Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Home-Style Bird Feeder
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.
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.
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.

I ordered this feeder three times. The first two times it arrived damaged. I should have given up after the second time but I gave it one more chance. The packaging was no sturdier but somehow it survived shipping. The sheet metal is pretty thin. Well, we got it up and installed and the birds have been loving it. But the first time I tried to fill the feeder, the lockdown on the lid was frozen shut. And we'd had two days of sunshine albeit cold weather. I had to bring it in to thaw out before I could fill it. Duh, I feed the birds in the winter! I'll try not locking the lid down but the roof is so lightweight that I fear that it might blow away. I'm being generous with 3 stars.Date published: 2016-12-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good Squirrel Baffle Large diameter protects the feeder. I also like the hooks above and below. I bought a different baffle a few years ago that had a hole in the top for hanging the feeder and it just let water through and let the food get wet. This is much better.Date published: 2016-12-21Rated 4 out of 5 by Tensas from Love it! This was my first purchase and I am so glad I found birdfeeders! I have searched for a feeder that the pesky squirrels cannot figure out I hit a home run with this one, it's comical to watch them try. I mounted the feeder on a pole in an open space inside yard. All the compliments is just an added bonus. Great customer service and fast delivery has caused me to order three more feeders in different styles!Date published: 2016-12-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Charce from Really works. No squirrels This feeder is built to last, and it keeps squirrels from feasting on your bird seed.Date published: 2016-11-22Rated 1 out of 5 by Licensepro 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 feederDate published: 2016-09-23
