The 50 Top-Rated Wild Bird Feeders to Keep the Squirrels Out of Your Bird Seed

Feeding the birds of your neighborhood is often difficult, thanks to the squirrels of your neighborhood. There are plenty of ways to feed the squirrel population, but finding a way to exclude them from the bird feeding party can prove a bit tricky. There are some options, though: you can buy an ordinary feeder and utilize attachments or hangers that will alter the feeder, or you can buy feeders that are especially designed to deter squirrels.

Whether you want a fully squirrel-proof feeder you can simply hang and go or are looking for some options to squirrel-proof your existing wild bird feeder, you’ll find a solution to your squirrel headaches in the list below. We’ve rounded up 50 top-rated squirrel-proof wild bird feeders, listed below in alphabetical order for easy reference. Ratings are based on Amazon and are current at the time of this publication.

1. Arundale – The Sky Cafe

Arundale - The Sky Cafe

Current Rating: 4.5

This bird feeder comes with a lifetime warranty against squirrel damage, and the 17-inch plastic dome will keep the little critters out of your bird feed. The overhang of the dome is enough to create a protection for birds while they eat, so they can enjoy a feast even in the pouring rain. And with a 1-gallon capacity, you’ll have fewer trips to make to refill.

Key Features:

  • 1-gallon max capacity
  • 17″ dome
  • Lifetime warranty against squirrel damage

Cost: Est. $60

  • Lifetime guarantee

3. Audubon Squirrel Proof Caged Tube Type Bird Feeder

Audubon Squirrel Proof Caged Tube Type Bird Feeder Model NATUBE3

Current Rating: 4.3

This bird feeder ensures that no squirrel will disturb it by encasing it in a cage. The spaces between the steel wires are large enough for a bird to reach his food, but the squirrel will be too big to penetrate. Refilling will be a breeze; you simply pop the tube out of the cage and put back in place when done. The feeder itself has 4 seed ports with stands for birds to perch while eating.

Key Features:

  • Powder-coated steel cage and ABS plastic feed tube
  • Holds 1.25 lbs of food
  • Easy pop-out base

Cost: Est. $40

4. Audubon Torpedo Steel Squirrel Baffle

Audubon Torpedo Steel Squirrel Baffle Model NATORPEDO

Current Rating: 4.4

This isn’t a bird feeder so much as an aid to ensure your feeder will be unharmed by a squirrel. The proper term for this is a baffle – its presence will bewilder or perplex a squirrel trying to get to the bird seed. Simply put, a squirrel won’t be able to get around it in order to get to the feed.

Key Features:

  • Made of texture powder-coated steel
  • Slides on and installs with included hardware
  • Designed for garden hook-style bird feeders

Cost: Est. $30

5. Backyard ExpressionsBackyard Expressions - 3 Assorted Colorful Seed Ball Bird Feeders or Candle Holders in One Package

Current Rating: 4.1

This is a set of bird feeders that will all be a deterrent to squirrels because the holes in these feeders are quite small. You’ll need to keep that in mind when purchasing your seed, but once you find the proper seed, these will help your birds get the feed while keeping those pesky squirrels out. The reviewers do mention altering the lids to prevent a smart squirrel from opening them, but a small tweak will leave you pleased on that front, as well.

Key Features:

  • Set of 3 assorted colors
  • 4.5″ sphere
  • “Pennington” classic (or smaller) seeds work best

Cost: Est. $15

6. Bird Quest SBF2Y 17″ Spiral Thistle Bird Feeder

Bird Quest SBF2Y 17 Spiral Thistle Bird Feeder - Yellow

Current Rating: 4.1

The reviews on this feeder’s squirrel resilience are a bit mixed. Red squirrels seem to be a bit more determined than grey with this feeder, and even they are often deterred. But even so, getting a baffle or hanging it on a shepherd’s hook should prevent squirrel damage, if you find your squirrels particularly destructive. The birds, however will love the spiral perch that will have them “running the spiral” and climbing up and down the spiral rather than flying in between feed ports. Not only is it a fun experience for them, but you’ll enjoy watching them, as well.

