Droll Yankees Yankee Flipper Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder Review

This is one of the best squirrel-proof bird feeders on the market today. Made by the brand Droll Yankees, the brand has been manufacturing bird feeders since 1969, so it would not be wrong to assume that the brand is well aware of what it is doing. This bird feeder does a great job of depicting what the brand manufactures. This birdfeeder is a motorized birdfeeder that allows birds to feed while also preventing squirrels from getting in and having a meal quickly. Since this is a tube-style feeder, it has a very long and sleek design. This makes it hard for squirrels to hang on this bird feeder and reach down the seed ports.

Moreover, as soon as a squirrel jumps on the feeder’s perches, the feeder will start spinning. Due to this, the squirrel will start panicking and run for his life. The feeder has weight triggers that would cause it to spin only when a squirrel steps on it, and not just birds. The feeder is equipped with four feeding ports, all of which can be easily accessed from one of the perch’s rings. Though the seed capacity of this bird feeder is not that impressive. With only 5 pounds of seed capacity, you would find yourself filling it again and again.
