Brome Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder with Cardinal Perch Ring Review

Brome Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder

The Brome Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder with Cardinal Perch Ring was designed to attract cardinals specifically. It has a posi-grip ring system to attract these perennial favorites, which are known to have small necks and big feet.


  • Weight-based closing mechanism. The feeder’s weight-based closing system is set to a default setting of 4 ounces, which is the approximate weight of a small squirrel. Openings located at the bottom of the feeder align with seed ports to provide access to feeding birds. The closing mechanism is triggered when a squirrel climbs onto the feeder, which forces the shroud to go down, which in turn closes the seed ports.
  • Seed Ventilation System. The seed ventilation system allows hot and humid air to escape through vents at the top of the feeder as fresh air enters the seed ports and openings on the bottom of the seed tube. This ensures that seeds remain fresh.
  • Removable Cardinal Perch Ring. The feeder’s posi-grip system has been designed specifically to attract cardinals. Cardinals are known to prefer a thick perch and face their food directly. With these behaviors in mind, the cardinal perch ring system provides cardinals a comfortable feeding experience that is sure to attract them.
  • RoxResin Components. RoxResin ensures that the bird feeder stays waterproof, rustproof, dishwasher safe and UV stabilized. With RoxResin components, the colors are blended into the material itself, thus showing little sign of wear and tear, even after prolonged exposure to the elements and squirrels.
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Can hold up to 3 quarts (6 pounds) of birdseed.


  • The squirrel-proof mechanism is effective in preventing squirrels from gaining access to the birdseed without actually harming them.
  • The RoxResin components ensure a longer-lasting bird feeder highly resistant to changing weather and animal damage.
  • Ventilation ports keep the seeds dry and fresh even during extreme conditions, thus providing a valuable food source for birds all year long.


  • No mesh wire to accommodate clinging birds like the other Brome Bird Feeders.
  • According to some users, they have noted that some birds had trouble getting used to feeding with it because they have to put their heads inside the hole to feed.


The Brome Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder with Cardinal Perch Ring is easy to use and quite effective against deterring squirrels. Although on the more expensive end of the spectrum of bird feeder, with the features it has and the high quality components it is made of, it is priced reasonably if you want to have a feeder that can be used for a long time.

The seed ventilation system is great for making sure that seeds don’t rot, and if you’re not keen on cardinals you can remove the ring too.

All in all it’s a great purchase that can bring some sweet birdsong to your garden.
