13 inch Wire Cage


This wire cage is amazing! It prevents large birds and squirrels from getting your seed. You must have an existing feeder, this cage does not come with one. Openings are 1.5″ x 1.5″ for smaller birds to get in.

Please read the  long description and/or call us with questions about whether the cage is a good fit for your existing feeder, 203-245-9056.


Our 13 inch Wire Cage is built to protect your smaller feeder (12″ or smaller) against squirrels, grackles, starlings, and other big birds. We LOVE this thing. It keeps big birds out, letting the little guys feed unperturbed. And, squirrels don’t stand a chance…

Our wire cage comes with hardware that attaches to your existing 12″ or smaller sized tube feeder base. The base of the cage also serves as a perching plate for the birds.

**Important note: The Wire Cage base must be secured to your feeder base to keep the feeder stable inside the cage. Your feeder must have a 1/2″ threaded hole in the base, such as you would use to attach a feeder tray to. All Aspects® and Droll Yankee® tube feeders have this 1/2″ threaded hole in the base. There may be others, please check yours before ordering this cage, thanks!

The slotted top allows hanging cable to slide through. This is how you hang the Cage and your feeder up.

To secure a feeder inside the wire age without a threaded hole in the base may be difficult, but not impossible. For example, to hang a a feeder or suet cage inside this cage, you would have to wire it VERY securely in the center of the cage, so it is suspended where blackbirds and squirrels cannot reach it, and you would have to attach the wire base to the cage in a way that is secure but is easy for you to remove (to fill the feeder). If you’re clever, you can do it!

If you do not have a feeder, and would like a recommendation just call or email. 203-245-9056

It would be super easy to ship you this cage with a feeder inside the box.
