Perky-Pet® Bird Feeder - NO SQUIRRELS!

Thankfully, we aren't bothered by squirrels trying to eat at our bird feeders here at Our Little Acre.  It's not that we don't have squirrels, because we do.  We even had one in our house once.  (THAT was fun.)  But for some reason, they keep to the big oak tree in the front yard and the smaller nearby maple.

Mmmm!  Acorns!
We think it's probably the herd of cats we have that discourages them from coming closer to the house, although undoubtedly the squirrels would win if they were to stage an invasion of the turf that our cats consider to be theirs.  We also have more than our fair share of acorns from several large oaks, so  maybe they get enough to eat from those.

But I've seen numerous complaints by bird enthusiasts about squirrels wanting a piece of the pie that doesn't belong to them, so I know it can be a real problem for a lot of people.  This bird feeder from Perky-Pet®
is designed to discourage such behavior from the squirrels.  Here's how it works:

Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone®
The Baffler

I like that this feeder is large enough to not need filling as often as smaller ones (it holds three pounds of feed). I especially like that it's so well-made, with its heavy-duty powder-coated finish.  Not only that, it's an attractive feeder, and if the squirrels ever do try to eat from the feeders, we're prepared. (Pre-emptive strike!)

The baffle at the top tilts to throw the squirrels off balance.

Since we've put up the feeder, I've seen cardinals, goldfinches, nuthatches, and numerous other birds feeding from it.

Sparrows need to eat, too!

For more information on this feeder and others, visit Perky-Pet®!  Right now, they have many of their feeders on sale, with free shipping on orders over $50.

I was sent the Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® The Baffler bird feeder free of charge to trial here at Our Little Acre.  I was not required to write about the feeder, but I wanted to share it with my readers, in case they were interested in an item like this.  All opinions expressed here are my own.

I have one squirrel-proof feeder but the rest are exposed. For two years they didn't find my feeders. My hunch is it is the same guy because I never see two at the same time. So I've just resolved myself to feeding him in order to get my beloved cardinals, finches, snow birds and occasional downy woodpecker.
