As their wild habitats give way to urban development, more and more birds live in residential landscapes. Increasingly, ornithologists are turning to backyard birders for critical data about their avian neighbors. And the easiest way for citizen scientists to observe birds is to feed them.
Designed with help from the British Trust for Ornithology, the epoxy-coated steel frame of this modern feeder lets birds in while helping keep squirrels and other predators out. The polycarbonate feeding tube holds approximately 14 oz. of seeds or nuts. The weather-resistant steel construction makes it suitable for year-round use. A lockable lid and chaff catcher help to keep the seed mess to a minimum.
Made from powder-coated steel and polycarbonate tubing. Approximately 10 1/2"W x 9 1/2"H. 3 lbs.
Nice feeder - well constructed, quality finish and pleasing design.
Contrary to an earlier review squirrels sometimes hang on ours and try to shake out some seeds left by birds in the bottom tray but they cannot pass through the spiral cage. Perhaps the first review was dealing with chipmunks which are smaller but do not reside in our area.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I bought it product to feed the birds not the squirrels but the squirrels just went inside the feeder and enjoyed the food. I couldn't believe my eyes so I took a photo. I took the feeder down and still trying to find a bird feeder that squirrel cannot get in the cage or remove the top off. I feel that this was an expensive purchase and didn't work.
