Save money on seed with a squirrel proof Yankee Tipper Bird Feeder!

  • The Yankee Tipper’s 9″ diameter weight-sensitive feeding tray attracts ground feeding birds, but tips under the weight of a grey squirrel
  • Can hold the weight of up to four cardinals (about 8 oz.)
  • The large tray also collects fallen seed and serves as a platform that allows multiple birds to feed simultaneously from the four seed ports.
  • The heavy metal cap fits snugly on the tube to prevent squirrels from lifting it to reach the seed.
  • The Tipper looks stunning in any yard, with a metal top and base powder coated in Midnight Black
  • The 4-3/4″ x 17″ clear feeder tube makes the seed visible to the birds, a proven advantage. Made of UV Stabilized Polycarbonate, it ensures long lasting durability without yellowing. Its length and girth are designed to prevent squirrels from reaching the seed ports.
  • With a large 5 lb. capacity, you don’t need to refill your feeder every day
  • An internal baffle design keeps seed flowing freely to the ports.
  • Hang the Tipper securely from its heavy duty signature looped stainless steel wire, which reduces motion.
  • Components made in the U.S.A. and in Taiwan
  • Lifetime Warranty against squirrel damage

The clever Yankee Tipper Bird Feeder is a member of the Yankee Family of squirrel-proof feeders from Droll Yankees.

The Tipper has a 10″ weight sensitive feeding tray that collapses under the weight of squirrels and saves your bird seed. The feeder is comprised of a 17″ long clear, UV stabilized tube and heavy duty metal components that hold up to the elements and resist squirrel damage. The 5 pound capacity feed tube is protected on top by the tightly fitting metal cap that cannot be lifted by invasive squirrels.  The cap and base are powder coated in a striking Midnight Black that compliments any backyard and will not chip or fade with use.  Backed by Droll Yankees Lifetime Warranty against squirrel damage.

Birds that use this feeder: Bluebirds, Cardinals, Chickadees, Finches, Goldfinches, Grosbeaks, Juncos, Kinglets, Nuthatches, Redpolls, Siskins, Sparrows, Tanagers, Thrushes, Titmice, Towhees, Warblers, Waxwings, Woodpeckers and Wrens

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.

Feeding Sunflower Seeds: A favorite of almost every backyard feeder bird. They have easy to crack, thin shells and can be offered in a wide variety of feeder types, like platform, tube, and hopper feeders. These seeds also have a high fat content that is perfect for giving birds energy all year long, especially in winter.

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.

    Awesome Bird feeder that last and last. We have two of them, what is nice you can replace the parts instead of throwing the feeder away and buying a new one.

    I have had my Yankee Tipper for 10 or 15 years and have not had any problems with it. About every 5 years I take it down and clean it, It is weather proof, your seed will not get damp. I use hulled sunflower seed in mine and have had about every bird in North America eat at my place. I am going to need a new tube someday mine is getting a little yellow from the sun which is to be expected. I have only seen 1 squirrel try to attack my feeder and he lost his balance on the flipper thinking it was fixed. I guess word got around in the squirrel community as they leave my feeder alone. This is a great feeder it is well designed and made of good hardware.

    Recently purchased the “Tipper” because of several squirrel attacks on one of my standard bird feeder. Can’t wait to see it in action. I purchased this feeder because of its quality material and very large seed capacity. Very easy to assemble.

    I love this feeder! I had bought some other Droll Yankee Suirrel proof feeders but noticed cardinals never came. A wise birder friend told me they need to eat on a try. The squirrels were devouring my seed as soon as I put it out on trays. This has been wonderful. The cardinals love it and it is hilarious to see squirrels try to eat from it. Love it!

    Love this bird feeder. The top is very scratched from the squirrels trying to pry it open. And they stand on the rail and try to get on it from the bottom. But they can’t. However, one squirrel accidentally slid down it once and figured out that a few seeds landed on the deck rail. I watched him repeat this a half dozen times. The few seeds were well worth the show.

    Is everything it is advertised to be. Tree rats learn so fast that I simply noticed that there were no more on the deck from which it was hanging and wondered where they went. One or two strangers did come into our yard and would study the Tipper for a while then leave. Loved the one try to wrap his tail around the top of the hanger only to discover that he was a few inches too short to reach the tube holes. Enjoyed my friends Yankee Flipper almost as much but there too the squirrels simply stopped coming. If I could only figure our how to put an electric fence around the area to keep our the raccoons I would be set. They just tear it off the stand and eat on the ground!! A few years before one did enough damage that I had to buy a new tube which is an indicator of how sturdy these are.
