Hopper for Sky Cafe Bird Feeder
This 1 1/2 gallon Sky Cafe Hopper is specially designed to fit the Sky Cafe Bird Feeders. It has no need for seed ports. As of 2015, we have updated our hopper material to a much more resilient & durable polycarbonate. This new material has high impact-resistance and is now much stronger and resistant from cracks as breakage. Available on Sky Cafe Bird Feeders (AR360/AR362) only.
Watch the 2015 Drop Test video below. Bounces on concrete!
If your SkyCafe Bird Feeder doesn't have ports, and feeds birds through a tray at the base of the bird feeder, then this is the correct replacment part for your SkyCafe Bird Feeder (AR360/AR362). (If your bird feeder has 4 ports & perches, then your bird feeder is a Mandarin bird feeder (AR150/AR152), not the Sky Cafe. Please go HERE for your correct part.)
As of 2015, we have updated our material to a much more bouncy & durable polycarbonate. This new material has high impact-resistance and is now much stronger and resistant to cracks and breakage. The Sky Cafe Bird Feeder is now the most durable bird feeder on the market. Watch the results as we toss the tray and hopper on the pavement.

Best squirrel proof feeder ever!
Posted by Dorothy J Macomber on 21st Nov 2017
I have used this type of feeder for years now. As long as you hang it high enough above the ground so the squirrels can't jump up, they just can't get into the seed. They slide right off the roof of the feeder. (The only problem happens if the snow gets too high; then the squirrels can jump up!)
Over the course of a number of years, the stress of the weight of the considerable amount of seed that this feeder holds does take its toll on the holes up near the top of the hopper and cracks start to develop; this is, however, after a number of years. This is why I am buying a replacement, so I'll be ready in case the cracks go all the way through- probably the best insurance that I will not need this replacement part! Anyway, best feeder ever!
Replaced a 15 year old broken part

Perfect fit to replace a base broken by repeated falls to the ground over about 15 years of use. Still had the conical top from old feeder and they matched exactly. Also purchased the tray. Fabricated the wire hanger from a coat hanger and back in bird feeding business for $33.

I have four Sky Cafes. They really are "squirrel proof". MY only complaint in the past was the hopper cracking at the holes for the wire from the weight of the seed. Consequently I wrap the top of the hopper with duct tape to "reinforce" it. I have also stopped putting as much seed in at one time so the weight is less. The improvements you describe above were much needed. I still have three hoppers of the old material. so we'll see how this new one holds up.

My hoppers arrived quickly and in perfect condition. It is wonderful to have a place to buy replacement parts which are reasonable and fit perfectly. Thank you.

Excellent bird feeder! Just replaced the base after 15 years. Love that it can hold so much seed and squirrels can not get to it! New base is made of improved plastic. Thank you

I love this bird feeder and am so glad to have found a site where I can buy replacement parts.
V- shaped wire inside the hopper
Posted by Heidi on 12th Nov 2015
The wire needs to be thicker and stronger so it does not bend and come out of the hopper in windy weather or when moving it around because... 10 lbs. of seed is heavy. I have had to replace the hopper and tray twice now because it fell apart due to the thin wire and hit the ground. Can you send me a... free? stronger wire if you have it now? Thanks!!!, as I love this feeder... I have fed birds for 22 yrs now, feeder is 11' off the ground from a 50' wire between the house and a tree, safe from bears, it's the Cardinal's favorite, and this is just the best feeder ever!! Thank you so much :)
