    Comments about Yellow Bird Rain Gauge:

    Since we live in S.W. Pennsylvania, we're snow covered so haven't placed the rain gauge outside yet. It is nice, well made and we are really going to be happy to know how much rain we actually get...not the Pittsburgh Airport's measurements, but our own yard's!

      Comments about Yellow Bird Rain Gauge:

      The little yellow bird sits just above the flowers in my garden and it is such a delight to see it sitting among my flowers. I haven't checked it out since the rain, but it sure looks good. It is a fun, lively and attractive addition to the garden landscape.

      Comments about Yellow Bird Rain Gauge:

      I ordered this little cutie for the garden for my husband's birthday. That was less than a month ago. The glass receptacle broke in severe weather. Who would make an outside ornament without tempered glass? I am really disappointed.

                  Its mostly ornamental in use but fantastic in the flower garden. Hope the yellow paint on the birdy lasts a few years... time will tell.

                  Comments about Yellow Bird Rain Gauge:

                  It looks good from the house, but I will have to repaint the bird with acrylic paint to keep it. Even then, the rust shortens its life. It wasn't expensive, but a month seems like a short time for a rain gauge.

                  Cute but doesn't seem accurate

                  Comments about Yellow Bird Rain Gauge:

                  This rain gauge looks so nice in the middle of my garden. It doesn't accurately measure the amount of rain, though. As a garden ornament, it is great.

                  laudable source, shoddy quality

                  Comments about Yellow Bird Rain Gauge:

                  I support buying from cooperatives in developing countries, which is why I purchased this item. However, the stem rusted in a couple of days; beaker glass was not tempered and shattered with a casual knock.