Key Features:

  • 3 color choices
  • Spiral perch for several bird capacity
  • 9 thistle feed ports

Cost: Est. $30

7. Birds Choice 12″ Classic Hanging Tube Feeder

Birds Choice 12 Classic Hanging Tube Feeder

Current Rating: 4.3

This bird feeder essentially has a baffle built into it just above the seed ports. This will protect your birds while they eat and prevent squirrels from getting to the feed. The 2 sizes allow you to add in more or less feed and the construction of this feeder is a UV resistant polycarbonate with metal embellishments.

Key Features:

  • 2 size options
  • 1.2- or 2.2-gallon max capacity
  • 4 aluminum seed ports

Cost: Est. $35

8. Brome 1015 Squirrel Buster Classic

Brome 1015 Squirrel Buster Classic Garden Lawn Supply Maintenance

Current Rating: 4.6

This is a squirrel-proof feeder that will also prevent any creature “too big” from accessing the seed. The weight of larger creatures, such as squirrels, raccoons, and the like, will push the seed port windows closed and thus prevent the animal from getting any food from the port. Animals will be blocked, not harmed, and we quite like the image of a very confused squirrel sauntering off, defeated.

Key Features:

  • 4″D x 21″H
  • 1.4-quart max capacity
  • 2-year warranty

Cost: Est. $55

9. Brome 1057 Squirrel Buster Standard 5″x5″x21.5″ Wild Bird Feeder

Brome 1057 Squirrel Buster Standard Wild Bird Feeder with 4 Metal Perches Seed Capacity

Current Rating: 4.4

This bird feeder is Amazon’s Choice for “Squirrel-Proof Bird feeder,” and with over 1,600 reviews, it’s no wonder. This feeder utilizes the same technology as the feeder above, closing off when too much weight is added, but this feeder allows you to adjust the spring so you may determine the weight. This is particularly handy if you have aggressive bigger birds, as well. All parts that can be exposed to a squirrel are chew-proof, so that a frustrated squirrel will not be able to chew through the seed port’s closure.

Key Features:

  • Chew-proof
  • Adjustable spring weight
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Cost: Est. $30

10. Brome 2004 Squirrel Solution Wild Bird Feeder

Brome 2004 Squirrel Solution Wild Bird Feeder with 6 Feeding Ports 2qt 34lb Seed Capacity Free Seed Funnel

Current Rating: 4.5

This feeder will, like all Brome Feeders, automatically close with the weight of a squirrel and also features a seed ventilation system that makes sure that heat escapes to keep your feed fresh. There are 6 feeding ports, and this feeder can hold 3.4 pounds of feed. It also helps to ward off large birds, and all feeder parts exposed to squirrels are chew-proof.

Key Features:

  • Includes seed funnel
  • Auto closes with squirrel weight
  • Lifetime limited warranty

Cost: Est. $45

11. Brome Squirrel Buster Plus Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

Current Rating: 5.0

This bird feeder helps to ensure that your squirrels take the hint. A pole (sold separately) can be added to prevent squirrel climbing, as well as a baffle (also sold separately) that will prevent an air attack if your squirrels are jumpers. The baffle can also protect birds from weather, and the feed ports are closed with the weight of any squirrel.

Key Features:

  • Includes pole, feeder, and baffle
  • 6 seed ports
  • Weight closes seed ports

Cost: Est. $160

12. Charm Garden – Hanging Bird Feeder

Charm Garden - Hanging Bird Feeder Metal Squirrel Proof Seed Outdoor Garden Wild Perky Pet NEW

Current Rating: 5.0

This may not have a lot of reviews on Amazon yet, but we think it’s worth a look. Its lid is designed to be a kind of baffle in itself, and the Sure-Lock will prevent squirrels from pulling it off to access the seed inside. You can use virtually any type of bird seed, and the copper finish lends a classy touch to your yard.

Key Features:

  • Copper finish
  • 2-lb max capacity
  • Sure-Lock lid to prevent theft

Cost: Est. $35

13. Chilipet – Metal Tube Wild Bird Feeder

Chilipet - Metal Tube Wild Bird Feeder Attract More Birds Perfect for Garden Decoration

Current Rating: 54.4

The smooth metal design of this bird feeder leaves no grip for any intruder squirrels, making it very difficult for them to steal your bird’s food. With a sliding lid, it cannot be removed by mischievous squirrels, and refilling it is a breeze. It will hold approximately 1 pound of seed and the smaller perches will also prevent the bigger birds (black birds and doves, for example) from camping out and hogging the seed.

