    Here's a wonderful way to feed and watch wild birds up close. The tough, non-yellowing polycarbonate bird feeder attaches to your window with three strong suction cups and the tray detaches easily from the roof/back section (without removing the suckers) for cleaning and refilling.

    Suitable for year-round feeding - and a fabulous gift for anyone.

    How to install your window feeder
    - Ensure the window is clean and dry.
    - Soak the suckers in warm water to make them pliable, then fit them onto the back plate of the feeder.
    - Attach the back plate to the window, without the food tray.
    - Leave for at least 3 hours before attaching the food tray, to give time for the suckers to settle and achieve maximum adhesion.
    - If desired, attach a length of string to the feeder to tether it. This will ensure that the feeder won't fall to the ground if it does come unstuck or is dislodged.

    Try a jaunty angle!
    I've had this feeder for a few months and have really enjoyed seeing the Robins and other small birds that feed regularly. In the last couple of weeks though a couple of huge wood pigeons have worked out how to use the feeder and I was contemplating removing it completely to prevent the mess, noise and risk to my neighbour downstairs when it falls off the window. After I fixed the feeder at a 45 degree angle the wood pigeons who prefer level surfaces can't seem to land and get a grip but the small birds are still quite happy. One downside is having to fill the tray more frequently as it now won't hold as much, but so far so good.

    Not as good as porthole feeder
    We have a Porthole feeder, so thought we'd try this on another window.

    However the quality of the product is reflected in the price - it is quite fragile - don't drop it!
    The tethering option is obviously a good idea - we didn't spot that advice when we bought it.

    It is not as well made as the porthole feeder, and has the disadvantage as noted by others of being very open to what some find less desirable birds and to squirrels.

    So very much regret we wouldn't recommend it - buy the more expensive version!

    great in many ways but...
    wonderful for small birds and great to get close-ups, but why make it so that a pigeon can get in? Now the pigeons have worked it out, they hoover up the food then make it fall off the window. Please redesign with a smaller gap!

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review, we understand you frustrations with pigeons being able to access the feeder although it should be reasonably difficult for them. However we also need to make sure that birds have a clear escape route should they feel threatened by predators. Therefore all our window feeders are open to allow easy access.

    Very happy
    I bought this a couple of months ago and the birds love it! I had been using the smaller tray but the bigger birds, especially the magpies were muscling in a lot. This one is much better, the birds loved it straight away as I think they feel more secure - it is much more secure. Blackbirds that were timid about the old one use this a lot. All the usual small birds use it a lot. The magpie has now sussed it out so might have to try to think up a cunning way to stop them. Unlike djc below my magpies are perching on the front like everyone else.

    Patience will be rewarded
    I was bought this as a gift for Christmas and after waiting several weeks with no little visitors in February I have been rewarded with lots of visiting birds. I placed the feeder to the side of the window slightly behind the curtain so I wouldn't disturb too much if I was moving around inside the house, but I still get a great view.
    It took several weeks for the birds to pluck up courage, but they eventually couldn't resist the meal worm and buggy fat treats I put in there along with the sunflower hearts. I have a garden feeder a short distance away and keep that filled with general seed for the bigger birds (and little ones if they so desire) so that they don't get tempted to land on the this feeder.
    The robin was the first to arrive, followed by the blue tits and sparrows. The starlings do come now and again but I have hung a buggy fat feeder on the main bird table and most prefer the ease of that.
    Absolutely love this item, have now filled my camera up with cute photos!

    RSPB response: Thank you for your lovely review, it's great to hear that both you and the birds are enjoying the window feeder!

    The birds used this pretty much straight away, perfect!
    As soon as I had put this up on the kitchen window Robin was quick to make his way into it followed by the Blackbirds and then Pied Wagtail. I love sitting and eating dinner and seeing the birds 'join' us for food.

    No complaints at all, find it very sturdy and easy to stick, it's strong and the birds love it! Highly recommended to anyone wanting to see the birds up close and get treats which the larger birds have yet to have any success to get too.

    Great pigeon feeder
    This product mentions Great Tits and Blue Tits and that was attractive to me as they are sweet little birds who make little or no mess. This feeder however, is frequented by pigeons, sometimes two at a time who are completely fearless. Most recently I was surprised to discover a massively fat Wood Pigeon sitting in it, throwing all the seeds onto the floor of my balcony. Lovely. The attraction of pigeons has led to the attraction of crows who try to eat the pigeons, really not what I had in mind. It will have to go.

    It took a week but now we have regular blue tits and the feeder has stood the test of time. Magpie's have now started to check out the box, so we will see if the box remains stable under their weight! We live in a flat and are high up and would recommend this, it has put a huge smile on our faces and loving the visitors.

    Successful
    I bought this for my mum who has very poor sight and can hardly see the birds on the garden feeders. It took about three weeks for the birds to find it, but since then it is frequently used by robins and blackbirds. It has only fallen off once, when two pigeons were on it. It supported them while they fed, but they both took flight at once and - boinggg crash! There has been a herring gull eyeing it up, but so far it hasn't worked out a way to take advantage.

