Cage Bird Feeder Selection
A cage bird feeder is ideal for preventing squirrels or large nuisance birds from swiping your bird seed--some of them are so tough they even keep out bears! Constructed from either wire or mesh, a cage bird feeder can be purchased in a variety of stylish designs, from slender peanut feeders to large wire cages. A cage bird feeder will attract both clinging and perching birds. They are typically easy to clean--some are even dishwasher friendly--and can serve up to 20 birds at once.
A cage bird feeder can hold many different kinds of seed, which means it has the flexibility to attract a number of bird species.

It is not squirrel proof. They still take a lot of seeds. Our squirrels (red and gray) hang upside down on it and reach in to get seeds off the bottom plate. I will admit, though, this is the longest-lasting feeder I've ever had. I have two. They've taken a tumble to the ground from my raised deck from time to time (12' drop) and have not been damaged. And the squirrels cannot get at the plastic seed holder so they cannot chew it up.
It's a great feeder! Huge volume and easy to clean and maintain. I have a big dove population which emptied all my non caged types. This one relegates them to feeding from the spillover underneath. My only negative is I wish the openings were a bit larger to fit cardinals, but all in all I couldn't be happier.
I thought it would be bigger. But the squirrels and tree squirrels can still get into the seeds.
Terrific product. Works perfectly.
I really like this birdfeeder. It holds a lot of seed, and allows the woodpeckers and other clinging birds to feed. HOWEVER, unfortunately, the squirrels love this feeder too. It allows them to display their acrobatics, and hang upside down to fill their bellies.
Well made and easy to fill and as hard as they try the squirrels can get in.
This is the second Sweet Tweet Cafi that I have purchased. I like them because they are easy to fill and clean. The birds love them because many different species can figure out a way to get to the seed. Some go directly to the feeder and some like to browse below.The squirrels do not like them because they cannot get to the seed. Well, actually, there is not such thing as a totally squirrel proof bird feeder but this one is pretty good. I put it on a pole in my backyard with a baffle below. That helps keeps squirrels away from the feeder.
