Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeders
In recent years, squirrel-proof feeders have gotten very good. Modern weight-sensitive models are extremely reliable at keeping out squirrels and are the simplest solution for protecting seed feeders. A spring mechanism allows light birds to feed, while shutting out heavier squirrels (even the lightest mammals are markedly heavier than a feeder’s worth of finches). You don’t have to worry about precision placement or purchasing extra hardware: you simply hang these feeders up and they work. Some models have an adjustable spring tension allowing feeders to also exclude the largest of birds such as pigeons or crows.
Fundamentals Squirrel-Proof Feeder
Our Fundamentals Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder is weight-sensitive, so when a squirrel gets on the feeder the feeding ports close, denying access to the seed. Birds can use the four perches, or they can cling to the metal shroud to feed. The patented Seed Tube Ventilation System™ that keeps seed dry and fresh is also included. It's easy to clean and has a two-year limited warranty including protection against squirrel damage.
Eliminator Squirrel-Proof Feeder
Protect your bird seed bounty from squirrels with our Eliminator™ bird feeder. When a squirrel touches the perch ring, its weight closes the seed ports, foiling its seed-stealing plot. The Eliminator's unique technology allows you to set the sensitivity level, so you can also exclude large birds such as pigeons or doves. It's easy to hang, holds three and a half quarts of seed and is backed with a limited lifetime guarantee. This feeder also features a special seed ventilation system that helps keep seed fresher. It's easy to hang, holds about three quarts of seed and is backed with a limited lifetime guarantee. The Eliminator can be disassembled and assembled with no tools, and all of its parts are top shelf dishwasher safe.
WBU Eliminator Weather Guard
This weather guard was specifically designed with the WBU Eliminator bird feeder in mind. It fits snugly over the feeding ports to keep the rain and snow out of your feeder and to keep seed drier.
In addition to weight-sensitive models, more traditional caged feeders can also be found. These feeders are good if you also want to exclude larger birds such as jays and starlings from your feeder. The cages do obstruct views to some degree and may exclude desired birds such as jays or larger woodpeckers. If you already have a Wild Birds Unlimited Quick-Clean feeder, you can add a cage to convert it to a squirrel-proof feeder.
