Squirrel Shield Bird Feeder is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Squirrel-proof...cuz the seeds get stuck and won't come out. Off the bat, let me say that this feeder seems well-made and sturdy. The problem I have with it is its usefulness. I put regular bird seed in this feeder, and at first the birds seemed to use it readily enough. Then I noticed they weren't visiting it anymore. Upon inspection, I discovered that the ports are so small that sunflower seeds (even without the shell) cannot pass through. So now each port is jammed up with stuck sunflower seeds. Millet and other small seeds work ok, but the stuff the birds REALLY want (sunflower seeds) render it useless. I will try it with just thistle and see how that works, but that's not the use I had in mind with this feeder. I'm disappointed because this isn't a particularly cheap feeder, so I expected it to be more all-purpose. The labeling doesn't indicate that it's for thistle only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good design, keeps squirrels out This feeder replaced an older tube style feeder with 6 openings but no squirrel protection. The design of the openings is superior in this product in that it keeps rain from getting the seed wet and squirrels cannot simply gorge themselves. The downside is that it is a bit small and for some reason, birds have not returned after the seed level went below the top 2 openings. Not sure if that is the birds being picky though. Also, the feeder is really geared toward smaller birds, as the perches are only one size and the openings are small due to the squirrel shields.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Was Proven Wrong. It Does work. I have several feeders in my yard. So many that I had to go to the HOA for approval. The squirrels eat everything, including the feeders and break most of them in a season. I have switched to feeders that are have metal perches that bolt to the perch on the opposite side as the squirrels can tear off the perch. This feeder arrived with a perch fallen off in shipping, but was very easy to put back on. I thought for sure the squirrels would take it back apart in no time. Not only was I wrong, but this design has slowed down their feeding very well. They used to empty a feeder in 2 days, but now, over a week and food is still there for the birds. I highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only Small Birds Allowed This piece a'junk allows for only small to tiny birds to feed from it. Even Cardinals are too scared to try it out. That's a good thing for small birds I suppose. I don't want anything crazy like crows/ravens/eagles to eat from it, but I expected it to be big enough from Cardinals. The holder only allows tiny seeds to be pulled out by tiny birds (sunflower seeds and corn pieces are out of the picture...or risk small birds not being able to pull seeds out). If small birds eating small seeds are what you're looking for, then go for it...and it prevents crafty squirrels from getting to the seeds. I see it as a very limiting feeder, so I don't recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bird Feeder We currently have many bird feeders keeping our featherd friends very happy. Of course the squirrels are in competition to get at the food. NOT WITH THESE FEEDERS! No matter how hard they try they can not get the food out with their sharp claws or tip the feeder on it's side to let the seeds fall out. I was pleased that the birds took to the feeder almost immediately. We love the three different chambers that can hold three different seeds to keep everyone happy. The plastic is thinner than other feedres. Not sure how many squirrel attacks and winters it will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Finch Favorite My family enjoys backyard birding so we like to try out different bird feeders. This one is made of a metal cap and ports and an acrylic tube. The metal cap is secured to the hanging wire so that it slides up and down for easy re-filling. I liked that none of the black-oil sunflower seeds spill out from the ports when I fill up the bird feeder, and the two vertical slits in each port prevents larger birds or squirrels from accessing the seeds. Even though we have already have a finch feeder, the American Goldfinches and House Finches in our yard seem to prefer this feeder. One downside is that the bottom two ports are not parallel with the top two ports, as shown in the photo, but I don't know if that was intentional in the design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A squirrel's worst nightmare This Perky-Pet Squirrel Shield Bird Feeder has feeder port guards that are pretty cleverly designed-- the local wrens and finches can easily enjoy a snack, but a squirrel would be stymied if it tried to get at the feeder's tasty contents. The guard on each port appears to be large enough to distribute the seeds to birds, but is designed such that a squirrel can't get his snout in far enough to swipe the seeds. That guard, coupled with a metal overhang, prevents the ravenous rodents from ever getting a meal. And I noticed the design also helps prevent a lot of seed dropping/loss from wind, or hungry birds. The only negative I see in this feeder is the thickness of the acrylic tubing-- it's awfully thin, barely enough bulk to withhold the weight of the beefy, well-made ports. That said, I'd still recommend it.
