Keep your feathered friends well-fed with the Yankee Flipper squirrel-proof bird feeder.
The four feeding ports are easily accessible via the perch ring, and the interior of the chamber is designed to direct seed into the seed ports. Birds will not set it off, not even larger species like Woodpeckers and Cardinals. But the minute a squirrel hops on to the perch, the motor is triggered and the feeder begins spinning, taking the squirrel for a whirl before it loses its grip and is thrown gently from the perch.
Seed tube is generous in height, making it impossible for squirrels to hang down from the top reach seed
Heavy metal cap fits snugly on the tube to prevent squirrels from lifting it to reach the seed
Clear feeder tube makes the seed visible to the birds, a proven advantage
Made of UV stabilized polycarbonate, it ensures long lasting durability without yellowing
Large 5 lb. capacity, you don't need to refill your feeder every day
Hang the Flipper securely from its heavy duty signature looped stainless steel wire which reduces motion

In 1960, Peter Kilham and his boyhood friend Alan Bemis started Droll Yankees® for the purpose of making talking records of old New England. But both men enjoyed swapping yarns and the humor of Down East Maine. They wanted their business name to include the word Yankees. As Peter told the story, he was living in Providence at the time, and went to the Brown University library. There he started flipping through the card catalog, looking for something he could pair with Yankees. When he came to Balzac’s Droll Stories, he stopped.
Peter and Alan’s recorded stories enjoyed only limited success. But Peter had always been an amateur naturalist - along with artist, inventor, and entrepreneur - so with the equipment they had acquired for their talking stories, he started making nature recordings, with the goal of creating a Picture in Sound.
As an artist and inventor, Peter worked on many interesting projects. One of the jobs he had done resulted in leftover plastic tubing scraps. One Sunday when watching the birds, he thought of using this tubing to create a new type of bird feeder. A few minutes in his workshop produced a simple prototype made out of plastic and cardboard, but it was enough to fill with seed and hang in a nearby tree. It was soon filled with birds, and Peter knew he had the makings of a successful product. That prototype was the forerunner of the Droll Yankees A-6F, produced in 1969 as the first tubular bird feeder on the market. It is still one of their best sellers.
Peter cared about using quality materials in innovative designs that birds loved and people found easy to use. At Droll Yankees, they continually strive to maintain those high standards of design and functionality, and they're proud to be recognized as the makers of one of the world's best bird feeders.
