Droll Yankees - Yankee Flipper
Birds will not set it off, not even larger species like Woodpeckers and Cardinals. But the minute a squirrel hops on to 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.
The funniest squirrel-proof bird feeder on the market!
- The minute a squirrel hops on to the perch, the motor is triggered and the feeder begins spinning.
- 21″ long clear UV stabilized polycarbonate tube.

Key features of the Yankee Flipper
Yankee Family Lifetime Warranty:
Droll Yankees will replace any defective part, free of charge, for as long as you own your Droll Yankees feeder. If your feeder is badly damaged by squirrels, to the extent that the effectiveness of the feeder is compromised, Droll Yankees will, at its option, either repair, replace or send replacement parts, free of charge. This warranty does not extend to damage through improper use, improper cleaning, weather, neglect, abuse, modification, disassembly, or falls. Raccoon and bear damage coverage is limited. Feeders must be removed until the pests depart.
The body of any Yankee Family squirrel-proof feeder (YF, YCPW-180, YCPT-360, YCPD-90), comprised of the tube, bail wire, bail rod, cap, feed ports, cone and silo assembly, and the base, is covered by Droll Yankees Lifetime Warranty against squirrel damage, shown above.
The Yankee Flipper (YF) Power Stick, AC/DC Adapter, and the collapsible perch mechanisms (of the YCPT-360, YCPW-180 and the YCPD-90) are warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from date of purchase. This Limited Warranty applies only to the original purchaser possessing a valid sales receipt.
The heavy metal cap fits snugly on the tube to prevent squirrels from lifting it to reach the seed.
With the metal top and base powder coated in Forest Green, the Flipper looks great in any yard.
The clear feeder tube makes the seed visible to the birds, a proven advantage. Made of UV Stabilized Polycarbonate, it ensures long lasting durability without yellowing, its length and girth are designed to prevent squirrels from reaching the seed ports.
Hang the Flipper securely from its heavy-duty signature-looped stainless-steel wire, which helps to reduce motion that would otherwise spill seed.
The four feeding ports are easily accessible via the perch ring.
Better Seed Mileage:
Feed the birds and not the squirrels!
21-inch long seed tube ensures that squirrels can't reach the seed from the tops of the feeders.
With a large 5-pound capacity, the bird feeder doesn't need to be refilled every day, and be rest assured that the seeds are flowing freely to all four ports (thanks to the feeder's internal baffle system).
The internal baffle design keeps seed flowing freely to the ports.

Cardinals, Chickadees, Finches, Flickers, Goldfinches, Grackles, Grosbeaks, Jays, Juncos, Kinglets, Nuthatches, Redpolls, Siskins, Sparrows, Starlings, Titmice, Towhees, Woodpeckers and Wrens.
For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush to brush away grime inside the tube.

The Yankee Flipper comes with a motor-driven, battery-powered, weight-activated perch ring that expels squirrels when they try to get at the bird seed. When a squirrel steps on the perch, a connection is made with a motor that makes the perch spin, and the squirrel is flipped off the feeder. The unit comes equipped with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium power stick battery and a battery charger that plugs into standard 120 volt wall outlets. Sturdy stainless steel wire hanger will not rust. 21" long tubular feeder with 5 lb seed capacity. Metal cap fits snugly so that squirrels cannot pry it off. 4-1/2" diameter seed tube is made of UV stabilized polycarbonate for durability. Tube is long enough so that squirrels can't hang down from the top and reach seed. Interior is properly baffled to direct seed to the seed ports. Four seed ports are positioned around the tube. Metal parts have a forest green finish.
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'm pretty cheap, but the Droll Yankee Co. seems to have a good reputation so I wasn't too reluctant to part with the bucks for this feeder. My first impression was that it is a lot larger than I expected and seemed to be sturdier than most feeders.
I plugged it in and let it charge overnight (it charges like a power screwdriver), filled it with black-oil sunflower and hung it in my favorite bird feeder tree the next morning. My Carolina-chickadees and Cardinals were feeding within thirty minutes, Mr.Squirrel made his first attempt after about an hour. There is really no way I can describe what followed. Let's just say I have some really freaked out squirrels around my house.
I have had the feeder up for over a month, the squirrels have been forced to feed from the spilled seed on the ground and the feeder is still operating from the original charge.
This feeder is is worth every penny and then some. I wish I could give it more than five stars.
The feeder came completely set up; there was no assembly to do. Amazon had put the Flipper box into a larger box for shipping. It came in excellent shape.
As advertised, the Nicad batteries were completely discharged. Thus step one is to charge the batteries overnight.
How It Works: The ring that the birds sit on will not deflect with the weight of a bird. Bigger birds do not trip the mechanism; we've even had a red-bellied woodpecker taking sunflower seeds from the feeder. But when excessive weight is on the ring it tilts down, turns on the motor and starts the ring turning. Then the motor deactivates when the weight is off the ring.
There are two screws that you can tighten to prevent the mechanism from tilting (thus turning on). I recommend you use these when the unit is in the charge cycle.
The ports that the birds take seeds from are well designed and the birds can eat to the last seed without any problem.
When looking at the picture of the feeder, I thought it would be better if the feeder had more feeding ports. Now that we have the feeder, I think the ports only on the bottom are better. I let the feeder get pretty well empty before I refill it.
After filling the feeder two or three times I found it useful to turn the feeder over and dump out the dust and foreign particles that are in the seed. We've attached an S hook to the tree with a plastic tie wrap which has made it convenient to lift off the feeder to dump and refill.
Regarding the mechanism: I recommend that for the first few days when the feeder is out, keep the lock down screws turned to prevent rotation. Then the mechanism will not turn on when a squirrel jumps on the feeder. After you see some squirrels on the feeder, loosen the screws and watch the action!
If you like feeding the birds and agitating the squirrels, you will love this feeder.
