    This feeder is a must for people who love birds. I enjoy it because it has a feature to adjust what kinds of birds eat from the feeder based on their weight. I also enjoy it because squirrels cannot eat from this feeder.

  2. Warren E. (verified owner)

    This feeder keeps those pesky squirrels out of the bird feed. I have tried others and they just do not work as well as this feeder.

  3. Arthur T. (verified owner)

    The feeder is a good product!

  4. Charles H. (verified owner)

    I was sick and tired of the squirrels emptying my bird feed from my bird feeder until I purchased the Heritage Farms’ squirrel proof bird feeder. The squirls now eat bird seed from the ground because, they can’t eat seed from the bird feeder. The price was well worth it and the shipping was prompt.

  5. Barry B. (verified owner)

    Just what I was looking for at the right price.

    This bird feeder has confused the local squirrel population, but it has also taken the cardinals a month to try it out. We see all types of other birds use it. Overall, we are pleased with your product!

    I must have very smart squirrels. They hang upside down off the side and eat the seed by sticking their heads under the bar. It is still a good bird feeder.

  8. Tim K. (verified owner)

    One of the best feeders I now own. It REALLY keeps the squirrels from getting all of the expensive seeds that they were getting before.

  9. Sharleene S. (verified owner)

    Great! Works well and has easy access to add bird food.

  10. James H. (verified owner)

    This is a good feeder that is durable. I use two of them. If you use them, you should check them frequently for trapped birds. I have had to rescue smaller birds, such as juncos and chickadees that get trapped inside.

    It is easy to use, birds love it, and squirrels hate it!_x000D_
    What more can one ask?

    I purchased this for my grandson-in+law in Arkansas as his last feeder was destroyed by deer. I have had one for several years to prevent squirrels from eating the bird seed. We must have smart squirrels in California as they have become acrobats and have been able to get to the bird food anyway. Also I recommend that you make the perch out of metal as the squirrels have chewed threw the wooden perch. At least the squirrels have not been able to destroy the metal container._x000D_

    I like the bird feeder HF7511I I purchased! The order process was simple for the internet and the product was delivered as advertised. This is a good and easy site to maneuver. Keep up the good work.

    This feeder does exactly what it claims – feeds_x000D_

    how to get at the bird seed was very entertaining. We especially like the fact that_x000D_
    it holds enough bird seed so that frequent_x000D_

    The feeder I have is the single side & the birds seem to love it.I called the supplier & said there was as much seed on the ground as there was in the feeder.They sent me a screen to hold back some of the seed to prevent the seed from being pushed out of the feeder.It didn’t work.None of the birds came back.I removed the screen & the birds came back.It must have been that the screen held back the larger seed & prevented the smaller seeds from coming forward. Other than that the feeder pulls in a lot of birds. I just have to clean the top every time I put more seed in it. Great feeder.

  16. Brenda S. (verified owner)

    Love the bird feeder. It keeps the squirrels out so only birds can eat from it. Our other feeders are over run with squirrels.

  17. Carolyn H. (verified owner)

    The birds love our new feeder. It is sturdy enough to allow the larger birds to use it without a problem. We are really happy to have bought It is a quality item.

  18. Donna R. (verified owner)

    We love the feeder…the birds do as well. We were looking for a feeder to attract Cardinals. So far we’ve only seen a few actually feed from the perch…they feed mostly on the ground under the feeder. Perhaps it takes some time for them to feel comfortable with this need feeder in our yard. It’s a nice sturdy feeder that is easy to fill. We mounted it on a pole. Looks great and should last a long time.

  19. Marcella B. (verified owner)

    My son bought me this feeder for Christmas two years ago. The squirrels have given up trying to get to the seeds and I now have many more birds feeding in my backyard. My only complaint is that too many of the seeds fall to the ground while the birds are feeding.

  20. Jc S. (verified owner)

    This feeder is great! We had squirrel problems with feeders in the past, but not with this one. And it is very easy to keep filled with seed, and it attracts cardinals, blue jays, and the like. We are very happy with this squirrel proof bird feeder.

  21. Brian C. (verified owner)

    I haven’t seen the bird feeder because I bought if for my father and had is shipped directly to him. He tells me that it is, indeed, squirrel-proof and it has provided great entertainment watching the squirrels try to eat from it.

  22. Mike S. (verified owner)

    Once I closed off the whole in the side, the squirrels gave up. It works better than any other feeder I’ve tried._x000D_

  23. Mary L R. (verified owner)

    I think the product is an excellent one and since I have used it, I have been getting a variety of birds, when I purchased the feeder I thought it was a smaller version of the double sided one I already owned, this is a one side feeder.The only con I had was it was not made in America.

  24. Art S. (verified owner)

    I prefer a balance system on the bar rather than the spring that is currently on there.

  25. Lois S. (verified owner)

    The way the “floor” slopes (or doesn’t) does not allow the seeds to slide to the front. A similar one we have does. And, our local squirrel likes to sit on the roof and scoop the feed out of the tray. NOTHING IS SQUIRREL PROOF!

  26. Sue B. (verified owner)

    Positive: Quality, sturdy construction. Holds more seed than a cylinder feeder, requiring less frequent refills. Haven’s seen any squirrels feeding._x000D_
    Minus: still working on best hanging position, when level, birds eat my chipped sunflower seed from front openings, & then I manually tip remaining seed (from back of feeder to front) – doesn’t have the advantage that gravity provides in a cylinder feeder.
