Cardinal No/No Feeder w/Free Book 11-1/2" dia x 7" h
My Birds LoveThis Feeder
I bought this to attract Cardinals to my new home. They have come with other small birds and all seem to love it. Singing is in the air and hopefully nests will be built close.
No problems with squirrels as it has a locking mechanism. It is easy to fill with a mixture of sunflower seeds and peanuts and it holds a large quantity so that it lasts almost a week.

Very well made
A very well made feeder. I believe it will last many years. Has a durable, hard finish / paint. Plenty of drain holes to let moisture out. Although it is advertised as a " Cardinal feeder " i get a wide varity of birds visiting all the time. The Cardinals do visit often, sometimes two - three at a time. It did take quite a while for the Cardinals to start using it, but thats just their shy nature i think.
The feeder will hold a lot of seed which is good, i dont have to refill so often. Given its size and capicty, it is a bit heavy so be sure that it is on a good solid support. I use a combination of black oilers and safflower seed. Smaller seed would spill out to much. I have never had a squirrel try to get on it, but if one did, i doubt very much that it could do any damage to the feeder, its entirely made of metal. If a squirrel does get on it, it can get to the seed as there is no type of baffle or barrier system.....

The plus of this feeder is that it is squirrel proof.

This bright red bird feeder adds so much color beside my other drab feeders.
I ordered this feeder to fill with safflower seeds so that I could attract cardinals while discouraging squirrels. It has a generous area for the birds to perch and the roof keeps the seeds dry.
