Original Absolute Feeder 14-1/2" x 11-1/4" x 9-1/4" high
An excellent bird feeder!
The feeder is well designed and well constructed and easy to use.
I have it hanging below a large platform feeder along with a tube feeder for finches. The hanging feeders hang from a pole with a large squirrel deflector. At a setting of 2 Ounces, the largest bird I have seen feeding from the Original Absolute (green) feeder has been a Red Wing Blackbird. The smaller birds are so accustomed to the platform feeder that many of them contend with a feeder full of Grackles and Mourning Doves rather than feeding, below the platform, on the green feeder, in peace. The occasional intrepid squirrel which jumps from a tree to the platform feeder has shown no interest in the green feeder because it has the platform feeder all to itself.
I can't testify as to the green feeder's ability to defeat a clever squirrel. I wouldn't mount any bird feeder without a squirrel deflector.
I'm highly pleased with the feeder.

Instructions weren't perfectly clear. Should state that two pop outs are on each side. Works nicely except for one super smart squirrel who has figured out how to hang on the tree and twist the feeder so he can get in from the side. I'll fix him next time I fill it. I'll stop it from swinging side to side.

We recently purchased our 2nd Original Absolute Feeder. We have one at our home in upstate NY and this one was for our winter home in central FL. They are excellent feeders and absolutely keep the squirrels at bay. We go through much less bird food as the squirrels don't get a share.

Best Bird Feeder Ever
We bought this feeder as a replacement for the very same model that was at least 30 years old. The old one had been 'dropped' a few times, and some parts had just finally worn out. In fact, my husband replaced the wooden perch several times with items ranging from sticks to plastic covered wire. The new feeder is now hung and the birds are loving it. This is a sturdy, practical feeder that holds a lot of seed and offers feeding opportunities for various size birds, depending upon how you set the sensitivity level. We can vouch for it's excellent construction and overall quality. We fully expect this one to last another 30 years!
