I'm definitely a bird watcher. I have many, many bird feeders in my yard. It's not always easy finding a sturdy, weatherproof feeder and one that the squirrels will stay away from. Well, this is the one. It's quite large and holds a lot of seed. The birds in my yard had no problem loving this feeder. They went right to it the minute I hung it from the tree. I purchased two of them and I'm happy with my purchase. There are bird feeders out there by the dozens, but very few of them are made well. I'd rather invest in one that lasts a few years than try to go the cheap route. I love my birds through the harsh winters months and the worse of thunder storms. Therefore, I want a well made feeder that lasts. I got these feeders for a very good price thanks to Overstock and their coupons. Love them!
