    Thanks! Got it up yesterday before the cold weather comes in today. Filled it with black oil sunflower seeds. No birds.....or squirrels...yet! We hope the baffle works. We have some really smart and persistent squirrels in our back yard!

    You did a great job, Pat. Good luck on the squirrel front.

    I love how you used re-purposed parts and it turned out so great!

    Thanks, Douglas & Rustic Crafts. There are oak trees at the back of our yard & right now there is an abundance of acorns on the ground. We may have a battle with the squirrels when the acorns are gone....or maybe before. I have had this feeder in my mind for quite some time. I guess I just got lucky to find everything I needed at the Habitat Restore. My husband had some galvanized metal on hand to make the baffle.

    It has been up a month, and the squirrels have not attempted to outwit the baffle....yet! Right now there are plenty of acorns still on the ground. They do scurry around the base of the feeder gathering up sunflower seeds that have spilled over the edge as the birds feed.
