    Give it up!

    I tried the tips he mentioned and it did no good at all! It took them a couple of days to figure it out--I got one of those expensive feeders with the window and they just popped ou the plexiglass panel--I came home to a big fat squirrel sitting in it gorging himself. So I just threw my hands up and stopped calling it a bird feeder and started calling it a squirrel feeder! 5 stars for humor, though.

    Outwitting Squirrels

    This book is great for finding the best location for your birdfeeder. It is also fun to see how other people have failed and how the squirel got the food. The information on the different types of birds and what types of bird food is appropriate will be very helpful as well. It is a great read.
