Turn your yard into a bird lovers' paradise. This Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone Wild Bird Feeder attracts everything from cardinals, doves, finches, flickers, and grackles to grosbeaks, jays, juncos, and kinglets--even sparrows, wrens, and woodpeckers. Best of all, this wild bird feeder provides an optimal feeding station for birds--without catering to those sneaky squirrels.
A charming addition to any outdoor space, this beautiful feeder features a durable plastic seed chamber, attractive metal caging with a powder-coated rustic brown finish, and ornamental leaves that are more than just decorative.
This feeder's innovative weight-activated exterior cage wraps protectively around the seed compartment. When a squirrel climbs onto the cage, the spring-loaded exterior cage drops down, throwing the squirrel off balance and lowering the ornamental leaves on the cage down into position where they effectively act as a barrier, covering the seed ports and preventing squirrels from pillaging the seed supply. Easy-to-access settings allow for adjusting the cage's spring tension as necessary.
This feeder's six seed ports nicely dispense bird seed, while its six bird-preferred, U-shaped metal perches allow birds to comfortably perch and feed. The bird's weight won't lower the cage, but when a squirrel climbs on, down it goes.
This innovative Squirrel-Be-Gone wild bird feeder comes fully assembled and makes a lovely addition to any personal collection or a thoughtful gift idea. This feeder holds up to 2 pounds of black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, or mixed seed. After filling the bird feeder, simply hang it in the yard, and watch as your feathered friends swoop in to celebrate.
This wild bird feeder comes with a wire loop for hanging near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.
The clear, plastic seed compartment makes it easy to monitor seed levels at a glance. Be sure to keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed or feed to ensure happy birds and return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it every few weeks with a mild soap and water solution.
A. Black Oil Sunflower Seed is the most popular bird seed. It is much smaller than the traditional sunflower seed and best for those birds with smaller bills, such as the sparrow, junco and goldfinch. This seed is accepted by the greatest variety of birds.
Mixed Seed is also popular. It is best to buy the mixes that contain white proso millet, a tiny cream colored seed with a shiny shell. Mixes containing finely cracked corn and black oil sunflower are also preferred by a large number of birds.
Nyger (Thistle Seed) is imported from Africa and Asia. Nyger won't germinate, however, it has a tendency to become moldy due to lack of air circulation. If you notice mold on the seed, it must be removed from the feeder and the feeder must be cleaned thoroughly.
A. Before filling your feeder with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:
A. Wild birds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need seed. Birds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also for bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide birds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for birds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy. By adding a water source, you also can attract a larger variety of birds to your yard. You may even attract more colorful birds that don't eat seed, but are in need of water!

I have determined that by definition I am insane. I continue to buy these POS feeders and expect a different outcome but it is always the same – squirrels win. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Robert Schwantz
This feeder works by springs. The birds land on the perches and the lightweight birds are not heavy enough to activate the springs. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Darena Shopz
