Finally-a good bird feeder.
Lens: 18-250 Pentax Camera: K5 Photo Location: Saugus 
Posted By: charliezap, 04-14-2013, 05:56 PM

Nothing makes my blood pressure go up like when the squirrels and big birds like the starlings and grackles can empty a feeder in one day.This feeder I got at Lowe's for $35 ( a bit pricey) but it works great.The finches-sparrows-titmouse-nuthatches can get inside very easily but the pig birds can't.The gold finches are turning yellow and maybe in a day or so I will nail one at the feeder with the Bigma.If this post helps out anyone then my work is done for the day.--charlie "birdman" zap.

That's a good idea to keep the fox out of the henyard.

So it's Otis proof... but for how long, they'll be working on a cunning plan as we speak.

Ask Rupert, he seems to have the inside info on all things squirrel.

With me it's doves, but I have developed a pigeon and dove proof feeder (also almost everything proof as a matter of fact)


I don't see much of Otis either

So far it's working fine.The big birds can't get past the bars but the small ones hop in and out with no problem.--charliezap

I give the squirrel a max of two weeks to figure out how to get into that feeder Charlie. You might give Lowell's trick a try.

Good luck with that one Charlie.

I'm pretty much convinced there is no such thing as a squirrel proof feeder. I spent about a $150 bucks on one a month or so back and the squirrels are already taking over.

Tis has taken a year of "training" in fact I think I have a family of hawks. I previously posted the photo of a mature bird, sitting in a tree in the corner of my yard, and an immature one sitting about 4 feet away from the feeder. This ones an immature bird not sure if it is the same one as previously
