Droll Yankees Yankee Whipper Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder
You'll get an effortless leg up on those crummy squirrels with this fool- and squirrel-proof bird feeder from Droll Yankees. The Yankee Whipper's elegantly curved perches are calibrated to hold the weight of birds up to the size of the Northern cardinal. Anything heavier will tip the perches and be unable to get access to the seeds within. An additional security measure is the metal powder-coated cap of the tube, which is impervious to little paws and jaws. You'll get hours of entertainment from watching squirrels and other creatures tumble spectacularly from this feeder!

Great for discouraging squirrels and the reason I bought. This is the third one I own. Keep up the good work.
Have to report that there is utter disappointment in the squirrel community now that I have replaced their favorite diner with the Whipper. I am saving so much $$ now! Well built, like all the Droll Yankee products, and easy to fill.
I had been plagued with problems with squirrels and pigeons invading my bird feeders. I managed to get rid of the squirrels but nothing seemed to vanquish the pigeons. But, that was until I purchased the Whipper. The pigeons are just too heavy for them and they cannot feed at this type of feeder. The pigeons have been relegated to feeding on the ground from the meager food that the smaller wild birds drop. I have been very satisfied with the results, so far.
This is one of the best squirrel proof feeders. The perches really do collapse under the weight of the squirrel. And they are tough as nails. I have used other Yankee products and somehow the little critters managed to UNSCREW the perches. This one has them fooled.
I love this bird feeder ! I finally found a feeder that keeps the squirrels away like it PROMISED ! It holds a lot of food so I'm not out there every other day filling it up. I can put a variety of different types of food or just one kind. The amount of birds and new types of birds I now have has tripled in quantity.
I love the feeder! The squirrels cannot get to the seed!
This is an excellent product and fast service too. I am very happy!
Past experience has made me a fan of yours. Good service, a part replaced at no charge and rapid response to orders as well as quality goods.This is a very good product!
Nice bird feeder!
The feeder attracts a large variety of birds , mainly cardinals, chickadees, goldfinches and titmice. We never saw most of them in the woods next to our backyard before. It is perfectly squirrel proof as advertised. We also have a chipmunk that twice climbed up to the top of the pole from which the feeder is suspended and then climbed down again. On the third ascent the chipmunk tried to a leap from the pole to the feeder, missed and landed on the ground. Since then, it is content to eat some seeds and shells that drop to the ground as the birds feed.
Our feeder works great with preventing the squirrels from eating non-stop. They finally have stopped trying. We do have female grackles and doves eating from it - they just flap their wings non-stop to stay on the perches to graze. I was hoping they'd wear out and stop but ... not yet! We wish the perches were a little more sensitive to their weight. The male grackles have stopped. They don't fit! Our son has this same feeder and we've recommended it to others. We love your website - especially the video!
I first became aware of this feeder when I worked for the Wild Bird Center in Alexandria, VA. The product was sold in that store and it got rave reviews from all the customers who purchased it. I purchased this feeder for my step-brother and his family because they live in an area near Cincinnati, OH which has many trees and twice as many squirrels. They have had tremendous success since putting the feeder up. No more squirrel or raccoon problems.
I have had a Droll tipping feeder for about 5 yrs., and it's GREAT!(5 Stars) The Whipper is just okay, both feeders are on the same pole I have found that all species, large and small go to the tipper 1st. I have to refill it long before the Whipper the doves have especially difficult time trying to perch on it. I wish I had bought another Tipper.

In 1969, Peter Kilham developed the A-6F tubular bird feeder, leading to a new and exciting approach in bird feeding. As an artist, engineer and inventor, he cared about using quality materials and innovative design to create a feeder that birds loved and people found easy to use. Still a best seller, the functional simplicity of the A-6 preserves its place as the standard in the industry.
At Droll Yankees, we continue to strive to maintain the high standards of design and functionality set by Peter Kilham. We're proud of our feeders and the legacy of being recognized as makers of the world's best bird feeders.