    I got this as a gift for Christmas. We have large floor to ceiling windows in our flat and we're surrounded by trees so thought we'd buy one and see if we could tempt them to use the feeder and we could get a birds eye view of them. Weekend mornings now involve filling the feeder and sitting watching Robins, blue tits, great tits, coal tits and nuthatch. Great purchase.

    birds not interested
    We have had this on our window for 6 weeks now and never seen a bird come anywhere near it. We have tried different types of food, different positions on the house, different positions on the window ... nothing. Really disappointed. And advice would be much appreciated!

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review. As with any new bird feeder it can take some time for birds to pluck up the courage to use this. Birds are naturally nervous and hesitant of new feeders and feeding locations, but over time thy will adapt - as long as quality food is on offer.

    Very Good
    Bought this for our kitchen window, at first no birds came, but the first visitor to our surprise was a female blackcap! Since then we've had great tits, blackbirds and a regular (timid) one-eyed robin. Once 2 starlings came to it (one parent and one young one that had fledged that day). The baby sat on top of the feeder while the parent gave it food from the feeder tray. The parent flew away and left the baby looking in the house and tapping the glass (it had never seen glass before)! That was my most memorable experience with it. No problems with pests or design. It only fell off once in very strong winds.
    Thank you RSPB!!

    great for a short time
    I bought one of these years ago for my dad when he was terminally ill. He loved being able to watch the birds from his bed. I recently bought one for us, to enable my daughter to see birds a bit closer. I was amazed at how effectively it attracted all sorts of small birds. It gave us so much pleasure watching them up close. That lasted for about four weeks, until the jackdaws, magpies and starlings discovered it. They have ripped various parts of it off, throw the food all over the place and chase the smaller birds away. We have had hardly any tits in the last couple of weeks, and the robin has not returned at all.
    I know the bigger birds are hungry, too, but I simply cannot afford to keep up with their appetite and make sure there's enough for the little ones as well. Plus the noise against the window is too much. My daughter is very sad that we will have to discontinue the feeding.

    Great squirrel feeder!
    We bought this directly from a RSPB shop as we thought it a great idea - and being placed on our kitchen window we HOPED it would deter our squirrels. It took a couple of weeks before birds starting feeding - and we got a few which was a treat. Then our local neighbourhood squirrel (or squirrels) discovered we were providing them with free food. They clambered up onto our kitchen window, using the window frame - and then jumped across to the feeder. The result: no more birds. I guess squirrel smell put them off.

    So we moved the feeder to our patio door window and placed it higher. We didn't think the squirrel would be able to shimmy up the smooth glass and metal frame. Yes - it could. So we put it still higher - and further from the frame. This time the squirrel used the pebble-dash on the wall to climb up to the feeder height - and jumped. And missed. It tried again, and missed again. We thought we'd cracked it - and that soon the birds would return.

    Unfortunately the squirrel had other ideas - and could certainly teach lots of human beings about the merits of perseverance. It kept on trying - and we'd hear these scrabbling noises, and then see the squirrel sitting happily in the feeder noshing to its heart's content. We'd knock the window and it would look at us - with a curious look before jumping 3 foot to the wall and running off - until our back was turned and it was back again. We tried moving the feeder higher - to no avail. Sometimes the squirrel missed. But not enough. We did get a robin visiting in between squirrel feeds which was nice. However the squirrel persisted - until one day, we heard a crash. It wasn't Mr Squirrel! It was the Squirrel together with the feeder that was knocked down and sadly broke.

    So now we are looking for a bird feeder that says ""Squirrel proof"".

    This may work on upstairs windows or in locations without squirrels. But not where we live on the outskirts of London!

They are sturdy (you must attach them properly), attract so many different birds and the good thing is you can vary the food!

    OK but has design flaws
    Been using these now for over 10 years and probably on my 6th replacement. Basically the problem is always the same. The tray splits at both sides at the rear, mostly caused by larger birds (Blackbirds, Jay etc) as they take off, the lower tray acting like a springboard. Have also used a string on the whole unit in case the suckers harden off, which they do occasionally, to prevent it falling and breaking.
    I have once sat the whole unit on a block of wood under the tray, still with the back/suckers on the window - this stops the tray cracking as it gets rid of the springboard effect - BUT the tray gets dirtier than usual around and under where sitting on the wood block. I still recommend it however.

    Reflections a problem
    This works well enough to attract the small birds that visit our garden. Unfortuneately the Chaffinches spend most of the time attacking their own reflection in the window glass to which the feeder was attached. We therefore had to remove it. Even so one Chaffinch still returns to attack the window even though there are no longer any seeds to attract it

    Value for money and great fun.
    I bought one of these and loved it, but like others have found the feeder kept falling so attached string to hold it up when it fell. The green bars kept coming off so stopped using them ( blue tack idea sounds great). My only trouble was the squirrels who kept jumping on the for roof, this is what kept knocking it off the window, but the tray kept coming off until the clips broke. I have missed sitting and watching the birds up close and early in the morning, as it was one of the things I could comfortably do from my wheelchair. Even with the main feeding station in the front it was a little oasis of calm in the spare bedroom.
    Definatly thinking of getting another. There is room for improvement though.

