This is my whole bird feeder set up. I have this set up outside my kitchen window. If I am sitting at the table or standing at the sink, I can see all the action! Having all these different kinds of feeders and bird food, I attract many different kinds of birds and have a lot of action going on all the time all year around!
Squirrels may be cute, but they really are pests. They can wipe out all your bird feeder food in just one sitting. Your bird feeder pole should be 10 feet away from your house and trees. Squirrels can jump up to 8 feet. You definitely need a squirrel baffle.
