Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone II Home-Style Bird Feeder. Attract everything from cardinals, finches, flickers, and grackles to grosbeaks, jays, juncos, and kinglets--even sparrows, wrens, and woodpeckers. Best of all, this wild bird feeder provides an optimal feeding station for birds--without catering to those sneaky squirrels.

Sorry, Squirrels!

A charming addition to any outdoor space, this beautiful feeder features a weight-activated perch bar that closes to prevent squirrels from accessing the seed. Adjustable springs can be calibrated to accommodate different bird sizes and keep away nuisance birds and squirrels.

Easy to Fill and Use

This innovative Squirrel-Be-Gone II wild bird feeder comes fully assembled and makes a lovely addition to any personal collection or a thoughtful gift idea. This feeder holds up to 8 pounds of mixed, black oil sunflower, hulled sunflower, or safflower seed. After filling the bird feeder, simply hang it in the yard or mount it to a post, and watch as your feathered friends fly in to feast.

Suggested Placement

This wild bird feeder comes with a metal hanger for hanging near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.

Cleaning the Feeder

Be sure to keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure happy birds and return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it every few weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

Wild Birds love:

  • Wide seed-dispensing port
  • Comfortable perch
  • Fresh seed continuously

You'll love:

  • Weight-activated squirrel technology
  • Durable, all metal construction
  • Removable roof peak for easy filling
  • No assembly required
  • Pure enjoyment and relaxation watching wild birds feeding

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works. No squirrels This feeder is built to last, and it keeps squirrels from feasting on your bird seed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from didn't work The idea is great and it looks attractive. However, after the third day, the squirrels figured out how to hang off the edge without stepping on the bar that covers the feeding compartments. I have gone back tp my previous feeder and am convinced there is no such think as a squirrel proof bird feeder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Show I had the privilege of watching a squirrel for about 20 minutes try every tactic to get food from the feeder. It is truly squirrel proof. The show had us laughing so much !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features, holds large amount of seed. Currently am using two feeders at two locations, recently ordered two more. Had to repair plastic window broken also top locking wind vane broken by squirrels. Needed is replacement parts for these feeders. They get a lot of rough use and sometimes from deer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice concept, doesn't work It worked for about five minutes. I bought this yesterday and after the third attempt, the squirrels were on the feeder below. I tried every conceivable height, but nothing deterred the squirrels.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Squirrels broke in within a week! I tried everything prior to this Baffler. These squirrels almost gave up on my feeder, but not quite. It seems as though they called in a professional to do the job. He actually broke the heavy plastic hook in half (like you see in the photo). Not sure if it ate threw it or clawed it, but it was broken in half. I can't tell you the $$ I went through to keep squirrels out of my bird feeder. I give up and throw in the towel! I thought after seeing so many fail to get at this, I'd actually found the perfect product. Nothing, nowhere is squirrel proof apparantly. And people say animals are stupid? I wish I had had a camera on this to see how it actually broke. The only evidence was the fat and happy squirrel laying next to it on the ground so full he couldn't move.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My squirrels must be geniuses I love these! Look great, wonderful construction. But my squirrels have taken both tops off. I'm using 'bungee' cords to hold them on. Make sure you wrap the coeds around the handle also, so they can't slip them off. LOL I'd still buy these again.

How do you fill this feeder?

Asked by: Jubuggranny
To fill the feeder, twist the cardinal weather vane so that it unlocks the roof. Then, gently lift the roof and fill the inside of the feeder. Once full, place the roof back on top and twist the cardinal weather vane until it is again locked into place.

Can you hang these bird feeders about 4' off the ground and the squirrels not bother it?

Asked by: MESA
Squirrels are expert jumpers and can leap vertically up to 5 feet. We recommend hanging feeders at least 5 feet from the ground and 10 feet away from other launching points such as fences, branches, decks, and rooftops.

I could not keep the squirrels out and which way the tension should be set to get the squirrels to fall of the feeder.

Asked by: Mohamed
Depending on the species and age of squirrels in your area, you may need to experiment with the tension settings on the feeder. To increase tension for heavier animals, lower the adjustment pin. To decrease tension for lighter animals, raise the pin to a higher slot position.
