Does anyone have any ideas on how to prevent confident squirrels from stealing bird feed and feeders!
2 Weeks ago I moved to a new home with a garden and within 12 hours a squirrels was all over my peanut cage bird feeder. When I got home later the next day the bird feeder had disappeared! Last Friday I bought 2 ceramic open bird feeder on metal sticks which I have placed in the center of the garden - within a day the squirrels had figured out how to climb up the slim pole and sit happily devouring the nuts inside the ceramic feeder.
Are there any types of feed that birds love but squirrels hate - or can anyone suggest a squirrel proof bird feeder?
Please help me to encourage birds into my little garden and put off the bolshy urban squirrels!
