A favorite of almost every backyard feeder bird. They have easy to crack, thin shells and can be offered in a wide variety of feeder types, like platform, tube, and hopper feeders. These seeds also have a high fat content that is perfect for giving birds energy all year long, especially in winter.
This Yankee Flipper squirrel-proof feeder is the ultimate feeder for keeping your feathered friends fed, and the furred fiends hungry. Let's talk about the basics first. The sturdy polycarbonate feeding chamber is a whopping 4-3/4 inches in diameter and 21 inches long, giving you a break between refills--and ensuring that squirrels can't hang down from the top to reach seed. The four feeding chambers are easily accessible via the perch ring, and the interior of the chamber is designed to direct seed into the seed ports.
Now, for the fun stuff: The birdfeeder features an encased motor and rechargeable (and replaceable) batteries. When you receive the feeder, simply charge the batteries overnight, hang the feeder from its looped bail wire, and prepare to be amazed (and entertained!). The motor is connected to the weight activated perch ring--birds will not set it off, even larger species like woodpeckers and cardinals. But the minute a squirrel hops onto the perch, the motor is triggered and the feeder begins spinning, taking the squirrel for a whirl before it loses its grip and is thrown (gently) from the perch. It's a humanitarian way to deal with persistent squirrels--there are no shocks or poisons to hurt them, simply a wild ride that they won't be inclined to repeat. Birds are free to eat without disruption, and your family will get a kick out of watching squirrels go for their rides. There's a lifetime warranty on the feeder body and a one-year warranty on the motor and battery charger. --Ariel Meadow Stallings

I did have to buy an extra long shepherd's hook to hang it on because it is so big.

still waiting on the squirrels to get some.
NI CAD batteris. Considering price point. COME ON guys. get some lithium ion batteries and a light LED to tell you when its done charging on adapter. Time to modernise this thing.
look at a NAPA trouble light"93362-Li". as example. LED indicator and automatic cut off when done charging. lasta way longer than ni cad.
Who runs ni cad anymore.
Good quality though otherwise. I am scared to open lid because the side plastic is so thin at the drilled holes. I hope it does not crack due to its spring loaded upper stainless strong hanger.
i might weld on a second larger ring. If bird is too heavy though the bird would be flung off too i guess. lol,
