Bird Feeder Part 2

February 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I think I finally squirrel proofed my bird feeder!

I purchased two sections of PVC pipe from Lowe's (4 inch diameter).
Then I placed those two sections over the metal pole. Because of
the diameter of the pipe, the squirrels have a hard time wrapping their
little paws around. I also squirted some Pam on the pipes, so its even
slipperier.
 

I also placed a slinky on top of the pipe. So if the squirrel did make his
way past the pipe, he'd grab the Slinky and fall to the ground.
 

Figuring more is better, I also placed an 18 inch baffle between the
Slinky and the feeder. I also sprayed that with Pam.
 

After a couple of days, zero squirrels have reached the top of my
feeder.
 

I'm pretty sure the birds love me :)
