The anti-squirrel technology of this squirrel proof bird feeder makes this one of the best on the market. Birds eat from 8 ports. Includes FREE 23” metal hook.

How does this squirrel proof bird feeder work? Its feeding ports have sturdy metal perches that allow birds to feed comfortably, but when the squirrels perch on them, their weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and their access to the seed.
Remember to clean your squirrel proof bird feeder once every two weeks with a mild soap and water solution.
The elegant, sturdy metal hook is perfect for hanging bird feeders, planters, or other containers or products.

We bought this feeder for our lakehouse. We have had hours of enjoyment watching a variety of birds come to feed. We have also had fun watching our many squirrels come and hang off the tree and eat our bird seed. We have our feeder hanging from a plant hanger hook mounted to a tree trunk. The squirrels hang out from the side of the tree trunk and eat the seed without any problem. We enjoy watching all of our critters eat.

Okay, so I am a reformed skeptic! This feeder has provided me with more entertainment value than any backyard addition! Squirrels cannot get seed! And they fall like leaves after trying! My birds are eating - the fat squirrels are loosing weight! I t's been a week - and I really need to set up a web cam to watch the invasion attempts from the little rodents!

Reviewer: backyard birder
The squirrels in our yard have a party with this feeder. They just have to jump on it and start shaking - before you know it the feeder is empty of seed. I suggest you make this feeder adaptable to being mounted onto a pole, that way the feeder would be secure and the squirrels wouldn't be able to get the memento to get it shaking and spilling. For now, this feeder is in storage much to my disappointment. RESPONSE FROM AVANT GARDEN DECOR July 19, 2012 Thank you for your online review, we value your feedback. As you have experienced protecting your birdfeeder from squirrels can be an endless battle for many backyard birdfeeders like yourself. Using a spring loaded feeders like the Birdscapes® Squirrel-Be-Gone I™ (model 2B350) is a great way to prevent squirrels from gaining access to the seed inside. We appreciate your suggestion to make pole mounting an option for this feeder. In the meantime to avoid these pests from accessing your feeder often times a more holistic approach is needed. Try hanging your feeder 10 feet from the nearest squirrel launching site and at least 5 feet off of the ground. We hope you found these tips helpful. Regarding the hanging cord, this cord should not have worn down this quickly. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-323-5800 and we are happy to assist you in resolving this problem.

Squirrels ruleFebruary 16, 2012
This is a very attractive feeder and the birds love it, but the squirrels are able to empty in in a matter of hours. Also, the paint started to peel within a year of purchase.Back to the drawing board...

Disappointed again!June 05, 2012
Paid $61 bucks for two feeders on sale through this web site and the squirrels are eating just as well as before with normal feeders. I've readjusted this over and over and it's as tight as it can be.. basically.. he's eating out of the feeder where the birds are eating. The weight is not moving the outside down enough to cover the very large holes and well.. not very happy after debating this purchase for a long time. They're hanging way out on a limb on the hooks that came so it's not easy to get on the feeder but squirrels are pretty smart. My husband has lost all faith in these feeders saying the only thing to outsmart a squirrel is inhumane! Wish I could find ONE feeder that actually worked! Not sure I dare purchase another one because they're way over priced and do not deliver the promise they claim to make! RESPONSE FROM AVANT GARDEN DECOR June 08, 2012 Thank you for your review! We are sorry that squirrels have been able to access the seed in your feeder. From your description it sounds like there must be a quality issue with the spring mechanism of your feeder. This feeder is designed and tested against the weight of a squirrel and the ports are intended to completely close in order to block their access. Your experience has been shared with our product developers. Above all else, we want you and the birds to be happy with our birdfeeders. We are happy to see you were able to work with our Consumer Relations Team in resolving this problem. If you have questions or need assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-800-323-5800.

not worth itMarch 28, 2012
Very disapointed the squirrels figured out how to get the birdfood in 5 mins. Plus after 4 months of use the lid broke so now I cant use it.

Squirrels are smarter than your engineersOctober 18, 2011
Much like the people from Texas, our Illinois squirrels know their way around "squirrel-proof" feeders. Not only did they move the lid sideways in a matter of minutes but they also managed to hang just right so they could scoop the seed out of the holes. Very disappointed for $50. Squirrels win again! RESPONSE FROM AVANT GARDEN DECOR October 20, 2011 Thank you for reviewing the Birdscapes® Squirrel-Be-Gone I™ Feeder (model #2B350). Keeping squirrels from stealing bird seed is a constant battle for many backyard bird feeders. There are few additional things you can to keep the squirrels at bay. Providing squirrels with their own food source away from your feeders is one way. Feeder placement is another option. Place your feeder on a pole that is 10 feet away from the nearest tree, fence or launching place and 5 feet above the ground.We hope you have found this information to be helpful.

Nature will find a wayMay 31, 2011
I purchased your squirrel-proof birdfeeder. But someone forgot to tell the squirrels it was squirrel-proof. With-in 5 minutes of hanging it up, a squirrel was able to move the top cap over to the side and had access to the seed. I tried to secure the cap but it wouldn't get any tighter. Maybe a redesign for a more secure cap would help. Or these Texas Squirrels are smarter than we think.
