A simple, classic bird feeder option, this feeder comes completely assembled so you can hang it up immediately. The feeder features an included roof that allows birds to eat while sheltered from the rain and sun. As they eat seeds from the tray, food continues to refill the tray automatically until it’s empty. It holds as much as 2.15 pounds of seeds at a time and can be filled with different types of seeds depending on the types of birds you want to attract. The twist lock cover ensures the lid stays closed tightly so seeds stay dry and fresh. It easily opens for easy refilling, and the clear panel design ensures you can keep tabs on seed levels.

Most people want bird feeders to attract birds – not squirrels. This feeder makes it easy to keep squirrels from eating all the bird feed because it has a shroud that will automatically close with the weight of a squirrel on it. The exposed feeder parts are made from Rox Resin, a chew-proof material that ensures squirrels won’t chew up the feeder. With a special seed ventilation system, seed is kept fresh so it attracts more wild birds to your yard. The adjustable spring mechanism easily adjusts, too, allowing you to control the size of birds that can feed at the Squirrel Buster. It also comes with a cardinal ring that’ll help you bring those lovely Northern Cardinals to your feeder. It’s easy to set up and use and requires no tools.
