Droll Yankees
Without a doubt the best feeder I have ever owned. Within 30 minutes of filling them, the birds started feeding. This feeder has attracted sparrows, finches, cardinals, blue jays, red-headed woodpeckers, orioles, and even green quaker parrots in TX. I have had my oldest B-7 for 8 years now and it still looks great. I have tried numerous other feeders, but none compare to the Droll Yankees brand for outstanding quality materials and workmanship. Best of all, the birds absolutely love the B-7. If you want a bird feeder that will last and last, AND attract a variety of birds, get a Droll Yankees B-7.

    My Original B-7 feeder has served me for many years (1977) and through four states until destroyed by a black bear here in Pennsylvania. It is the best birdfeeder I have ever owned. I am hoping the B-7F has not changed and will replace my original.

    I have seven feeders, four of the classic, two wicked tall, and i’m not sure what the short one is called. I’ve had it for 30 years, or well it’s been in my family for 30 years. It was a christmas gift about 30 years ago.

    Mine only lasted about 15 years til a bear got it and even then it was still useable. I was just concerned about rain getting thru the teeth holes. Bought 2 more but bring them in at night. Maybe these will last 30 years

    Absolutely!!! In Iowa we have lots of wind and storms. Best feeder we have ever owned. Squirrels can’t get to it. It holds 8 pound of bird seed. Less time filling the feeder all the time. We bought on last year and I’m ordering another one today. I’m hoping the B-7F is identical to the B-7.

    Have had it over 25+ years! Feed year round. Placed in full sun area– UV finally killed the tube (ordering a replacement tube). Best feeder I have had by far. Worth every cent!

    My B-7 feeder was purchased in December 1972 when living in New Hampshire and has served well in Virginia and back home in my native Vermont ever since. It has survived two episodes with bears with no damage other than a bent perch. Many other extra bird feeders have been purchased since and most have failed to stand up as well. Frankly, I think any money invested in bird feeders other than those from Droll Yankees is simply wasted. Droll Yankees B series bird feeders are clearly the best ones built.

    I bought my first B-7 sometime around 1977. Still good today. I bet I put several tons of sunflower seeds thru this feeder … No other feeder is better, all others have failed. I plan to take it with me on every move until “death do us part”….

    I recently acquired an original B-7 Feeder, from a Goodwill store… for pennies. The feeder is in excellent condition. It measures 30 inches from top to bottom and has a clear catch tray around the bottom of it. I also has a clear tube attached to the bottom of it that is 4-5 inches. I don’t know its purpose, but will have the feeder filled with sunflower seed and hanging off a 10foot rod from a very tall tree, by this weekend. I also have several other Droll Yankee Feeders.
