Uninvited Guests at Squirrel Feeder!

(Seattle)

In an attempt to keep the squirrels out of my bird feeders, I built and mounted a squirrel feeder at the opposite end of my backyard. Well, I never expected that the squirrels would have a problem with pesky birds getting into their feeder! I caught the action on video of Stellar Jays harassing those poor squirrels to get at their dinner.

Great video, Judy. I think you could call it; "How to Drive Blue Jays Mad With Desire."
Did you buy or make your squirrel feeder?
Happy Squirreling!

Don't feed Squirrels NEW
by: Anonymous

Squirrels are vermin and pests. They eat everything in the garden, and all the fruit on the trees.

I can't believe that people build squirrel feeders. They are the last animal that needs to be violated by human feeding them. They are horribly over-populated. Please stop.

Hi,
Great video. I love the jays they give the squirrels a run for their money always stealing their corn and peanuts. The Titmouse is good at it also

I made the squirrel feeder myself from one six- foot plank of cedar fencing. It was really easy.
