Very nice, the birds come to it, how it works, they are smart, thank you Angel:-))))
That is so cute Angel! I've never seen a contraption like that before! You must have made it yourself am I right? Pretty cool!! I sure hope he finally figured it out!
Sorry I missed it, pilley, but this one was new to me. Did you know squirrels can jump 5 ft. off the ground to get to a feeder? This one hangs on my gutter, so squirrels aren't a problem. I did have one of these taken off an upper tree branch. I suspect a raccoon got it. Look for drawings/puzzle tomorrow.
Great idea. My idea was posted Jan.11,1013 to keep the squirrels out of my finch feeders; upside down bowl above the feeder. Seems to work, next summer I am going to come up with something more attractive, lol. Thanks for the idea.
Would love the plans. thanks Angelbender.
Laura, most of the sparrows have learned to flip onto their backs in mid-air and snag the cage with their feet. Real acrobats. Thanks for stopping by.
I haven't had any try it, chickie, but it sure confuses mockingbirds and slows down those hogs, the starlings. I don't see why it wouldn't deter them. This is a cheap knockoff of a fancy cedar chalet type I saw. I'll draw up a plan and post it tomorrow so you can all make one. The materials list will be: a suet cage, a board with a 3" to 5" overhang on all sides, some flexible wire and a coat hanger. A drill would be nice, but you can hammer a nail through the board.
What a great idea! Does this work for squirrels too?
Poor guy. I hope he figured it out.
