WBU Eliminator: Protect your bird seed bounty from squirrels with our Eliminator™ bird feeder. When a squirrel touches the perch ring, its weight closes the seed ports, foiling its seed-stealing plot. The Eliminator’s unique technology allows you to set the sensitivity level, so you can also exclude large birds such as pigeons or doves. The special perch ring allows birds such as cardinals or grosbeaks to eat from a more comfortable position. It is easy to hang and has a large seed capacity.
This feeder also features a special seed ventilation system that helps keep seed fresher and key parts are made from a special chew-proof material to help keep squirrels at bay. The Eliminator can be disassembled and assembled with no tools, and all of its parts are top shelf dishwasher safe. It also comes with a limited lifetime guarantee!
Accessorize: Add an Eliminator Weather Guard to help protect seed from the elements. Use a Pole Adaptor to mount the Eliminator to the top of our Advanced Pole System (APS) instead of hanging from a hook. (Both sold separately).

Bird Baths: Providing your birds with a place to drink and clean their feathers is vital for their health and is an essential addition to any backyard habitat. The birds that visit your feeders will love taking advantage of the water. As an added bonus the birds that don't normally come to your feeders, like American Robins, love to take baths!
Bird bath trays are available in different colours, (clay, green or sandstone), in both 14" and 20" diameters. Metal stands are available for both sizes with short and tall sizes.
