Not working for the sparrows

My previous feeder guard was narrower in diameter so the pigeons, woodpigeons, magpies and squirrels had learned to cling on and poke through to extract the seeds. The sparrows used it all the time, also tits and goldfinches. Only the tits are using this new one. I've had it for a bit less than a couple of weeks. It's the sparrows i especially want to feed as so many people say they never see them nowadays and we have had good numbers for many years.I am not using the narrower guard on a separate feeder at the moment as I want the sparrows to get bolder and give it a go as i see at least one reviewer has had success with them. Still worried though!

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, I am sorry you are unhappy with this feeder guardian. It is good to hear you are concerned about the declining number of sparrows and wish to feed them., as they are now a red listed species. We do advise that it can take weeks, sometimes a few months, for birds to adjust and try new feeders or guardians. Hopefully your sparrows will be back feeding in no time! By Katherine, on 9 Oct 2017

Not working for me.

Great idea, unfortunately the Sparrows we have on a regular basis think otherwise. Had one Sparrow on the first day, since then nothing for 10 days. It does keep the pesky Pigeon off though. By DavidH, on 25 Jun 2017

Works a treat

I bought this reluctantly because of the other reviews. I have a medium feeder on the fence opposite one of the house windows. This was regularly visited by goldfinch, greenfinch and house sparrows. Today I am looking out at the feeder, in its guardian. There are two green finch parents in the feeder, with two fledglings picking through what is in the catcher tray at the bottom. Yesterday there were goldfinch in the feeder and again, the fledglings were happily walking around the catcher tray picking out seeds that had dropped down. The house sparrows have not been deterred either. And the big plus is the starlings can no longer perch on the feeder and shovel out the contents with their beaks.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review. It's great to hear your birds have taken well to your new guardian! By Kay, on 25 May 2017

Product information

Easy-to-assemble small guardian to fit our small Ultimate easy-clean nut and nibble, seed and nyjer feeders. This feeder guardian is strong, durable, and expertly-constructed from powder-coated steel, with no potential foot traps. The cage makes feeders resistant to larger birds and adult squirrels as well as protecting smaller birds from predators.

The space between the cage and the bird feeder is wider than in previous designs, making it harder for larger birds and adult squirrels to reach the feeder.

Refilling and cleaning the feeder is a doddle. The guardian slips over the feeder, then screws into place.

  • - Guardian measures 42cm x 23cm x 11.5cm
  • - Gaps measure 4cm x 3.5cm
  • - Seed tray included
