Really good, but required modificationOur window feeder has worked really well. We are lucky in having trees near to the window of our flat, so the birds use the trees as a staging post to check for danger before making the short jump to the feeder. Two pairs of bullfinches particularly enjoy visiting.
However, some clever magpies worked out how to fly just right and tuck themselves in to land at the feeder. They then emptied the whole thing for their friends to gobble up from the ground. I glued two small pencils to the corners of the feeder, which stopped that though, so its quite fixable if you find yourselves with a magpie problem. By Ali, on 9 Apr 2017
Very disappointedI bought 2 of these a few weeks ago. No birds have used them. A squirrel got in once, fed himself and hasn't been back.
RSPB response: Thank you for your review, sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the porthole window feeders. It can take a while for birds to come to new feeders especially if there are other feeders they use in the area. One thing to do is make sure the food is very obvious as a window is not a natural feeding site for a bird so they need to be able to see it easily at least until they have found it. The product was tested and found to be effective, birds did use them. By Novice watcher, on 8 Jan 2017
