Duncraft constructed the platform feeder entirely in metal for durability in all weathers, while prohibiting chewing from squirrels or other mammals. To keep squirrels out of the birdseed, the platform uses two grids and mesh screen to provide beak access only. The feeder holds up to 1 pound of sunflower seeds in its tray. The overhead metal roof protects birdfeed from excessive rain exposure. Small holes in the feeder base allow ample drainage to further discourage mold and mildew from developing. To clean the feeder, users can take the platform apart without difficulty. Users should regularly clean the feeder with equal parts water and white vinegar to protect the birds from bacteria and disease and restock with fresh seed. For the best results, hang the bird feeder near trees and bushes rather than in the open where birds feel vulnerable to predators. To stand upright, the feeder fits on any 1-inch diameter post. The feeder does not come with birdseed. Duncraft offers limited five-year warranty for this item. The feeder tray measures 14-1/2 by 12 by 1-1/2 inches while the roof spans 16 by 13-3/4 inches. The 10-1/2-inch tall feeder weighs 6.3 pounds upon shipping. --Jessica Reuling
The only way birds get food is when a squirrel knocks some to the ground.
The birds on top of the grid can put their beaks through to get seeds from the bottom of the feeder but squirrels can't quite reach the bottom with their little arms.
I have a feeder that only allow small birds and -chipmunks- to feed in it.
I've designed a squirrel-proof setup using a pole and an old plastic litter pail. It keeps the feeder up higher so the squirrels can't jump up past the baffle...it works great. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Murphy S. Maclean
Everytime you want to refill it comes apart. The birds love it but my husband is aggravated whenever he cleans it out and refills it.Published 5 months ago by Jeanne McFarlane
I bought this to replace an older one that had been bought many years ago. After many New England winters the old feeder finally bit the dust. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Margaret D Jones
It's my own fault: I have too many trees in a small yard. So there is one gray squirrel who delights in flying onto this feeder and sitting quietly inside of it, until he gets... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Lisa R
I bought this feeder for the cardinals; they prefer platform feeders to perches. I would have given this feeder a 5-star rating IF the roof were closer to the platform. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Neschie Smith
The birds were not very interested in this feeder - the roof is too low and some of the bigger birds can't get in (like mourning doves and bluejays) which some people might like. Read morePublished 11 months ago by DZ

My wife loves this feeder.
There is not much to say as it is just a platform bird feeder, but it is well made, is of durable construction, and has that great roof on it... Read more
We wanted a covered tray feeder that was durable.. The birds came to it quickly. We are not using the grate, thought it might be harder to clean. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Ronda Hanke
