Birds Choice Recycled Squirrel Jar Feeder
A removable gallon jar connects to the front of the feeder and keeps whatever food you offer, from peanuts to corn, nice and dry. The squirrels access the food through side holes that prevent larger animals from getting in.
The best part is that the feeder is constructed with 5/8" poly-lumber made from recycled plastic and milk jugs for an environmentally friendly design.
Like all Birds Choice products, this squirrel feeder is made in the United States and comes with a lifetime guarantee against cracking, splitting, or fading. Since squirrels are known to figure out ways to destroy anything they see, that guarantee is something you shouldn't take lightly.
• Dimensions: 19"L x 7 1/4"W x 15 3/4"H
• Poly-lumber made from recycled plastic and milk jugs
• Lifetime guarantee to never crack, split or fade
• Stainless steel screws
• Thick acrylic panels
This is fantastic feeder. We try to attract squirrels away from our many bird feeders and this does the trick. They were very curious and a little timid at first however they quickly learned how to get in. We put in peanuts, sunflower seeds and ears of corn. They seem to like it all. We even have 2 flying squirrels that come at night to feed. Only problem is keeping it filled because they eat so much.
The squirrel jar feeder is just what we were looking for to keep the crows from eating the squirrel food. I keep the feeder on the ground next to the tree where the squirrels play/feed. It is very sturdy and the jar is secure in the mouth piece. Also keeps the peanuts, acorns, etc dry. We love it. Well worth the price!
I really like this squirrel Jar feeder because it keeps the crows away from the squirrel's peanuts. I use unsalted peanuts in the shell and this feeder makes it so only the squirrels can get their food now. The crows now sit on the ground hoping a squirrel will drop a peanut. Don't worry I also toss bread and apples out for the crows!
No mounting hardware . The hole provided on the house are pin hole size and of a very poor design and if nails were used washers would be required. The glass jar is very non friendly and resistant to place into house after filling with seed. That struggle would take it's toll on mounting hardware. Some edges are very sharp. Requires some reviews by makers of this product.
The product is in concept great. The design failure relates to the feeder jar. The glass is high risk. As in my case a raccoon attack resulted and the jar being dislodged and shattering. It would be better made from acrylic/plastic. In addition if the mouth of the jar was able to thread into the feeder fixture, which would lock it in place. Hope these suggestions serve helpful. Thanks.