Key Features:

  • Holds approximately 1 pound of seed
  • 10″H x 4″ W
  • Made with durable metal and plastic accents

Cost: Est. $15

14. Coveside Panoramic In-house Window Bird Feeder with Mirrored Panel

Coveside Panoramic In-house Window Bird Feeder with Mirrored Panel

Current Rating: 4.1

This is just such an interesting way to bird watch! You put this in your window, and you can enjoy watching the birds eat from your comfy and warm seat inside. Refilling is so simple, you don’t even have to go outside – it’s simply a lift and dump from inside your house. It’s made with a one-way mirror, meaning the birds won’t see you even though you can see them, so you won’t have to worry about scaring them off. But be warned, if you have a jumpy cat or dog, they may not stand for birds in their territory without some fuss.

Key Features:

  • 1-way mirror lets you watch birds without disturbing them
  • Installs simply into your window
  • Refill seed with a hatch opened from inside

Cost: Est. $130

15. Droll Yankees SDC-B Sunflower/Mixed Seed Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

Droll Yankees SDC-B SunflowerMixed Seed Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder 15 Black

Current Rating: 5.0

This bird feeder is ideal for song birds; they can slip through the cage easily while squirrels and larger birds simply won’t fit. Refilling is as simple as pulling the top tube up, and its 4 seed ports will allow your song birds to eat without having to share with one another.

Key Features:

  • Stainless steel construction

17. Droll Yankees YF Flipper 4-Port Hanging Bird Feeder

Droll Yankees YF Flipper 4-Port Hanging Bird Feeder

Current Rating: 4.4

This feeder is a smooth one that won’t give too many opportunities for gripping squirrels, but should they actually make it to one of the 4 seed ports, they’re in for quite the surprise. The weight of a squirrel will set off a motor which will spin the feeder and toss the squirrel from it (gently enough that it won’t harm them, of course). We’re tempted to get this model for ourselves just for the entertainment value.

Key Features:

  • Spinning feeder will toss squirrels
  • 5-lb seed capacity
  • 1-year electronic warranty; limited lifetime warranty

Cost: Est. $105

18. Gardener’s Supply Company – Squirrel Resistant Globe Cage Mixed Seed Bird Feeder

Gardeners Supply Company - Squirrel Resistant Globe Cage Mixed Seed Bird Feeder

Current Rating: 4.1

This is a sure-fire way to get only the small, adorable birds coming to your yard, because only they will fit into and out of the cage surrounding the actual feeder. The cage is a powder-coated steel and the feeding tube is a polycarbonate with plastic seed ports, so you won’t need to worry about how well it will hold up.

Key Features:

  • 11.75″ in diameter
  • 4 seed ports
  • Holds 3 cups of seed

Cost: Est. $30

19. Grateful Gnome – Bridge – Window Bird Feeder

Grateful Gnome - Bridge - Window Bird Feeder - Clear Acrylic House for Small Birds Like Finch and Chickadee - Holds Up to 4 Cups - Virtually Squirrel Proof

Current Rating: 4.2

Unless a squirrel can Spiderman-crawl up a smooth glass window, this is a pretty effective squirrel deterrent. You refill the seed from the top and the feeding trough is located along the bottom of the arch, allowing several birds to feed at once. And the proximity to your house means you’ll be able to enjoy your bird watching without any changes to your day; just look out the window.

Key Features:

  • Secured with 3 all-weather suction cups
  • Durable acrylic construction

Cost: Est. $20

20. GrayBunny GB-6856 Premium Steel Sunflower Seed and Peanut Feeder

GrayBunny GB-6856 Premium Steel Sunflower Seed and Peanut Feeder 95 Tall Wild Bird Feeder for Woodpeckers Titmice Nuthatches Chickadees Jays and More

Current Rating: 4.2

This bird feeder is for a bigger pecking bird, so you can fill it with whole peanuts. Some reviewers say that their squirrels can get to them, but others claim that whole peanuts with the shell are too big to fit through the grated cage and therefore will only be a good meal for woodpeckers and blue jays – the birds with longer beaks. This bird feeder may be just what you need to attract a whole new bird crowd.

