Squirrel Proof

When I first saw this unusual bird feeder at the Veterans Centre I thought it was impossible for any birds to get peanuts but it turns out that the ones with long thin beaks like the Red-breasted Nuthatch have no trouble at all. They poke through the openings and get the peanuts out of the shells while the resident squirrels find it impossible to get anything.

That's a pretty nice bird feeder. The squirrels no doubt will try and find a solution. It might take time but you can't count them out. :)

Fine Nuthatch photo on this unique feeder. Never have seen one like it.

I love to watch how enterprising birds (and squirrels) can be when it comes to getting at the food.

A pretty bird.

Sooner or later the squirrels will crack it.

Joy for the birds, sorrow and frustration for the squirrels.

That's neat! It is shaped like an old fashioned coffee pot.

What a cute feeder Pat, always amazed at the many styles. I feed the birds way up in the back garden but a bit reluctant to put one in the trees closer to the house incase they attract rats! Lovely to see the little birds feeding 💙
