Product Review: My New Favorite Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder

If you’re having issues with squirrels gobbling up your bird seed, one of the best investments you can make is buying a squirrel-proof bird feeder.

I’ve tried several of these feeders recently and I have a new favorite hanging from my apartment balcony – the Squirrel X X7 Squirrel-Resistant Feeder. Read on for my quick review on why I think this feeder is well-worth adding to your yard.

Things I Like About This Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder

  • Most important: It does its job at keeping squirrels out. The feeder is long enough to prevent squirrels from hanging off the top of it to eat seed. The feeding perches are also weight sensitive and will give out if a squirrel tries grabbing it. There are also washers on the top cap to prevent critters from opening it.
  • It’s affordable: My local Menards had it for sale at about $20. It’s listed for $31 on the Squirrel-X brand website. That’s really affordable for a squirrel-proof feeder!
  • It’s a big tube feeder, holding more than four pounds of bird seed at once. I don’t have to refill it that often.
  • The perches are big enough to support Northern Cardinals and Blue Jays (to a degree) that visit my patio.

Things I Don’t Like About This Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder

  • The tube is made of a relatively flimsy plastic.

The Final Rating: 9/10 (Great Investment)

This feeder gets a great score because it’s had a perfect track record (so far) with keeping squirrels out of my bird seed. It’s also an affordable option if you’re getting started.
