Setting up a bird feeder surrounded by a cage is one of the best certified ways to ensure that squirrels or other large birds stay at a distance. Setting up a bird feeder surrounded by a cage is one of the best certified ways to ensure that squirrels or other large birds stay at a distance. When a certain weight is applied to the perch, a wall or door is activated and the feeder is closed. It also has a negative handle tube that prevents squirrels from grabbing the wire hanger with their hind legs, which destroys the closing mechanism and hangs down next to the feeder.
This special feeder from Audubon holds approximately 1.25 lbs (. Because the pipe is 21" (53cm) long, it's long enough that squirrels can't hang down from the top to eat without activating the feeder and making it spin.
Is there really a squirrel-proof bird feeder?
Not always, and it's not good if birds accidentally get vasolin on their feathers, which would be difficult for them to remove. It has 3 settings so you can adjust the perches to fit small, medium or large birds. This provides you with a few options so you may be able to rule out starlings. When a squirrel puts its weight on the perch, the entire perch simply tilts forward and blocks the food openings. After setting up a feeder in cages in my fight against the rodents, I watched with interest how the squirrels attacked the problem.
With light, medium and heavy settings, the spring is adjustable and can be changed for small to large birds.
