Stokes Select Squirrel Proof Double Suet Bird Feeder with Metal Roof Review

The Stokes Select Squirrel Proof Double Suet Bird Feeder with Metal Roof is a suet feeder with a difference. Unlike most suet feeders where the suet cake is placed in such a way where the birds have to hang upside down to feed, the Stokes Select Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder allows the birds to feed in an upright position. This attracts a greater variety of birds as not all birds can hang upside down to feed.

This innovative bird feeder was designed by Don and Lillian Stokes who are expert bird watchers with over thirty years of experience. The Stokes Select Squirrel Proof Double Suet Bird Feeder consists of two back to back rectangular metal suet cages encased in a round metal cage with a metal roof. The metal roof keeps the suet dry by protecting it from rain and snow. This bird feeder is designed to attract clinging birds while deterring gray squirrels and larger birds.

If you love to watch the birds feeding but want to keep the squirrels and the larger birds away, then the Stokes Select Squirrel Proof Double Suet Bird Feeder is a great choice. It attracts both the smaller birds like finches, and the medium sized birds like woodpeckers and flickers while protecting against squirrels and the larger “bully” birds. Plus, it gives you the ability to put out two suet cakes, enabling you to feed more birds if needed or to just get a few more days feeding out of your bird feeder.

Thought adept at getting the job done, the Stokes Select Squirrel Proof Double Suet Bird Feeder has one fatal flaw. Fatal to small birds that is. There is a small opening about 1 inch in diameter between the top of the suet cages and the metal roof which allows an adventurous small bird to get into the suet cages for an excellent feeding experience. Unfortunately, those small birds can easily get stuck in this space without a way of getting out. Unless the bird is found in time, it can die, a very unwelcome experience for the bird enthusiast.

In order to prevent this unfortunate mishap, it is recommended that one finds a way to cover up this tiny opening. Although No bird feeder is perfect and small squirrels may still get into the feeder, but this one comes pretty close.
