Squirrel Resistant Suet Palace 11" x 9.5" x 6" high
I actually bought this item in hopes of keeping the larger black birds from devouring the suet, and it works! While providing cover, it allows all types of woodpeckers and small birds to enjoy the suet without having to deal with the bullies.

Loved the first, buying another.
I've had my first for at least 2 years and am very pleased with the fact that squirrels have stayed away (except for the occasional small red squirrel) but many varieties of songbirds and woodpeckers flock to it. It did take a week or two for all of the birds to familiarize themselves with the double-cage style.
When squirrels bent open the top of a standard hanging suet feeder recently, I wanted to replace it with this exact model. Didn't remember where it was purchased so searched the bigger online retailers and found several similar models. From the pictures, they didn't seem to be made as well - using clips instead of being welded together. Searched some more and found exactly what I wanted at Drs. F&S.

Finally Foiled the Squirrels
Love to feed the birds and they love my suet recipe. Unfortunately the squirrels like it at least as much as the birds. Finally we've found our solution. The Squirrel Resistant Suet Palace has been in place and working for about a month. Even our woodpeckers are able to access the suet. The squirrels are finally becoming so frustrated that they've given up. Happy in NC!

As soon as I hung it the chain split at joinings. Nice product but needs to be more stable.
