Here's a picture of a squirrel feeder I built. I didn't like the commercial model, and I'm a carpenter, so I did what comes naturally.

This one is "Feeder version 2.0". The first one ended up too near the fence it was mounted on. The squirrels could grab the fence with hind feet and stretch to reach the cobs. A 'design flaw'.

I just finished the re-design and it goes back on the fence tomorrow.

My husband just built this squirrel feeder. We call it the "Nut Hut Cafe". We put peanuts in it about 9 am. By 11 am, it's empty. We only fill it once a day, but we get lots of entertainment from it. :0)
