Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® II Country Style Wild Bird Feeder

Turn your yard into a bird lovers' paradise with this Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone II Country Style Bird Feeder. Attract everything from cardinals, finches, flickers, and grackles to grosbeaks, jays, juncos, and kinglets--even sparrows, wrens, and woodpeckers. Best of all, this wild bird feeder provides an optimal feeding station for birds--without catering to those sneaky squirrels.

Sorry, Squirrels!

A charming addition to any outdoor space, this beautiful feeder features a weight-activated perch bar that closes to prevent squirrels from accessing the seed supply. Adjustable springs can be calibrated to accommodate different bird sizes and keep away nuisance birds as well as squirrels.

Easy to Fill and Use

This innovative Squirrel-Be-Gone II 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 8 pounds of mixed, black oil sunflower, hulled sunflower, or safflower seed. After filling the bird feeder, simply hang it in the yard or mount it to a post, and watch as your feathered friends fly in to feast.

Suggested Placement

This wild bird feeder comes with a metal hanger for 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

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 mold and cleaning it every few weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

Wild Birds love:

  • Wide seed-dispensing port
  • Comfortable perch
  • Fresh seed continuously

You'll love:

  • Weight-activated squirrel technology
  • Durable, all metal construction
  • Removable roof peak for easy filling
  • No assembly required
  • Pure enjoyment and relaxation watching wild birds feeding

squirrel-proof roof? By birdy

My issue is with the rotating metal T piece that holds the roof to the base. Twice now I have found the roof on the ground and the seed ruined by rain. I am trying a bungee cord around the unit to secure the roof. Any retrofits to solve this problem!

Cute and holds a lot but not practical. By Courtney

Pros: -Love the look -Squirrel proof (as long as your attach the roof all the way) -Holds a lot of seed so you don't need to constantly refill! Cons: -Not much room for the birds! I really don't know why this can't be two sided. It's just the one side with the one "bench". The other side is just metal. I wish they constructed this as two sided so no matter which way it faced the birds could eat! If it faces the window (so I can see the birds), the birds have to fly past the feeder and do a 180 in order to get to the seed, because the back of the feeder is facing the bushes. If it faces the bushes so the birds can get to it easier, I can't watch them. It would have been easy to make it two sided. Also, it really is a small space and birds are territorial, so usually only one or maybe two birds can feed at a time (as opposed to posted feeders).

Squirrels are having a feast By Brad

Not at all squirrel proof. My feeder is pole mounted with a squirrel baffle under it. The squirrels will jump the four feet up to the perch. They started getting to the seed by hanging from the roof after less than a day to get at the seed. Seeing the seed behind the window, they then gnawed the plastic tab from under one of the windows so that they can sit on the perch and empty the feeder of most of the seed. That happened after a couple of days. Would be a great feeder if you don't have squirrels.

Pretty but seed life issues By Grandma Sue

This beautiful feeder is a joy in most aspects, but I am beginning to believe the perfect feeder does not exist. This one holds a lot of seed but I wouldn't recommend fully filling it due to issues with moisture in the hot summer rains...no matter how I try to protect it, I am having a terrible time with seed getting caught in the feeder slots & even sprouting. Have only had the feeder 3 wks & yes, I do clean it often. Is there a dome cover large enough to help shield it from rain? As for deterring squirrels it does a pretty good job of making them slide off the roof. Regardless, mine has some deep gouges which I can hardly be from squirrels. Raccoon maybe...

Not squirrel proof at all By 21-foreva

DO NOT BUY THIS BIRD FEEDER! I GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS FROM MY HUSBAND! IT DOES NOT WORK! I watch the squirrels get in the dang feeder EVERY DANG DAY. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY! I'm really sad. I was skeptical that it would work and I followed the instructions. No matter where I move the tensioner, the squirrels just push the bar down and let up on the bar and feast away. I have pictures to send to your company. I'm going to try the motorized one I think that one will work. But not this one. I can't keep seed in it for the birds because all the squirrels know how to get in it. It was a waste of money to me.

Not exactly squirrel proof. I came out in the snow to check if it needed refilling & found the whole thing on the ground: the squirrels had TAKEN THE LID/ROOF OFF & climbed inside!!!

We love it. By Coleen

We received this country style bird feeder as a gift and couldn’t be happier with it. We live in a forest. Squirrels are not our friends. We have tried baffles, and all kinds of different (squirrel resistant) feeders. This one really works for us. We hung it on a shepherds hook attached to our deck. The squirrels jump to the lid, but when they try to stretch out to get to the bird seed, they slide off. We want to get another one when they are back in stock.

Cute but Disappointing By Tammy

I love the look of this bird feeder, however... it seems like something is missing on the mounting of it. We have never been able to figure out what is missing off of it and have given up on it. It sits on the pole all crooked and looks goofy. No birds, just squirrels. Such a disappointment. I was looking forward to feeding the birds.
