Looking for a fun and entertaining way to feed birds, not squirrels?
When a squirrel tries to gain access to the feeder, the spinning action then gently tosses the squirrel off before it can devour your seed supply.
The Feeder is calibrated to support the weight of even large birds like cardinals and woodpeckers but is immediately activated by squirrels. With less competition from squirrels, birds wont be able to resist stopping by for a visit! With four feeding ports and a circular perch, multiple birds can dine at the same time, and you can enjoy a better view.
Tube bird feeder holds up to five pounds of birdseed and has four feeding ports
The feeders squirrel-proof design ensures less seed waste, which means money saved and fewer messes on the ground. Plus, the large 5 lb seed capacity ensures you wont have to worry about birds emptying your feeder too quickly during peak feeding times. Convenient internal baffles also help to keep seed flowing freely to the ports as birds feed.
Bird feeder is constructed of heavy duty metal base and cap. The seed tube is UV-stabilized polycarbonate and wont fade
Cleaning and filling is an effortless process thanks to the feeders convenient design. This feeder features a lift-off lid and wide-mouth seed reservoir so you can easily get to every nook and cranny. We recommend cleaning the feeder at least every two weeks and regularly checking the seed to ensure it is free of insects and mold.

A variety of birds use the Bird Feeder, including cardinals, chickadees, finches, flickers, goldfinches, grackles, grosbeaks, jays, juncos, kinglets, nuthatches, redpolls, siskins, sparrows, starlings, titmice, towhees, woodpeckers, and wrens. The Flipper works with mixed seed, peanut chunks, safflower seed, sunflower kernels, and cracked corn, though it works best with sunflower seeds, a favorite of almost every backyard feeder bird.
When you receive the feeder, hang the feeder from its looped bail wire, and prepare to be amazed (and entertained!). It is connected to the weight activated perch ringCbirds will not set it off, even larger species like woodpeckers and cardinals. But the minute a squirrel hops onto the perch, it 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. Its a humanitarian way to deal with persistent squirrelsCthere are no shocks or poisons to hurt them, simply a wild ride that they wont 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.CAriel Meadow Stallings

Homes with bird feeders attract more birds and contribute to sustaining the local ecosystem. By building quality feeders and offering feeder replacement parts, TheSquirrel-Proof Bird Feeder strives to keep its feeders in yard and out of landfills.
Want to learn how to create super fancy and old-fashioned wax seals? It’s easy! Here’s everything you need to learn how to use a wax seal.
You absolutely love wax seals, but you don't know how to make them, or what you need to do it. Fear not, wax seals are simple and we are going to take you through proper planning Ag, products, process, and perfecting to make sure your wax seals are absolute envelope show-stoppers.
STEP 1: PREP
Once you light the wick on your wax stick, things will move quickly. So make sure you’re ready! Get your envelope in front of you, attach your seal head to the handle, and grab your lighter.
STEP 2: LIGHT
Light your tea-light or candle.
STEP 3: MELT
Add three or four wax beads into your spoon and hold about an inch above the flame. Don’t put the spoon directly in the flame because you will get a black sooty residue on the underside of the spoon, which might end up in the wax. Hold the spoon over the flame for a minute or two until the beads have all melted.
STEP 4: POUR
Pour the contents of your spoon over the lip of the envelope, getting as much onto the paper as possible. Set spoon aside (but mind that it’s still hot).
STEP 5: STAMP
Check that your stamp is oriented correctly. Then push the stamp into the pool of wax, taking care to get wax excess all around the stamp.
STEP 6: REST AND REMOVE
Allow the wax to cool for 5~7 seconds or so, then gently pull the stamp away to reveal your wax seal.
DON’T FORGET TO CLEAN UP
If you want your materials to last, then you need to make sure to properly clean all of your tools. Cleaning a wax seal set can be a bit tricky, so make sure to check out how to clean a wax seal spoon.

Process, step by step to beautiful wax seals
Now comes the fun part, actually making your wax seals. We recommend gathering all your supplies before you start, and clearing your workspace as sealing can be messy. To get started, chill your wax stamp on ice, and make sure you have a silicone mat to place your spoon or sealing wax gun down on.
Wipe the head of your wax stamp off with a microfiber cloth or your palm, then press into sealing wax. Leave for 5 - 10 seconds then gently peel your stamp away. If it sticks, allow more time to cool. If there is a lot of sticking, try letting your sealing wax cool a bit before stamping.
