Turn your garden into a bird-feeding oasis with this Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone III Wild Bird Feeder. Best of all, this wild bird feeder provides an optimal feeding station for birds--without catering to those sneaky squirrels.
A charming addition to any outdoor space, this beautiful feeder features three durable plastic seed chambers, attractive metal caging with a powder-coated rustic brown finish, and ornamental leaves that are more than just decorative.
This feeder's innovative weight-activated exterior cage wraps protectively around the seed compartments. When a squirrel climbs onto the cage, the spring-loaded exterior cage drops down, throwing the squirrel off balance and lowering the ornamental leaves on the cage down into position where they effectively act as a barrier, covering the seed ports and preventing squirrels from pillaging the seed supply. Easy-to-access settings allow for adjusting the cage's spring tension as necessary.
This feeder's nine seed ports nicely dispense birdseed, while its bird-preferred, U-shaped metal perches allow birds to comfortably perch and feed. The bird's weight won't lower the cage, but when a squirrel climbs on, down it goes.
Easy to Fill and Use
This innovative Squirrel-Be-Gone III wild bird feeder comes fully assembled and makes a lovely addition to any personal collection or a thoughtful gift idea. This feeder holds up to 3.62 kg (8 lb.) of black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, or mixed seed. Use the same seed in all three chambers or add a different kind to each chamber to attract an even greater variety of birds. After filling the bird feeder, simply hang it in the garden, and watch as your feathered friends swoop in to celebrate.
This wild bird feeder comes with a wire loop for hanging near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area. Choose a location that not only provides a great view, but that is also bird friendly. Birds prefer an open space, so they can easily move from one feeding port to the next. They also like to be in a location that gets both sun and partial shade during the day. An ideal location will be between 1.52 m and 2.44 m (5 and 8 feet) off the ground and within 4.57 m (15 feet) of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.
Cleaning the Feeder
The clear, plastic seed compartments make it easy to monitor seed levels at a glance. Be sure to keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure happy birds and return visits. Perky-Pet recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mould and cleaning it every few weeks with a mild soap and water solution.
