    Started construction of a feeding station & this was my feeder of choice. What a gem of design! Holds a good amount of seed. Clear weather guard and just the right gaged wire give the feeder an uncluttered look. Totally pleased with this purchase.

    I live in S.Florida and use this feeder for millet starting in late September when Painted Bunting arrive for the winter. They really like it. Keeps squirrel, Grackles, and Blue Jays out. One male Cardinal has figured it out. This is one nice feeder,worth the money. Mine is on a pole with squirrel guard.

    Feeder is great at keeping out large birds, but squirrels drop from above or lunge from nearby bushes and are able to open the cover of the feeder tube. More than once I have found a squirrel IN the tube. I found a way to address this, but spring clips on the bail handle to hold the lid down would probably be a lot easier.

    • Droll Yankees

      Hello Bruce,
      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. I am sorry that you’re having no success at all deterring squirrels from your feeders. Squirrels are so clever and relentless and it seems sometimes that they’re smarter than most other animals. One of the biggest challenges to feeding wild birds—our own challenge too—is deterring squirrels. We work on a daily basis to create quality products and cultivate good advice that will help us all win this fight.

      I can completely sympathize with your squirrel frustration. My goal is to help restore your faith in our products by offering you some squirrel-proof advice. The key to successfully keeping a feeder squirrel-proof is its placement. Squirrels are agile and are able to jump up to 8ft horizontally and 4ft vertically. For this reason, we recommend that feeders be placed 8ft away from any structures that they can climb on, so that they do not reach across to access the feeding holes. It can be helpful to trim back and prune any nearby bushes or branches within 12ft of a feeder. We also recommend that feeders be placed higher than 4ft off the ground, preventing the squirrels from jumping and grabbing onto the bottom. If you are using a hook or pole, we recommend that the hook have at least a 16in distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success.

      If you make sure to properly place any of our squirrel-proof feeders, I am confident that you will start having success in deterring the squirrels. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7:30am – 4:30pm (Mon-Thurs) & 7:30am – 2pm (Fri) EST. We hope this helps you get back to feeding birds and thwarting squirrels!

    Feeder is great at keeping out large birds,. Somewhat surprisingly the stainless steel washers on the bail handle prevent the squirrels from getting in the feeder tube. when they jump from trees overhead. I have the feeder on a post in a location which has allowed me to evade the black bears. I’ve also got a tray.squirrel baffle underneath to catch the seed that is dropped, and the cardinals and a few other birds enjoy that too.
