Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® III Wild Bird Feeder

Turn your yard into a bird feeding oasis with this Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone III Wild Bird Feeder. It attracts 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 three durable plastic seed chambers, attractive metal caging with a powder-coated rustic brown finish, and ornamental leaves that are more than just decorative.

This feeder's innovative weight-activated exterior cage wraps protectively around the seed compartments. When a squirrel climbs onto the cage, the spring-loaded exterior cage drops down, throwing the squirrel off balance and lowering the ornamental leaves on the cage down into position where they effectively act as a barrier, covering the seed ports and preventing squirrels from pillaging the seed supply. Easy-to-access settings allow for adjusting the cage's spring tension as necessary.

This feeder's nine seed ports nicely dispense bird seed, while its bird-preferred, U-shaped metal perches allow birds to comfortably perch and feed. The bird's weight won't lower the cage, but when a squirrel climbs on, down it goes.

Easy to Fill and Use

This innovative Squirrel-Be-Gone III 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 black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, or mixed seed. Use the same seed in all three chambers or add a different kind to each chamber to attract an even greater variety of birds. After filling the bird feeder, simply hang it in the yard, and watch as your feathered friends swoop in to celebrate.

Suggested Placement

This wild bird feeder comes with a wire loop 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

The clear, plastic seed compartments make it easy to monitor seed levels at a glance. 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:

  • 9 seed-dispensing ports
  • Comfortable U-shaped perches
  • Fresh seed continuously

You'll love:

  • Weight-activated squirrel technology
  • Powder-coated rustic brown finish
  • No assembly required
  • Pure enjoyment and relaxation watching wild birds feeding

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Similar Issue Like other reviews, I have had a problem with squirrels hanging upside down on the feeder and chewing the seed ports until they fall out (along with all the seed). Metal replacement seed tubes are not available, but Customer Service graciously offered to send a new feeder (arrived in 2 days). I will attempt to modify the seed ports by securing metal washers. Results to follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features I bought this a month ago and so happy that I did. No more squirrels! yaaayy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far it has stopped the squirrels. The baffle is a necessary part of the feeder and it is suppended at a distance from the feeder that the squirrles can not reach the top of the feeder. A very good deturent. Thanks Jack Miller.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good until the squirrels pulled out the springs This worked well for about a week and then the squirrels got to the springs, which are not actually hidden that well, and eventually pulled all of them out, stretching them so bad that there was no way I could get them back in and working again. Too bad there isn't a way that the manufacturer could put those springs behind metal or maybe inside a metal rod to keep the squirrels out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Squirrel-proof Feeder EVER!! My daughter bought me one for Mother's Day and now all our luxury bird food is going to the birds and not the squirrels. I wish they made one with a round tray so our Cardinals could eat from it. Cardinals do not perch and eat on this type of feeder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful feeder and the birds love it too! We purchased this feeder because it held more than the feeders we have been using. We thought we could fill it less often. We are thrilled to be filling just as often because we are getting more birds. The birds LOVE hanging onto the wire on the sides. All 9 stations have birds at them almost all the time. The finish is gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought three of these and gave one to a friend. Since then a bear took one out of my yard and a bear took one out of her yard. The product was great and I plan on replacing them but they're not bear proof!

Need replace clear plastic inserts .  Possible?

Asked by: Naomi
Replacement reservoirs are available on our website. They are model# 337TUBE-R.
Answered by: Consumer Relations
Date published: 2016-06-01

I have the replacement springs, but I am not sure how to assemble the tubes and cage. A small square on one side  seems like it would restrict motion. Also, one of the springs is much smaller than the other two. Does it have a different function?

Asked by: John2843
The replacement springs for this feeder should all be the same length. If one spring is shorter, then these are likely the replacement springs for our 336 feeder. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance with assembling this feeder.
