Another Squirrel Feeder

I recently made a Squirrel feeder in an attempt to keep them from vandalizing our bird feeders. It works to a degree! I made the gallon jar supports a little more stout than most I have seen, mainly to support the glass jar and our fat Ohio Squirrels. Apparently not only are they fat, they aren’t too bright. It was several days before they discovered the feeder. This even included “hot gluing” peanuts going up the 4×4 to the jar. Once they found the treasure, they didn’t want to share, as you can see in the picture of the Squirrel guarding his cache.

-- Why buy it for $300 when you can make it for $500!!

Nice work!

Though I am not a fan of “TREE-RATS” ; it is a very neatly executed project.

Thanks. Yea, I somewhat agree with you. We like to watch them crawl into the jar and sit there eating the nuts, but they can be a nuisance. The main problem is that I’ve been eating more peanuts than I’ve been dropping into the jar!!
