A squirrel proof feeder which uses a simple, effective mechanism using gravity to protect the nuts. The squirrel proof feeder is made of stainless steel & aluminium with a quality construction & high strength, making it almost indestructible by squirrels.
A squirrel proof feeder from the Gardman range of wild bird care.
The squirrel proof feeders have been approved by both the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) and the BSA (Birdcare Standards Association).
The squirrel proof feeders have a simple, effective mechanism which uses gravity to protect the nuts. The squirrel approaches the squirrel proof feeder from above & attempts to climb onto the feeding section.The squirrel's bodyweight then lowers the protective sleeve saving the nuts for the birds.
These squirrel proof feeders have a high strength & quality construction in stainless steel & aluminium which means the feeder is virtually indestructible to sharp squirrels teeth.
The dimensions of the squirrel proof feeder are:
Over all length when fully extended (as shown in the photo) = 49cm.
Length when "closed" = 36cm.
Length of inner section holding the peanuts is approx 18cm.