Key Features:

  • Slide on/off lid for easy refill
  • 2 size choices: 15″ or 9.5″
  • 1-year warranty

Cost: Est. $10

21. Heritage Farms Bird’s Choice Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

Heritage Farms Birds Choice Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder Red

Current Rating: 4.0

Key Features:

  • 5.5″H x 13″W
  • Durable metal and plastic construction
  • 6-quart max capacity

Cost: Est. $50

22. Kanaryware Window Bird Feeder

Kanaryware Window Bird Feeder - Built To Last A Lifetime - Decorate Your House With Beautiful Wild Birds

Current Rating: 4.7

This window bird feeder is a little solution to that big squirrel problem. There are no grips on a window, so the only thing that will be able to reach this feeder are creatures with the ability to fly. This isn’t a large feeder, so it will hardly hinder the view from your window – but it will allow you to see your little bird friend up close as he eats.

Key Features:

  • Made of 100% acrylic
  • 2 extra suction cups included
  • Drain holes to keep seeds from retaining moisture

Cost: Est. $10

23. Kettle Moraine Squirrel Proof 2 Arm Bird Feeder Pole Set

Kettle Moraine Squirrel Proof 2 Arm Bird Feeder Pole Set with Baffle & Twister Ground Socket

Current Rating: 4.9

This is not exactly a bird feeder, it’s true. But this is the only thing besides the feeder and seed itself you’ll ever need to buy to keep squirrels away. This hook is made of a heavy-duty powder-coated steel that will ensure years if not decades of use, and the twister ground socket ensures it will not simply blow over in a strong wind. The pole itself arrives in three pieces which fit securely inside one another. The 2 hooks will allow you to hand not just one, but two feeders, and the baffle will protect each feeder from interloping squirrels.

Key Features:

  • 85″ H and arms are each 12″
  • Pole is 1″ steel
  • Twists and buries 21″ into ground

Cost: Est. $110

24. More Birds Bird Feeder, Hopper Bird Feeder

More Birds Bird Feeder Hopper Bird Feeder Large Seed Capacity 36 lb 4 Feeding Ports Copper Finish

Current Rating: 4.2

This bird feeder is a beautiful addition to your yard, and its clipping lid should prevent too many squirrels from raiding it (depending what kind of evil genius squirrels you have in your neighborhood, of course). The hopper feeds seed out of the bottom 4 ports, and the heavy-duty construction means that a squirrel will not be able to damage it in his frustration.

Key Features:

  • Made with durable metal and finished with copper
  • 4 seed ports
  • 3.6-lb max capacity

Cost: Est. $20

25. More Birds X-4 Squirrel-Proof Bird FeederMore Birds X-4 Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder with 15-Pound Bird Seed Capacity and Four Feeding Ports

Current Rating: 3.7

This feeder will prevent your sneaky squirrels from swiping your birdseed. The weight of the squirrel (or the big bully birds) will effectively close off the only feed trough for this feeder. It will hold an impressive 8 pounds of seed, which combined with the absence of thieving, gorging squirrels, means you’ll have fewer trips out to refill.

Key Features:

  • 3 color choices
  • 8-lb seed capacity
  • Durable all metal construction

Cost: Est. $30

Key Features:

  • 2 color choices
  • 12″ H x 6.7″ W

Current Rating: 4.6

When you’re looking for a common item, you may find just a small difference in the basic design is all its takes to sway your decision. If you have a window that opens in, a window feeder can mean a lot of convenience no matter how you slice it. But this particular feeder has a tray that will allow you to pull it out, scoop it into the big bag of feed, and replace it – refills are really that easy.

Key Features:

  • Anti-moisture draining bottom
  • Removable seed tray
  • 100% satisfaction guarantee

Cost: Est. $25

28. Nature Products 431 Green Classic Pole Mount Wild Bird Feeder

This feeder includes a 3-sectioned pole that, once seated into the ground, will be about 5 feet tall. The feeder itself has a squirrel baffle attached that will prevent any intruders, and the capacity for seed is 1.2 gallons – which will keep you from constantly refilling it.

