""This squirrel proof
bird feeder is the best I've had, and I have had a bunch. It has a
huge capacity so you don't have to fill it very often.
It is almost impossible for squirrels to stand on and if
they manage to get a foothold their weight closes the
feeding ports so they can't get anything.
You can adjust it to exclude large birds such as
starlings and grackles. When it needs to be cleaned you
just put it in the dishwasher.
I have had mine for about 3 years and couldn't be
happier with it. If you only have one bird feeder in
your life this should be the one." - R. Weybright

And how many times have you've seen pictures of squirrels
feasting at squirrel proof feeders?
We need to face reality though. There is not one
squirrel proof feeder in the world that is 100% squirrel proof. Some
squirrels are just too smart, little Einsteins that love the
challenge. But there is a squirrel proof bird feeder that is about 99.9%
Finally, a Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder that really
We've done some searching, and based on
consumer reviews the Brome Squirrel Buster Plus is one of the best at deterring squirrels.
How it works: Openings in the bottom section of the feeder align
with seed ports providing birds access to the seed. When a squirrel
or large bird lands on the perch, its weight automatically forces
the "door" down, closing the seed ports.
Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder Video from Brome
This video from Brome shows birds feeding, squirrels not winning
and a little about the feeder assembly. A little long, but nice to
see the feeder in action.
Here are some of the Squirrel Buster Plus Feeder features and why bird watchers love it so much:
Dishwasher Safe : High water temperatures and powerful dish detergents clean and sanitize every
bit of your squirrel proof bird feeder. Clean feeders are
as important to wild birds as clean dishes are to humans. Wild
bird safety is deadly serious business. Spread the word about safe
feeders to your friends and family.
perch : Squirrel
Buster Plus perches are adjustable in
length and lock into place.
Thick perches and textured surfaces provide a secure and
comfortable grip for birds. Perches can be shortened to attract
small birds such as chickadees and finches while deterring larger
birds such as grackles and starlings. Perches can also be extended
just enough to attract medium sized birds such as grosbeaks and
Ventilated: Transparent bird feeder
seed tubes are like greenhouses, they trap solar energy. The air
in Squirrel Buster Plus rises and escapes through unique waterproof
vents at the top of the feeder. The escaping heated air is
replaced by fresh air entering the bottom of the tube through the
seed ports. The birdseed remains fresher and attracts more birds.
Damp and decaying seed decreases bird traffic and can spread
Adjustable weight spring: You can increase or decrease
the tension of the trigger spring to prevent nuisance birds such
as grackles or blackbirds or other pests such as chipmunks from

Removable Cardinal Ring: This optional

features: small necks and big feet. They prefer gripping a
thick-textured perch and facing their food source directly.
Cardinals dislike turning their heads to feed. The Squirrel Buster
Plus Cardinal Ring perch system allows them to eat facing the seed
while providing a secure and comfortable perch. These
cardinal-friendly feeding features combined with a bush level
location make Squirrel Buster Plus very inviting to cardinals.
No Batteries Required and is
Humane to Squirrels : Some
other popular squirrel proof bird feeders require batteries that are drained
quickly and power is not reliable. Also, there is
no "shocking" or other direct physical harm to the squirrels, perhaps, just their

Bruce Queen (Kentucky):
"After trying several feeders with little success the Brome squirrel proof bird feeder fits the bill. It is easy to
fill and hang, and keeps the squirrels and large birds out of the food. It is
very attractive and performs as claimed. I highly recommend this feeder."
