Woodlink The Magnet Squirrel Proof Feeder
With squirrels becoming increasingly clever by the day, the folks at Woodlink developed the Magnet Squirrel Resistant Bird Feeder. Unlike other squirrel resistant bird feeders, it does not need batteries, has no motors, and no springs! It is purpose built to attract birds and deter squirrels. Made in the USA, this bird feeder handles the pesky squirrels in a humane and simple way. Each of the 4 die cast metal perches have magnetic weight activated mechanisms that releaes when anything large attempts to use it. This means that squirrels, larger birds, and other pests are quickly without a place to sit! This feeder is wonderful for chickadees, goldfinches, juncos, titmice, siskins, nuthatches, redpolls and many other small birds.
Built to last, the Magnet Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder has a reinforced base, steel hanger, and 2 locking stainless steel washers that help lock the aluminum lid and keep squirrels from tearing it off. Simply lift the washers and lid to refill with your chosen seed. This feeder can hold more than 7lbs of seed.
It is best to hang this feeder at least 15 inches from a tree trunk or mount on a pole to ensure that the mechanism works as intended against squirrels. The idea it to force the squirrel to jump in order to reach the feeder.

Woodlink, The Early YearsWoodlink was founded by James Link Nylen in 1988. The company originally operated out of a moderately-sized warehouse in Mount Ayr, Iowa, but would quickly outgrow that space. By 1996 growing to three locations operating in over 100,000 square feet of warehouse space in Mount Ayr and Winterset, Iowa. Just in time for their 15th anniversary, Woodlink moved into corporate offices in Iowa’s capital city of Des Moines.
The National Audubon Society and Woodlink
In 2002 the company signed an agreement with The National Audubon Society honoring their commitment to high-quality manufacturing. All birdhouses and bird feeders that are N.A.S- approved go through rigorous field testing to ensure they are perfectly sized, designed and sourced to help birds thrive.
Woodlink honored by Hardware Retailers Choice
Still under family leadership, Dave Nylen took the helm as Woodlink’s CEO in 2005. During his first years as CEO, Mr. Nylen built a reputation for innovation and continued support of the birding community. In 2007, the company was honored by Hardware Retailers Choice as “Best of the Best” for their Happy Hour Hummingbird Feeders. The award, which is given to companies demonstrating a commitment to innovation, solidified Woodlink’s position as one of the elite gardening product manufacturers in The United States.
Healthy Planet, Healthy Birds
In 2008, the Going Green line of birdhouses and feeders was introduced. The USA-made line of 90% recycled plastic helped establish Woodlink’s commitment to ecological sustainability for birds and humans alike. A Going Green Bird Feeder uses as many as thirty milk jugs, meaning less plastic goes into landfills each year! The nod to sustainability earned Woodlink a second Hardware Retailers Choice award for the National Audubon Society-endorsed Going Green Bird Feeders.
Woodlink, into the future
Woodlink followed up years of award-winning innovation with a merger in 2011--joining forces with Kay Home Products. The merger allowed the company to expand their already popular product lines into a vast selection of hummingbird feeders, squirrel-resistant products and more. With two USA-manufactured product lines (Going Green Creations and traditional cedar products), access to Kay Home Products vast array of bird-friendly items and a continued commitment to helping birds and the people who help them, Woodlink is poised to continue on as the most trusted brand for backyard bird products for years to come.
