Blue, Great & Coal Tits like it but not other Birds
on 20 June 2013
When this arrived I thought it was a good product. Having filled it with nuts, (& it takes a lot as it is large) my husband hung it up for me where we previously had an 'ordinary' plastic feeder. The birds do not like it. I know they take a while to get used to things but the pair of Jays which used to feed regularly 3 times a day won't go near it & many of the little birds avoid it. A pair of squirrels which used to come regularly have avoided us too. Whether it is because the cover is very shiny or they don't like the shape, who knows!! I will be leaving it up for a while longer and will report back after a month.
Decided to report back after a week. Squirrel cannot get on it, Jay doesn't like it neither do the Bullfinches but the Great Spotted Woodpeckers & all the Tits love it so it was worth getting it just for them. It has taken a week for half of the peanuts to be eaten & that was a lot so I will say it was a good investment after all.
