Garden Song 480 Classic Bird Feeder

Enjoy the peace and tranquility birds can bring to your yard with help from this Garden Song Classic Bird Feeder. One of the most economical and easy-to-use bird feeders on the market, this long, skinny, tube-style bird feeder offers a classic shape designed to attract finches and a wide variety of other wild birds. From chickadees, cardinals, house finches, and bright yellow Goldfinches to blue jays, starlings, warblers, and more, the feeder lures wild birds into your yard so you can watch them for hours from your window or simply listen to them trill and chirp away while you lounge peacefully on your porch or patio.

Economical tube-style feeder for finches and other wild birds.

Welcoming 6-Port Feeding Station

This Garden Song classic bird feeder serves as a welcoming feeding station for birds. It provides six feeding ports staggered around the lower half of its long, skinny, tubular frame. Each feeding port provides a unique T-shaped perch that offers stability and comfort, encouraging birds to sit and dine for as long as they like. Made of durable plastic, the bird feeder features a transparent reservoir that allows for monitoring seed levels at a glance. The top, bottom, and each feeding port and perch come in a lovely forest green color that works as an eye-catching accent, nicely accommodating surrounding decor and natural landscaping.

Easy to Fill and Clean

When it's time to fill the feeder, simply unscrew the reservoir from the base and tip the unit upside down. Pour in up to 1.75 pounds of seed, screw the base back on, flip it over, and it's ready to go. The bird feeder can be filled with a variety of seed, including black oil sunflower seed, safflower seed, and mixed seed. Be sure to keep this classic bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure happy, healthy birds and many return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it at least twice a week with a mild soap and water solution, more often in very warm climates or seasons.

Suggested Placement

After filling this classic bird feeder with seed, use the plastic loop hanger to hang the feeder near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.

6 feeding ports with comfortable T-shaped perches.

I like to switch off my feeders at least once a week to do a thorough cleaning, and so I have a lot of extra feeders. This feeder is plastic and the bases, perches, and top are green.
While this is not the most solid feeder I've encountered, the price is right for my purposes. There are tons of really pretty, ornamental feeders on the market, but they cost more and I worry about breaking them. This one gets the job done, and is in a price range that I don't have to worry about breaking it when I dismantle it for a more thorough cleaning. No one is going to mistake the feeder for a family heirloom and so you can be a little rough with it if need be, because seed almost always slips into the nooks and crannies of most feeders.

I can't give it a higher rating, but will recommend it to people who have a similar routine to mine and want something that gets the job done, but that you can handle in a very practical manner. I say get the feeder that is most practical and let the birds bring the beauty.

I have this feeder placed right outside my window of my ground floor apartment. I originally got it for the cats' entertainment, and am glad I did.

I originally had a feeder bell hanging from the second floor apartment's balcony, but decided it wasn't enough.

I purchased this feeder for the sparrows and used the cheapest bird feed available. After I switched to sunflower seeds only I am now getting sparrows, finches and starlings. The down side being that the perches were not designed for starlings so they have to reach around to one of the other holes to get their food.

Anymore, I can get 5 or so on it at once with two or three hanging out on the chain it hangs from waiting in line.

I really love this little feeder and have had it since December '08. Never once had a problem with squirrels, but it may be because of the way I have it set up.

I don't recommend this feeder if you have squirrels nearby. In three week's time, squirrels gnawed the plastic perches off, chewed the plastic ports until feed poured out, and destroyed the plastic bottom cap, completely emptying the feeder's contents onto the ground. This is an inexpensive feeder that is not unattractive, but squirrel-proof it definitely is not.

Squirrels can be very persistent and determined when trying to access seed in a feeder. If squirrels are gaining access to the seed, additional measures may need to be taken to keep these clever critters at bay.

Since squirrels are expert jumpers, it is recommended to keep a feeder 5-6 feet off the ground and at least 10-20 feet from launching points such as roofs, trees and other perches. You may also want to consider using a squirrel baffle positioned above or below the feeder to prevent them from climbing a pole or jumping on to the top of the feeder.

We truly appreciate your feedback regarding this feeder. All of our feeders are covered under a one year warranty and we would encourage you to contact our Consumer Relations Specialists at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) so we may better assist you.

It's sturdy, it's inexpensive, and the smaller birds can poke their beaks right to the bottom of the feeder to get all of the seeds. (The last vertical feeder we had always had leftovers at the bottom that the birds couldn't reach.) And the price is decent. A nice addition to the back yard.

I picked this feeder because I wasn't sure any birds would find my feeder, and I don't have a ton of disposable income.

I'm happy to say that a squirrel family has adopted the feeder as its own personal buffet. It's my fault, I hung it too close to the house, but it's all I've got, really. So I watch the squirrels, who eat a LOT of food. But! Today I saw actual birds happily chirping and snacking at it!

The feeder is plastic, so I imagine it'll scratch/fade/oxidize over time. Seed spills out the holes at the perches when I'm filling it, which is a drag. But that's me being picky. For the price, it's a terrific feeder!

This is a good feeder for its price. In about three months I have only had two issues with it: (1) Once it got jammed up with feed/crap so hard that I had to completely take it apart to clear the mess. (2) The feeder is not squirrel resistant and one chewed into the plastic (see photo if I can upload it).

I have been using this bird feeder for a few seasons now, and it has held up so well. It's obvious in the picture that it's quite faded, but is still solid in construction. I was surprised that it has lasted this long, because of the low price. I purchased a couple more, so that I can add more feeding stations in the spring. It's a good feeder for mixed seed, millet, sunflower seed, and safflower seed. I've used just about everything except for thistle, which would not work well in this feeder. It attracts a variety of birds, depending on the seed that you choose to use. My squirrels do not favor safflower, so I use that a lot. There is nothing fancy about this feeder, and is clearly all plastic, so if you're looking for an upscale gift for someone... this isn't it. It's a great everyday feeder and does what it's intended to do... feed the birds! I love it!
