I put up a crank up bird feeder. I have always had trouble with squirrels and an occasional bear on or destroying our bird feeders. This feeder keeps all of the varmints from being on the feeders.
The crank up feeder was easy to install. The post is all aluminum and made for outside conditions.
The birds love it. Four feeders, offering up a variety of feed. More feeders makes for more birds feeding.
If you are a serious bird feeder this feeder may work for you.
I purchased this locally from
Crabtree's Garden Gate - Marine on St Croix, MN 55047
