Squirrel Buster Nut Feeder (+ suet nuggets + dried fruit)
Openings in the middle section of the metal shroud align with the ports, providing birds access to the food. When a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, its weight automatically forces the shroud down, closing access to the ports. This action is weight adjustable to also help control unwanted large birds. Woodpecker friendly design. Two sizes of wire mesh for the ports are provided to accommodate a variety of foods, for example, shelled nuts, suet nuggets, or dried fruit.
Remember it's the squirrel's weight that triggers the closing mechanism. If a squirrel can reach over from a nearby foothold and avoid placing weight on the feeder, then the squirrel will have access to the seed ports! Allow for at least 18 inches of clearance around the feeder. This will force the squirrel to climb or jump onto the feeder, thus triggering the closing mechanism.
Capacity: 3/4 quart of shelled peanuts or wild bird food nuggets, such as suet nuggets. Dimensions: 18" H (plus 9" hanger) x 4.75" diameter. From Brome Bird Care.
