Squirrels have proven to much for every feeder we have put our this winter.
Two were attached to the front window and the squirrels managed to dislodge and break both of them.
We were then naive enough to think that if we got one that hung from the tree, it might be safer. The squirrel managed to eat the entire contents of the feeder every 3 days. It wasn’t until Bob went out to fill the feeder, that we found the squirrel was eating more then the seeds.
So it’s back to the drawing board. Bob is now thinking that maybe we need a flat feeder sort of like a bird bath. It will be no problem for the squirrels to hoover, but it may be more resistant to rodent gnawing. Maybe something like this for example.
Otherwise that squirrel is going to have to forage for himself….
