It’s empty in here!
With my previous feeder, slightly bigger than this one, I used to have to fill it daily. This feeder has been up in the same position and has yet to receive its first bird customer after 2 months! I am considering enlarging the feeder holes to see if this improves things.
bought in January i thought it was a big improvement on the plastic feeders, looks and smells nice, but the opening for the food to be available is so tiny and it's never been used despite having over a dozen blue tits and robins in garden feeding on seed feeders, suet pellets, fat balls and an open feeding platform. disappointing., i think the openings are too small and wonder if this individual feeder was not put together properly.
food seems to get mould much quicker in this feeder than in a plastic one, shame as it is very attractive
The natural look of this design suits most gardens better than do the plastic equivalents. The cedar wood makes for greater durability. These feeders are sturdy and decorative. They are easy to fill (simply lift the "roof"), provided you have not hung them up too high. They come with a durable metal string, so they are ready to hang. The only draw back is the relatively low capacity and that is made even less, as the birds can not get to the seeds which are lying below the lowest feeding holes.
