Product Description

The Yankee Tipper collapsible mechanical feeding tray is weight-activated using a patented Droll Yankees design. Song birds can eat, but a squirrel?s weight on the seed tray causes it to tip down. 21" long tubular feeder with 5 lb seed capacity. Sturdy stainless steel wire hanger will not rust. Metal cap fits snugly so that squirrels cannot pry it off. 4-1/2" diameter seed tube is made of UV stabilized polycarbonate for durability and holds about 4 quarts of seed. Tube is long enough so that squirrels can?t hang down from the top and reach seed. Interior is properly baffled to direct seed to the seed ports. Four seed ports are positioned around the tube. Metal parts have a midnight black finish.

Fill It Up and Let the Frustrated Squirrels Entertain You
Review Date: March 8, 2007
Reviewer: Carl B, Arvada, CO
This device works as designed. It is very entertaining to watch the squirrels try to figure out a way to get to the seed (they can, but only a few seeds at a time). It works so well that my wife feels sorry for the squirrels and fills a squirrel feeder so they won't starve during the winter.

We love feeding the birds that come into our yard and have several feeders around but hated the fact we had to fill the feeders every single day. This feeder is a pleasure because the birds love it and we love it more simply because it holds enough seed to last several days. Because of that, we have just ordered a second one. Happy bird watching!!!!!
great feeder for birds, not squirrels

this is a great bird feeder for all types of birds, and the squirrels cannot get to it. the bottom flips them right off - well, something like that. the company shipped it out faster than requested and customer service is great. highly recommend.
Squirrels have left!

Our previous bird feeder, despite cones and shields on the pole, always had 5 to 8 squirrels -- crowding out the birds. Now we enjoy birds only -- all squirrels have left! Also, the large capacity means I only fill it every 3 to 4 days. I plan to buys another one for a different part of the yard. The only drawback is the price -- a lot to pay for a bird feeder.
I like it so far but...

The feeder arrived very quickly which was really nice: the durn squirrels were breaking me.
Dang gum squirrels

Well. I haven't tried all the "squirrel-proof" feeders, and this one won't qualify, but it makes the little buggers work for their calories. It's the cleanest feeder with a seed tray I've ever used. In fact this feeder is overall easy to clean and easy to fill. My only complaint (and this is tongue in cheek) is that my pesky raccoon with his 'coon IQ of 180 managed to unscrew the washer that holds the tray on. The birds didn't like the absence of the tray, but they adapted, hanging on the ports to feed. The raccon went hungry.

Squirrels quickly learn to brace themselves against the lip of the tray. As suggested,you can invert the seed tray but my squirrels still find a way to hang on and can feed for a few minutes at a time.
