Backyard bird watching can be a soothing morning activity, but if you find your bird feeders are constantly raided by squirrels, this squirrel-proof bird feeder offers an easy solution that will bring the birds back to your yard.

How It Works

This Droll Yankees bird feeder will keep squirrels at bay with an innovative design. The motorized perch ring is designed to start spinning under the weight of a squirrel to “flip” the squirrel off the bird feeder, but it won’t scare birds away.

Durable and High Capacity

This bird feeder isn’t just squirrel-proof, it’s also all-weather friendly. The heavy-duty metal base and cap are designed to withstand the elements, and the seed tube is UV-stabilized to prevent fading. Each feeder has four feeding ports so you can attract multiple birds at once and holds up to five pounds of bird seed so you won’t constantly need to refill.

Why Customers Love It

With over 1,200 Amazon reviews and an average rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, Amazon customers are definitely satisfied with this squirrel-proof bird feeder. Customers noticed that squirrels were immediately rejected from the feeder, and they also saw an increase in birds. One customer loved that the feeding tube was large enough for different kinds of food including sunflower seeds so they could attract larger birds and a wider variety to their yard.

Q: Tim, please help me. My husband and I are at odds as to what’s slowly ruining all of my wonderful clear glasses and heat-treated glass items in my kitchen. Each time I remove them from my dishwasher, they look worse. My husband states it’s just hard water. I tried soaking some of the ruined things in hot white vinegar, and there was no change. It’s got to be something else, but I can’t figure it out. Can you shed light on this? —Sandra P., Las Vegas
