Squirrels have a way of ransacking a bird feeder, dumping all the feed onto the ground and making a mess of things.

Hang or Pole Mount
This transparent 16-inch squirrel baffler can be hung or pole mounted. When hanging the baffler, it blocks squirrels from above. The included hooks have the strength to hold up to 50 pounds. The top hook attaches the baffler to a tree limb or other hanging location, while the bird feeder hangs from the second hook located underneath the baffler. Most squirrels will descend the wire to the baffler and give up. A more persistent squirrel may put its weight on the baffler in efforts to access the bird feeder below, but after climbing onto the baffler, it will quickly tilt, sending the squirrel down to the ground (startled maybe, but uninjured). The hanging baffler has the added benefit of partially protecting bird seed from rain and tree debris.
When placed on bird feeder poles, this baffler prevents squirrels from gaining access to the bird feeder from below. Squirrels may try to climb up to the feeder, but they won't be able to get around the baffler. To pole mount this baffler, simply lower it over the top of the pole and screw it into place. About a foot below the feeder works best. Everything needed for either hanging or pole mounting comes included: a 16-inch-diameter transparent shield and all hardware (2 hooks, 1 baffle hub, and 3 screws).

Yesterday it broke and I am buying this same feeder from PerkyPet. It really works well. It attracts lots of birds, mostly small birds. It is made of metal so it is durable. It works keeping the squirrels away. One day I saw a squirrel jump on top of it and immediately the cage pushed itself down [spring-action unit] and closed off the feeding openings. The squirrel immediately jumped off of it. It is lightweight, easy to fill. I love it.Date published: 2016-07-23Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky Lynn from Awesome Feeder I had had it with wooden feeders. The squirrels demolished them. I ordered this feeder and I love it. Yes the squirrels tried to get in it. But no success! No more old black birds and few blue jays, they run off the other birds. I am now getting more smaller birds. And what else I love the feeder holds 8lbs. I think by this winter I will order another one.Date published: 2016-07-20Rated 5 out of 5 by JoJo37 from Gorgeous! I got this for my father as a gift and he said it was too pretty to put outside!Date published: 2016-07-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Tf97 from Works great I have four of these feeders throughout the yard. The squirrels don't bother trying to feed from themDate published: 2016-07-09Rated 2 out of 5 by Mike2158 from Temporarily squirrel proof After a couple of weeks my squirrels learned to chew through the plastic to get to the seed while feeder was in the down position. A disappointment.Date published: 2016-07-06Rated 5 out of 5 by AM109 from Great features Love it. Birds like the perch and big capacity. It is squirrel proof. Tight roof and closes upon heavy weight. And so pretty. Looks like a real house.Date published: 2016-07-06Rated 1 out of 5 by JDfromChesterland from Cheap hardware makes it a bad idea to buy Good concept, but the product failed because the hardware is cheap plastic that doesn't hold a 20-lb bird feeder. I bought four of these, one for each birdhouse. Three of them fell to the ground. It broke one expensive bird feeder. The company should invest in metal hardware.Date published: 2016-07-03Rated 3 out of 5 by The Mathemagician 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.Date published: 2016-06-30

We were given an old feeder by a friend. It has about 2 inches of dried up old bird seed at the bottom of the feeder. It won't break up and it doesn't seem like the bottom comes off the feeder. What is the easiest most efficient way to clean this?We recommend soaking the feeder in warm water and mild soap to help soften and break up the bird seed.Date published: 2016-06-15
