Droll Yankees
Almost 20 years ago I decided to buy a Droll Yankees steel 6 port seedfeeder as I was fed up with the squirrel wrecking the other feeders in a short space of time. The blurb on the description in the birdfeeding catalogue said it would be much longer lasting than other feeders and it has it has certainly lived up to its description! It has surpassed my expectations and despite being knocked out of the tree occasionally it is still going strong feeding my collection of wild birds here in Nottinghamshire, England after almost 2 decades. I was also recently delighted to discover that the ONYX range of feeders have the Droll Yankees name on them. I hadn't intended to buy one until I saw it in a shop and noticed the Droll Yankees name on it. Knowing the quality of the other DY feeder I am sure it will last just as well as it seems an equally sturdy design. The birds started using it as soon as I put it up and the perch design seems very practical for the less agile birds ( e.g. .the clumsy and timid chaffinches). Well done Droll Yankees !...... in this throwaway modern world it is great to have something that lasts a long long long time....

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.

Birds that use this feeder: Purple Finches, Redpolls, Goldfinches, Chickadees, Juncos, White Throated Sparrows, and more!

    I have had this feeder, Onyx Clever Clean thistle feeder, up for about a month. I have never seen a bird eat from this feeder. I think they like my black sunflower feeders more.

      Hello Alan,
      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. We are very sorry that you are not seeing birds on your new feeder. Birds are creatures of habit, and it can take them days or even weeks to use a new feeder. There is something new in the yard that they are not used to, and they need to warm up to it first.

      Temporarily placing the feeder near a shrub or tree where birds will feel safe can also encourage them to explore the new feeder. Adding something like a colorful ribbon can also help, as the movement in the wind can make the birds feel like another bird has found the feeder to be safe. We would suggest temporarily removing other feeders in the area so that the birds must use the new one. Oddly enough, filling the feeder half-full seems to help attract the birds to the new feeder. We hope that the birds begin to use the feeder soon, and please keep us updated! 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 am – 4:30 pm Mon-Fri (EST).

    I love this feeder so much I have four. Small & Large. Goldfinches, Nuthatches, Chickadees & Sparrow are on them constantly. The medal is very sturdy & I like that they can feed on the whole tube instead of a few selected holes. I use Niger/Sunflower chip blend. Giving one as a housewarming gift!

    The birds are ignoring this feeder. I hung it near a traditional Finch feeder with perches; and after 3 weeks there has been no activity.
