Additional Information

Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder Saves Seeds for the Birds

  • Prevent squirrels from pilfering bird seed
  • Richly colored red feeder is lovely in the landscape
  • Uses a weight-sensitive perch to close access to seed

The ingenious design of this rich red bird feeder allows your winged friends to dine in comfort. When a squirrel tries to get to the seed, however, its heavier weight triggers the spring-operated perch, closing access to the seed. You can even adjust the weight setting to discourage large birds, saving seeds for smaller songbirds. An easy-open, tamper-proof latch provides you easy access for filling, but foils hungry squirrels.

Product Details

  • Powder-coated steel
  • 14-1/4" L x 12" W x 7-3/4" H
  • Holds 9 lbs. of seed
  • Includes mounting bracket and metal hanger

The Best Bird Feeder Ever

By Sharon

Comments about : Red Squirrel-Proof Birdfeeder:

It really works. I no longer come home to an empty bidfeeder or even worse to find the feeder broken an on the ground. It has been great fun watching the squirrels trying to figure out how to get the birdseed out.

Some squirrels can lie sideways along the feed tray and bypass weighing down the spring operated closure device. It does fool some of the squirrels.

Squirrel Feeder

By Leah

from Houston, TX

Comments about : Red Squirrel-Proof Birdfeeder:

I have two of these feeders and they are the ONLY ones I have found that the squirrels cannot get into. I just love to watch them try. They are such smart critters but have not yet conquered this one, and I grant you my squirrels are smart. I don't particularly like the way they close, but if it keeps the squirrels away I can live with that.

                Comments about : Red Squirrel-Proof Birdfeeder:

                I have owned this feeder in the past and it kept the large birds from hogging the feed. I threw away the same feeder that was not doing this figuring it was rusted and not closing anymore, but the new one does the same thing. I had 5 house sparrows on it the other day and it still does not close on the front "heavy" setting. I am going to try mounting some sort of weight on the bar in the hopes that it will close when these heavy birds are feeding,

                The bird feeder looked great and I want something squirrel proof, so I ordered it. Unfortunately, the one I received is defective so I am returning it and asking for a refund back to my credit card.