    Good but room for improvement
    I read the reviews carefully and also had my other half telling me that the birds would never come up to our window as we're always in and out of the room (a kitchen diner). Eventually I gave in and bought one any way and I'm really glad I did. I followed all the instructions in the package about warming the suckers, cleaning the window etc and it's stuck brilliantly for the last month come rain, shine, snow or howling gales! I did put a cord on just in case and I also blu-tacked the green grips into place so they didn't slide off. So far we've got a healthy run of starlings, tits, blackbirds and our robin. The pigeons either aren't interested or find it too much effort as they stick with the garden feeders. We don't have gulls locally so I can't comment on their behaviour but generally it's only attracted the smaller birds. They do fly away if you're too close or move too much but they're getting bolder by the day. Much better than we expected and with the peck'n'mix in it we've had great success.
    If I were to re-design it I'd make the grips either fixed or removable by a clip for cleaning. I would also add a specific cord point and cord for people installing it above the ground floor as the land below isn't always theirs to go and collect it when it falls! Otherwise, really pleased.

    Badly designed
    I gave two of these to my girlfriend, and wish I hadn't as they have caused a lot of grief. They have fallen off constantly, even when the suckers are stuck on to the glass with strong waterproof glue. One of them is now broken. The green edge pieces slide about loosely just from birds landing on them. Worst, the flat roof allows gulls to perch on it, frightening away the small birds and making a mess. These feeders are designed without thought and are not fit for purpose.

    Almost too popular for its own good!
    I have been using this feeder for a couple of years now and so many of the local birds use it. Just this morning had a group of blue tit fledglings with a parent. Great to see this so close up! But... its also popular with big birds, such as jackdaws and parakeets and gradually the feeder always breaks in the same place. It starts cracking just below the ridges that attach the tray and progresses. However, right now its worth the expense of replacement as it brings so many birds so close.

    A lot of work - but good fun
    I didn't have any of the problems of the product mentioned. I followed the given advice including warming the suckers in hot water, fixing the green perch bar with glue and adding a supportive cord just in case it gets dislodged from the window.
    What I didn't expect were the birds to be so demanding and noisy. There is constant pecking on the perch bar in an attempt to break the seeds. The Blue tits are very demanding and prefers peanuts over sunflower seeds. It's a task to constantly keep the feeder full to avoid a bird rage.

    This isn't fool proof (as you can see from some of the other reviews) but if follow the advice on this page you'll have it securely attached and tethered to your window in no time. After that, it's a great way to see birds close up. You can literally sit or stand still right next to the feed and watch the birds come and pick some food up and fly away.

    The Birds love this feeder.A great gift and wonderful entertainment
    I wrote a review in the summer, but it does not appear here. I run a B&B and my guests are thrilled to watch the birds from such close quaters, and have gone on to purchase one from RSPB. I feed my birds all year. When I had my first window feeder I fixed it to a window which was open to the elements and it was used only occasionally, but when I moved it on to a sheltered window the birds started to eat from it. Now there is a feeding fenzy. Easy to clean too. The suckers need to be kept clean and stuck to a completely clean window and pushed hard until a slight popping sound is heard - removing trapped air. Squirrels are a problem here and have broken 2 of my feeders. I still use them by putting feed on the roof. I am buying more for my birds and as gifts. I now have 6 window feeders. One negative point - I would like the plastic to be a bit stronger especially on the brackets holding the feed tray as they do tend to crack.

    Porch of Pecking
    This feeder has proven very popular with my local bird population! There's a constant stream of Blue Tits visiting it every day, plus a squabbling mob of boisterous Greenfinches and many others. It's wonderful to be able to see them all so close up. The feeder may look a little on the cheap side at first, but it stays firmly attached to the window and is very easy to refill. The only downside is the mess on the window sill - that's more than compensated for by being able to see so many different sorts of birds from less than a metre away.

    Perfect purchase
    This is probably the best feeding item I have bought. It is easy to fill, easy to clean and very popular with the birds. I fill each morning with a mixture of mixed seed, peanuts, sunflower seed and mealworms. The feeder is most used by coal tits, who 'farm' the sunflower seeds, but is also visited by great tits, blue tits, house sparrows, starlings, magpies and even occasionally collared doves. The only downside is it can get quite messy on the windowsill. But it's worth it to see the birds feeding up close.

    disappointing
    I bought this a few months ago for my office window at work and the birds have absolutely loved it, and it provides a wonderful view. Unfortunately it repeatedly fell off until it was so broken I can't use it. I would often come in in the morning to find the seed tray part hanging off on one side and the seed tipped out-so it wasn't necessarily the suckers that were the problem more the design. I ended up with it tied together with string and glue until one final fall-from my ground floor window too. It needs a re-design and making from a tougher material.
