""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 (Rock Island, Illinois)
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% effective...
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.
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:
There are also several models that vary in price. The latest model is the Brome 1024 which is the one we discuss on this page. There is also the classic version, a finch model and a mini version, all listed below.
We found many reviews from birders (as below) who raved about this squirrel proof bird feeder because it really does work:
Believe it! It is squirrel proof!"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."
Testimonial from Bruce Queen (Kentucky):
At the below link, we reviewed the Brome Squirrel Buster Feeders as well as three other brands including the Absolute II, Super Stop-A-Squirrel and the Droll Yankee Flipper if you would like to compare feeders:
We also have found this Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder Pole system to do an excellent job at keeping the squirrels from stealing bird seed by integrating a floating squirrel baffle.
Here is a great article, What Can You Do About Squirrels (pdf file, opens in new window) from BirdNotes from Sapsucker Woods, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's newsletter.
