Droll Yankees Yankee Flipper Bird Feeder
Squirrels are a constant nuisance for those who love to feed their birds, and the Yankee Flipper is an active answer to this problem. The weight activated motor is triggered by the weight of a squirrel, sending them spinning harmlessly to the ground. This way, you can be sure that your bird seed is saved for actual birds and not a thieving rodent.
- Motor is rechargeable with an included AC/DC adapter
- 4 feeding ports are accessible from the perch ring
- Large 5 pound seed capacity
- An internal baffle design delivers seed to the ports and prevents blockage
- Lifetime warranty against any sort of squirrel damage

This Yankee Flipper squirrel-proof feeder is the ultimate feeder for keeping your feathered friends fed, and the furred fiends hungry. Let’s talk about the basics first. The sturdy polycarbonate feeding chamber is a whopping 4-3/4 inches in diameter and 21 inches long, giving you a break between refills–and ensuring that squirrels can’t hang down from the top to reach seed. The four feeding chambers are easily accessible via the perch ring, and the interior of the chamber is designed to direct seed into the seed ports.
Now, for the fun stuff: The birdfeeder features an encased motor and rechargeable (and replaceable) batteries. When you receive the feeder, simply charge the batteries overnight, hang the feeder from its looped bail wire, and prepare to be amazed (and entertained!). The motor is connected to the weight activated perch ring–birds will not set it off, even larger species like woodpeckers and cardinals. But the minute a squirrel hops onto the perch, the motor is triggered and the feeder begins spinning, taking the squirrel for a whirl before it loses its grip and is thrown (gently) from the perch. It’s a humanitarian way to deal with persistent squirrels–there are no shocks or poisons to hurt them, simply a wild ride that they won’t be inclined to repeat. Birds are free to eat without disruption, and your family will get a kick out of watching squirrels go for their rides. There’s a lifetime warranty on the feeder body and a one-year warranty on the motor and battery charger. –Ariel Meadow Stallings
