The twenty year old bird feeder that the house came with finally surrendered to the squirrels. Mother wanted a replacement, so I made it a Christmas present. Not the finest work, but should hold up. Pressure treated structure with copper sheet over a plywood roof panel. Got one of those fancy fence caps from Lowes to finish the top.

Usually the squirrels dont care if it’s a fancy feeder or an old hubcap… but this one is NICE!
And should last a long time to boot!

That is awesome! Love the copper roof. You must have first class birds to deserve that ;-))

Great looking feeder, I really like the storage tube in the middle. I just hope the copper thieves don’t see it.

Beautiful bird feeder. Do you have any trouble with squirrels helping themselves to the seed? I used to and almost gave up feeding the birds, then I discovered vinyl 4.125×4.125” white fence post that will receive a 4” x 4” post. Squirrels can’t climb up the post because the girth is greater than their little paws will reach. I am now building a bird feeding resort that won’t accommodate squirrels [hehehehe].

Unfortunately, the squirrels here have ample access from the bushes and pergola nearby, so a bigger post wouldn’t have too much of an effect. But, we like watching the squirrels too, and so does the dog, so it works out alright. Good luck with your feeder.

Have your say...
