Squirrel Proof

Having a few families of squirrels nearby I only use the Squirrel Buster Feeder. They do a great job. Not absolutely 100% because the clever squirrels know that if they hit the feeder a few sunflower hearts will be thrown out. A small price to pay for the 99% protection.

I'm so pleased to hear it's working well! That's great news.

They’ve gone

I waited a while before commenting, at first the squirrels found all sorts of ways to hang upside down to get the nuts without triggering the closure mechanism . However they clearly got frustrated and I haven’t seen a squirrel for 3-4 weeks now. Someone else must be making it easier for them! I do have endless little birds enjoying their superior food though.

I’m really pleased to hear it’s working so well! That’s fantastic! Thank you for the lovely review!

Bird feeder that works.

A well made, unique design and value for money seed bird feeder that exceeds the norm.

I’m so happy to hear that you’re so pleased with the feeder! Thank you for the lovely review!

Squirrel Buster almost has Parakeets fooled!

…I realise it is not called a Parakeet buster, but the weight adjustment has allowed me to initially keep Parakeets from monopolising at least one of our bird feeders, but the battle continues...

Thank you for your honest review! I hope we can save some food from the parakeets!

Squirrel Buster Really Does Work

We live in West London and love seeing the small birds that visit our garden and have a range of feeders. However, we also suffer from a large population of grey squirrels which manage to get into the feeders via fair means and foul!!

I saw The Little Bird Company at Chelsea Flower Show for the first time thgis year and had a long conversation with a very helpful person and decided to buy the Squirrel Buster feeder. It was delivered about 10 days later, in perfect condition, very nicely packaged. We put the feeder up and yes, it does stop the squirrels getting the food - what a very clever design it is. However, we also suffer from Parakeets who were able tyo get in. However, my husband has now adjusted the tension to the lowest level and we think it is also Parakeet proof. We are still waiting to make sure but hopefully you will soon be able to say Squirrel and Parakeet Proof. Many thanks, Rosanna

Thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm so pleased to hear that the Squirrel Buster is proving to be parakeet and squirrel proof and that the little birds in your garden are getting a chance to eat!

A little bird co are fantastic!

Clare is wonderful and so knowledgeable and helpful. I have now met her twice at the Chelsea Flower Show and she is warm and approachable and knows her products and helping birds/ wildlife so well. She kept me updated on my order when I pestered her too- brilliant service!

The Squirrel buster bird feeder is the only feeder to have in my opinion- not only does it stop the squirrels pinching bird food (I don't mind feeding them separately!), it is very well made and looks nice in the garden. Fully recommend.

What kind words - thank you so much for supporting my small business and for your lovely compliments! Brilliant to hear that the Squirrel Buster is such a huge success in your garden too!

Happy Birds

Wow. This 'no big bird' feeder along with your bird food has proven a massive hit in our garden. So many small birds. So much food eaten so fast!

Hooray! I’m so happy to hear, that’s excellent news! You’ve made my day! Thank you for the photo too.

Best squirrel proof feeder so far…

I love this feeder and the mischievous squirrels in my garden are frustrated not being able to get to the bird food.
The birds however are loving it.
I was so pleased with this feeder that I bought a second one for my mum to use in her garden and she is thrilled with it too

I’m so pleased to hear how well it’s working in your garden - it looks so lovely in the photo. Great to hear that the birds are getting a chance to eat, and so happy that your mum loves it too. I really appreciate you ordering from me and taking the time to post a review!

Best feeder for deterring the squirrels

Easy to fill and to adjust the required firmness against the larger birds. Top marks.
Very prompt delivery with an interesting free sample of seed.

I’m so pleased to hear that the bird feeder is working well to deter the squirrels in your garden! Thank you for your kind words.

Great bird feeder

Very thorough instructions for a novice bird watcher like me , the food which came with the feeder has gone but I haven’t seen any birds feeding on it when I have been at home. The bird feeder seems etc easy to maintain and clean

I’m so pleased to hear that you’re pleased with the feeder, doesn’t it look great in your garden! Glad to help.
