    I've gotten mine at Wal Mart and so far they have not leaked.
    You might try a higher end style. Do a google search and see what you find:)

    I bought one at WalMart and this is the 3rd year using it. I don't have a problem with it leaking. My husband on the other hand, squeezed it and it squirted out all over his shirt. Here in Oh, feeders are put out May 1st and taken down September 15th. I put mine up on Sunday - May Day! We love sitting on our deck and watching all the birds.

    The one we had was a upside down wine bottle with a cork and spigot...it worked until son knocked it off the hook.

    That sounds like something my son would do!

    I have also bought mine at WM and no problems at all. I put my feeder out last Wednesday morning and they were at the feeder that afternoon. I have had lots of goldfinches so far too.
