What Is The Best Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder?
Believe It or Not…It’s a Slinky!
Squirrel bafflers can work for some squirrels. But not for all. Some will figure out how to bypass them. But I was determined to have a squirrel-proof bird feeder. I have some great success and fun with giving squirrels their own feeders. But there were always some little stinkies that got to my bird feeder for the birds.
Best Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder
Fortunately I finally found the Best Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder. It is a slinky. Yes…a slinky. The bird feeder in the picture is the one I want birds to use only. It has 2 slinkies attached to the pole. So these 2 particular slinkies on Amazon are the winners! Here’s the 2 below that worked for me:
At first I had just one larger slinky in place. This worked for the red and grey squirrels. When they tried to climb up the pole they’d go back down. The slinky worked great. And it was funny to watch. But a little chipmunk affectionately known as TinyPU got passed the bigger slinky. She was climbing up the pole inside the big slinky. So I added a Slinky JR.
Now no squirrels or chipmunks go to that feeder for birds. They only go to the squirrel feeders. These squirrel feeders on Amazon below keep them busy and entertain me and my pets:
