Yellow Bird Rain Gauge

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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the yellow bird!

About Me Getting Started
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.
I love the rain gauge.

Much prettier than most rain gauges.
Cute little piece of junk
By Curly headed gardener
from Vancouver, WA
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It's a rain gauge with easy to read measurements & the yellow bird gives it some pizazz!
Cute , simple Rain Gauge
from Morehead, KY
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.

not as sweet as it seems
from St. Louis, MO
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
from Boston, MA
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
from Albany, NY
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.
