The Droll Yankees New Generation Finch Flocker features an excellent design. With its durable construction, this feeder will serve the birds in your wildlife habitat faithfully, season after season. And our Finch Flocker Yellow is a sure way to attract the beautiful goldfinches.

  • Four perch locations allow several birds to eat simultaneously
  • UV Stabilized Polycarbonate feeder tube keeps the seed level visible at all times
  • An internal seed baffle directs seed to an additional seed port located at the lowest level of seed to ensure that the feeder empties completely without allowing seed build-up
  • Simply slide the die-cast metal cap up the hanger for quick, convenient filling with our large capacity Seed Scoop and cleaning using the Droll Yankees 24-inch Bird Feeder Brush
  • The yellow metal feeder base is equipped with drainage holes to dispel any water that gets inside and provide ventilation to keep seed dry and fresh
  • This feeder may be hung on the included metal loop hanger or use an 18-inch Locking Chain for complete security from falls. It can also be pole mounted using the Droll Yankees Garden Pole, Ultimate Deck System, Ultimate Yard System or Shepherd’s Envy Pole
  • Lifetime Warranty against squirrel damage
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Note: Attach a Droll Yankees A-6T Seed Tray or Omni Seed Tray to the feeder base to attract an even wider variety of birds. Use a Squirrel Guard over the feeder to baffle the squirrels.

Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush to brush away grime inside the tube.

    Seed slips down in between the plastic and the yellow base and it molds. There’s no way to clean this. I’ve been soaking it in 50/50 vinegar and water but now there’s just a bunch of pickled, moldy seeds mushed up in the base. This would be a great bird feeder if you could take it apart to clean it but that’s just not possible. Disappointed.

      Hello Lori, I am so sorry to read you are having difficulty taking this feeder apart to clean it. If you push the lowest silver perch rod though the feeder, the bottom base will fall off. You can then clean it, install the tube, and push the rod back through the feeder base and tube to put all it back together. For further instructions on taking this feeder apart you can refer to the instructions here on our website:

      I hope this helps restore your faith in our bird feeder.
      Chirp On, Christen

        Oh Gosh! That previous 2-star rating was a mistake. Thanks for the kind and helpful response! It totally works. This bird feeder is so sturdy and well made and my early attempts to take it apart yielded nothing. It felt so solid. I just had to use a little more force and it came apart nicely. It’s now perfectly clean and the birds are eating from it again.

        • Christen Brewer

          I’m happy to read that you found success in taking it apart! You may be able to update your rating now that you have your faith restored. Never hesitate to contact us if you need help in the future. We are always happy to be of help. Christen

    Changing my rating from 2-stars to 5-stars.
    Now that I know how to take it apart to keep it clean – I can honestly say this is a durable, functional, high quality bird feeder that the birds love.

    Have only had it for 5 days but I’m very happy with this feeder so far. It appears to be a very well thought out design. Rugged heavyweight metal construction so it doesn’t swing wildly in strong wind (which was tested on the 2nd day). It appears to be easy to clean too. Goldfinches found it the first day and have I’ve seen dozens of them feeding each day. No other bird species or squirrels have even looked at it. In a world rife with shoddy goods and wildly exaggerated claims it’s refreshing to see a product that exceeds my expectation. Naperville, IL

    I’ve had this feeder for nearly five years now. I have it on a shepherds hook in my front yard, and it has survived not one, but TWO black bear attacks. The yellow warblers are nuts about it. You seriously can’t go wrong with this feeder. It’s super durable and stands up to the elements. The construction is flawless. What plastic feeders do you know of, that can stand up to a bears teeth? IMO money well spent! 5-Stars!! -NJ.

    This is a great feeder but my local squirrels have destroyed the tube.

    I bought this bird feeder and it works great but… I don’t like the color. I get that yellow is supposed to attract finches but so do the neutral colored black and white sock nyjer feeders. Please, can you make this bird feeder in an elegant ‘black’ color? I prefer that it blends in neutrally with the trees and landscape around it.
    Thank you,
