Get our most popular eastern bluebird feeder along with the optional perch attachment, creating the ultimate bluebird feeding system and keeping European starlings at bay!

This feeder is designed to feed eastern bluebirds and many other species mealworms with the glass (dishwasher safe) mealworm cup and barrier guard. This baffled bluebird feeder is surrounded by sturdy vinyl coated wire mesh with 1-1/2" square openings to keep out starlings and most squirrels. The top and bottom are fully galvanized steel and powder coated in a blue finish for years of durability. 

The glass cup is 3.25" in diameter and 1" deep and holds about two handfuls of dried mealworms.  This feeder comes with a galvanized cable. The cable with the slide pulled down to secure the lid adds 12" to the height of the feeder. The feeder itself measures 14" W x 8" H. Perch makes the total width 22".   

Attracts the following birds: Eastern bluebirds, chickadees, downy woodpeckers, titmice, nuthatches, orioles, wrens, and occasionally warblers. We've had mixed reports from customers: sometimes northern mockingbirds fit and sometimes not.

You may also mount it on a 1" pole by using a Pole Adapter, sold separately.

Need more mealworm feeding capacity and a dish that's winterproof? Try swapping in this new Aluminum Replacement Dish.

This bundle includes the BBF1 feeder and the BGFPA1 perch attachment. 

Made in the USA.

Barrier Guard Bluebird Feeder

Received in perfect condition and was easy to assemble. I have installed it and the birds are really using it.

BEST PRODUCT

The Barrier Guard Bluebird Feeder with Perch - Blue Is a great product. I've had one for about 3 years and I just purchased a second one. It took the blue birds time to get used to using it, in my case several months, but, the Carolina Wrens were using it and finally the bluebirds. I have several bluebirds now that use this product. It's great for keeping the squirrels out, along with the other larger birds. Nature Niche products are GREAT & great Customer Service too.

Bluebird came to this feeder after one week.

Since starlings eat almost all of the mealworms at other feeders here, I tried this feeder in desperation. It worked after a week. A bluebird fed in it, and starlings didn’t enter the feeder. Some people said in reviews that the feeder is big. It is not big; it is enormous, especially with the optional circular perches. It sort of dominates the bird feeing area. A bit expensive; the instructions for the circular perches add on could have been more complete, but all in all, worth it and working. It’s all about the bluebirds for me.

Thanks for the review, and we're so glad your bluebirds took to it quickly! Yes, the feeder has to be that wide to prevent the European starlings from reaching their heads in and accessing the mealworm cup. The perches do add width, but we've found it helps the bluebirds perch and decide how they plan to enter. Plus, it's so adorable when they bring their fledglings, and they perch begging for food as the parents go in and out until the fledglings figure it out, too. Yes, perch assembly is a process, but that's why we included the demo video in the product description, to make things as straight forward as possible. Enjoy your bluebirds!!!

I have not put my bluebird feeder out at this time. The weather is really nasty here in North Alabama so I plan to put it out once the weather breaks. I do have a bluebird house and the bluebirds are checking it out so hopefully within the next five days, I will put my feet her out with some dried mealworms.

Bluebird feeder

I love it but I don’t yet know if bluebirds will find it. I have a bluebird house about ten yards away and water about the same. So far I have used bluebird berry mix and dried mealy worms on top. It may be a while but I will keep experimenting.

So glad you like it! We've found it helps to put a few mealworms on the top of the feeder or maybe around the floor rim, so they can see the food items as they perch and look inside. Usually the chickadees and tufted titmice figure it out first, then the bluebirds. Good luck!
