But, one design flaw (as mentioned by others) is the fact that the lid does not snap into place nor is it kept in place by anything other than its weight. I have not yet had squirrels lift it up. But it is a definite possibility. Squirrels have removed lids from my other feeders, and this one seems like it is only a matter of time. It would have been easy to design a snap-on lid, or to just have some small c-clamps or something similar to keep the lid from sliding up. I will probably buy a small c-clamp to keep the lid locked in place.
The squirrels can still jump onto the top of the lid and grab on with their hind legs while reaching/stretching down to the seed outlets. So, this feeder does not address that kind of behavior. The seed that can be stolen by squirrels this way seems to be a bit limited (one seed at a time), but it is do-able. When they leap off of the feeder, some seeds will fall out onto the ground. And, this is another means the squirrels have for obtaining seed. Squirrels are very smart, and they can defeat almost anything. In order to prevent them from hanging by their back legs and reaching down to the seed tray area, the feeder would have to be almost two feet high (to keep the seed out of reach). So, this is do-able, but I don't know of any feeders that have been designed like that.
On another note: I had a very bad experience with the first Myard ROCKET Double Sides feeder. I first ordered a "Used/Like New" unit, saving me about $5. Its description said "NEVER USED" (in capital letters, just like I wrote here). What I received, though, was a bird feeder that was covered with bird poop! There were also old seed remnants inside the feeder and loose in the shipping box. The unit was not assembled and did not come in the original box. I returned it, and bought the "new" one. Amazon gave me a $5 credit, and said they would investigate.
As far as the feeder itself goes, it's high quality. It's built pretty solidly with what appears to be strong metal. I don't know if it could survive a crash to the pavement, but under normal use it looks like it's going to be fine. I like the large capacity hopper because I have a lot of hungry birds around who can really rip through some food. I also like the two trays on either side. There's plenty of room for all the hungry birds!
It's *super easy* to fill, and to hang. I love it!
Of course, if it's not one thing, it's another. And while it does thwart the squirrels, guess who came to dinner? (See picture :-) ).
That said, our feeder hangs off our deck, so there is a railing there for this trashpanda to sit on... if you hang this away from a railing, even the raccoons won't be able to dine from it. :-)
I am returning this feeder because the sides are plastic and as you can see by the picture attached, the plastic broke when it fell. It hasn't been one full day in use and it cannot be used again.
