Opus Copper Triple Tube Bird Feeder
The Opus Top Flight Copper Triple Tube Bird Feeder features a generous 16 diameter squirrel guard for maximum protection against squirrels and weather. When hung properly, squirrels will be unable to reach your seed past this large copper colored plastic dome. The feeder has three separate feeder tubes that feature a combined capacity of over six quarts and twelve feeding ports. Six of the feeding ports have individual perches to accommodate smaller perching birds, while the other six feeding ports are perfectly placed above the copper colored plastic seed tray for larger birds. Attract a wide variety of birds by offering three different types of seed at once. The seed ports may also be altered to accommodate different types of seed. Use the open port for large seed, or close the port, allowing it to only dispense thistle seed. The clear acrylic feeder tubes keep the seed level visible and the plastic feeder dome unscrews quickly and easily for cleaning and filling. An integrated seed funnel makes filling the feeder tubes simple and mess-free. The 10 seed tray has a quick release mechanism that simplifies cleaning. The feeder is made of durable plastic and copper that will endure the elements season after season. The copper acquires a beautiful patina as it ages. This feeder may be hung or pole mounted using any pole with a 1 outside diameter. Lifetime Guarantee.

7 Years and Billions Feed!Apr 09, 2005
By Stephen H. Olsen
I bought this particular Opus feeder on Amazon, Seven Years ago. It is amazing that the feeder not only looks great but also still is operating like new. Opus Company is the most cooperative manufacturer and they stand behind all their products.
I called them when an aggressive squirrel ate through the squirrel guard in about six months, only because I had it put it up with too large of rope. Though it was my fault, they replaced the top and sent it out to my house immediately 100% free!
Over the years, I have had questions about birds and feeders and they are quick to answer them. They know the animals that eat out of their products! Opus makes more than Bird Feeders, they make many different garden products and Amazon is their top seller of those goods. That is who they always suggest you shop through Amazon because as they will tell you "Amazon.com has the absolute lowest price on all" these quality products.
I now own seven Opus Feeder and other Opus Garden Products; all are in new shape with heavy use in the adverse weather of Kansas! Yes Dorothy Kansas!
Let us not forget to shop for these at Amazon.com, but go to [...] and look over the entire line of their products and get the best advice on outside birding and other great information.

Needs improvementOct 09, 2005
"Ban fossil fuels"
These are fine if you're in an area with small birds, no squirrels, and.......no rain. The main problem is the bottom is held in place onto each of the 3 tubes ONLY by two tiny fragile "clips" on only about 2mm in size! As long as there is no weight on the bottom, you're fine. With large birds and huge doves, that gets to be a LOT of weight, many pounds on the bottom of the feeder which it cannot take over time. Yes, squirrels STILL do get on it which make it even worse (they are VERY smart, and even with sunflower seeds put out all over the place, they still INSIST on trying to get a few seeds out of the feeders!) :-)
The other issue which adds to this problem is rain. As soon as bird seed gets wet, it sprouts in a matter of hours and unless you clean the feeder out after EVERY rain, or humid night, the seed will indeed grow and grow on the bottom eventually forcing, "shoving" the bottom FROM the 3 tubes--again due to the undersized poorly designed clips.
This problem could SO EASILY be fixed by simply using either a larger retention/clipping mechanism on the bottom, or "studs" of some kind to which the tubes can connect THROUGH the bottom portion. But, for some reason the manufacturer refuses to do this.
Small birds, no squirrels or AWAY from squirrels, and little rain and low humidity; the feeders are fine.

Copper-colored plasticMar 27, 2005
By C. Wall
I was expecting this to be a copper bird feeder - I was hoping to match my copper bird bath. Note that this is copper-colored plastic - *not* copper. If you don't mind the plastic, it seems like a nice bird feeder, but I chose to send it back.

Great feeder, but watch the raccoonsMay 26, 2004
Yes, it's a great feeder-it provides a variety of feeds for a variety of birds. We have had an older non-copper (looking) model for two years in two homes and ,up until now, it was industrictible. Yes, we had to position it to keep off the squirrels but the feeder kept a lot of birds (and us) happy. Unfortunately, a group of raccoons recently discovered the feeder and my anti-squirrel measures have not worked. The worst part is that the heavy weight of a raccoon landing on the tray has caused it to break, spilling the entire contents of the feeder on the ground. They too were very happy. The bottom tray and the tabs that attach it to the tubes are plastic, like the rest of the feeder, and will break, given enough force. If you don't have any raccoons, this is still one of the best feeders that I have seen. In fact, I will order another one because I've since discovered a better way to keep the critters off.

Don't waste your money!May 12, 2007
There us very little copper on this "copper bird feeder". Don't kid yourself by thinking that the roof is made of copper, it is made of plastic. The only copper portions are the accents near the perches.
This is definitely NOT squirrel-proof. The squirrels were able to easily jump up and sit on the bottom of the feeder, and even chewed through the feed holes next to the perches. Once they did that, the feeder is useless as the feed just pours out of the side of the feeder.
If I could give it zero stars, I would. This definitely not worth the money. Keep looking for another feeder.
