Feed Birds, Not Squirrels! The X2, squirrel-proof bird feeder, features two way squirrel protection.
� The hinged roof tilts with the weight of a squirrel and closes both ports.
� Two integrated metal perches are spring loaded to close both ports from the weight of a squirrel.
Easy Fill -- All of our feeders are easy to fill with wide openings. Even our tube feeders have wide funnel tops.
Easy Clean -- Removable tops, sides, or bottoms make cleaning easy. Plus, all of our hummingbird feeder bases easily disassemble.
Stay Full Port -- Our feeders keep seed at all the ports even when the seed gets low, thus attracting more birds!
Choose Your Birds -- Select the seed to attract your favorite birds and adjust the perches to fit different sized birds.
over 100 Years in the Birding Industry
Classic Brands LLC is a new, family-owned, company with over 100 years of management and design experience in the birding industry. We are also a company comprised of individuals passionate about birds. We took careful time and consideration to develop quality birding products to bring more birds and more joy into your yard. We asked birders across the country what they wanted in a bird feeder, here's what we learned.
Two major research studies* were conducted to Identify what consumers want in bird feeders. The overall conclusions show that birders want feature-rich feeders that will help to attract more birds to their yard as well as more species of birds. Based on these important findings, we designed a revolutionary line of bird feeders and hummingbird nectars that are better for you and better for birds.

Seed Feeders � Feeders can be either hung from a strong branch/sheppard�s hook or they can be pole or post mounted. In any case, select a location that is near enough to tree/bushes that adequate escape cover (from predators) is accessible for your feeding birds. The feeder should be at least four to five feet from the ground, this will help keep it out of reach from marauding raccoons and other critters. Be careful not to place your feeder too close to large windows, this will help prevent collisions on your windows, and this also allows your birds more escape flight routes when predators show up. Take into consideration where you will be typically viewing your birds from, and this line-of-sight is also important for monitoring the seed/nectar levels in your feeders. If you are planning to photograph your feathered friends while they feed, consider a location where there is at least partial sunlight available.
Hummingbird Feeders � Same as seed feeders, except hang your nectar feeders at least 20ft from your seed feeders. Hummingbirds are very territorial and may attempt to drive off your seed eating birds, if they are too close to your nectar feeders. Also, to keep your nectar cooler & fresher longer, hang your hummingbird feeder where it receives minimal direct sunlight.
Tip: You can plant nectar producing flowers that will also help attract hummingbirds to your feeders.
Once you have selected a location and hung your feeders into position, be patient. It may take a couple of days, or even a week or two, for the birds to discover their new sources of food. If, after two weeks have passed and still no birds at your feeders, try sprinkling a little seed around their hanging locations. Birds use their vision to find food and this technique will help them locate your feeders placed in your lawn or garden. Another way to attract birds to your feeders is to have a water feature/fountain that makes splashing sounds. Wild Birds have exceptional hearing, and the sound of water will draw them in.
