Droll Yankees Yankee Flipper Squirrel Proof Tube Bird Feeder


Offer seed to several bird varieties with this Droll Yankees Yankee Flipper Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder. This fantastically popular feeder perfectly holds plenty of mixed seed for your feathered friends. The lengthy, UV stabilized reservoir holds 3.33 quarts of mixed seed, with 4 ports and a perch ring at its base. This ring has a battery powered rotation that reacts to the weight of a gray squirrel, providing you hours of interesting activity. Once a large squirrel or bird puts its full weight on the perch, an internal motor rotates it, which assists the animal in exiting the feeder. The hardy, die cast metal construction of this base and perch ring matches that of the cap, and the deep green, powder coated finish adds longevity. The snug cap keeps the seed protected from rain, and the powerstick inside the reservoir acts as a diverter, directing feed to the ports. The extra long feeding tube also prevents squirrels from hanging on the lid and grabbing seed, and the clear polycarbonate body keeps feed levels visible. An on/off switch at the base of the unit allows you to operate it only when desired, and an included AC adapter makes recharging the mechanism simple. This multitude of features has made the Yankee Flipper a classic, durable, and favorite addition to bird gardens everywhere. A robust looped, stainless steel top wire makes hanging the piece simple, offering stability and security. Discourage squirrels from dining while adding some fun to your backyard with the Yankee Flipper Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder. Two year limited warranty on feeder. One year limited warranty on motor and battery.

The Yankee Flipper works well to prevent access by grey squirrels; however, red squirrels and chipmunks are not heavy enough to activate the perch ring. If red squirrels are coming to your feeders, we suggest the Yankee Whipper or Yankee Dipper.

    Six squirrels ate my other brand new bird feeder into pieces. Their are tooth marks over the top of the Flipper, but no holes. My worker said he saw a squirrel get thrown off, hit a tree, and fall unconscious for awhile. I had to recharge it after a week, because the squirrels continued to make it turn and ran the battery down. By the second charging, they learned to leave it alone.

    It works! I had one at my last house and it provided many hours of “entertainment”. I just bought one for my mom and she loves it. I will soon be buying another one for my own home. The critters just cannot get into this one and gives them a delightful ride!

  3. Jeff H. (verified owner)

    It works like a charm. The rechargeable feature is nice to have!

  4. Beverly R. (verified owner)

    This feeder is the best you will ever own!!!! Squirrels get NOTHING out of this one no matter how hard they try – and they do try and try and try – I Love It!! Thank You Droll Yankees for the great product!

    We love the feeder but our squirrels are so clever and they love it also. We had to take it down until later in the season, or until we find a different shepherds hook that will hang out farther. They hook their feet onto the pole, and stop the circle, thereby defeating the purpose. This is the second one we have owned. We wore out the other one.

  6. Dan B. (verified owner)

    It keeps just about any critter except raccoons and bears off. This is my third “flipper” and they are worth the expense! I believe they have a lifetime warranty also.

  7. Marilyn H. (verified owner)

    I just love this feeder! All it takes is one time for the squirrels to get thrown off. Now they have to wait till the birds drop seeds to the ground. I really enjoy this item.

  8. Karen C. (verified owner)

    It works great and has lots of birds!

  9. Cindy N. (verified owner)

    It was well worth the money and very entertaining! I now have squirrels who are gymnasts. I don’t think the squirrels are very happy! I would definitely buy another Yankee Flipper.

  10. Richard E S. (verified owner)

    This is the second one I have purchased and I think they are great although they cost a little more then I would like.

  11. Sue K. (verified owner)

    This is the second one I bought! It really works and it’s fun to watch the squirrels flying off!

  12. Bill B. (verified owner)

    excellent..the squirrels after one or two tries learned that they could not beat the system and gave up trying..which allows the birds to eat in peace. I have four other feeders that the squirrels continually eat from and even chew up the plastic container.

  13. Dan N. (verified owner)

    We are so happy with them(2Yankee Flippers) that we got one for each of the in-laws. The amount of seed we saved is amazing.

  14. Kathy D. (verified owner)

    This is a great product. The squirrels stay far away. We are having an odd winter with very few birds around since fir trees are not producing cones this year, they have migrated to where there is food. The birds I do have seem to enjoy it and perch is too small for pigeons to land on — perfect! I was concerned that the battery might not work in cold weather, but it works just fine. Also very easy to charge battery and hang feeder.

  15. Ruth W. (verified owner)

    It really works. It keeps the squirrels and raccoons out.

  16. Carol W. (verified owner)

    Awesome feeder, a much better design than the original Flipper. Easy to clean, holds lots of seed, but would like the feeder to stand on its own to fill. Please fix that flaw and you will get 5 stars from me. Of course, the squirrels have marred the top trying to get in, so let’s go stainless steel, please.

  17. Patricia H. (verified owner)

    Undoubtedly the best bird feeder ever if you have squirrels any where near you. The birds get to feed and the squirrels get the ride of their life. Watched a squirrel one time go around about 25 times. They don’t get hurt and you get real entertainment watching them and the birds.

  18. Carl J. (verified owner)

    This is our third feeder. We love to see it “beat” the squirrels.

  19. Peter H. (verified owner)

    Excellent, exactly as advertised.

  20. E M. (verified owner)

    I can only review from the fact that my parents have one and it keeps those pesky squirrel of the feeder. The tricky part ends up being the weight of the product. My folks are 80 and what they end up doing is only filling it half way up.

  21. M D. (verified owner)

    If you are looking to thwart squirrels, this is the only feeder that works, and I have tried them all.

  22. Ed W. (verified owner)

    This is absolutely the best bird feeder we have ever owned. In addition to the feeder, we purchased a baffle for the pole. The squirrels and raccoons are stymied, and have tried and tried to get to the feeder, to no avail. We haven’t actually seen a squirrel get flipped, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t. The feeder holds a lot of bird seed, so that we don’t have to constantly refill it. We had previously lost a lot of bird seed to the “critters”, but no more. We love the Yankee Flipper.

  23. Mary K. (verified owner)

    I have tried many “squirrel proof” feeders before but this one really works! I’ve had it for a year and the squirrels learn very fast that they will be thrown off, no more hogging the feeder for them. I just bought one for my daughter and she loves it too.

  24. Karen H. (verified owner)

    This is my second Yankee Flipper Feeder – the service was very fast. Would order from again.

  25. Raymond J. (verified owner)

    % stars what more can you say?

  26. Marie L. (verified owner)

    Love it squirrels hate it.

  27. Barbara C. (verified owner)

    Wonderful product! Finally found something to out smart squirrels and worth every penny!

  28. John T. (verified owner)

    Been wanting one of these for some time and finally got it as a birthday gift. Love it, funny to watch the squirrels try and get at the bird feed. Now, the only down side, once it stopped I took it inside to charge and nothing happened. I charged it for 14hrs and it still doesn’t work. Had it six-months so if it’s a battery issue that would be disappointing. Since there is no battery charge indicator it’s hard to tell if it’s the charger or battery.
