I felt pity for the squirrel to have experience that one. I am caring many squirrels with license from the authorities. That's why I am so sad for this one.

Vern - when you can feed the birds without the squirrels dominating, it really makes a difference, doesn't it??
Lana - car bills are the most frustrating! Somehow you always feel taken-advantage-of.


Thanks for the tip! I'll have to keep it in mind for the future (as this month has brought us over $3000 in home & car repair bills that I doubt we'll surmount in time for "the holidays." *wince*)


I'm glad there is a squirrel proof feeder now that actually works. One of the reasons I gave up feeding a couple of years back was because I was really feeding the squirrels rather than the birds.

The Zen Birdfeeder

Mon@rch - they do make a difference in your birdfeeding, don't they?
Lana - I'm lucky. I don't have raccoons to deal with! I would recommend the Absolute feeder mounted on a baffled pole.


That last picture's funny. The squirrel has a look of "well, dang it!" on his face. I'll have to see if I can't find some way to hang feeders out of reach of the raccoons, which have torn apart almost everything I've ever put up.


I live by my Squirrel Proof feeder! Work like a charm!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
