Brome Squirrel Buster Wild Bird Feeder Review

For bird lovers looking for a feeder to deter squirrels from eating the seeds meant for birds, you may want to consider the Brome 1057 Squirrel Buster Standard Wild Bird Feeder. An excellent bird feeder that keeps squirrels away, this feeder features a weight-based mechanism that closes access to the seed ports when a squirrel climbs on the feeder.

Features:

  • Seed Saver Technology. This feeder is designed with openings at the bottom section of the metal mesh shroud that aligns with the seed tray. These ports allow access for birds to feed on the seeds. However, when a squirrel or some large bird climbs onto the feeder, the weight triggers the shroud down, closing access to the seed. This mechanism blocks unwanted visitors from gaining access to the birdseed without harming them.
  • Negative Grip Tube. Aside from the weight-based closing mechanism to deter squirrels, the Brome 1057 Squirrel Buster Standard Wild Bird Feeder also features a negative grip tube that prevents the squirrels from grabbing the wire hanger with their hind legs to defeat the closing mechanism by hanging down alongside the feeder.
  • 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.
  • Made of 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.
  • The Brome 1057 Squirrel Buster Standard Wild Bird Feeder can also be placed anywhere since it hangs easily with the use of wall brackets, branch hooks or extension hooks. At least a 16-inch clearance around the feeder is advised to prevent squirrels from reaching over to gain access to the seeds from a nearby foothold without actually placing its weight on the feeder preventing the closing mechanism from being triggered.

Pros:

  • Weight-adjustable closing mechanism. The squirrel-proof mechanism is effective in preventing squirrels from gaining access to the birdseed. Although larger birds may also be prevented from gaining access, the weight-based mechanism may be adjusted to accommodate some of 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.
  • It accommodates perch-feeding as well as clinging birds.

Cons:

  • A minor complaint from some users is its relatively small capacity to hold seeds, ringing in at 3/4 quart of seeds (1.5 pounds).

Verdict

The Brome 1057 Squirrel Buster Standard Wild Bird Feeder is a bird feeder worth buying, especially for bird enthusiasts who loves to watch and feed a variety of birds. Its effective squirrel-proof features make it worth considering, especially given its reasonable price.
