Yes, we do recommend Droll Yankees feeders as THE standard in wild birdfeeders. We were a dealer for Droll Yankees back in the year 2000 and Droll Yankees used to also sell direct retail. Now not only are we not a dealer but Droll Yankees no longer sells direct anymore except from an Amazon.com store. You can shop that store from this link and get most any of the products shown below, except, of course, the one we made ourselves back then.
We sold these until 2003
Wheezer used to hand make these feeders for sale. They are made of all cedar wood. There was a lot of mitering of joints and routing of edges involved as well as close fits for all the joints in the sides and the roof. It took a whole lot of time to build each one. And shipping was also a pain because of the size of it. We've lost track of what our price was but it was around $150.
This feeder is a classic from Droll Yankees

The YANKEE FLIPPER is the definitive squirrel proof bird feeder. Birds love to eat from it, but squirrels are prevented from eating from it in a way that will make you smile. The weight activated feeding perch is calibrated to react to a squirrel's weight. When a squirrel steps on the perch, a connection is made with a motor that makes the perch spin, and the squirrel is flipped off the feeder. Thus, the name Yankee Flipper. The unit comes equipped with rechargeable nicad batteries and a battery recharger. Would you expect anything less of Droll Yankees? 21" long, 4 ports, 4 qt. capacity. YF

Bring in more birds -- provide a water source
Birds do need water. A static water source will provide drinking water and some birds will actually bathe in water about 1/2" deep. See our bluebird page
where we caught a bluebird bathing in a static water source. An even better water source is one that provides flowing water, the sound of which seems to attract birds also. A yard fountain with pump adds beauty and sound for your listening and viewing pleasure as well as that of the birds.
