Description

Keep the birds fed and the squirrels off with the Droll Yankees Yankee Flipper Motorized Bird Feeder. It has four seed ports so birds can feed easily and it keeps the seeds flowing to satisfy even the hangriest of birds! The squirrel-proof design is built with a spinning motor that won’t be set off by even large birds like woodpeckers, but the minute a squirrel hops on, the feeder spins to gently throw the squirrel from the perch. It features a UV-resistant polycarbonate tube that can stand up to heavy duty outdoor use, durable looped stainless steel hanging wire, and comes in fade-proof forest green so it looks great in any garden or backyard.

Key Benefits
  • Motorized design spins when a squirrel lands on the perch to gently throw the intruder off.
  • Free-flowing seed action keeps birds happily fed and has four feeder ports to accommodate multiple visitors.
  • Outdoor-proof with UV-resistant 5-pound capacity polycarbonate tube, heavy duty metal components, and tightly-fitting metal cap.
  • Weight-triggered spinning motor won’t be activated by birds, even larger ones like cardinals and woodpeckers.
  • Perfect for cardinals, chickadees, finches, flickers, goldfinches, grackles, grosbeaks, jays, juncos, kinglets, nuthatches, sparrows, and more.

    Broke after 1 month

    By Broken on Jul 7, 2021

    Was excited about this feeder, and it seemed to work pretty well at first. Noticeable difference in how much birdseed I was going through. However, after a month, the turning of the perch appears to have stripped the threads on the assembly unit, and the whole thing fell off. I screwed it back on, but it won't stay and fell off again the first time a grackle landed on it. Disappointed that it broke so quickly, as it was pretty pricey.

    Squirrels beat this in two days

    By Susie on May 20, 2021

    I had heard from neighbors that this worked really well, and I was so excited to get it and hang it up. It worked as a squirrel deterrent for about two days, and then they developed a strategy to clean out my feeder again. What they discovered is that the spinning motion of the feeder shakes the birdseed out of the feeder quite rapidly. They jump onto the perch and hang on as long as they can as birdseed practically sprays out from the feeder. Once they’ve been shaken off, they scurry around like kids cleaning up after a piñata has burst. When the squirrels want more food, they simply grab on and go for another ride.

    Thrilled with Purchase

    By Kitt on Mar 7, 2021

    Too early to know it's effectiveness but I am surprised that the Yankee Flipper is much larger than I expected. This pleases me because I won't have to refill it as often as smaller feeders. It appears to be quite sturdy and the instructions are easy to follow. Lastly, I have been considering one of these for many months and was very happy to find it on Chewy at the best price I could find online. So I am thrilled with this purchase. I am also pleased with Chewy's customer service--when I notified them that my initial order never arrived, they sent out a replacement order which indeed DID arrive in the estimated 3 days!

    Not worth the money will ultimately fail

    By Birdliker on Feb 7, 2021

    I have had this feeder about 9 months. Worked well at first. Squirrels eventually found a way to jam their body between the feed hole and ring. I assume there is a clutch inside that now is worn. In any case this expensive feeder does not work anymore. Squirrels are extremely persistent and will eventually find a way to defeat most squirrel proof feeders. So I would not recommend investing in a complex/expensive one. I also own a Brohe Squirrel Solution 200. That one is much simpler and works well. You will need to modify the top as the squirrels found a way to pry it off. I also own a Squirrel Buster Suet feeder. It is a bit more pricey but is an excellent feeder.

    Entertaining

    By Birds on Apr 22, 2021

    This feeder is worth the price. You get to watch the birds eat, but once a squirrel jumps up, it goes for a ride. It really works and I would recommend it.

    Fantastic Bird Feeder

    By Billie on Feb 1, 2021

    Not only does it keep the squirrels off the feeder it's entertaining too. When the battery gets weak the squirrels maybe able to hang on to the feeder so keep it charged up. Over time the squirrels only test it occasionally.

    squirrels figured it out

    By badfeeder on Dec 25, 2020

    If I still had the box, I would return this feeder. Yes, the squirrels swing around and eventually get off. However, they know that when they do that, all the seeds fall down: goal accomplished. We have more seeds on the ground than in the feeder and the squirrels eat most of them. If only the feeding holes got blocked off when the squirrels jump on the feeder. Very disappointing.
