Wild Bills Electronic Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder, 8 portsThe Wild Bills Electronic Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder features a revolutionary design that provides birds with a safe feeding haven while preventing squirrels and raccoons from feeding. Designed with animal training techniques in mind, this feeder provides squirrels and raccoons with a mild electric correction when they attempt to feed but birds are completely safe from the electric correction. Squirrels, raccoons, or other pests large enough to touch two metal contact points will complete the electrical circuit and be provided with a mild electric correction (i.e. standing on the feeder tray and touching the perches). Birds' feathers are such poor conductors that birds may feed without the worry of a correction. A convenient on/off switch allows the feeder's electronic system to be disabled for cleaning or refilling.
The feeder has a huge 10 quart (2.5 gallon) seed reservoir that will reduce the number of trips you make outside to fill the feeder. The clear plastic feeder reservoir is UV treated. The 8 feeding stations have individual perches designed by an ornithologist for maximum feeding comfort. The 11" aluminum metal tray catches seed to prevent waste and is equipped with drainage holes. The large 15" feeder dome protects the seed from the elements and may be removed for easy cleaning and filling. This feeder may be hung with the included 15" metal hanger or pole mounted. The electronic system is powered by a single 9-volt alkaline battery (not included). Made in the USA. One year limited warranty.
Note: A Wild Bills Pole Adapter Kit is required in order to pole mount this feeder.

Customer Comment: "Just had to tell you. Hung wb-wb-8 Squirrel Proof Feeder and within hours had a furry one try to dine. The action of this food robber was great as promised. He (or she) went down the hanger and made contact, did a double flip and grabbed for tree branches. Several others have tried with like results. After only four days I see them stop in the tree, examine the feeder and go on their way. This is one poduct that lives up to what is promised. The savings in food is worth the price of the feeder, not mention the entertainment value.
Thanks for a great product."
