We let the squirrels into our feeder—they are fun to watch—but then they thought the basement would make a new home. It cost me $700 in new insulation. Now I’m trying to figure out how to make one that feeds only birds.
Yours is really a cute idea. That first picture is great. Nice job.

I think he may be at the XXXX Gold Tap.
A great Project and even greater picture capturing the squirrel, no such chance with our possums they would be gone in a shot!

I have been told that if sprinkle hot chili powder on the seed, it will deter the squirrel and not effect the birds as they are not supposed to taste it.I once made a squirrel feeder that was a round table with a chair. A spike through the table held an ear of corn and the squirrel would sit in the chair and eat the corn.

Kepy is right, we use ‘HOT’ bird seed, available from some hardware stores or those boutique shops that cater to specific wild bird species feed.A great concept for a bird-feeder! Especially like the bar stool perches!

Great looking saloon feeder. If you want to make a squirrel proof feeder, one way is to mount the feeder ona steel tube, well away from trees and other objects they can use as a launching point, then hang a piece of4” vent or stove pipe over the tube from the bottom of the feeder. They can still eat the scattered feed, birds are messy eaters, but can not hog the feeder. Thank you for sharing.
