Finally, one reviewer said that the unit started rusting. When I got this I said how can it rust, it is all plastic except for the hanger and some of the trim which is copper. However, after just one week outside the copper top of one of the feeders is starting to rust. Very disappointed with that but I will not return as I like all the other features. May have to spray paint the top with some Rustoleum if it gets too bad.
I decided to use both feeders for bird seed. They are practical; I like that on each side (top and bottom) of the feeder are interchangeable - there are different sized gaps so you can choose the right size for your seeding/ watering needs - we use sunflower seeds and they fit snugly and are distributed to the birds with no hiccups. I also like that the top and bottom bronze pieces can be screwed off of the feeding containers so you can easily fill or clean the feeder containers as needed.
What I do not like about these feeders is that the perch where birds perch upon to feast has become flimsy rather quickly and one of them is showing cracks/ breaks already; this is partly thanks to our neighborhood squirrels who love to invade all feeders in the neighborhood!
Enough about the squirrels - back to the feeders...the bronze hanger that supports the feeders is as shown; it is also lightweight yet sturdy, beautiful and can be used for other decorating needs if you choose to situate your feeders without utilizing the hanger. The only other con at the moment is that the top and bottom bronze parts of the feeders have rusted - in less than a month.
I hope that these feeders will last into Spring 2014. If they do I will consider this a good buy if it is durable enough to make it through 2 seasons, but if they continue to wear out or break down before seeing another season, its absolutely not a good buy for a one season "throw away" use.
So that is why I gave the Perky-Pet 737 Garden Sip & Seed Feeder 3 out of 5 stars...I don't hate the feeders (yet) but I am no longer in love with them like I was on the day I laid eyes on them after opening the box after their arrival. Let's just say they are OK - they get the job done by serving their intended purpose of holding and dispensing birdseed and are practical, as well as easy on the eyes (from a distance, after rusting out). That being said, you may love or hate these feeders, if you have squirrels that invade your feeders, you have been forewarned and you should probably expect the little bandits to cause your feeders to breakdown rather quickly!
