I love using my Cedar Works Scoop n’ Funnel for putting bird seed into my bird feeders. This device offers two methods of putting bird seed into a feeder. One method is to close the valve shut, dip the scoop into the bag of bird seed and then dump the contents into the bird feeder. Most feeders have a rather small opening at the top and his funnel bottom fits perfectly. I never use the scoop method but rather put my bird feeders on the ground and then put the small opening funnel into the top. I then carefully aim the bird seed bag contents into the funnel top opening. This funnel also has a slide valve to shut off the seed from flowing out of the funnel when you lift the funnel out of the bird feeder, a really nifty feature which gives this device TWO methods of filling your bird feeders, scoop and funnel. I seldom use the valve but every once and a while I overfill the funnel. You only need to close the valve and then move the funnel back to the bird seed bag to dump the extra seed back in the source bag.
I have no idea where I purchased this funnel. I have had it for years and love it.
October 2015, I decided to review this product and part of the review process was to check the Internet and see where I can be purchased. It is hard to find. The cost should be close to $5, well worth the cost.
