I have two bird feeders outside my home office window. One is the Brome 1024 Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder with Cardinal Perch Ring which does an amazing job of preventing squirrels from getting the food and greatly controls waste (seeds falling to the ground). I had a second basic feeder (looks like a little house) and tried adding one of the Squirrel baffles above it but they just push it down and hop on, wasting seed. So I decided that I needed a better bird feeder which could stop squirrels. I found this in the Arundale Mandarin Sky Café.
I positioned the feeder as instructed in the enclosed instructions and sat back to watch. Birds took to it quite quickly and I observed several cardinals, finches and sparrows making use of it. Then the squirrels discovered the feeder and started their attempt to get to the seed. They climb down the chain with ease and hang on to it with one foot and reach down to try to get to the seed. Discovering that they can't they let go of the chain and try to inch forward a little and wind up sliding off to the ground below. After numerous attempts, they gave up and have relegated themselves to any seed which falls to the ground. Thus far, it really is Squirrel-proof! I'll report back after a month or two of additional observation.
The feeder itself is very well built and designed. It's pretty big and holds a lot of seed which is great! The platform which holds the seed is a nice size and provides enough room for birds to comfortably sit and feed. I like the larger tray which wraps around the feeder as it allows various birds more freedom to move around and feed (compared to the individual slots on the Squirrel Buster feeder which I have) The slots on the Sky Cafe which allow the feed out onto the platform are sized to prevent excess seeds from falling out thus saving on wasted seed. The roof of the feeder is great. It provides enough overhang to shelter the birds and food from the weather and most importantly, is strongly sloped to prevent squirrels from getting a foothold to get to the seed platform.
So far I am very happy with this purchase.
feeder. It hangs right outside my kitchen window and is TV for my two Maine Coon cats. Birds
are not scared by them, but come in droves. I reach out kitchen window and pour in seed from
