Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. What is the importance of providing water for wild birds?

A. Wild birds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need seed. Birds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also for bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide birds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for birds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy. By adding a water source, you also can attract a larger variety of birds to your yard. You may even attract more colorful birds that don't eat seed, but are in need of water!

Q. What are the most popular bird seeds to use?

A. Black Oil Sunflower Seed is the most popular bird seed. It is much smaller than the traditional sunflower seed and best for those birds with smaller bills, such as the sparrow, junco and goldfinch. This seed is accepted by the greatest variety of birds.

Mixed Seed is also popular. It is best to buy the mixes that contain white proso millet, a tiny cream colored seed with a shiny shell. Mixes containing finely cracked corn and black oil sunflower are also preferred by a large number of birds.

Nyjer (Thistle Seed) is imported from Africa and Asia. Nyjer won't germinate, however, it has a tendency to become moldy due to lack of air circulation. If you notice mold on the seed, it must be removed from the feeder and the feeder must be cleaned thoroughly.

Q. How do I clean my bird feeders?

A. Before filling your feeder with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:

  1. Remove all old seed.
  2. Soak feeder in a light water/bleach solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach).
  3. Scrub feeder and allow to air dry.
  4. Rake and remove accumulated hulls and droppings from underneath the feeders.
  5. Spread mulch (bark or wood) under the feeder, replace mulch when soiled.
  6. Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.

If not, this will not work for you, sadly.

Refilling will be a chore, as any seed remaining in the base will have to be emptied, lest it be tossed all over when turning the jar over to fill it.

Perfect match for the Perky-Pet Hummingbird feeder.

The top does not come off. A design with a separate top would have made far more sense.
Here's how it works: The jar is filled, the base is screwed on (upside down) then the entire thing is righted (spilling seed in the process). The base has a rather large capacity, meaning as soon as you fill it and right it, the jar is 1/2 empty. It also means that any precipitation will ruin a large amount of seed when the base fills with water, instead of protecting most of the seed in the jar (the base has very small drain holes, which I will enlarge if I keep them). Refilling will be a chore, as any seed remaining in the base will have to be emptied, lest it be tossed all over when turning the jar over to fill it. I plan to do this inside of a bucket to limit waste.

If I don't send them both back first.

Followup:
I have reduced my rating to 1 star. As expected, the first time it rained I ended up with a lot of clumped seed in the base, which had to be scooped out. Instead I simply washed them both out and put them back in their box. Definite Kudos to Amazon for their most excellent return policy!

Before this, I had made an effort to find a way to use these. And I discovered another flaw in the process: In order to refill these feeders, you need a spare bucket to dump the remaining seed into - otherwise you either remove the glass, leaving the spare seed in the base (meaning you cannot turn the base over to put it back on without spilling all that seed), or you turn the whole thing over, spilling the seed right up front, instead of waiting until the end... Less than ideal, to say the very least.

Perfect match for the Perky-Pet Hummingbird feeder. Works for a variety size of birds. Cardinals, Finches,Sparrows and Jays all like this guy. The seed holes are nice and big, so I can mix in a good variety of seed.The 360 degree glass view attracts so many more bids than the previous cedar feeder it replaced. So much so, I'm going to have to buy seed more regularly than before, maybe two or three times as often. The mason jar concept that gives it the aesthetic appeal is also the reason 4 stars and not 5. It is nice to look at, but nearly impossible (without making a mess) to fill this sucker all the way up. You fill it while it's lying on the jar "bottom" and then screw the top on the jar "mouth". When you flip it back over about 1/4 of the seed seeps into the feeding reservoir. Not s big deal, and overall a great purchase that pleases me and apparently every bird in the greenbelt behind my deck.

I like the look of this product but didn't consider the capacity. It doesn't hold alot of bird seed so have to refill very often. Fortunately it is easy to refill.

I threw it across the yard, breaking it into many pieces. You spill more feed trying to fill this thing than the birds will ever eat. I have used this type of base to feed many baby chicks, I fill the bottom first then the top and quickly screw them together. This does not work with bird feed, the seeds are too large and jam up the threads. So unless you want a feeder that looks empty all the time I would not buy this.

BTW I realize that I was a bit irrational, throwing the glass jar (no refund for me). But it felt good.

the design is adorable and it's easy to fill and hang - BUT BUT BUT it is an absolute squirrel magnet and you can plan on refilling it three times a day. I hang it in the tree and literally one hour later it is either empty, or hanging all askew because the weight of the aggressive squirrels has thrown it sideways, or it's on the ground altogether because they've knocked it off the hook. If you live in a place with no squirrels this is perfect. If not, this will not work for you, sadly.

Love this bird feeder! Looks gorgeous and classy. Very unique. Wish it was a little bigger - maybe the next size up mason jar but it's not a huge issue. Would def order again

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mom. I'll update it once it's actually in use. Shipping took what felt like ages - but it arrived exactly as shown. I bought the matching hummingbird feeder to go with it - they make a really cute set.
