Brome 1016 Squirrel Buster Finch
Equipped with patented Squirrel Buster technology, this Brome 1016 Squirrel Buster Finch feeder offers an innovative design that attracts birds while keeping squirrels at bay. The bird feeder holds 1.4 quarts of bird seed, whether it's Black Oil sunflower seed (a good all-round birdseed) or other seed blends specific to your area.
The squirrel-proof bird feeder attracts a wide variety of clinging and perching birds including the American Gold Finch, the Chickadee, the Indigo Bunting, and the Purple Finch. The unit features a specialized nyjer/mix feeder for high-quality performance, and its innovative design means that eight birds can feed at the same time.
Squirrel-Proof / Chew-Proof
Openings in the wire shroud align with seed ports and provide birds access to the seed. When a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, its weight automatically forces the shroud down, closing access to the seed ports. All squirrels and many large birds are blocked from accessing the food, but are not harmed in any way.
The Closing Mechanism
The spring mechanism is calibrated at the factory to close at 4 ounces (115 g). The smaller red squirrels, as well as the larger gray squirrels, are shut out at this setting.
Negative Grip Tube
The bird feeder features a negative grip tube that prevents squirrels from grabbing the wire hanger with their hind legs and hanging alongside the feeder, defeating the closing mechanism.
The bottom of the yellow center post cap marks the maximum seed level. Filling past this mark will impede the shroud from closing. Do not fill past this mark.
Patented Seed Tube Ventilation System
Transparent seed tubes are like greenhouses; they trap solar energy. Traditional seed tube cover designs block the escape of heated air. The patented Seed Tube Ventilation System in the Squirrel Buster Finch permits humidity and warm air to escape through vents at the top of the feeder. The escaping air is replaced by fresh air entering through the seed ports. The result: seed remains fresher and attracts more birds.
Place the Feeder Almost Anywhere
Position your feeder just about anywhere--without having to worry about those pesky squirrels. Hang the Squirrel Buster Finch over a window, in a tree, on a deck or fence, in your garden, on the side of your house, from a rain gutter, or over sliding doors to get great close-up views of your favorite birds. The bird feeder hangs easily with the use of a wall bracket, extension hook, or branch hook (sold separately).
Easy to Fill and Clean
The Squirrel Buster Finch dismantles for convenient filling, and cleans up easily by hand. Do not put it in the dishwasher; it is not dishwasher-safe.

NOTE about shipping: this feeder was shipped "as is" in its original box, a shortcut that I did not appreciate. These feeders are pricey, as other reviewers have noted, and worth it, but they DO contain calibrated springs and moving parts, the product needs to be shipped inside a shipping box. The first Brome feeder I ordered was shipped properly, no idea why this one was not. Luckily it suffered no damage and is an outstanding product in action.
So, use a hangar extension between the feeder cable and the hook. For sale are Branch Hooks, Extension Hooks by the same company (Brome)
Secondly, don't hang this thing where Mr. Squirrel climbs the tree or pole and simply reaches across. You must ensure the horizontal distance between the pole and the feeder exceeds "arms length" for a squirrel, causing Mr. Squirrel to jump onto the feeder, and weight triggering the deterrent mesh device.Read more ›
