Mesh Ball Feeder Red
This is a very well made feeder and the little clinging birds such as chickadees and titmice love it! I purchased one in red and they loved it so much I got a green one. The birds were on it in minutes after I first hung it and the chickadees can barely stay off it long enough for me to fill it (and chirp at me while I fill it and delay them from their meal). The feeder is very sturdy, doesn't seem to rust, and the lid stays secured. The green matches Drs. Foster and Smith S hooks perfectly as well. This feeder works well with sunflower seed and the mess-free mixes with chunks of fruit. Other seeds with millet will fall through. The birds like to peck at the fruit in the mess free mixes through this feeder. Best news is I haven't seen the squirrel or the bigger birds on it either unless they find a branch to sit on.

The Mesh Ball Feeder is both economical, and effective as a feeder. Smaller birds like Finches and Sparrows have no trouble eating from the Mesh Ball, and larger birds are deterred from eating all the food, and depriving the smaller birds. well constructed, and well thought out.
It comes in red, and I would suggest YELLOW as an alternate color. accomodates up to 6 small birds. VERY popular. order more than one.

Really like this feeder
I really like this feeder. It's just the right size for my Cherry tree out back. I may have to pull my hopper feeder in this Spring to keep the bad birds away. They don't seem to notice/bother this one. The titmice and Chickadees use this feeder frequently. Sometimes the House Finches try to sit on a limb and peck at the side. It's nice to know I can still feed the good birds when I have to bring in the hopper feeder to keep the bad birds away.

I found this product to be very strong and durable.
My biggest problem are squirrels that chew and destroy my wood or plastic feeders.
This being all metal mesh has solved that problem. I also find that the lid fits snug and has never come off and the birds just love it.
Living in Ontario Canada this was the first time I have ordered something from Foster and Smith. Placing my order for a number of items, tracking it and receiving a carefully packaged parcel in less time then I expected went flawless. I would certainly recommend this company to friends and family.
I only wish that you offered more items available for shipment to Canada
