Birdscapes The Preserve Wild Bird Feeder
Feeding the birds can sometimes seem like a losing battle when squirrels abound. Those bushy-tailed critters just seem to overcome every measure you take. But with the Birdscapes The Preserve Bird Feeder you can outwit persistent squirrels and ensure seed is reserved for the birds. The squirrel resistant design is centered on a metal cage barrier. The barrier’s diamond shaped pattern is large enough to allow birds to enter, while being much too small for squirrels. The metal cage, cap and base prevent squirrels from chewing through to gain access to seed.
In addition to its unique squirrel resistant features, this feeder also boasts a 3 lb seed capacity, which is sure to keep your hungry backyard birds in good supply. Plus, the clear, shatter-resistant plastic reservoir makes it easy to monitor seed levels so you never run out. Four feeding ports with perches allow multiple birds to dine at the same time. To prevent messes below your feeding stations, The Preserve Bird Feeder has a wide tray base to catch dropped seeds and hulls.
- 3 lb seed capacity
- Decorative metal top, ports and perches

- Metal barrier to keep squirrels out and resist squirrel damage
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What are the most popular bird seeds to use?
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.
Q. How do I clean my bird feeders?
A. Before filling your feeder with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:
Remove all old seed.
Soak feeder in a light water/bleach solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach).
Scrub feeder and allow to air dry.
Rake and remove accumulated hulls and droppings from underneath the feeders.
Spread mulch (bark or wood) under the feeder, replace mulch when soiled.
Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.
Q. What is the importance of providing water for wild birds?
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'm back buying my second.
This is easily the most attractive of all the feeders I've seen so far and I'd like to address the two negative reviews.
I've had this feeder for over a year now and we have a ton of grey squirrels but none have ever figured out how to get seed from it. When it is shaken, the seed mostly drops in the tray. That said....the population of red tree squirrels is increasing recently and they are able to climb right through the caging. They sit inside and will even let me walk up to the feeder at times. I don't have a problem with these small squirrel, it's the greys that are destructive. And lastly another review mentioned plastic hanger......it's actually metal wire with a plastic coating.
Buy it......you'll love it.
We have ours hanging by a wire from a tree limb. (I put an 8-inch funnel upside down on the wire above the feeder to keep rats and squirrels from climbing down the wire.) We can reach it from our deck by leaning out a bit. With our old feeder, the squirrels could easily jump from the deck railing to the feeder, gorge on seed, then jump back to the railing. They'd empty it in a day.
With this model, I saw a one squirrel jump from the railing onto the feeder. He couldn't get in to the seed, and then he couldn't jump back. He had to leap to the ground 12 feet below. That was the first and last squirrel on the new feeder.
It took a week for the birds to start figuring it out. We made sure there were seeds in the tray at the bottom, so they'd be able to reach some through the wire mesh. Finally, the chickadees started figuring it out, then the finches and titmouses and creepers. Now all the small birds have mastered it. But it keeps out the blue jays, pigeons, etc.
The top is easy to remove for filling. The pressure catch on the support wire holds the top firmly in place, but is easy to loosen for filling or cleaning.
This is a very good design, and the price is right.
