Remove the three Philips-head screws beneath the bottom platform that hold the bottom platform to the tube and then the (Colibri) feeder looks like its picture, and larger birds that could perch on it can no longer feed from it. With the bottom platform removed, the only birds I noticed on the feeder today were goldfinches, and they ate from it voraciously throughout the day. There may be other small birds that will come to it and manage to feed from it, but the goldfinches I had rarely spotted before on the feeder were abundant today.

This is a very attractive feeder and if only goldfinches could use it I'd be be very happy with the item. Unfortunately, house finches (who have their own feeder) seem to prefer the thistle seed and are quite capable of standing on a perch and stretching up to the the feeder hole above it. Each finch that does this essentially takes away TWO feeding stations from the goldfinches - the hole above the perch and the one below - so two house finches take up four stations, leaving only two available for the smaller and more timid goldfinches. And yes, there is a small platform under the feeder, just big enough for an ambitious house finch to brace against while it holds on to the metal frame above. This feeder empties out in just one day ....... and the goldfinches get very little of it.

Although I was surprised to see that birds, other than finches, can stand on the bottom platform and feed, this bird feeder still has several other ports where only the yellow finch can feed. The snowbirds seemed to be the ones standing and getting the food on the bottom, so I didn't mind it at all, since they are welcome winter visitors. The bottom holes were made bigger,though, by some non finch birds who pecked at it, and I had to put a bit of duct tape over the bottom holes. BUT! This bird feeder is the most handsome finch feeder out there. In addition, it has a canopy to keep out really wet weather, which can be a problem with small niger seeds. Most niger feeders do not have this canopy, and when the seeds get wet, they clump together and get moldy. All in all, I enjoy looking out at my yard and seeing this feeder filled with finches!

Pros: Metal construction, wide top that keeps seed dry, sturdier by far than the cheap plastic cylinders, which deteriorate very quickly.

Con: Separation of the feed ports is insufficient - house finches can stand on the lower perch and stretch to reach the upper port. Needs only another inch spacing at each level. I put duct tape over the upper ports but this decreases feeding capacity by one third.

As others have noted, the feeder comes with a wide base that non-goldfinch species can perch on and stuff their beaks. Easy to remove by unscrewing the machine screws that hold it on. Not clear why the maker bothered with this addition.

Unless your house finches are really stupid, some of them will figure out how to copy the goldfinches or will cling to the edge of the metal trim. No perfect solutions!

Squirrels have no interest in niger, but the mixes that include other seeds will attract squirrels and they will do their best to destroy the feeder.

Generally, a decent value for the money.

Goldfinches love this attractive feeder. I wanted to replace the flimsier, flexible, yellow-capped $10-$13 upside-down feeders that break too easily, spill seed if you hold the feeder too tightly after refilling, and let in rain through the seed holes. As some reviewers have said, the drawback to the new feeder is that other birds can get to the thistle by reaching up to a hole; it's hard to believe that the feeder designer didn't anticipate this. Didn't anyone test the feeder before production? Simply adding half an inch or so between perch levels would have solved the problem.
On the plus side, the roof helps keep the seed dry, and the base, which would have been more useful if larger and concave (it is small and flat), catches some of the spilled seed, and the goldfinches eat it there. I didn't remove the base, as other reviewers have done, because this feeder's only pests -- house finches and sparrows -- can still sit on a perch and reach a hole above, so I left the base on to catch some seed.
The good news is that house finches and sparrows prefer black-oil sunflower to thistle. As long as my sunflower feeders are not close to this feeder (mine are about 15 feet away) and have ample seed in them, the house finches and sparrows invariably go for the sunflower and ignore the thistle feeder, where they have to work a little harder anyway to reach up and take seed. And the goldfinches DO catch on to the upside-down thing right away; they often eat upside-down on garden plants, so they have no problem with an upside-down feeder.

If you love watching 12-20 busy finches on a nyger sock or mesh tube feeder, this feeder is NOT for you. Only a few finches can feed at once & they greatly prefer the other types of feeders. I had to hang a nyger sock next to this one and a macrame plant holder around it for perching to coax them to use this one even though they readily feed upside down (and rightside up) on the sock/mesh feeders. However, it will be a real asset in wet weather because the limited holes and the canopy will protect the seeds. For this reason I give it 4 stars & am happy with the purchase. Perhaps this feeder is more useful to keep out other birds in the Eastern parts of the country where it got rave reviews. I have dozens of yellow finches come to my feeders and no other birds. I hang black sunflower seed tubes right next to them for the purple finches and a few others but there's no cross feeding. Ground eating birds come to clean up the dropped seed. Perhaps a matter of geography and slightly different bird species.
