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.
- Yankee Family - Lifetime Warranty Against Squirrel Damage.
- Limited Warranty on electronics.
How the Yankee Flipper works:
The large 5 pound capacity Yankee Flipper is a motor driven, battery powered, weight activated squirrel-proof feeder. It allows the birds to eat and saves seed by keeping squirrels away.
Birds will not set it off!
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.
Birds that use this feeder:
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

Note: A few months later, a couple of squirrels have defeated the feeder. I am now frustrated and disappointed. They were able to hang from the mounting pole and grab the feeder holes while just touching the flipper bar. The bar would spin and spin and they would exhaust the battery. Seed would be falling during the spinning for their friends on the ground! Once the battery was exhausted, it was a squirrel feeder. After recharging the unit, I hung the feeder from a tree branch, about six feet from the ground. I used a vinyl coated wire to hang the feeder and there are no nearby branches. It only took the squirrels a few hours before they were able to slide down the wire to the top of the feeder, then they would slide down the feeder and grab the feeder holes like before, while they used a body part to make the flipper bar spin to drain the battery again! Unbelievable! There is no such thing as a squirrel proof feeder!
For those seeking to hurl a squirrel round and round, consider hanging from a tree limb using a chain / rope rather than hanging on a traditional pole with baffle. Once the squirrel latches on a pole hung feeder, it won't fly around and around unimpeded. Also, it doesn't come with a feeder tray. While it was never advertised as such, the absence of a feeder allows a significant amount of food to fall freely on the ground below - defeating the reason for a powered ring. The squirrels or heavy birds have no incentive to risk being flung due to the literal buffet below. The feeder cannot allow an aftermarket tray either, though for this price, the unit should come with one.
Watch the video that is posted with the item. Hysterical. We found unfortunately that the squirrels out smarted the feeder [not kidding] and we just laughed until there were tears in our eyes. We had one squirrel that would touch the ring, watch it go and then grab a seed in between the twirling,
The feeder is well made, durable, but does lose a lot of seed when birds [and squirrels] are feeding. I fastened a netlike pouch to catch the seed and then refill the feeder with it. I would not buy this again for the squirrel-proof feature but it is durable. I can find another Yankee feeder that is not as expensive and does the trick. Watch the video. Go to the 3 minute mark for the squirrel vs bird feeder.
