Once cleaned and filled this metal bird feeder can then be hung up in your garden from a branch or hook using the fat ball feeders ocean green handle.

*A Note On Juvenile Squirrels

The Nuttery feeders can only protect against adult grey squirrels and large adult birds such as magpies, crows rooks etc, which ultimately do the most damage.  Some birds, such as a woodpecker, wont fit through the bars but could manage to get their beaks inside and access the food.

There is always a chance than an adolescent young squirrel could squeeze into the bars and access the feeder.  The young squirrels look very similar to adults but are actually far fluffier making them much more flexible!  Squirrels are normally born in March, April, July and August so there may well be a risk around these months. This is short term issue and will be the problem of any feeder that has researched the necessary bar spacing required.  You may also find that adolescent jackdaws, crows and pigeons may find their way in.  The bars on these feeders cannot be made smaller to protect from adolescent or red squirrels as this would pose a risk to the birds.

 If squirrels do manage to get into the feeders to prevent damage to the plastic tubes a a dash of chilli flakes mixed in with the nuts or seeds will have no effect on the birds at all but will deter the squirrels.

Dimensions:

H 170mm x W 220mm x D 155mm.

Please note the feeder is not supplied with a wall bracket.

    Ideal for keeping large birds away Review by Patricia Hendry
    This feeder has turned out to be ideal as it is keeping the large birds such as crows from eating all the fat balls. Very sturdily constructed. (Posted on 30/08/2019)

    Select Bird Customers only! Review by Sonia
    A very well constructed feeder made from good materials. The finches and tits love it. The robin cannot
    cope with it at all, but then robins are ground feeders. I am very pleased to have bought this feeder as squirrels are a massive problem in our garden. (Posted on 28/08/2019)

    Good Quality Feeder Review by Roger
    Excellent quality feeder that is easy to fill and clean. Jackdaws and magpies can no longer gorge themselves but sparrows, starlings and other small birds can. (Posted on 07/08/2019)
