Hi everyone . Here are a few pics of my third log style squirrel feeder .
This feeder is made from white cedar .
It is also the first time using orange paint on the roof . It kinda matches the bottle .
Now that i know the squirrels will use them i will be building a lot more of them . Orders are beginning to come in for them already :-)

Will it keep the Damn Squirrels Outta my other 2 Bird Feeders??

Silly Question, Right? I should be more concerned about the Hole they just found that lets them into my ATTIC!!

Cool design John. Is it just a feeder or does the squirrel move on in and make himself a home?

Thanks everyone for the great comments ! Darrell i think they would nest in them but they would have to be 20 or 30 ft in the air

John,
What kind of jars did you use? I really like these and want to build a few!

Thanks Cozmo ! The jars are plastic cool aid jugs from a local dollar store . They cost $ 2.00 each .
I like them because of the colours and they are easy to replace if need be .

HA! SO COOL! I love it!
Are those 1 gallon jugs or 1/2 gallon? Are there threads in the wood or is just tight and gravity held?

Thanks rivergirl and Dan ! The jug is roughly 3/4 of a gallon and they just fit in snug as a bug :-)
