Starlings love it

Bought this to give the smaller birds a chance as our feeders quite quickly get dominated by starlings. It worked for a couple of days but once the starlings had chance to devise a new strategy they have no problems using it. 3 are quite happily hanging off it as I type. Back to the drawing board!

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, the Favourties Feeder should give the smaller birds a better chance of feeding as it is harder for birds like starlings to hold on to the feeder. However as you have identified determined Starlings can use the feeder it is just uncomfortable for them to do so. It can help to have an alternate source for the Starlings which requires little effort for them to feed. They are less likely to bother with the effort of the Favourties Feeder if an easier supply is to hand. By MarkyT, on 5 Feb 2017

A bit disappointing

I bought this feeder so that the sparrows could feed while the starlings were dominating the other feeders. Sadly , the sparrows ignore it and the starlings guzzle from it! By SB, on 8 Jan 2017

Great for some small birds

I feel guilty!
I was using an aging seed feeder with big perches around the tray but doves and pigeons scoff everything and swing around as they hold on, which also scatters the seen everywhere.
So I swapped to this feeder a couple of days ago. It is great for blue tits, great tits, coal tits and goldfinch, though some look as comfortable as the birds in the product description photo and some are clinging rather more desperately, curled around underneath. It is well made and smart. I suspect it might be a little awkward to take the top off to refill with cold hands (it is quite wide to get a good turning grip). I just watched a grey squirrel fail to feed from it.
The thing I feel guilty about, is that the greenfinch and chaffinch hover in frustration. Some sometimes manage to grab a seed. I hadn't intended to exclude them so I'll have to put the old feeder back up to cater for these. By JE, on 26 Oct 2016
