Leto Smart Seed Feeder For Small Birds

Safe, clean and hassle free measuring



Black Leto Smart Seed Feeder For Small Birds

By Howard Drury


Product Features

Designed to stop larger birds and Squirrels getting at food
Depending on mix, can hold at least 1 kg of bird food
Aimed at birds weighing below 70 grams where the feeder port will remain open
Larger birds will close the feeding port
Unique push pin locking system for top and bottom sections


Initial Impressions

Delivered very quickly and securely packages, all environmentally friendly packing.
Lightweight compared with my much older cage type designed squirrel proof feeders.
Novel, but impressive push pin locking system for the top and bottom sections
Wide tube for food supply, will it be a problem on windy sites, was breezy today but not moving around.
Like the concept of each feeding station having its own segregated feeding port.
Tube feels similar in construction to my older feeders, which have not discoloured or been damaged. The unit overall feels robust.
With the angled cover above the feeding ports, this feeder should not allow water to ingress and contaminate the food supply, in my opinion something very important.


Initial conclusions

Good points - easy to access for filling and cleaning. Like the small holes to ensure any water does run out of the feeder.
Seems a lot less fiddly to refill than other squirrel proof bird feeders I am comparing with the Leto.
Bad Points - so far none, but the feeder was only put up yesterday


Further trials

I will update my observations when the birds have indicated their favourite source of food from which feeder and if the feeder is damaged by larger birds or squirrels. This may take several months to give the most fair and honest results.


Details and Availability

This feeder is available from  C J Wildbird Food as SKU 30023 in black, a similar model is available in silver, both are £34.99, which is very comparable with other squirrel proof bird feeder.
