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 5 out of 5 by from Solid and so far, good deterrent against squirrels Have only had my feeder up one week - so far so good on squirrel deterrent. Strongly advise hanging on a strong metal shepherd's hook type pole, away from things that squirrels can jump from. Also, use coconut oil or similar substance on the pole to keep the squirrels off. However, the lubricant will weaken and the critters will get on the feeder. Given the capacity, the feeder doesn't require frequent refilling - the avian critters love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My birds love it !! I really like this bird feeder but the squirrels have found a way to hang upside down on it and still eat the bird seed. But my birds love it !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bird feeder ever. Only issue with this feeder is the springs that hold the items that block the feeder holes when a squirrel gets on the feeder wear out over time. Takes a few years so it is expected. Excellent bird feeder

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 mixed bag I bought two of these feeders, you have to stay on top of the springs as they get stuck on the metal (due to persistent squirrel attacks) The system does a great job shutting out the squirrels from the opening where the seed is available, but with the weight of the squirrels hanging on the system they were still able to eat through the plastic at the very base and create their own permanent openings. Not a bad system but needs some work. I still have one hanging out back after one full year and it is holding up well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goodbye to squirrels We have an abundance of squirrels, when we first hung this feeder a couple tried to get to the food, but did not succeed. Now they don't even try
Date published: 2016-08-01
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.

Q&A

How do you put the top back on the feeder.337.  After filling with bird seed?

Asked by: Tippy
The lid and knob at the top can be untwisted from the feeder and removed as one piece. The lid would twist back on in the opposite direction it twisted off.

Need replace clear plastic inserts .  Possible?

Asked by: Naomi
Replacement reservoirs are available on our website. They are model# 337TUBE-R.

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.
