      Pigeon Heaven
      I first got the medium sized tray to keep seed from dropping to the ground. Feral pigeons were having a feast. It was too big, so I got the small one--still too big. The pigeons sit on it and eat to their hearts content. It's true, there is very little spillage, so fewer pigeons get fed, but the ones that do . . . ! I'm just waiting for the new batch of fledglings from them. And, yes, they hog up the feeder so the little birds don't have a chance. I've tried everything I know of to eliminate feral pigeons from my garden with little results.

      RSPB response: Thank you for your review, I am sorry that you are unhappy with this product. We do sell a Pigeon seed tray adaptor (R408662) which could be the product you need to allow your smaller birds to feed. Whilst it does not stop the pigeons from feeding from the tray, it separates the tray from the feeder so that the pigeons do not use the ports and smaller birds get a look in.

      Good for catching seed etc. But.......
      I bought four of these to stop so much seed being spilt by the Starlings who attack the feeders with such vigour the seed goes everywhere, the trays do seem to catch most of the food but not all of it, but the ground feeders do clean up most from the floor but still a lot gets wasted, however my disappointment is caused because the collared doves and even the larger pigeons, who now perch precariously on these trays and eat all the seed as though its their birthday, thus keeping the smaller birds away, and one pigeon has even managed to break one tray in half, I have thought about fitting a guardian to the feeders to stop the doves and pigeons, but does anyone know if a tray can still be fitted to a feeder underneath a guardian, I would like to know, and also if the starlings can still fit in through the guardian holes as I don't want to stop them from feeding.

      RSPB response:
      Thank you for your review. Our feeder guardians can be fitted with the base upside down, so that they catch the dropped seed. This is shown on some of the online photos.

      Poorly Sized for Easy-Clean Feeders
      I have just replaced this product after 4 years use as my original one cracked after I screwed it up too tight. It was also discoloured.

      I found this tray to be slightly too big for my old style RSPB seed feeder as doves, pigeons and even crows used it as a perch.

      However, with an Easy-Clean seed feeder I have found it to be an even more inconvenient size. This is because these new feeders have larger holes than the old model. In some ways that is good but I have found a huge amount of the seed now ends up on the ground because the larger birds are now able to make much more mess. Therefore if the tray were smaller the birds could not sit on it and if it were larger more seed would be caught.

      I would guess this is why the RSPB have designed a new, larger, tray. I am considering doing away with the tray and going back to not having one. Paradoxically, I suspect will result in less spillage.

      No more mess, no more waste!
      Our finches are terribly messy eaters, dropping half the food they pick up, and used to produce mounds of seeds under the feeders. Now what they drop lands on the trays and is actually eaten! I do see the occasional collared dove perching on one awkwardly but they never stay long and don't deter any of the smaller birds. But then we do scatter food on the ground for the doves and pigeons so they don't have to resort to acrobatics to get their bit. I'm glad I got the small ones though, they are plenty big enough for the largest size feeders.

      Disappointed
      Yes, it's a good, sturdy product and does catch most of the spilt seed, although the holes to let rain through could be a bit larger. However, the tray isn't anywhere near small enough as the collared doves (note the plural), have absolutely no difficulty perching on it I thought at first I had been sent the wrong size but, no, they are the small ones. After two weeks of use - fantastic delivery, by the way - I have removed the trays and will have to once again put up with seedlings and mess underneath. PLEASE, PLEASE, RSPB, produce a smaller tray so the little birds get a look in!!!!

      Does what it says on the tin
      I have these trays on all my seed feeders and wouldn't be without them. They catch all the spillage and rain water drains away quickly. Yes, they also catch bird droppings, but as they remove in seconds and can be cleaned and put back immediately, this is not a problem. Small birds use them as perches. Wood pigeons cannot land on the small trays successfully and gave up trying very quickly. They can (and do) land on the larger ones.

      Not recommended
      I had to remove this tray within a few days of attaching it to my nyjer feeder. Yes it catches a lot of the spilt seed, can't fault it there - but it also catches bird droppings and rain. Not only that but Pigeons & Collared Doves can perch on it and eat the dropped seed, scaring off the Goldfinches from the feeder (and this is the small tray... I imagine the bigger sizes would allow birds as large as Wood Pigeons to easily land and feed). Since removing the tray my local Goldfinches have been feeding a lot more peacefully. Unless the idea of Pigeons on your hanging feeders appeals to you then do not buy this product.
