Review RatePoor quality, not squirrel proof.
Purchased this product through Amazon, received it on January 3, 2020. I am extremely disappointed as the squirrel that I was expecting it to deter has already chewed through three (3) of the plastic feeding station shields destroying them. My feeder will no longer hold bird seed. This plastic is way too cheap to be a match for a determined squirrel. This was a poor purchase due to inferior materials used in the construction of the bird feeder.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. We are very sorry to hear that the local squirrels have damaged your feeder in this manner. Our feeders are covered under a 30 day return policy and backed by a one year replacement policy. Please contact us directly at email@example.com for assistance.
Review Rateso far so good with the second one
This is my second one of this model. the first broke when a squirrel successfully pulled it down. I believe there is a design flaw in how the lid attaches to the body because when the first one broke, there was an almost one inch metal cap attached to the screw that must have come from inside the upper attachment piece. I really like the design but the leaves let the squirrel hold on and circle the feeder, thus loosening the lid. When this one fell, at lease I could reattach the lid and hanger.Response From WoodstreambrandsKathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate your feedback regarding this feeder's design and have shared your comments with our Product Managers. To increase your feeder's resistance to squirrels, we recommend hanging it at least 4 ft off the ground and 8 ft away from launching points. For more tips on how to get the most out of your feeder, or if you have any questions, please contact us directly at 855-737-5973.
Review Rateworks excellent (with modifications)
Have have had these bird feeders for many years now and only feed sunflower seeds. I have mine on a galvanized pipe, (a pipe screws into the base ) the smaller pipe slips inside the larger pipe for removal as we also have deer. First, grease the stationary pole with axle grease, second push all the metal leaves in tight so the squirrels cannot chew the plastic seed baffles when the frame has dropped down, third adjust the springs so that they drop when a squirrel is on the feeding rack. I have made an outer perimeter chicken wire "fence" that is installed on the feeder to keep out the pigeons. The sparrows and small birds can go through the holes. This is a circular piece of wood, a hole, drilled in the center same size as the cap nut. The wire is stapled on the rim of the 1/2 inch wood. Wire hangs down full length of the feeder. Outside diameter depend on what size birds you allow at the feeder. Base of the feeder is about 5 feet high due to deer. Red Wing Blackbirds can get in it but they don't like it due to the wire they would just as soon eat the fallen seed below with the squirrels. Although seasonal, Gross Beaks are notorious for sloshing the seed out of the feeder onto the ground. That's OK, that limits the amount of seed for the the squirrels, blackbirds, doves and quail. At the peak of the season, I need to fill this every 2-1/2 days. Every 3-1/2 days now (in February).
Review RateLove this feeder
Have been feeding birds for over 10yrs and this is the best bird feeder ever. Had the small version for apx 5 yrs so was very happy to find the large version. I have very aggressive squirrels that have destroyed many different styles of feeders but this manages to keep them out.
Review RateQuite ineffective except the squirrels in your area are low in intelligence
Within minutes of hanging the" squirrel be gone wild bird feeder, " it was raided by a squirrel which hung upside down on the feeder and had a feast. I have photos as evidence. I gave two stars only because the concept of a squirrel proof feeder is a good one and the feeder is reasonably attractive; however, this one is definitely quite ineffective. Perhaps the squirrels here are more intelligent than those used to test the effectiveness of the feeder.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this experience. We are sorry to learn that this occurred! If the squirrels have managed to get into the feeder so quickly, we recommend adjusting the springs to a lighter setting and ensuring that they are free moving when weight is applied. If this is still not deterring your local squirrels, the feeder is covered under a 30 day return policy.
Review RateCannot open
This is the first bird feeder that I have ever owned that I cannot open - the cap will not unscrew!Response From WoodstreambrandsJules : Consumer Relations Representative
Hi Sue! We are sorry to hear that this feeder is having trouble opening! Be sure that when you are opening it that you are twisting the entire lid, not just the top most section. Grab the overhanging portion of the lid and twist to open.

Review Rateplease offer metal replacement ports
This is a great feeder if only the seed ports could be made of metal. the squirrels can chew on and finally open them and pull the feeder sideways to let the seeds fall to the ground. then there are chipmunks that are not weighty enough to cause the openings to close so they also chew out the ports. fix them with hot glue but they can eat it away. I get many birds at the feeder, In fact I fill it every two days with 6 qts of sunflower seed. Cardinals, yellow finches, house finches, chick-a-dees and nuthatchs all come to eat.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for this feedback and suggestion. We have shared it with our Product Manger for review.
Review RatePositive experience with the Squirrel-Be-Gone wild bird feeder
I’ve tried many “squirrel resistant” bird feeders over the years. But my experience has not all been positive - squirrels are smart, crafty and persistent and are often able to get what they want. The best feeder I’ve found is the Squirrel-Be-Gone. It’s easy to change the spring action in order to prevent the feeder from staying open when a squirrel jumps up for a visit. There is some seed fallout from the feeding wells which happens when the birds are feeding (they can be kind of sloppy eaters), but the problem is reduced greatly compared with other feeders I’ve had.

Review RateNot worth buying
Squirrels figure out very quickly how to beat this feeder. Then they get frustrated that it is still hard to get the seeds out so they chew out the plastic around the openings. Very cheaply made and not worth buying.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
