Squirrel Proof Bird Feeders

Squirrel Proof Bird Feeders allow bird lovers and squirrels to co-exist peacefully. Squirrels are often the perceived enemy of many bird lovers. While squirrels provide amusement to children and noise and activity in the woods, they are seen in a different ligfht by avid bird lovers.The designs and variations in squirrel proof bird feeders range from simple to complex, with everything in between. Battery powered birdfeeders top the list with their designs to flip, tip, and spin off squirrels.

Squirrel prone regions require additional efforts be made when offering bird feeders to the bird population. Squirrels can jump up to 8 feet off the ground or off tree limbs and roof tops to get to food, so strategic placement of birdfeeders is often necessary. Choosing the correct squirrel proof birdfeeder can virtually erase this concern.

A proper squirrel proof birdfeeder should be long enough that a sqiurrel can not reach from the top of the bird feeder and stretch down to the openings. With their ability to contort their body into almost any shape, birdfeeders need to be designed with shields and cages to ceate obstacles. Newer models flip and tip as soon as the squirrels weight lands on the feeder, locking down feeding holes and spinning squirrels off. This can be quite amusing to watch, while not at all harmful to the persistant creatures.
