This eye-catching ensemble of rounded metal roof and bowl, bird and hanging crescent moon is handcrafted by artisans in Bali of welded sheet metal painted in a rich palette of autumnal hues that naturally weather over time into a lustrous patina. Includes hanger. Handmade in Bali.

      Comments about SPIKY OWL BIRD FEEDER:

      This was my first purchase from Uncommon Goods. I thought my husband would enjoy this unique bird feeder and based on the price, I expected a quality product. When he pulled it out of the box I was embarrassed at the quality. It looked and felt like a garage sale item. Then he put it together, only to find that the very flimsy chain was broken. It's going back. Overpriced and flimsy product. Don't buy it.

            I gave this bird feeder to my niece. She liked it! When we set it up, I noticed that the top and bottom didnt quite match up; they were off set...not sure if it was supposed to be like that, but it's for feeding birds...not too worried about it!

                I bought this for my boss who really likes owls and who has a beautiful garden at his home that he can show it off in. I had no idea what to get him for Christmas and I'm glad I came across this. He really liked it and can't wait to put it up in the spring. The colors are very pretty and it's a unique piece.

                I had been looking for a unique, interesting feeder. I am an artist, and I love the unusual. :)
                So after zillions of other feeders I looked at, I came across this site by accident, and walla! The PERFECT UNIQUE FEEDER!!! I love that it is durable, that there are holes in the bottom to drain rain and snow. There is only one defect I can see. It sure isn't squirrel-proof! So if you are looking for a feeder that is, this isn't it...except...I have a full-proof thingy on my pole that DOES keep squirrels away, so I wasn't worried about getting this. :)
                It is simply adorable. I love also that it is colorful in the back too! I was thinking of possibly putting peanut butter in the protrusions on the back of the owl for winter. It also holds quite a bit of sunflower seed--I don't have to refill everyday like some feeders.
                Oh...and did I tell you it was ADORABLE? lol

                          Our eyes got wide when we caught a glimpse of this colorful handmade owl. Not only is it a great sculptural garden piece, it's also a functional bird feeder! What do you love most about the latest addition to the spiky owl family?

                          I love the colors and I would go for this, myself. I am concerned, however, that the owl would keep birds away. Owls are placed on buildings to keep pigeons from dumping. This implies that birds react to the shape of an owl and not smell or some other factor.

                          It is definately cute, and I wouldn't actually mind having it except I would also be worried about scaring away the birds.

                          With regard to the owl scaring away birds, for one the size is much smaller than those replicas used to keep birds away. Also, the coloring and shape of this owl would not have the same effect on birds visiting this feeder. This is adorable, and a really great functional art piece for the yard.

                          It says right there that it's "spiky". Do you really want spiky around a bird? I don't want to hurt anything.

                          I love owls and would buy this (depending on price which is not shown). I agree with others though - this could scare away birds.

                          This would be decorative only, birds don't like these and seeds get wet even tho it's covered

                          Too much going on in the feeder itself. Not enough room for the feed. Will be filling it every day.

                          I thought it would scare birds away too.

                          I like this bird feeder because it is different and I like the style of it.

                          Aren't owls supposed to scare other birds away?

                          Cute, but owls are natural enemies of songbirds.

                          I think it's really cute, but I don't think my birds will like it. It's awkward to get to the seed, and the owl eyes may be scary.

                          Too cute! And owls are so popular right now.

                          Love this. Keeps rain out...at least from the top. Practical and fun.

                          I like unique but classy-looking items. This item doesn't fit me, but it may appeal to those looking for a novelty or those who collect/like owls.

                          impossible to clean, probably difficult to fill, and hardly squirrel-proof,

                          Birds are afraid of owls. I don't think you'd get many coming to the feeder.

                          My bird friends up here in the mountains would love to use this feeder. The top would keep the rain out.

                          Very cute, probably not that functional, as the squirrels will love it as much if not more than birds, but nice

                          I would hang this In my house because I think it's wicked cool. For that, I gave it a thumbs-up.As a birdfeeder, a thumbs-down because I share the concerns of other voters about it scaring off the birds and it seems like it would have sharp metal edges that we wouldn't want to injure the birds.You should carry it anyway but as an art piece!

                          Fun match with similar owl sculptures, but would the big eyes scare birds away?
