Aiding and Abetting

Maintaining my birdfeeders is perhaps my most whimsical activity. It's embarrassing to confess that I'm emotionally attached to the members of my outdoor aviary. Helping them survive the winter months brings me cheer. So I'm torn when hawks swoop in for a kill. I'm complicit in each brutal murder. Still, it's an unbelievably cool thing to witness.

    How do you keep squirrels out of the feeder?

    My trusty Red Ryder. That, and an aggressive trapping program.

    I'd like to devise a way to allow the hawks access to captured live squirrels, but I haven't perfected that task yet.

    I have 6 feeders & a heated birdbath. One of my feeders is a Yankee Flipper. Two others are metal & have weight sensitive.
