I bought this feeder last week at Home Depot thinking it was true to it's name... Squirrel Stumper. It is not true to its name. It took them a few days but they figured out if they hang by their feet they can eat the seeds. This past weekend we changed the hanger to a very small wire and thought for sure they wouldn't figure it out. It took a couple days but again they did it. I have seen them fall off a bunch of times while trying but not after eating seeds for awhile. Today I was lucky enough to snap a picture of the squirrel hanging by his feet... if you want to see a picture you can go to the review that i wrote on my website. http://www.curiousdaisy.com/wordpress/2012/03/perky-pet-squirrel-stumper/

Thank you for your online review! As you have experienced protecting your birdfeeder from squirrels can be an endless battle for many backyard birdfeeders like yourself. Using a caged feeder like the Perky-Pet® Squirrel Stumper is one way to protect your feeder from damage. You can also try spring loaded feeders like the Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone™ Wild Bird Feeder (model 336). When squirrels attempt to feed from these feeders their weight will close the feeder ports.
To avoid these pests from accessing your feeder often times a more holistic approach is needed. Try hanging your feeder 10 feet from the nearest squirrel launching site and at least 5 feet off of the ground.
We hope you have found these tips helpful. If you have questions or need assistance please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
I bought this product around a month ago at home depot in-store for about ten bucks. it's hanging in the backyard off of a metal shepherd's hook garden stake, perhaps 3-4' from the fence, and thus far I haven't seen any squirrels on it. I'd chalk some of that up to the deterrent powers of my lightning-fast whippets, but I still get plenty of bunnies and chipmunks enjoying the banquet under the feeder, so maybe not. I bought a squirrel baffle at the same time, and haven't bothered to use it (planning on returning it, as it cost $5 more than the feeder).
this thing holds tons of seed and has 4 ports midway down the tube and another 4 at the base, so plenty of birds can feed at one time. the bottom of the metal outer cage is capped with a narrow metal dish, forming a saucer that a lot of the seed pools in - most birds seem to prefer picking out their fave seed type from the dish rather than the ports. the clinging birds do great with the cage, and the perching birds grip the edge of the dish fine, so everyone is happy. it's lightweight and the central tube is made of clear hard plastic, so I'm sure it will cloud up or crack in years to come, but it was ten whole dollars, so it's ok to think of it as a one- or two-season item.
it took about a week for any birds to find the feeder (never had one before), but there's enough birds there now that i keep binoculars by the back porch door because i need them non-stop. I'm using an "eastern regional seed blend", and today I've seen cardinals, white breasted nuthatches, 3 different sparrow types, siskins, house finches, and a tufted titmouse eating at this feeder. the house sparrows are messy, flinging seed out of that narrow metal dish, so I've also seen a chubby-cheeked chipmunk, more cardinals, and mourning doves foraging underneath it.
