If squirrels are eating your seed and scaring away your birds, then you need a squirrel proof bird feeder. There are many styles and designs of squirrel proof feeders. We have a selection of quality feeders that are attractive as well as functional. If you enjoy the squirrels too, as we do, you can always put up a squirrel feeder, away from the bird feeder. That way everyone is happy! Squirrels are opportunistic feeders. That is, they will find the closest and easiest source of food. Provide a feeding area for squirrels far from bird feeders. Corn and peanuts offer an inexpensive alternative to costly, custom blended bird seed. Squirrels will quickly learn to eat in their own area, leaving the well-protected or squirrel resistant feeders to the birds. One of the best ways to further protect wild bird feeders is to utilize a metal squirrel proof bird feeder with a perch bar that shuts off the seed supply under a squirrel's weight to discourage unwanted guests. Perky Pet has one that will do just that - the PP351!
