s time, squirrels gnawed the plastic perches off, chewed the plastic ports until feed poured out, and destroyed the plastic bottom cap, completely emptying the feeder’s contents onto the ground. This is an inexpensive feeder that is not unattractive, but squirrel-proof it definitely is not.
