Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone Wild Bird Feeder, BrownBy Perky-Pet
About This Item
- Features six feeding ports, with U-shaped perches for birds to rest on.
- The feeding ports have sturdy metal perches that allow birds to feed comfortably.
- When the squirrels perch, their weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and their access to the seed.
- The interior seed tower is surrounded by rustic metalwork and boasts a two-pound seed capacity.
- The clear, shatter-proof plastic reservoir makes it easy to monitor seed levels.

do not buy
springs pop out and break. I was able to fix them however the bigger problem is that birds will not eat from it? tried all 3 settings, left it out for 2 weeks yet feeder is still full. Put our old one back up and it was full of birds within minutes.
Feeder is all one color. No visual cue as to where feeding holes or perches are. In snall container spray white spray paint. Dab onto perches. Same with forrest green to add depth and a little camouflage. Birds will return.
Can’t figure it out, left the old feeder out with the new one and they emptied the old one with not one bird even sitting on this one. Took the old one down a few days ago, still not one bird! Is it possible the perches are too small?
This is the only birdfeeder I have ever had that the squirrels cannot get into if hung properly. The feeder must be away from anything on which a squirrel could stand. Free hanging works. They can still get to the seeds but it is so much work they don't try. I love it!
Feeder that can be adjusted to keep bigger birds and squirrels out
I bought this from Chewy a little while ago. No problems with bigger birds or squirrels HOWEVER...major problem with rain storms. The rain goes into the feeder and the food is almost impossible to move in it. And it didn't come with instructions about how to adjust the springs to make it less apt to let heavier critters eat from it.
nice but does not deter
This feeder is nicely made but I’m sorry to say it does stop squirrels or large birds. They are large and agile enough to just hold on using the fixed wires that run down the edges, completely ignoring the small steps that close the doors. So buy it if you like the looks, but keep searching if your goal is to feed only the small songbirds.
Like this feeder but my squirrel has learned how to remove the top cap! Putting screw in top to see if that will stop the little bugger.
best large feeder for the money
This costs 3X less than a big name brand (in the bird feeder world); yet holds more than many others. More birds can eat at one time because it has 6 ports for them to eat. I don't have to fill it as often. The top keeps out rain; and it appears that the seed just inside the ports are kept fairly dry even during a lot of rain/snow. I just purchased a second one and might buy another in the future. I put hulled sunflower seed in, but peanut chips will fit also. I am going to try a nut/seed mixture next. I believe it will not allow squirrels to eat because the wire falls down when a heavier bird sits on a port. I'm not positive about squirrels because I have it set up where they cannot reach it.
I really like this bird feeder because it is just for the birds and keeps squirrels and chipmunks from getting all of the food.
Sturdy and attractive feeder. Holds a lot of seed and attracts a lot beautiful birds. The cardinals are my favorite,.
