A New Squirrel-Proof Suet Feeder
Late yesterday, UPS delivered a new upside-down squirrel-proof bird feeder. Before the sun disappeared over the bluffs, I filled it with a peanut butter suet cake and hung it from from the pole outside my kitchen window.
When I got up this morning, it was snowing. Birds were everywhere.
Everywhere but on my new feeder.
Okay. I'm impatient. I admit it.
Eventually a downy woodpecker will find it. Before I could finish that thought, it became a reality. Just like that - a female downy woodpecker gave it a try.
I like this feeder. It's easy to fill and easy to clean (it fits in my dishwasher). The big birds can access it and it's easy on the eyes. It does a great job protecting the suet from dust, dirt and bird droppings.
While I don't have a squirrel challenge, I know what they can do. I can't see squirrels getting to this one.
