Seed Guide

Every bird species has their own seed preferences. Fill your feeders based on the type of bird you want to attract.

The Perky-Pet Squirrel Stumper Bird Feeder offers a variety of convenient features in one charming package. First, there's the twist-lock lid, which not only removes for easy filling, but also locks in place so sneaky squirrels can't easily open the feeder and steal seed from the top. This feeder also boasts a wire metal cage that creates a barrier around the seed reservoir making it harder for squirrels to gain access to the ports. Plus, the sturdy metal is designed to resist squirrel damage and chewing, as well as resist. In addition to its squirrel-resistant features, the Squirrel Stumper is also a favorite of birds. The whopping eight feeding ports spaced evenly around the feeder provide plenty of room for multiple birds to dine at the same time. And with the 3 lb capacity, you won't have to worry about all those birds emptying your feeder too quickly during peak feeding times. When you do start to run low, the clear seed compartment makes it easy to monitor seed levels, so you know when it's time to clean and refill.

                    by|Jan 9, 2021

                      A:  I have tried to get parts for this style of bird feeder, but have not been able to find them. Squirrels are the chief enemy. They gnaw the feeder, and they even gnaw the rope holding the feeder. I had one case where a squirrel gnawed the rope, the feeder dropped, and the plastic parts cracked and broke. Could not find another plastic insert.

                        Answer This Question

                        A:  I have a similar bird feeder and the birds all cling to the wire enclose while eating. It may be the type of food. I use feed with a mixture the includes corn and numerous other foods. It could also be where it is hung. It should be out in the open and hung in a way that squirrels can't get into it. The squirrels get enough from the food that birds scatter on the ground below. Also, if this is your first feeder, give the birds a little time to find it. Some weeks I fill my feeder every 5-7 days while at other times it may last for over 2 weeks.

                        A:  Birds are creatures of habit and can take some time to adjust to a new feeder. If you have any other established feeders in your yard, you may want to remove them temporarily to help the birds adjust a little faster.

                        by|May 30, 2020

                          A:  It takes a while for birds to get use to a new feeder. This is not a squirrel proof feeder.

                              A:  I have yet to find a bird feeder that squirrels can't get into. Sometimes it takes them a day or two, but, they always figure it out. No matter where I've placed this feeder, they will jump 3 feet to attached themselves to it and suck up every seed- while hanging upside down!! Try to put up a long bar, between trees or something else and get some PVC pipe that has a larger diameter and place a piece on each side, if the squirrels can't jump that far, they will try to traverse the bar and get spun off, I've seen others take a 2 liter pop bottle, cut off the ends and use that- thread the bar through the bottles. Good luck!!

                              A:  The squirrels do love it, there's no denying that. I think no matter what feeder you go with, the squirrels will find a way to get the seeds

                              A:  We are sorry to hear about this! You might want to try relocating the feeder away from launching points, or adding some cayenne pepper to the seed to help deter the squirrels. If you are still not satisfied with the feeder, please keep in mind that it is covered by a 30 day return policy.

                                It is very difficult to open the top of the feeder to refill. Definitely not squirrel proof as I am now watching a squirrel hang upside down on the feeder eating seed while also tossing seed down to the other squirrel underneath the feeder. Makes for an entertaining view, though.

                                    We're sorry to hear this! Try and hang your feeder at least twelve feet from any tree trunk or limb and at least four feet up from the ground. This will prevent squirrels from either jumping from the tree or up from the ground onto the feeder. The feeder is covered under a 30-day return policy. Please give us a call at 855-737-5973 for assistance.

                                    Bird's head got stuck in frame
                                    This appears to be a nice, high quality bird feeder. HOWEVER, a small bird in our backyard got it's head stuck in the wire frame while reaching for the hole in the plastic tube where the bird seed is. Luckily I saw this happen. I had to take the bird feeder down, and ultimately after about 10 min of work I was able to move the plastic tube just enough to let up on the bird's neck and it flew away. Very scary! Very disappointed in this bird feeder and will be throwing it away.

                                        As a feeder, it does the job. It does NOT stop squirrels from eating the seeds.

                                        I am sorry to hear of the results! Baffles can be used above or below feeders not considered “squirrel resistant”. In addition, keep in mind squirrels can JUMP! Ideal placement would be at least 12 feet away from any type of launch pad (tree, fence…) and at least 4 feet off the ground.
                                          Kills Birds! Don’t purchase!
                                          Please see this picture and advocate for these feeders to be recalled.

                                            This is a great feeder! Holds lots of seed and the birds love it - so do the squirrels and chipmunks. It is not squirrel or chipmunk proof! Fortunately, I enjoy watching them along with the birds.
