When I saw how inexpensive this was and the simplicity of the design I thought it likely would not work well for long. Or that it would be an easy game for squirrel to get into or even damage. I have been very pleasantly surprised. It has fed many a sparrow and blue jays, chickadees, some I believe finches and our local parrot population enjoys it as well. I have mine hanging from a low hanging sturdy branch. This was meant to be temporary as I planned to get a large Sheppard's hook or other pole. But this has worked very well and the birds seem to like hanging off the branch to get to it. We did have a few squirrels check it out, but they prefer the sunflower seeds and corn ears on the flat feeder, so leave this for the small birds. I was surprised after some nosing about it they seemed to loose interest, I totally expected that the first few days they would destroy it. The only issue I have it that the plastic clip that holds it shut, broke the 3rd time I replaced the suet block. I was anticipating this might happen, the sun here is awful on plastic. But with a bit of sturdy wire and a pair of pliers I made a suitable hook to keep it closed from metal. Thus solving the issue. This is the clip that connects the door to the top that holds the suet block inside the holder. Despite this one small flaw I still totally recomend this. At the price it works very well. This is well worth the purchase price. One could simply twist tie the top closed or possibly use a small hook and eye type clasp. For the small repair and small price it has kept myself and my grand children busy identifying our feathered visitors.
