These are excellent bird feeders with the added benefit of being squirrel
proof. Openings in the feeders align with ports, giving birds access to
the feed inside. When a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, its weight forces
a shroud down, making the feed ports inaccessible. Squirrels* are foiled
but not harmed in any way.
The Finch feeder, 20" tall with a 1.4-quart capacity, has
a wire-mesh shroud, four perches and eight ports sized for smaller seeds
such as niger and thistle.
The 3/4-quart Peanut+ version is 18" tall and holds shelled
peanuts or similarly sized suet pellets, allowing you to establish a separate
feeding area for species such as woodpeckers, jays and nuthatches. It
has a wire-mesh shroud with five large openings. The internal seed hopper
is also wire mesh to let birds peck at the contents without allowing whole
nuts to spill out.
The two models of songbird feeders are suitable for sunflower-seed mix.
The 1.4 quart Classic songbird feeder is 19-1/2" tall, with
four large ports and perches, plus a wire-mesh shroud that gives perchers
and clingers ample room to feed. The larger 3-quart Plus songbird
feeder is 23" tall, with six length-adjustable perches and a ring perch
to accommodate cardinals.
The Peanut+ and Plus models have a weight threshold that can be adjusted
to keep out heavier birds. All feeders are rustproof, UV stable and easy
to clean. Instructions included.
For mounting a Squirrel Buster Plus™ feeder where there is no overhead support for hanging, an adapter is available that fits onto any 1" diameter pole (not included). The adapter has a three-pronged design that fits through holes in the bottom of the feeder, and includes a retrofit ring that attaches to the perch to prevent squirrels from reaching into the feeder from below.
* Effective against black squirrels. Immature red squirrels can sometimes
gain access due to their size.
