Grande Squirrelproof Feeder 9.25" dia x 16" tall
I am ordering this bird feeder again. I like it a lot but it certainly is not squirrel-proof. I have yet to find a squirrel-proof bird feeder and I've given up. Squirrels are extremely smart animals and they are acrobats. They can figure out how to get what they want; just give them some time! It used to drive me crazy but not any more. I just let them eat. Eventually, they get full. It's not going to stop me from feeding the birds! Thank you for your great products!

This feeder has a nice design.
The feeder works well at keeping squirrels out, however, I have issues with grackles and other black birds are impossible to keep away. Otherwise it's good.

Holds more seed than most tube feeders
I had another tube feeder for a year or two, but the birds ate all the seed in a couple of days. This feeder holds almost twice as much seed.
The red sqirrels can get in, but I have a twirl a squirrel thing that spins the feeder when it detects the squirrels weight. For some reason the cardinals won't go inside. They eat the seed on the bottom. Blue jays also hold onto the side and eat from the bottom. They also cause the feeder to spin. So far the birds seem to love it and I don't have to fill it as often.

For larger birds only
The feeders openings are too large and some (3) nuthatches ended up going in the feeder when the seed level dropped below the opening.
They then got caught inside and did not survive.
Good feeder for larger birds.
