The Love Garden Birds premium metal fat ball feeder with guardian cage is hard wearing and strong metal feeder powder coated in an elegant dark green. The metal guardian deters adult squirrels and larger birds(*) whilst allowing smaller birds to feed.

You will find a large 40cm strong metal feeder inside of the guardian cage, this feeder is designed for feeding fat balls, a real favourite of the birds. The lid of the feeder opens easily for filling.  

The included base tray on the guardian can be inverted and will function as a feeder tray to catch any dropped food, the tray has drainage holes to prevent the seed in the tray becoming water-logged (see images). Alternatively the tray can be used in the standard position to allow water to quickly drain away.

The feeder comes with a strong metal hook for hanging.

To clean this feeder mix some mild detergent with water to clean the feeder, we suggest using a cleaning brush and some bird safe disinfectant or cleaner. Make sure that the feeder is fully dry before putting it back together and refilling. View our range of bird hygiene products here.

* A note on squirrel protection, although this feeder is squirrel and large bird proof we cannot guarantee that the most determined squirrels or large birds won’t get inside of the feeder, particularly juvenile squirrels and birds as they are far more agile than the adults.  Birds with particularly long beaks may also be able to access the feeder inside of the guardian.  The bars on these feeders cannot be made smaller to protect from adolescent or red squirrels as this would be unsafe for the birds.

I haven't actually deployed this feeder yet - I only put fat balls out when it gets cold. However, although the spacing of the cage bars is small enough to keep the squirrels out, I suspect it won't work for magpies because the gap between the the cage and the feeder isn't large enough so they'll be able to reach across.