Current Rating: 4.4

Key Features:

  • Polycarbonate tube and powder-coated metal alloy
  • 1.5-lb seed max capacity
  • 2 seed ports

Cost: Est. $15

31. No/No Bronze Tray Bird Feeder

No No Bronze Tray Bird Feeder BZUD00326

Current Rating: 4.2

The “No/No” name refers to a company construction policy: There are no plastic and no wood parts in any of their products. That makes this feeder an incredibly durable one that may well outlast you on this earth. This bird feeder can feed up to 15 birds at once. If you choose a seed that will deter squirrels, that alone may be enough, but you may want to also buy other accessories to deter them (a baffle or a garden hook, for example). Try safflower seed to keep away squirrels and black birds.

Key Features:

  • No plastic, no wood; all metal
  • 9″D x 9″H
  • 2.5-lb seed capacity

Cost: Est. $25

32. No/No Multi Seed Feeder, Red and Black

No No Multi Seed Feeder Red and Black RBMS00341

Current Rating:  4.2

The bowl shape of the lid on this double-decker bird feeder will be sure to keep most squirrels away. You may need extra accessories if you have a particularly aggressive set of squirrels, though. The two tiers allow enough birds on the feeder to turn eating into a full dinner party.

Key Features:

  • No plastic, no wood in construction
  • 4-pound seed capacity
  • 14″ high, 2 tier feeding troughs

Cost: Est. $35

33. No/No RSB00343 Red Seed Ball Wild Bird Feeder

No No RSB00343 Red Seed Ball Wild Bird Feeder

Current Rating: 4.1

This feeder is a colorful addition to your yard that could really make it pop. You may end up wanting to buy a baffle or a hook to ensure absolutely no squirrels get to the feed, or you may simply want to buy seeds that squirrels don’t have as much interest in. If your neighborhood doesn’t have a big squirrel population, you may need no alterations. But at under $10 (the green is under $5!), this is a great little bird feeder.

Key Features:

  • 2 color choices
  • No plastic, no wood in construction
  • Holds 6 cups of bird seed

Cost: Est. $10

34. Pawhut Triple Chamber Squirrel Resistant Outdoor Bird Feeder

Pawhut Triple Chamber Squirrel Resistant Outdoor Bird Feeder

Current Rating: 5.0

This bird feeder will please any bird watcher with its 3 separate chambers for 3 different seeds. The wide grated side, the smaller mesh cage, and the clear plastic compartment will allow you to attract a wide variety of birds to your yard. The lid is a smallish type of baffle, and even if a very determined squirrel should make it to the seed, you won’t need to worry about it destroying the feeder – it’s incredibly durable.

Key Features:

  • 3 chambers for 3 seeds types
  • Comes 100% assembled
  • 2 perches and seed trough

Cost: Est. $30

35. Perky-Pet 339 Squirrel Be Gone II Feeder Home with Chimney

Perky-Pet 339 Squirrel Be Gone II Feeder Home with Chimney

Current Rating: 4.0

This feeder relies on the weight of the squirrel to close the port before it can get any seed. You can pretty much always find a determined squirrel that will outsmart these, though, and this is no different. If they hang upside down and don’t put weight on the cage – just on the lid – the ports don’t close. The manufacturer offers a few tips: safflower seed, baffles, shepherd’s hooks, etc. But even if the Mission Impossible squirrels are hanging from the top, they probably won’t be able to reach the lower seed ports, at least. So you’ll still be able to feed some birds.

Key Features:

  • 1-touch open lid for refills
  • 1.5-lb seed capacity
  • Weight sensitive ports close for squirrels

Cost: Est. $30

36. Perky-Pet 363R Red Sparkle Lantern Bird Feeder

Perky-Pet 363R Red Sparkle Lantern Bird Feeder

Current Rating: 4.0

This classically designed bird feeder is a wonderful addition to your yard or porch. The windows are screen printed and the perches are a U shape that allows birds to fit more comfortably. The Sure-Lock will keep squirrels from the top, and the powder-coated sparkle finish will prevent weather damage.

Key Features:

  • 2 color choices
  • 3-lb seed capacity
  • Sure-Lock cap system

Cost: Est. $20

37. Perky-Pet Super Carousel Wild Bird Feeder

Perky-Pet Super Carousel Wild Bird Feeder K-351

Current Rating: 4.1

This feeder features a roof that doubles as a baffle and protection from the elements. The 8 seed ports each have a perch, and all are shielded by the clear plastic baffle – that way your view of the birds eating won’t be impaired. The manufacturer recommends placing the feeder 10-12 feet from large trees or your house to further ensure squirrels are deterred.

