More information about versatile feeders like this one: Bird feeders that offer different foods allow for a variety of different visitors to that feeder. Consider changing your food offerings throughout the year to see which birds you can attract. Some food suggestions are suet balls, sunflower seed, Nyjer seed, fresh fruit, mealworms, safflower seed, white proso millet and premium seed mixes.

Feeding wild birds is one of the best ways to impact the world around you. The simple act of putting out a bird feeder and keeping it clean and full can greatly improve the chances that birds and their offspring will survive. Many backyard bird watchers believe that birds only benefit from feeders during certain times of the year. However, birds actually have a year-round need for reliable, steady food sources.

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.

    The absolute BEST, MOST VERSATILE high quality feeder on the market! I own six, covering the past 25 years. Just the right size, easy to clean. Adjustable canopy ideal for keeping unwanted birds out (aka-Starlings and Grackles). Hint: Be patient when adjusting canopy downward (a little at a time) so that your favorite “larger birds” (Cardinals) can learn to maneuver in and out of a lowered canopy, low enough to keep Starlings and Grackles out. An added bonus is that Droll Yankees actually honors their lifetime guarantee.

    I absolutely love this feeder. However I think its terrible that you do not provide an option to buy a replacement product for the feeder bowl in the event that it breaks. I would love to replace the bowls. The dome and hook are the strongest parts of the feeder. so now i have 2 feeders both without bowls. With no way to replace the bowls. When I called I called asking if it was possible to buy a replacement bowl for both feeders I was told that you do not offer that part. Neither is it available in your parts section. Due to the cost of the feeder I would like to recommend you change the design area of the nut. If several birds sit on one side of the feeder it starts to crack in the plastic area by the nut. Eventually it just breaks off after several lands. I have 2 of these and both bottoms have broken where the nut is located in the plastic bowl. That is the weakest part of the feeder. Washers on bottom and top of plastic would possibly help. It’s a shame at that cost you do not have replacement bowls available for purchase. Please consider adding that to your accessories replacement. It is a 5 star feeder and birds love it but it’s not worth paying another 60 dollars just to have my bowls replaced when my dome and hooks are in perfect condition.

    I have the same problem with the tray- the nut/plastic failed and dropped the tray. It is a great feeder and worth the price you charge for the whole unit. – But I do not need the whole unit. Just the tray with the nut.
