Dove Guard for Sky Cafe Bird Feeder | Stop Doves

Calculated at checkout

Product Description

The Sky Cafe Dove Guard is the perfect solution for unwanted doves and other large birds! This is a favorite Sky Cafe Bird Feeder accessory in Texas for deterring those pesky white winged doves.  It also stops other large birds and hinders grackles from sweeping away seed.  

12" in diameter. Comes with attaching strap locks to attach to tray.  Made from vinyl coated steel. This is an accessory for the Sky Cafe Bird Feeder.  *Lifetime Warranty against squirrel damage* *Made in the U.S.A.*

Please keep in mind that Cardinals can be skittish, and it may take them a little longer to adjust to the Dove Guard. Continue feeding the birds and they'll eventually warm up to the new accessory.

 Dove Guard Instructions:

1. Place the wire mesh guard onto the tray with the flared end up.

2. Loop the 6 black plastic ties through each slot on the outer edge of the Sky Cafe tray and around the bottom wire of the guard.

3. Connect the plastic tie to itself, pull tight, then cut off the end fairly close to the knot for a finished look.

Watch the instructional video below - step by step instructions on how to attach the Dove Guard to the Sky Cafe Bird Feeder.

(This is for the Sky Cafe Bird Feeder, not the Mandarin Bird Feeder)

  1. Great Dove Guard 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Oct 2023

    The guard works as advertised. It is a slight bit larger than the feeder, but it works quite well. Birds are still enjoying the feeder without the pesky dove hoarding all the seed.

  2. It Works 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2023

    After a week of observing the new guard, I can confirm it keeps the mourning droves away. Sadly the grackles still come and eat the sunflower seeds but now it is one by one instead of sweeping them out of the feeder and emptying it. I've also seen some of the smaller birds using it. If only it could stop the grackles altogether it would be perfect.

  3. A Must Have! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2022

    If you have the Sky Cafe, the Dove Guard is a must have otherwise the Doves will keep all the other birds from coming. After putting this on all the smaller birds including the Cardinals are eating hassle free while the Doves just watch. Easy to install. I highly recommend it!

  4. just have patience! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Feb 2022

    Why you need to have patience to put this on, it won't go in the drain holes , there are SLITS in the bottom of the feeder made to fit. Get a chair and sit down , it will take a few minutes. Enjoy! such a great thing!

  5. Great for keeping Starlings and Grackles out! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Dec 2021

    I put the Dove Guard on my Sky Cafe feeder to keep Starlings and Grackles out of the bird food. Works great, and the openings are wide enough for Cardinals to get to the food. Highly recommend.

  6. DOVE GUARD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Oct 2021

    Love it. No doves or grackles


    Posted by on 12th Jan 2021

    Anyone who experiences grackles and starlings will agree: We need these for every bird feeder.

  8. Perfect accessory for my SkyCafe Feeder 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2020

    The SkyCafe Feeder is simply the best bird feeder made. Mine has survived multiple bear attacks, and when used with a deflector on the mounting post, is completely squirrel proof. My timeless issue has been with gangs of bullying blue jays, we live in the Green Mtns of VT. This 'Dove Guard' is perfect for keeping big birds away. My chickadees approve 100% !

  9. So far so good! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2020

    I've watched doves unsuccessfully try to land on the feeder, which is quite comical. I was concerned that the cardinals wouldn't visit the feeder, but they have figured it out.

  10. Stops Doves 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Sep 2020

    Cardinals are apprehensive at first, but they will get use to it soon. The doves are upset. They can't find an opening. They clean the ground if any feed falls out. Great product. The space between the lid and the dove guard is too small. Needs about a 1/2 to 1 inch more for the cardinals to be more willing to get inside quickly.
