Product Description

Feed birds (not squirrels!) with the revolutionary Squirrel-X2 squirrel-resistant bird feeder! If a squirrel tries to feed on any of the 2 spring-loaded perches, the X2’s integrated design shuts every port simultaneously. And if a squirrel tries to hang from the top, the X2’s hinged roof tilts under the weight of the squirrel, closing both ports to stop racketeering rodents right in their tracks! From Cardinals and Grosbeaks to Finches and more, songbirds love the X2’s long, broad perches. Its supersized 4 lbs. seed capacity lasts longer between refillings, and the Stay Full Port® seed diverter design keeps seeds flowing to hungry birds. To top it all off, the wide top opening makes cleaning and refilling a breeze! With a vintage burnt penny finish and a rugged metal frame, the X2 combines strength & style to bring you the ultimate in squirrel-resistant bird feeding and your best defense against squirrels!

Squirrel-Proofing Tips

Squirrels are so clever and relentless and it seems sometimes that they’re smarter than most other animals. One of the biggest challenges to feeding wild birds—our own challenge too—is deterring squirrels. We work on a daily basis to create quality products and cultivate good advice that will help us all win this fight.

The key to successfully keeping a feeder squirrel-proof is its placement. Squirrels are agile and are able to jump up to 8ft horizontally and 4ft vertically. For this reason, we recommend that feeders be placed 8ft away from any structures that they can climb on so that they do not reach across to access the feeding holes. It can be helpful to trim back and prune any nearby bushes or branches within 12ft of a feeder. We also recommend that feeders be placed higher than 4ft off the ground, preventing the squirrels from jumping and grabbing onto the bottom. If you are using a hook or pole, we recommend that the hook have at least a 16in distance from the pole. Placing a baffle on the pole or having a caged feeder will also help to ensure squirrel-proofing success.
