Where to Buy
 

January 2009. Reviews say that the Duncraft Squirrel Blocker Selective is a good performer that comes with a lifetime warranty and a moderate price. This stainless steel mesh tube feeder has an additional wrap-around wire grid. It is 16 inches tall, 5.5 inches wide, and holds one quart of seed -- about one third of the capacity of pricier, top-selling feeders like the Brome Squirrel Buster Plus (*est. $75). This means you will have to fill it more often. However, reviews say up to a dozen small birds can perch on the green, vinyl-coated fencing and poke their heads through to feed from the steel mesh tube. Squirrels may cling to the feeder, but they won't be able to access the seed.

One owner applauds the simple, effective design and all-metal construction, saying this feeder attracts woodpeckers, nuthatches, and titmice. Cardinals eat seed that spills on the ground.
