Backyard bird watching can be a soothing morning activity, but if you find your bird feeders are constantly raided by squirrels, this squirrel-proof bird feeder offers an easy solution that will bring the birds back to your yard.

How It Works

This Droll Yankees bird feeder will keep squirrels at bay with an innovative design. The motorized perch ring is designed to start spinning under the weight of a squirrel to “flip” the squirrel off the bird feeder, but it won’t scare birds away.

Durable and High Capacity

This bird feeder isn’t just squirrel-proof, it’s also all-weather friendly. The heavy-duty metal base and cap are designed to withstand the elements, and the seed tube is UV-stabilized to prevent fading. Each feeder has four feeding ports so you can attract multiple birds at once and holds up to five pounds of bird seed so you won’t constantly need to refill.

Why Customers Love It

With over 1,200 Amazon reviews and an average rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, Amazon customers are definitely satisfied with this squirrel-proof bird feeder. Customers noticed that squirrels were immediately rejected from the feeder, and they also saw an increase in birds. One customer loved that the feeding tube was large enough for different kinds of food including sunflower seeds so they could attract larger birds and a wider variety to their yard.

Store furniture indoors during winter months to prevent additional weathering and staining — and to make your routine cleanings easier.

Keeping your dog from running into the street or getting lost after leaving your yard are major concerns for pet owners, but building a fence isn’t always simple. Neighborhood codes may specify certain types of fences, and costs can be prohibitive. Electric fences can pose their own problems, since most models need to be buried under the perimeter of the yard.
