Perky-Pet® Squirrel Stumper™
Bring Beautiful Birds to Your Backyard
Welcome a wide range of wild birds to your yard with this Perky-Pet® Squirrel Stumper®. This feeder attracts both clinging and perching birds--everything from cardinals, chickadees, finches, and grosbeaks to jays, nuthatches, tufted titmice, and woodpeckers. Combining rustic charm with useful functionality, this hanging bird feeder makes a lovely addition to any personal collection or a thoughtful housewarming or holiday gift idea for the bird lover on your list.
This Squirrel Stumper® wild bird feeder features a squirrel-resistant metal cage that helps prevent squirrel damage, so the feeder lasts longer. The feeder's metal cage also helps deter squirrels from raiding the seed ports, while its twist lock top not only allows for quick, easy filling, but also makes it possible to lock the lid in place, helping to prevent squirrels from accessing the seed through the top.
Easy to Fill and Use
This bird feeder holds up to 3 pounds of black oil sunflower seed, peanuts, a fruit/nut combo, or mixed seed. After filling the feeder, simply hang it in the yard, and watch as your feathered friends fly in to feast. The clear plastic seed compartment offers at-a-glance convenience when checking seed levels. With eight seed-dispensing ports, you can enjoy watching the beautiful birds feeding from almost any angle.
This Squirrel Stumper™ wild bird feeder's hanging metal loop allows for sturdy hanging near a back deck, porch, patio, or a window overlooking a garden or landscaped area in your yard. 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 5 and 8 feet off the ground and within 15 feet of nearby coverage, like bushes and shrubs, so birds feel safe and protected from predators.
Cleaning the Feeder
Keep this bird feeder clean and filled with fresh seed to ensure return visits. Perky-Pet® recommends checking this bird feeder once a week for insects or mold and cleaning it every few weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

Review Ratedidn't work
Didn't stump my squirrels...they simply took the top off and reached in.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear of this experience! While the feeder includes a squirrel-resistant design, placement is also key when deterring the squirrels. The feeder should be kept at least 12 feet away from launching points (such as a tree, fence, deck, large bush..etc) and four feet off the ground. Installing a squirrel baffler above or below the feeder will also work well to deter the squirrels(when placed in the proper position).

Review RateClogs and challenging for birds
This clogs. The center tube is two pieces. The top tube fits inside the bottom tube. Rain runs down and seeps into crevice between the tubes. One continuous tube or having the bottom tube inserted inside the top tube would help to keep the water out. Birds were also challenged to grip the wire and to get their beaks into the feeding ports.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry to hear of this experience and have shared these comments with our Product Managers. This information is very helpful to us!
It is important to remember to clean the feeder at least once every two weeks. This ensures the seed stays fresh and the feeder remains inviting. Our feeders are covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the purchase receipt. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) for additional assistance.
Review RateBest Feeder Ever!
Love these bird feeders. Hold a great amount of seed and love the easy come apart clean feature. Have larger ones hanging on poles with raccoon baffles.
Review RateGreat feeders.
Buy a feeder pole with a raccoon baffle and you won't have any more problems. We have 4 feeders like these on two different poles with suet feeders and no squirrels can get to them. They are great and last for a long time.
Review RateSquirrel NOT STUMPED
Our experience is the the same as others. Within a half hour of putting up this feeder, we watched as a squirrel walked down the branch we hung the feeder on, turn herself upside-down, and eat to her heart's content. We are returning this feeder immediately, and buying one where the weight of the squirrel closes access to the feed.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear that the feeder was not what you were looking for. The wire cage is designed to prevent damage to the feeder from squirrels, but will not prevent access to the feeding ports.

Review RateLid can be removed by a smart squirrel
Great....but the lid WAS removed by a smart squirrel.
Review RateBirdfeederLove the birdfeeder, that's why I bought 3!!
Review Ratesquirrel stumperI bought this a week ago and our smart squirrels love it as all they have to do is hang on upside-down and eat. The birds can't get near it, so this should be called a squirrel feeder.Response From Perky-Pet®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeAt Perky-Pet®, we strive to produce feeders that will be difficult or impossible for squirrels to access, we apologize that this was not your experience.
In areas with high squirrel populations, a more holistic approach may be needed. Safflower seed is a good option for seed, as squirrels typically do not care for the flavor. To further help deter squirrels from stealing seed, we recommend hanging your feeder 10 feet from the nearest squirrel launching site and at least 5 feet off of the ground. .

Review Rateit\'s a gift so i haven\'t seen it in action but...one of the two feeders i purchased was broken, so i wrote the company with a photo of the defected product and they sent me a replacement promptly.Response From Perky-Pet®Kelly : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello,

Review RateSquirrel Stumper?? It Didn\'t Stump my Squirrels!!Listen, it took my squirrels about an hour to figure out how to open the top of the seed container. It DOESN'T lock!! I ended up putting strapping tape over it to hold it in place for 2 days before they chewed through it. This feeder is poorly designed. The squirrels can hang every which way and get seeds from any of the eight feeding stations they choose. But, the worst problem is that while the squirrels are ransacking the feeder, all of my birds are kept away from it. After three days of frustration, i took this feeder down and replaced it with my old one. No, I wouldn't recommend this feeder unless you want to feed the squirrels. It should be advertised as a squirrel feeder to be more accurate.Response From Perky-Pet®Michael : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for your recent Perky-Pet® review. It is recommended that the feeder be placed at least 8-10 feet away from any platforms the squirrels may use to jump to access. The feeder also features a twist lock cap. We apologize for this experience and would appreciate the opportunity to learn more about what occurred.
