Original Absolute Feeder 14-1/2" x 11-1/4" x 9-1/4" high
This product defeats the squirrels.
My wife and I had a very old Absolute Bird Feeder which needed replacement. We loved the original and the new one has a nicer, textured, green finish. I found one in a store but my wife found the same one on this web site at a much better price.

Very satisfied with unit.
We are happy with the "Absolute Feeder". Installed for over a month and so far no squirrels were able to get to the bird feed. It is installed away from trees with the pole supplied with unit. I cemented the hole attachment with a cement mix - very sturdy. It is attracting a variety of birds. Small birds feed on the unit and doves, blue jays, etc. feed off droppings on the grass. I am using the one ounce setting. I have had one squirrel run up the pole to the backside of the feeder but he was unable to come around to the front. It is fun to sit at our breakfast table and watch his efforts in trying to get to the bird feed.
Very pleased with the unit and would recommend it.

This birdfeeder has proved to be wonderful. I have 2 of them in Switzerland and they are going into their 6th Winter in good condition. All wooden ones, however pretty, have long vanished into the rubbish bin. I feed over a hundred birds of all sizes through the cold months, they do love their residential villa. As this Winter will be spent in Germany I need 2 new Birdfeeder so that the word
spreads quickly about the new "restaurant".

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.
