Homemade Squirrel Feeder

SquirrelGuide.com recommends that in order to keep the squirrels out of your bird feeder, you need to set up a squirrel feeder away from the bird feeder. Some people enjoy feeding squirrels because they look cute while some keep the squirrel feeder because they want to keep them away from the bird feeder. Squirrels knock over bird feeders and scatters costly seeds all over the ground. Most birds prefer to stay in flight while eating, which allows an easier escape from predators. Fewer birds visit the feeder after squirrels knock the food to the ground.