Key Features:

  • 16″ baffle
  • 8-lb seed capacity
  • Screw-off cap for easy refills

Cost: Est. $100

38. RenimelProject – Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

RenimelProject - Squirrel proof bird feeder with 4 Feeding Ports

Current Rating: 4.7

This bird feeder is made of an eco-friendly spruce wood, and as such will be an elegant and functional decoration for your yard. You may need to also purchase a baffle if the squirrels are too involved, but the roof itself is also made of solid wood and therefore cannot be lifted by an ordinary squirrel.

Key Features:

  • 6″H x 9.2″L x 8.4″W
  • 4 seed ports
  • Made with all natural spruce wood

Cost: Est. $25

39. Roamwild PestOff Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder Mixed Seed Sunflower Heart Version

Roamwild PestOff Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder Mixed Seed Sunflower Heart Version

Current Rating: 4.1

This bird feeder takes the same concept used by other feeders and amplifies its effectiveness by using high-quality materials. The seed ports will be weighed down and closed by large birds and squirrels while smaller birds will have free reign of the feed. These ports, however, are made of heavy-duty metal that will not break and will stand up to any frustrated squirrels and crows.

Key Features:

  • Weather guard and baffle included
  • 3-lb seed capacity
  • Weight sensitive feed ports

Cost: Est. $40

40. Stokes Select Double Suet Bird Feeder

Stokes Select Double Suet Bird Feeder with Metal Roof Two Suet Capacity

Current Rating: 4.6

If you use suet cakes, you’ll enjoy a different variety of bird and an ease of maintenance that’s ideal for those of us who are often too busy to refill the bird feeder daily (or more). This particular feeder is squirrel-resistant and all metal, so even your most spastic squirrel won’t damage it. The suet cakes are difficult for squirrels to access in this cage, and some reviewers have claimed that after weeks of trying one particularly persistent squirrel did figure out how to open it. One twist tie fixed that problem without fail, though.

Key Features:

  • Holds 2 suet cakes
  • Made of powder-coated metal
  • Double-locking feature

Cost: Est. $15

41. Stokes Select Mini Mesh Screen Bird Feeder with Metal Roof

Stokes Select Mini Mesh Screen Bird Feeder with Metal Roof Green 12 lb Seed Capacity

Current Rating: 4.5

This all-metal bird feeder is rust-proof with its powder coating, and the birds will be protected from the elements with its weather guard. The guard is wide enough to be a smallish baffle, but the primary barrier for squirrels is the Twist Lock top and bottom that make it virtually impossible for them to open it. The mesh wire can be damaged by your particularly rage-filled squirrels, so you may want to consider taking other measures as well (safflower seed, garden hook, larger baffle).

Key Features:

  • Twist-lock bottom
  • Weather guard/Baffle
  • Powder-coated metal construction

Cost: Est. $15

42. Stokes Select Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

Stokes Select Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder with Four Feeding Ports 93-Inch Diameter 1 lb Seed Capacity

Current Rating: 4.2

This bird feeder has a built-in pole socket should you wish to place it on a pole and a hook on the top should you want to hang it. Whichever way you choose, you’ll really only have to decide based on your preference of aesthetics because this cage will prevent squirrels from stealing your seed without needing any additional deterrents like shepherd’s hooks.

Key Features:

  • 4 seed ports
  • 1-lb seed capacity
  • 9.3″ W x 17.4″ H

Cost: Est. $50

43. The Nuttery NT056 Round Seed Feeder, Mini

The Nuttery NT056 Round Seed Feeder Mini

Current Rating: 3.8

This is a good bird feeder for if you either have only a few birds that you see in your neighborhood or you genuinely don’t mind refilling it frequently. It only holds about a half pound of seed, but because this feeder is so thoroughly protected in its cage, you won’t have to worry about restocking as a pesky squirrel depletes your seed store.

Key Features:

  • 2 seed ports
  • Approx 1/2 pound seed capacity
  • 6.7″ H x 8.3″ W x 8.3″ D

Cost: Est. $15

43. Varicraft Avian Mixed Seed Feeder

Varicraft Avian Mixed Seed Feeder Model AV-1MNP

Current Rating: 4.3

This bird feeder is a perfect choice if you want to feed only songbirds and not the larger birds or squirrels. The cage surrounding this feeder is a very durable metal, and several reviews comment on how heavy it can be, especially when filled. Not only is the metal heavy, but it will hold 3 gallons of feed, making it quite heavy indeed. This is one you may want to take the seed to, not the other way around. And an average garden hook will very likely bend under the weight, so plan accordingly.

