Currently Im on a losing battle with a pair of these tree rats......my bird feeder gives me great pleasure, and costs money to fill....it is right outside my window, but, if I want to enjoy watching birds it has to be just 4 ft from a wall, so a relatively easy jump for a grey squirrel. I wouldn’t mind, except that they spend ages filling up cheek pouches, go off to bury the food, then return for more....bars at 3 inch intervals stops the pigeons, because they are too thick to work out how to turn their shoulders like the crow family do.. Little birds have no problems.

A powerful, long range water-pistol gets rid of the squirrels for half an hour then they’re back, I must look like a Jack -in-The-Box to my neighbours ....popping in and out, to shoot water with a deadly aim.

I’m experimenting with square holes that will allow a sparrow, Robin or blue tint etc, but uncomfortable for a Squirrel ......it’s all a matter of experiment and observation....

Question?...... Am I cleverer than a flippin’ Squirrel ?

It’s WAR I tell you....WAR ! 🤓😬😬👹😬

All suggestions except air-guns will be considered....I live close to a busy road.

If your feeder is on a pole a large disc of floppy plastic or soft rubber placed below the feed may help. Best of luck
