Thankfully, we aren't bothered by squirrels trying to eat at our bird feeders here at Our Little Acre. It's not that we don't have squirrels, because we do. We even had one in our house once. (THAT was fun.) But for some reason, they keep to the big oak tree in the front yard and the smaller nearby maple.
But I've seen numerous complaints by bird enthusiasts about squirrels wanting a piece of the pie that doesn't belong to them, so I know it can be a real problem for a lot of people. This bird feeder from Perky-Pet®
is designed to discourage such behavior from the squirrels. Here's how it works:
I like that this feeder is large enough to not need filling as often as smaller ones (it holds three pounds of feed). I especially like that it's so well-made, with its heavy-duty powder-coated finish. Not only that, it's an attractive feeder, and if the squirrels ever do try to eat from the feeders, we're prepared. (Pre-emptive strike!)

Since we've put up the feeder, I've seen cardinals, goldfinches, nuthatches, and numerous other birds feeding from it.
|Sparrows need to eat, too!|

I was sent the Perky-Pet® Squirrel-Be-Gone® The Baffler bird feeder free of charge to trial here at Our Little Acre. I was not required to write about the feeder, but I wanted to share it with my readers, in case they were interested in an item like this. All opinions expressed here are my own.
