Best used for:CardinalsChickadeesFinchesNuthatchesTitmicePerky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Country Style Bird Feeder Have fun watching everything from finches and blue jays to juncos and cardinals when you add this Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Country Style Bird Feeder to your yard. Its designed with weight-activated perches that keep squirrels and even larger problem birds like blackbirds from getting to the seed, but the real standout point for this feeder is its country home-style look. The cutout shapes let the seed show through the windows and doors, and the bright red color adds a classic touch to your outdoor decor.Squirrel Proof Design To offer defense against squirrels, this feeder boasts multiple great features. First, is the feeder’s weight-activated perch, which is calibrated to support the weight of birds but not squirrels. When squirrels try to gain access to the seed, the ports close off under their weight. The sensitivity can also be adjusted to keep out larger nuisance birds. In addition, the weathervane lid lock prevents squirrels from lifting the lid, while the metal frame discourages chewing.
To ensure a 100% squirrel proof feeder, placement is key! Hang the feeder with at least 18 inches of clearance on all sides so squirrels can’t easily reach the ports without activating the perch.
Depending on the species and age of squirrels in your area, you will want to experiment with different sensitivity settings. To increase tension, lower the adjustment pin. To decrease tension, raise the pin to a higher slot position.Durable and Versatile This Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Country Style Bird Feeder has an all-metal construction designed to stand up to the weather and squirrel invaders. The metal is powder-coated in a bright red eye-catching color and provides enhanced rust resistance and durability. This feeder can be hung from a hook or pole mounted on a 3/4" pole for versatile placement anywhere around your yard.Attractive, Rustic Style Birds and bird lovers alike can’t deny the charm of this delightful feeder. This unique feeder is styled after a country barn, complete with a bold red finish, galvanized metal roof, and windows. The roof-style lid is even topped with a traditional weathervane, which conveniently locks the lid in place.Easy to Clean Cleaning and filling is an effortless process thanks to the feeder’s convenient design. The removable roof and large opening make this feeder easy to fill with up to 8 lb capacity of black-oil sunflower seed, mixed seed, hulled sunflower seed, or safflower seed. Cleaning the feeder is also easy! We recommend cleaning the feeder at least every two weeks and regularly checking the seed to ensure it is free of insects and mold.Accessorize Your Seed Feeder When you’re feeding many birds, having the right accessories can make the experience that much more enjoyable.

Sure it looks good, but the birds won’t eat out of it. It’s worthless.Response From Perky-Pet®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
Birds are creatures of habit, and it can take time for them to use a new feeder. If ther are established feeders nearby, consider removing them until the birds are using this one. For more information, or assistance, please contact us directly at 855-737-5973.
Review RateStuck birds.
I like the feeder but we have now had two small birds get caught in the feeder bar. Luckily I have been home and were able to free them. Not sure how to stop it from happening again.Response From Perky-Pet®Rachel : Consumer Relations Representative
Oh no, we are so sorry to hear about this experience! The designs of our feeders are not intended to harm our feathered friends, and we will share this feedback with the Product Manager for further review. This feeder is backed by a 30 day return policy and 1 year replacement policy.
Review RateGreat feederI’ve watched squirrels try to get seed from this bird feeder and they just can’t. Perfect! Lots of birds are back and forth to the feeder. It holds a lot of seed. I’m really happy with this feeder ..... and it’s pleasing to look at.
Review RateGreat FeederVery sturdy feeder, holds a lot of seed so you don’t have to keep refilling all of the time. Birds of all types seem to enjoy it. I placed it on a pole so the squirrels cannot bother it. Cardinals use it all of the time so I’m unsure why some of the other reviews say they do not.
Review RateBirdfeederThe birds hate it. They won't come. Have tried to adjust bar for lighter birds, but still didn't work.Its pretty, but doesn't feed my birds, in which is all species in Texas
Review RateGreatMade our back yard look very nice. I think the squirrels are upset because they can’t get to the seeds. Very well built.
Review RateGreat feeder, but Cardinals can't figure this outThis is a great feeder, keeps the feed perfectly dry, and squirrels away. Squirrels gave up trying in just one day. However, cardinals can't figure out this feeder. It has been two weeks since I hung this feeder out, and I have removed all other established feeders from my backyard. Despite so many Cardinals in my backyard, they struggle to eat from this feeder. I have seen them fly around, but they don't land on the perch. It is quite disappointing to see that happening, and I don't know how to fix it.
Review RateBest Cardinal feeder everGreat Cardinal feeder! This is the most squirrel-proof feeder I've ever bought. Squirrels can not hang on the feeder and take the seed, so they stay on the ground and get the seed the cardinals knock out while eating. Its easy to refill, holds a week's worth of seed, and is very attractive. Mine is hung from a small tree in a rock-garden out in the open. Birds are leery of feeders hung near leaves where cats can hide, so hang it out in the open about 4 ft from the ground and enjoy the birds!
Review RateAsk the BirdsWhile the birdhouse looks very good, the birds do not like it. I have it hanging for over a week now and the birds shun it. Any suggestions?
Review RateBest squirrel-proof feeder ever.
Thank you Perky Pet for creating a truly squirrel-proof bird feeder. I live in Western PA, where there are a lot of squirrels and a lot of rain. The squirrels have learned (after about 2 months of trying) that they can not hang on the feeder and eat the seed. They haver learned the only seeds they can get are those that the birds knock down to the ground. I have hung the feeder from the branch of a Japanese maple tree...its on a 3ft long copper wire so that it is not close to any leaves because the birds are wary of cats hiding nearby and will stay away from feeders hung near any place a cat can hide. Its also about 4 ft from the ground, with only a rock garden beneath, covered with mulch...no place for a predator to hide...cardinals are very wary. Also, we get a lot of rain...my feeder is hung so the prevailing breeze hits the back of the feeder.
