Even in the rainy, salty North Oregon coast, after 2 years this feeder is NOT rusting!! Not bad; not bad at all. And I like the very easy twist off top to add more fodder for the feathered.
The only suggested I'd make, and this is only because I suck at maintaining things, is the bottom dish is closed and seeds and bird droppings congeal into a hard-to-clean mass. An open wire mesh on the bottom would minimize this but then, I realize, some seed would fall to the ground. I'd rather have less maintenance. Besides, the larger birds can peck the lost seed below.
