The new feeder
Lens: 55-300mm pentax Camera: k5 Photo Location: saugus ma. 
Posted By: charliezap, 11-18-2014, 05:49 PM

I put up a new feeder the other day and the birds seem to like it and the squirrels can only get a very few seeds and give up.The new one is a triple tube with adjustable openings for small seed (nijer) and a flip up that allows the bigger seed.It was a bargain for only $20."Feed them and they will come"--charliezap

Nice one Charlie. I have one of the Squirrel be gone's, but the buggers have chewed the plastic by the hole, enlarging it and gorging on the seed. This one looks much better built. Question though, the short beaked birds, can still reach the feed?

Wow, that bird feeder is really attracting the birds en masse.

About a week ago we bought a couple of new, additional feeders. We have a squirrel problem both Red and Gray's.

This one so far, seems to have solved our squirrel problem.

I think we might just start calling you the "Bird Whisperer".

Thanks for posting this Charlie. I want to set up a feeder for this winter, but we have a squirrel to bird ratio of at least 10:1, so I've been reluctant just to put out something to feed the squirrels. I'll have to see if I can get something like that here.

To answer your question the short beaked birds have no problem with this feeder.The sparrows for an example can stick their entire head in the seed opening without any problems. --charliezap

Your new feeder is approved! I should do something similar... except my backyard is a bit small.
