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.

how do i load feeder
Answer by ChewyApr 08, 2018
To fill the feeder, you must first remove the metal cover located at the top and you can proceed to fill the container. Once completed, replace the metal cover to secure it.

How do I take this feeder apart to clean it?
Answer by ChewySep 10, 2018
The lid of this feeder can be removed. To wash the feeder, use a mild soap and water solution.

Will this prevent bigger birds from getting to the seed?
Answer by ChewyApr 23, 2018
Weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and access to the seeds so bigger birds will not be able to perch on this feeder.

what country is this made in?
Answer by ChewyNov 21, 2018
This bird feeder is made in China.

Almost perfect

Feeder is a great size, hold a lot of feed and is easy to fill...however...two problems that have required some Macgyvering on my part. 1) The roof and the tube cap do not form a perfect seal up top, so rain does get in and the seed gets moldy. I had to take a plastic lid and rig a rain shield to cover the gap, which did the trick. 2) re the spring system (squirrel deterrent) you may want to use a slightly stronger gauge spring. I noticed that when birds (sparrow sized) try to feed at more than three ports, that is enough weight to lower the system enough so that they can't get their heads into the ports. I've shortened the springs a bit for less of a drop...a stronger spring would still be effective against the weight of a rodent, but not impact the birds. With just some slight reconfiguring, this would be 5* feeder. And then I would recommend to a friend.

Squirrels still got the seed!

This feeder claims to keep out squirrels, but it doesn't. The placement of the very thin metal "leaves" on this feeder are half covering the ports and that is without any kind of pressure on the cage. Yup, my boys just climber up and hung the feeder and emptied the entire feeder as well as chewed the plastic ports. And this feeder holds a lot of seed! I ended having to place the feeder else where other than the feeder poles I also bought. As for the birds, I easily bent the leaves to open the access ports for the birds to get the seed inside. A bit disappointed with this purchase. Not Chewy's fault, just a bad design.

Outstanding

This feeder is outstanding! It's lovely to look at and very efficient. Ingenious system of openings with perches that close a window with the weight of a squirrel on them. Watched the other day as a squirrel climbed up the pole, leaned over to the feeder, attempted to eat, and jumped back down when it wasn't successful. Exactly why I bought this product and great to see how well it works.

Squirrel baffler

So far -so good. Red squirrels have made numerous attempts and tried several angles to get at seed. They have been foiled up to this point-

Works to discourage bigger birds

I'm on my second of these but find that the baffle below the feeders is the best discouragement for squirrels. They can't leap from any tree onto the feeder and can't swing themself up from under the baffle. Pretty sure they would figure out a way around the mechanism if they could reach the feeder! But grackles, jays and woodpeckers were emptying my feeders daily. Put a cage around 1 and replaced the other with the squirrel be gone feeder. First squirrel be gone lasted 2 years and this 2nd one is on year three. Very happy with it!

do not buy

Feeder lasted less than a day before the squirrels opened the cover and broke the springs. The springs are not repairable and even if they were the squirrels would destroy again.

Squirrel broke it within 2 days

I loved the idea of keeping the squirrels away from the seed but the squirrel tried to eat through the inside plastic tube and jumped in order to get into the seed. The top of the feeder ended up breaking.

Non-functioning

The weight of the frame pulls it down covering the openings so the birds are unable to eat. Keeps the squirrels out, but the birds too.

my favorite feeder

I use two of these. One is at least two and the other at least three years old, with smaller birds happily feeding regularly. A spring popped on one - easy fix. Now, I keep squirrel feeders right nearby on the theory that everyone's got to eat, and everyone does eat and everyone's happy. My set up works well for me and I will keep purchasing Perky-Pet's "Squirrel-Be-Gone" feeders. I think two years is a reasonable life expectancy for any continually used feeder. These have exceeded that.
