3.0 out of 5 stars Not 100% squirrel proof, January 28, 2007
This review is from: Brome 1024 Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder with Cardinal Perch Ring (Lawn & Patio)
The feeder is excellent at keeping out the larger gray squirrels, but smaller red squirrels figured out how to beat it. They manage to hang enough of their butts over the edge to open the feeder. The spring is adjusted to that morning doves (larger birds) can use it - if you don't have any of these, you may be able to lower the spring tension to keep the red squirrels from winning.

Heavy metal though the feeder is, the squirrels chewed their way through the cover until the cover broke from the feeder and thus- the feeder was no good for anything anymore. It did take a couple of years for them to accomplish the chewing. They are just plain pesky animals.

That's "mourning dove". Don't they just sound like they are in mourning to you.
Damn squirrels. They once ate their way through a garbage can to get to the bird feed. I now keep the feed in the basement.

Squirrels chewing through metal. Never heard about it never seen it. Maybe it was a rat, they are able to do this kind of stuff. We have 2 of this feeders since 4 years and they work.

Squirrels are rats. A rodent by any other name is still a rodent.
