Squirrels are now on strike
They gave up, we enjoyed the process. Reminded us of Chicago's song "Spinning World, Got to Go Round". Easy set up. Will pay for itself in saved seed purchases.
I am so happy to have a dedicated feeder for the birds. I didn't want to hurt the squirrels so this was just perfect. A gently spin to the ground and they were off.
Squirrel's or tree rats as I affectionally call them, love my bird seed, and sunflower seeds. This is the second Yankee Droll Flipper I own, use in two spots in the yard, and I use no other feeders, other than Hummingbird feeders. This is worth the money, squirrels hate it, and have yet to figure out how to overcome the defensive action. It's actually somewhat entertaining to watch the squirrels fly through the air as that get flipped. I have owned other "Squirrel Proof" feeders, but this is the best by far. Strongly recommend it.
Broke after 1 month
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
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. This feeder might be a good purchase if you have dumb squirrels, but it won’t work if you have geniuses like we do.
Thrilled with Purchase
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!
Great! Fun to watch also
We have had this same feeder for years and has been great! I decided to order one for my dad for Father's day!
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.
Not worth the money will ultimately fail
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.
Best bird feeder out there, keeps squirrels off. Worth every penny, lasts for years.
