2) The plastic is "recycled" Plexiglas. I'm all for recycling, but here this product will be exposed to years of ultraviolet light; recycled plastic will not be as degradation-resistant as virgin plastic unless they add back the UV stabilizers to the polymer mix (which I doubt). My last one, several years old, cracked spontaneously one day and shattered when it fell on the patio, apparently due to degradation of the plastic.
3) You can buy spare parts at very fair prices from the manufacturer, so consider buying just the replacement parts you need. (I forgot, and bought a whole new one).
4) The one with "dividers" is best: Arundale 152 Mandarin Wild Bird Feeder with Seed Dividers. The model with a tray at the bottom may be less squirrel-proof depending on your installation.
Now.. If someone could share a secret on how to prevent/ get rid of bird dropping?, I would be all set. :)
I chose a primo location for the birds in my yard, hanging it from a cherry tree with easy access from tall lilac bushes nearby, where the birds love to hang out ~ during the first month of having it there, I noticed that condensation formed inside the dome, which I assumed was from rainy weather ~ but even after weeks of it hanging in the yard, the birds did not seem to enjoy the feeder as much as other feeders nearby ~ I also noticed that the mix of sunflower seeds did not move down into the ports for the birds to get to, so I changed the mix to smaller seed ~ still, the ports were not filling up, supplying enough seeds for the birds to get to ~ to make the feeder `more interesting` I stopped filling the other feeders, but still didn't have near the amount of birds coming to it ~ when I took the seeds out to place them into another feeder, I noticed that the center of the feeder had moldy seed!!! ~ probably caused by all the condensation or water getting into the dome ~ long story short: I got so disgusted with spending the money on this feeder, I threw it away!!!
assembly was easy with good instructions
the perches were cheesy and not long or firm enough for larger birds to come to
you had to dig into the sides of the ports to make the seeds come down
About six years ago, I had the model that has a tray on the bottom.
Big mistake! The birds would just sit on the tray and throw out the seed.
This design won't let that happen. It only has perches. Squirrels are not a problem for me with this feeder.
