“I purchased my bird feeder some time ago when I lived in Florida. My yard there had a lot of squirrels but also had a lot of birds. All kinds of song birds, wood peckers, blue jays, etc. I enjoyed watching the birds at the feeder and really enjoyed watching the squirrels trying to figure out how to get the seed. They would climb the wooden pole, walk out on the long metal hanger and hang upside down on the bird feeder trying to get the seed. I've watched them go around and around the feeder trying to figure out how to get it. They could clearly see the food and smell the food but couldn't figure out how to get to it. One squirrel in particular was determined to get to that seed. It tried everything it could to get at it but of course it failed. I bet I watched that squirrel for a half an hour until it finally gave up, went down to the ground and ate the seeds that had fallen there from the feeder. I now live in South Carolina in a heavily wooded area. There are a LOT of red cardinals and they love the bird feeder. Yesterday I counted five little cardinals (I guess they're young cardinals but I'm not sure) eating from the feeder and a male cardinal sitting nearby on my fence. When the little birds flew back up to the trees the adult came to the feeder. I am really amazed at how many cardinals there are here. I've seen some other types of birds too but mostly cardinals. Love my bird feeder!!!”

“I bought the legacy feeder a few weeks back. The spring was not working properly for the tension. The reps from the company were so fast to get back to me in all possible ways viz phone, emails. And they sent me a whole new replacement spring mechanism within 2 days without asking. Now the feeder is working fine. Glad to know that some companies are still great at customer service and stand behind their products for real.”

“Decent job containing the little jerk for the past 8 months. The squirrel has now figured it out. He hangs by his feet and grabs the metal mesh cage around the food container and then shakes it until it gets unhooked then drops it to the ground. What a mess!”

Squirrel Buster Legacy
“Bought this a few days ago and was delighted to see the squirrel confusion that it created. However, after 48 hours the squirrels had found out that, if they reach down and hit the hanger, bird seed will spill out of the feeder on to the ground below. I am now reduced to the chili paste solution on the branch and the top of the feeder. I can't see that even adding the longer hanger will resolve this. Any thoughts? Thanks for any halp.

Love this birdfeeder!
“Problem fixed! No more squirrels or crows getting on the birdfeeder and dumping all the birdseed out.”
“Beautiful as well as a highly functional birdfeeder. I especially like the mesh on the outside which allows quite a few birds to hang onto the feeder while they wait for an open perch.... Or...they feed upside down. Super easy to fill and clean, this is really a great feature along with the adjustment of the spring. I am feeding only shelled sunflower in this feeder, and its important the seed remains dry. We just had a 2 inch rain day, and the seed is completely dry (of course the exposed bottom port its damp) but the reservoir is completely dry. I've also had cardinals use the feeder easily. Customer service is outstanding, its really cool to get someone on the phone instead of an answering machine or voicemail wasting your time. I am contemplating buying another Legacy, I also have the SquirrelBuster Plus, equally as impressive.”
