Very pleased. Had one of those with the mesh screen and the rain would soak and mold the seeds. This one protects against that and the yellow pieces are metal. Nice weight and construction for my finches and a much better size than those very long ones.
For almost thirty years I fed birds at my week-end bungalow. I had four or five feeders, including a thistle sock and a cheap up-side down, proper goldfinch feeder. I supported many new broods over the years, as they will lay more eggs if the food supply is adequate. I did my best to keep up with all of them. Cardinals, Titmice, also, noticeably more fledglings when you keep the sunflower seeds coming.
Right now as I write this a juvenile downy woodpecker feeds on suet three feet above my computer.
This feeder has four stations that are more suited for normal perching birds. For one year I watched as no bird came near this feeder, which was on a post with two other feeders, millet/corn and black-oil sunflower, and a water tray. This Spring I moved it to the opposite side of the yard, on it's own post. The sparrows and house finches found it and started feeding. Finally I saw a few goldfinches, but the other birds bullied them away. They bully each other also, but they give as well as take. The goldfinches are tiny, the larger birds don't even flinch. It's about mass.
I decided to go to my shed and take out my old, cheapy plastic tube feeder of yore, with six upside down stations. I put the droll Yankee in my garage, and set up the old one. In one day everyone discovered it. Other than the goldfinches, the other birds were completely unable to access the seed. Smart guy that I am, I was thoroughly amused. ("I stumped a bird!!!") It took a couple of goldfinches five or six attempts before they figured it out. I watched as one female tried and fail. Then she left and a half-minute later a male came and made a few tries. I can't remember which one finally figured it out, but that one left and the other one showed up and was successful. That one left and six goldfinches flew in a minute later, all taking a station. I've gone through twelve pounds of thistle this summer. The sparrows and house finches feed on the ground below on the dropped thistle. Peaceful Kingdom, at last.
Conclusions / Speculations: The goldfinches are shy, and did not approach the pandemonium of my multi-feeder post. The others avoided the thistle feeder when there was other more preferred seed available, and easier to access. Once I moved the Droll Yankee the less aggressive and young, inexperienced sparrows and house finches decided to give it a try. The slowest of the lot of them, I finally figured it out. It's clear the Goldfinches communicate with each other, as they have scouts who go back, report, and give suggestions. They pool their knowledge and help each other. As we humans often don't.
I communicated my issues and sent photos to the company. They politely responded, innocuously. Anybody need a used feeder? Nicely built, will last several lifetimes not as described or intended.
