Protects suet from persistent greedy eaters like starlings, grackles, and squirrels. Unlike most other suet feeders, when the suet compartment bottom metal plate is in place, the Suet Palace keeps squirrels, pesky starlings and grackles from eating the suet. When this feeder is hung high from the ground, grackles and starlings don't often feed at this style of feeder, so you can take the plate out. Now large woodpeckers like flickers, sapsuckers, red headed, red bellied, and even pileated woodpeckers can hang from the bottom and feed. Metal roof protects suet from the elements and provides shelter for feeding birds during inclement weather. Includes hanging chain and easy open secure spring lock. Dimensions: 11" W x 9.5" D x 7" H.
