Birds Don't Like it
We have several feeders in our yard. I bought this one because it seemed it would deter squirrels and the rain shouldn't have gotten in easily. Well the birds did not take to it all! I had a few try it out but they never stayed. There would be several birds on the other feeders but this one none of the birds would go go it. Also after the first rain the seed got very wet. Had to throw out the seed.
Worse design ever!
I think this is the worse designed bird feeder I've ever seen. I had to take it down because it wasn't working at all. It's now taking up space on my front porch I ended up digging my old bird feeder out of the trash and putting it back up. It might not be squirrel proof, but at least, it doesn't dump everything immediately to the ground where the birds are most vulnerable and the squirrels can freely eat. Here's the thing: the weighted closing off of ports is suppose to close the feeder off from squirrels. But without being able to adjust for weight, I think the baby squirrels can get into it. I'd probably not worry much about that; however, the silicone window covers that supposedly keep the seed in and the rodents out are a total joke. They were chewed out or pecked off inside of two weeks. I was wondering why the seed was going up so quickly. I was filling it up and it would be down inside of two hours. Then I realized it was all on the ground. As it got worse, the seed just fell out immediately since the little seed window covers were mostly gone. Put the seed in, and it just comes right back out. Like I said, worse design ever I strongly suggest that Chewy stop selling this product and that Perky Pet, which does make other decent products, go back to the drawing board on this one. It doesn't work at all. Also, in the first 2 weeks when it sort of worked, the 4 ports are really not enough for the hundreds of birds that come by our yard every day. More are needed.
doesn't last long
the plastic ports get worn and become big holes for all the birdfood to fall out of! good idea but doesn't hold up. rest of feeder is fine. but useless if all the food falls out....
My Squirrel free bird feeder
I recommend that anyone who feed the birds outside to get this bird feeder. It keeps the squirrels away and the squirrels are actually scared of this bird feeder.
Keeps out squirres AND birds
This feeder keeps out squirrels and all the birds. None of them from the smallest to the largest could figure out how to get to the seed. The four plastic flaps inside each feeder hole keep the birds beaks out. Cost me a lot and I cannot use it.
I was really excited to try out this squirrel proof feeder! This summer has been horrible with them knocking my bird feeders down. I came out the next morning after hanging this up to find this! The concept was nice but I guess the squirrels around me are smarter than I ordinarily thought :)
It’s well made and sturdy. Could not believe how fast the birds flocked to it ! Usually anything new birds need time to get use to using it - but this feeder attracted them instantly! Squirrel tried to get seeds but his weight closed feeder ports - worked great to keep him out! The rubber cut out feeder ports help hold seeds much better when birds peck at them to get seeds. The platforms leafy shape are wider than stick posts for birds to land on are great! Wider shape feeder posts are what I think attracted birds to hopping on feeder - lots of room for their feet. There are 4 feeding posts which work out just fine. Easy to fill up and hang. It’s mostly metal - only clear canister is plastic (a thick plastic) that holds seeds. A great all around feeder! You won’t be disappointed!
great against squirrels!
This is a very good feeder for the sunflower seeds I feed the birds. I have it hanging from a deck roof which has always been a problem and the squirrels can reach any type feeder I hang up there from the railing. BUT, one paw on the perch and he learned he can't get anything! other bonus, it holds a lot! one drawback, the birds struggled to get the seeds out at first, so those little tabs are soft and flexible and I just snipped the 2 highest ones off which gave them more room for their beak to grab one. Unfortunately, the Cardinal's won't use those perches, but they clean up the ones on the deck that others throw out.
See for yourself..
The bird feeder is very sturdy and heavy. Very well made. BUT I wouldn’t advertise this as a “squirrel proof” feeder. The squirrels have made short work of this feeder, just look at the picture! The squirrels are IN the feeder.
Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone works great!
This is definitely squirrel proof. They have tried! The birds love it, but the bigger birds struggle a little with the size of the platforms and location of the feeding holes to the platforms. Overall I am very happy with it.
