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.
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.
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.

Ideally a sheltered southeastern exposure location is best for hanging bird feeders since birds like to feed in the sun and out of the wind. Birds also prefer not to have any obstructions over their feeding area so they can see any predators. more»

Squirrel be gone but not the chipmunksSo far the squirrels haven't gotten into the bird feeder but the springs are a little to stiff to keep the chipmunks out. I also have to revise my pole because the deer are also eating the bird food.

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.

One modification has changed EVERYTHING.......This is one of the more ingenious bird feeder designs but due to a couple of shortcomings, I've gone through 4 of them in the last two years....until now. As a previous poster mentioned, the springs and internal cups are prone to breakage/destruction. There is a very simple solution to this that the manufacturer can easily incorporate. I purchased some thin walled tubing, cut them to length, tack welded them to the inside of the cage and slipped the springs through those. Now the springs are completely encased, preventing them from being destroyed and thereby never allowing the squirrels access to the internal cups. So far it's worked like a champ. The only other improvement I would recommend would be to make the feed housing and cups from glass for a truly squirrel proof feeder that would last for years and years. It would certainly be worth the increase in price. RESPONSE FROM PERKY-PET APRIL 26, 2014 Dear Eric, Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding this squirrel resistant feeder. We appreciate your suggestions on how to modify this feeder to better protect the springs from damage. We have forwarded your comments to our Product Development Team for review.

squirrel baffler useThis is a great product! I use it to cover the top of my chicken feeder, it keeps out rain and stops the chickens from trying to roost on top of the feeder. I used some shower caulking to plug the holes on top of the baffle hub and haven't had any leaks or water damage to my feed in over a year. It has also slowed down the rats getting at the feed, extra bonus!

Amazon Review, have used many yearsThis unit works well for me. After about five years the sun degrades the plastic but that is to be expected. Also the springs rusted after a couple of years. I replaced them with mini bungi cords and they worked fine. Really keeps the squirrels away from the food.

finches and chickadees tooThere are 3 sections to this feeder for seed. I think one section should have feeder tubes with small slits for the finches and chickadees that eat niger seed.