Cost: Est. $95

45. Wild Bill’s 8 Station Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

Wild Bills 8 Station Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

Current Rating: 4.1

This is your be all, end all squirrel-proof bird feeder. But be aware – this isn’t for the animal lovers. This is for the people fed up with the squirrel thieves. It sends a small jolt of electricity to the squirrels but leaves the birds safely un-shocked. You have to touch both the ledge and the perch to be shocked, so a bird wouldn’t feel a thing, and the shock is enough to keep the squirrels away but not enough to cause any damage.

Key Features:

  • Shocks squirrels
  • 12″W x 24″H
  • Requires 9V battery

Cost: Est. $125

46. Wild Bird Seed Feeder Outdoor Decorative Garden Metal Hanging Food Dome Mesh House

Wild Bird Seed Feeder Outdoor Decorative Garden Metal Hanging Food Dome Mesh House

Current Rating: 3.9

This feeder will prevent any raiding squirrels from getting into it via the lid. The lid and bottom are both twist-off which makes them virtually impossible for a squirrel to remove. Like all feeders, for the sake of birds’ health, it will need to be cleaned regularly, but as one reviewer noted, also because otherwise the seeds may begin to sprout.

Key Features:

  • Steel construction
  • 4-lb seed capacity
  • 7.75″ D x 12″ H

Cost: Est. $15

WildBird Care Wood Upside Down Suet Bird Feeder BCF2A

Current Rating: 4.1

There are two factors in this feeder’s ability to deter squirrels. The first being that the feeder holds suet cakes, which are not ideal eating for a squirrel, but the biggest reason is that to access the seeds, the squirrel will need to find a way to trapeze down and hang upside down while it tries to tear apart a suet through a metal grate. Most reviewers claim they’ve never seen a squirrel get to the seed at all.

Key Features:

  • Metal grate and wood construction
  • Holds 2 suet cakes
  • Easy slid- open roof for refills

Cost: Est. $15

48. Woodlink Absolute II Squirrel Resistant Bird Feeder

http://amzn.to/2hyug8f

Current Rating: 4.5

This bird feeder allows you to adjust the weight sensitivity to make sure the critters you want fed have access to the feed you put out and the creatures you don’t want fed will not. So you can adjust both sides to allow only small birds access, or you can adjust it so large birds can partake as well. The locking top will ensure that even if the squirrel turns his attention to accessing the whole stockpile, he’ll be getting nowhere with that plan, either.

Key Features:

  • Hang via included pole mount or zinc plated hanger
  • 12-lb max seed capacity
  • Adjustable, weight-sensitive closing feed trough

Cost: Est. $75

Woodlink Kay Home ProductS 14-Inch Wrap Around Squirrel Baffle Bird Seed

Current Rating: 4.1

This isn’t a feeder, but an accessory that will turn any feeder into a squirrel-proof bird feeder. You can secure it to the pole above or below the feeder with a screwed-on coupler, snap together, and that is all you’ll need to do before installation is done.

Key Features:

  • 14″ wrap
  • Textured powder-coated steel construction
  • Snaps together for install on a 1/2″ to 1 – 3/8″ diameter pole

Cost: Est. $20

50. Woodlink MINIMAG1 Mini Magnums Sunflower Screen Feeder

Woodlink MINIMAG1 Mini Magnums Sunflower Screen Feeder

Current Rating: 4.3

This bird feeder’s lid is a slide-off that is secured to the hanger so a squirrel will not be able to simply knock it off. The weather shield or lid at the top is wide enough to deter some squirrels, but not all. Luckily, this particular feeder’s mesh is so difficult to maneuver that several reviewers say that even if a squirrel tries, he will only be able to get a few seeds out before giving up. But beware: if your most determined squirrels run off the birds you’re hoping to attract, you may need to take other precautions.

Key Features:

  • Powder-coated durable metal construction
  • Drain holes in seed tray
  • 0.75-lb max seed capacity

Cost: Est. $20
