a cage around the food. No squirrel has been able to beat it yet. I put out peanuts in the shell for them and they have been come very friendly to me.

6. Being a furry, I put on the squirred outfit late at night and raid the neighbor's bird feeders.

This may or may not work for you.

When a squirrel tries to eat from the feeder his weight closes off the feeding ports to deny him access to the food. You can also adjust the tension to make it sensitive enough to shut down on the large starlings or blackbirds. Backyard birds average 0.3 2.0 ounces while blackbirds are about 4 ounces and squirrels are about a pound.
