Welcome a wide range of wild birds to your yard with this Perky-Pet® Squirrel Stumper™Wild Bird Feeder. This feeder attracts both clinging and perching birds--everything from cardinals, chickadees, finches, and grosbeaks to jays, nuthatches, tufted titmice, and woodpeckers. Combining rustic charm with useful functionality, this hanging bird feeder makes a lovely addition to any personal collection or a thoughtful housewarming or holiday gift idea for the bird lover on your list.
This Squirrel Stumper™ wild bird feeder features a squirrel-resistant metal cage that helps prevent squirrel damage, so the feeder lasts longer. The feeder's metal cage also helps deter squirrels from raiding the seed ports, while its twist lock top not only allows for quick, easy filling, but also makes it possible to lock the lid in place, helping to prevent squirrels from accessing the seed through the top.
Easy to Fill and Use
This bird feeder holds up to 3 pounds of black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, a fruit/nut combo, or mixed seed. After filling the feeder, simply hang it in the yard, and watch as your feathered friends fly in to feast. The clear plastic seed compartment offers at-a-glance convenience when checking seed levels. With eight seed-dispensing ports, you can enjoy watching the beautiful birds feeding from almost any angle.
This Squirrel Stumper™ wild bird feeder's hanging metal loop allows for sturdy 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
Keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure 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.

Squirrels jump off when caught dining from feederI can echo the comments made in the other reviews regarding this feeder. Squirrels are not in the least bit stumped by this design, in fact, they seem to rather enjoy the ability to hang from the feeder, thereby freeing the front paws for holding sunflower seeds and feasting until their bellies are full. They seem to know they are not supposed to be on the feeder and immediately jump off when I open a door or window. It has becomes a game to them and come right back the moment the window/door is closed. The feeder after just a few months has begun to rust. The top is poorly designed and easily bends while trying to replace it after adding more feed. In summary, it was a cheap feeder and I got what I paid for, with the bonus of feeding both birds and squirrels.

SQUIRRELS LOVE IT!Birds used it until squirrels took over. The wire grid is perfect for squirrel feet, and they empty it in a few hours.

Squirrel Stumper?? It Didn't Stump my Squirrels!!Listen, it took my squirrels about an hour to figure out how to open the top of the seed container. It DOESN'T lock!! I ended up putting strapping tape over it to hold it in place for 2 days before they chewed through it. This feeder is poorly designed. The squirrels can hang every which way and get seeds from any of the eight feeding stations they choose. But, the worst problem is that while the squirrels are ransacking the feeder, all of my birds are kept away from it. After three days of frustration, i took this feeder down and replaced it with my old one. No, I wouldn't recommend this feeder unless you want to feed the squirrels. It should be advertised as a squirrel feeder to be more accurate.

They should call it the "Squirrel Scaffold"Only the dumbest squirrel would be stumped by this feeder. The grid was perfect for a squirrel, sometimes two at a time, to comfortably climb, hang and gorge themselves at any angle. The large capacity tube added to the convenience of a giant feast.

Bottom Rusting OutI bought this feeder a year ago. It clogs up easily. The bottom is rusting out. The top does not fit back on easily after filling. The design should be changed to be the same as your model 102.

Does what it should.The only problem I have with it is the birds roost above the baffle and leave their pooh to be seen from below or above and regular rain does not wash it away.

Keep the lid onI've had this feeder for several months. Both birds and squirrels eat from it. I recently noticed that the lid had come off. My best guess is that the squirrels probably knocked it off with all their weight. Anyways, my mistake was not to immediately reattach it. I was horrified to discover two days later that a dove was stuck inside. The bird had no room to move and the feeder had to be disassembled to remove it. I am very sad as I never expected this could happen. My advice is if you buy it, keep it filled and keep the lid on at all times. It's a good price, but it is not squirrel proof.
