    Started construction of a feeding station & this was my feeder of choice. What a gem of design! Holds a good amount of seed. Clear weather guard and just the right gaged wire give the feeder an uncluttered look. Totally pleased with this purchase.

    I live in S.Florida and use this feeder for millet starting in late September when Painted Bunting arrive for the winter. They really like it. Keeps squirrel, Grackles, and Blue Jays out. One male Cardinal has figured it out. This is one nice feeder,worth the money. Mine is on a pole with squirrel guard.

    Feeder is great at keeping out large birds,. Somewhat surprisingly the stainless steel washers on the bail handle prevent the squirrels from getting in the feeder tube. when they jump from trees overhead. I have the feeder on a post in a location which has allowed me to evade the black bears. I’ve also got a tray.squirrel baffle underneath to catch the seed that is dropped, and the cardinals and a few other birds enjoy that too.

    Fantastic feeder but unbelievable difficult to clean thoroughly.

    • Droll Yankees

      Hi Carol,
      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. We’re sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties cleaning your feeder. I am including a link to the instruction manual in the hopes that this can remedy your difficulties with cleaning the feeder.

    Hello Bruce,
    Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. I am sorry that you’re having no success at all deterring squirrels from your feeders. Squirrels are so clever and relentless and it seems sometimes that they’re smarter than most other animals. One of the biggest challenges to feeding wild birds—our own challenge too—is deterring squirrels. We work on a daily basis to create quality products and cultivate good advice that will help us all win this fight.

    I can completely sympathize with your squirrel frustration. My goal is to help restore your faith in our products by offering you some squirrel-proof advice. The key to successfully keeping a feeder squirrel-proof is its placement. Squirrels are agile and are able to jump up to 8ft horizontally and 4ft vertically. For this reason, we recommend that feeders be placed 8ft away from any structures that they can climb on, so that they do not reach across to access the feeding holes. It can be helpful to trim back and prune any nearby bushes or branches within 12ft of a feeder. We also recommend that feeders be placed higher than 4ft off the ground, preventing the squirrels from jumping and grabbing onto the bottom. If you are using a hook or pole, we recommend that the hook have at least a 16in distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success.

    If you make sure to properly place any of our squirrel-proof feeders, I am confident that you will start having success in deterring the squirrels. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7:30am – 4:30pm (Mon-Thurs) & 7:30am – 2pm (Fri) EST. We hope this helps you get back to feeding birds and thwarting squirrels!

    Warranty not honored! We have this feeder, and the crafty squirrels literally unhooked the feeder from the pole. Apparently, when the feeder hit the ground, the clear dome cracked into several pieces. Upon calling Droll Yankees, I was informed that the warranty does not cover squirrel damage, and that the new clear dome would cost $25!!! I had to laugh. $25??? I thought the man was joking. Do not buy if you intend on having Droll Yankees honor any type of warranty.

    • Droll Yankees

      Hello Cookie,
      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. We always recommend that bird feeders be securely hung using a securely fastened hook or shepherd’s pole that is capable of holding the combined weight of a fully filled feeder and the wildlife for which it is designed, since sometimes wind and storms, or even some wildlife, can cause the bird feeder to fall if the device used to hang such feeder is not properly secured or is not designed for that particular use. Since we’re not able to control the ways that our customers hang their feeders, the warranty for the product doesn’t cover damage from falls (For more warranty information, please click here). The warranty covers your feeder itself, including directly squirrel-inflicted tube holes, chews, etc. and parts we used that turned out to be defective.

      If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7:30 am – 4:30 pm Mon-Thurs & 7:30 am – 2 pm Fri (EST).

      Thank you for flying with our flock, and we wish you the best in birding!

    I have sent you photos of squirrel damage and all the company said “we’re sorry we can not help you”

    • Droll Yankees

      Hello Warren,

      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. The Droll Yankees Lifetime Warranty against squirrel damage covers damage directly done by squirrels, e.g. chews to the feeder that make the feeder unusable due to the damage. It also covers defective parts, which are defects or flaws that inhibit the correct use of the feeder. The warranty applies to the original purchaser for as long as they own the feeder.

      The Lifetime Warranty doesn’t cover falls (even if the squirrel makes the feeder fall; Droll Yankees is not responsible for how a feeder is hung), damage caused by weather, or ordinary wear-and-tear of the product that will happen over time (like everything, bird feeders gradually lose their luster and need fixing up; defective parts become obvious soon after purchase, not after years of normal use). Defects are present at the time of purchase and manifest themselves promptly; normal wear-and-tear happens gradually over time.

      The Lifetime Warranty doesn’t cover cosmetic damage that doesn’t compromise the effectiveness of the feeder (scraped or peeling paint, scratches or yellowing to the tube, etc.), even if the scratching or scraping is caused by squirrels.

      Entire feeders are not replaced. Only individual defective parts and squirrel-damaged parts.

      If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7:30 am – 4:30 pm Mon-Thurs & 7:30 am – 2 pm Fri (EST). We look forward to helping you get back to feeding the birds!

    Best squirrel proof feeder we have found. They climb, they stick their little paws in and their head in but htey can’t reach the food. The smaller birds figured it out pretty easy, but it took the cardinals a few weeks to become really accustomed to it. 2 months into it and so far so good.
