SUET-LOVING BIRDS

The need for clearance

Remember it’s the squirrel’s weight that triggers the closing mechanism. If a squirrel can reach over from a nearby foothold and avoid placing weight on the feeder, he will have access to the seed ports. Allow for at least 18 inches or 47 cm of clearance around the feeder. This will force the squirrel to climb onto the feeder, thus triggering the closing mechanism.

Locating your feeder

You can locate this bird feeder anywhere and be squirrel free. Position it to get great close-up views of your favorite birds. Hang your feeder over a window, in a tree, on a deck, a fence, in your garden, on the side of your house, from a rain trough or over sliding doors. Use brackets, extension hooks and tree hooks to hang your feeder at the recommended clearance. Hooks and brackets are available at birding stores, garden centers and hardware supply stores. Your feeder prevents squirrels from eating expensive seed, scaring the birds and damaging your feeder. Enjoy being free of squirrel problems, but please remember, squirrels also need to eat. For the price of a few peanuts, or inexpensive cracked corn, squirrels will be happy to entertain.

Fantastic feeder & customer service

★★★★★
I’ve had my feeders for about 10 years and they work perfectly. I just had one that needs a new part. I called customer service and spoke to Sandra-Lee She was extremely helpful and couteous. She ordered my new part with no issues. These feeders have a tremendous warranty on them and the company stands behind there product. I highly recommend them!

New Suet Feeder a Great Investment

★★★★★
I have two of the Brome Squirrel-Proof Plus Feeders (the best feeders I have ever used) and added the new Brome Squirrel-Proof Suet Feeder in the middle. I happen to really like this new suet feeder. It is easy to load, I always know the exact amount of suet left on both sides of the feeder from inside my warm house, it is much easier than wooden feeders to thoroughly clean and disinfect, and there is no suet mess on your hands or in the sink when adding new cakes. As mentioned in several reviews, it took the birds a few tries/minutes to find the feeder and get the “hang” of it. Since then, it had been bird central with multiple varieties of diners. In Maine, our birds figure out how to get suet wicked fast because they need the extra fat to survive (it has been below zero lately). All of the birds, especially the larger woodpeckers, really appreciate the extra room and clever grasping areas this feeder provides for them to get a good grip and easily access the suet. They always struggled on regular square wire feeders. This is a huge favorite of many neighborhood woodies. There is usually a very small piece of suet left on one side when I clean and change the suet cakes. I drop that on the ground and birds or squirrels enjoy it the next morning. As with this feeder, I highly recommend any Brome products. I have been a Brome customer for many years. Similar to all items of outstanding quality, they are an investment and I value them. Plus, if I ever have a question, idea or concern, they listen and quickly make it right. On a very sad note, my neighbors (from away) recently purchased a beautiful house on a rare 14-acre oceanfront lot with old growth (100-plus year old trees). At great expense, they are now cutting down most of these spectacular treasures to make room for a greenhouse and garden center. It is tragic and insane. Why not buy a field? Every day, as they clear additional trees, more and more birds and squirrels are now terrified and homeless at the worst time of the year. I am adding more feeders along that side of my yard to try and save as many as I can by providing seeds, fruit, nuts and suet. They are also adapting very quickly to the suet feeders which are very popular. Based on my purchases alone, I would encourage you to invest in Brome. I am sure my children will understand why I spent their inheritance on feeders and feed. Right? After all, they will inherit the feeders in my will.

Mangeoire à suif merveilleuse !

★★★★★
Mes oiseaux adorent cette mangeoire (mésanges, sitelles, pics, geais bleu ! Avec l'ajustement du poid contre les écureuils c'est magique! Et un autre avantage et non le moindre... plus d'étourneaux qui dévorent le suif et c'est super!

Bird proof too!?

★★☆☆☆
2 stars for the excellent quality of construction - but no stars for the complete lack of interest the birds have in eating from it. They used to devour suet from an open cage (as did the squirrels) but they have little to no interest in suet since we installed this feeder. Any tips?
- John Taylor

Thanks for your review! We are truly sorry it's not working for you. What we are learning is that the quality of the suet really matters. Please try cakes that have no millet or milo in them.
