my rogue squirrels have made me almost give up feeding my birds...mainly because they have destroyed every bird feeder i have hung and are currently pulling apart/breaking my hummingbird feeder to get at the sweet syrup within. so needless to say, i am frustrated and reluctant to put more feeders out for fear of further encouraging them. it should be noted i have tried to distract the furry rodents with specific squirrel snacks, which they also eat. today i saw this wonderful modern bird feeder from designer thomas stanley: thee apple is cool! however, it appears to me the squirrels could get inside and recline while they munched on other's seeds...maybe i will just hang it up and look at it.
