Rated 1.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)



The YF03 is a Complete Motor Replacement Unit for upgrading the original version of the Yankee Flipper, using your existing metal cap w/bail wire, tube, bail rod, and 4 tube screws. This current version of the Yankee Flipper allows for easy removal of the base for charging which will still allow birds to eat by fluttering or clinging to the upper portion of the feeder. This unit can also be used as a backup when your first unit is charging for continuous squirrel flipping fun!

  • Consists of a new Port, Silo Assembly, Power Stick, Base Assembly, Spring, Friction Disk, Perch Ring, Hub, Lock Washer, Nut, and an AC/DC Adapter (charger).
  • Attaches easily to your existing tube via four tube screws from your original feeder.
  • The Power Stick, which consists of the batteries, motor and gear box, is shipped with a slight charge for testing purposes.
  • Disassembles for easy cleaning and part replacement.
  • Compatible with both Yankee Flipper versions (considered an upgrade for Flipper feeders 2003 and older).

Feeding wild birds is one of the best ways to impact the world around you. The simple act of putting out a bird feeder and keeping it clean and full can greatly improve the chances that birds and their offspring will survive. Many backyard bird watchers believe that birds only benefit from feeders during certain times of the year. However, birds actually have a year-round need for reliable, steady food sources.

Placement to deter squirrels: The key to keeping a feeder squirrel-proof successful is the placement. Place a bird feeder 4 feet from the ground and 8 feet from anything a squirrel can jump from. For hanging from a pole by a hook it is recommended that the hook have at least a 16” distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole or having a caged feeder will also help to ensure squirrel-proof success.

Cleaning: Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush to brush away grime inside the tube.

    This arrived defective. It spins continuously until the battery dies. This caused a giant mess, plus a lot of wasted bird food. I tried recharging several times, only to have it spin until dead. The company will not consider a replacement without a video, which I have sent. Meanwhile, it is peak feeding season & I am left without my main feeder.
