The Yankee Flipper comes with a motor-driven, battery-powered, weight-activated perch ring that expels squirrels when they try to get at the bird seed. When a squirrel steps on the perch, a connection is made with a motor that makes the perch spin, and the squirrel is flipped off the feeder. The unit comes equipped with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium power stick battery and a battery charger that plugs into standard 120 volt wall outlets. Sturdy stainless steel wire hanger will not rust. 21" long tubular feeder with 5 lb seed capacity. Metal cap fits snugly so that squirrels cannot pry it off. 4-1/2" diameter seed tube is made of UV stabilized polycarbonate for durability. Tube is long enough so that squirrels can't hang down from the top and reach seed. Interior is properly baffled to direct seed to the seed ports. Four seed ports are positioned around the tube. Metal parts have a forest green finish.

The Funniest Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder Available
Keep the squirrels at bay with this YF Yankee Flipper from Droll Yankees. Imagine the money you'll save on seed.
The Flipper bird feeder features four feeding ports that are easily accessible via the perch ring. The feeder also comes with a unique mechanism that deters squirrels from accessing the bird seed. Birds will not set it off, not 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.
The Flipper caters to a vast array of beautiful birds. Birds that use the feeder include Cardinals, Chickadees, Finches, Flickers, Goldfinches, Grackles, Grosbeaks, Jays, Juncos, Kinglets, Nuthatches, Redpolls, Siskins, Sparrows, Starlings, Titmice, Towhees, Woodpeckers, and Wrens.
Durable Design with Microban Antimicrobial Technology
Equipped with microban antimicrobial technology, the Flipper bird feeder helps fight the growth of damaging bacteria, mold, and mildew, which means healthier birds and high-quality performance from the feeder, year after year.
The Flipper's clear feeder tube makes the seed visible to birds, a proven advantage. The feeder tube is made of UV-stabilized polycarbonate, which ensures long-lasting durability without yellowing. For added convenience, the generous height of the feeder makes it impossible for squirrels to hang down from the top to reach the feeding ports, and the feeder's heavy metal cap fits snugly on the tube to prevent squirrels from lifting it to reach the seed inside.
Convenience at Its Best
Hang the Flipper securely from its heavy-duty signature-looped stainless-steel wire, which helps to reduce motion that would otherwise spill seed. With a large 5-pound capacity, the bird feeder doesn't need to be refilled every day, and be rest assured that the seeds are flowing freely to all four ports (thanks to the feeder's internal baffle system).
The metal top and base of the Flipper are powder coated in Forest Green for a complementary addition to any yard or garden. With components made in the USA and China, the Flipper carries a lifetime manufacturer's warranty against squirrel damage to the feeder and a one-year limited warranty on the electronics.
Please note: For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean. Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees bird-feeder brush to brush away grime inside the tube.
